Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes was officially revealed earlier today in none other than Hollywood, CA. Disney and Marvel put on quite the show, using Avenger icons such as Nick Fury and Agent Coulson (Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg, respectively) to assemble the announcement and welcome Disney Interactive president, Jimmy Pitaro to the stage. Pitaro introduced Disney 2.0’s official title, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, then proceeded to let this amazing trailer do most of the introducing. Check it out below, if you have not yet had the privilege.
Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes is going to be big, and an entire overhaul of game mechanics will be updated, Toy Box and all. New heroes, villains, power discs, play sets and never seen before features are all in store for this super-hyped sequel. I’ve compiled a in-depth look at over 12 characters below.
The first confirmed characters are the six Avengers. So far, the Avengers have been the only physical toys we have seen, though the trailer alone has debuted a whole mess of characters, some more obvious than others.
- Captain America
- Iron Man
- Black Widow
- The Hulk
Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye (Figures)
Iron Man (Figure)
Thor, Black Widow (Figures)
Hawkeye (In Game)
Iron Man (In Game)
Captain America (In Game)
Many other characters were hinted at during the trailer, ranging from Rocket and Groot from Guardians Galaxy
all the way to Spider Man and MODOK, who first debuted in a Captain America
comic book series.
- Spider Man
- Green Goblin*
- MODOK (Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing)
- Rocket Raccoon
- Nick Fury
Groot and Rocket
MODOK and Loki
*As you may notice, Green Goblin is not the traditional Green Goblin you are used to seeing. After some research, I realized he was Green Goblin from Disney’s Ultimate Spider Man. Here is a reference image to compare! Samuel L. Jackson informed us (via Nick Fury) that we will learn about many more characters during E3 2014 this June, and we will be there to give you the best coverage!
That wraps up everything I know about characters in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, but what have you learned? Know about a character I haven’t listed? Leave your discoveries in the comments below, and as always, keep it locked at Dope Since the 90’s!
