You thought the EA/NFL deal was long?  Well Activision and Marvel have inked a deal that will keep Spider-man and the X-men games with Activision through 2017 according to this post on GameGossip.  I can't say that I'm disappointed or surprised by this as Activision has done a pretty good job with both franchises (I've really enjoy the two X-men Legends games the reaction to Ultimate Spider-man seems to be positive).  Hopefully they don't fall into a creative rut like a certain other franchise that features a large ex-NFL football coach.
