“You’ve Become Part of a Bigger Universe”
Just a few days ago, we got our first look at Marvel’s Avengers game by Square Enix. Whether or not you like the look of the Avengers in the trailer, you cannot deny that you want to see more. Like, right now. What other heroes will we see? What gameplay elements will there be? Not too much is explained in the trailer other than the story, but there is evidence that suggests there are more Marvel’s Avengers characters behind the scenes, much like in the movies. And no one is more behind the scenes than Nick Fury.
In a leaked gameplay video on Reddit, we get a longer look at the battle in San Francisco. It’s low quality, it has glare, but it also has secrets Square Enix has not yet revealed. There are a few mentions of Nick Fury, which should not be too surprising. He is after all the director of SHIELD and there is a helicarrier shot down, and SHIELD is most widely associated with helicarriers. Another teaser shows what appears to be a retired Hank Pym, the OG Ant-Man. He may not be a founding Avenger in this game, but in the comics he and Janet Van Dyne AKA the Wasp were.
We know Hank Pym will play some sort of role in Marvel’s Avengers and Nick Fury is all but confirmed, but who else will we see? Will Janet Van Dyne be the other side of the Hank Pym coin in the game? Will we see a different iteration of the Avengers like West Coast or Secret Avengers? All of this is speculation at this point, but we will have to just wait and see. Marvel’s Avengers comes out on May 15th, 2020 on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Google Stadia.
What other characters do you think we will see? Let us know in the comments below.
