Chun Li, Dante, Captain America, Felicia definitely in MvC3

The big news of the day: Marvel vs Capcom 3 has finally been confirmed and it's on track for a 2011 release. The teaser trailer revealed Iron Man, Hulk, Wolverine, Ryu, Chris Redfield and Morrigan, but take a second look and you'll notice those character outlines are clear indicators of who else will make the cut.

Captain America, Dr. Doom and Deadpool are surefire hits, while the fourth and fifth characters have us a bit stumped. Four could be Hawkeye, but it could also be a Super Skrull (that point could be an ear instead of a mask), which is in keeping with Capcom's desire to feature characters that have become more popular since 2000. As for the fifth... we're not sure at all. Help us out in the comments?

And even though he's not pictured, we bet plenty of our GR cash that Thor makes it in. He's got a movie next year, he was a helper in the first MvC and he's a bigger player in the Marvel Universe now that he's center-stage in The Siege. There's also a slight chance "Dr Doom" up there could be The Hood, but uh, let's hope not.

Our money's on Dante as the lead character here (another post-2000 biggie), Chun Li is right behind him and Felicia from Darkstalkers appears to be the final person, but those middle two are the mysteries. Capcom girl with heels and some kind of braid or dangling head piece? Then the next is just some dude. Could be Frank West or Wesker, but the former was just in Tatsunoko vs Capcom and the latter would be a second Resident Evil character. Captain Commando? Any ideas?

This art re-affirms Super Skrull (upper left), Chun Li and Deadpool (lower left) Felicia and Captain America (lower right) and Dante (next to Chris' hand). We can't identify the shapely woman behind Deadpool (Spider-Woman?) or the fiery thing under the Super Skrull, nor the remaining two blobs near Chris' arm.

If you can't name 'em either, Capcom will likely reveal the rest of these at E3, making for a total of 16 known characters. According to our information, that leaves about 16 to go. Let the speculation begin!

    The fiery one thehyre talking about might be Ghost Rider...

    Ok, I believe one of them is truly super skrull. Here's how I know: 1) in this interview: The produces states that none of the Fantastic 4 characters made into MVC3: "From the Marvel side there were a couple we were considering using, such as some of the Fantastic Four characters, but for various reasons we just couldn't implement them, or they weren't on the right table but Marvel came back and said "why not use this character instead", and we responded "oh, okay that's fine", but unfortunately we couldn't get any of the Fantastic Four into the game." 2) Instead of adding all fantastic 4 on the roster, they added Super Skrull and this image verifies it: 3) I noticed Hawkeye doesn't have point shoulders, take a look: and they are working the game with the normal universe, not the ultimate.

    am i the only one who thinks doctor strange could be in it
  • mastershake1128 - April 22, 2010 12:11 a.m.

    just doubtful that 1. they would put trish in since shes not really a fan favorite 2. they would put her and dante both in the silhouette, it seems like they tried to seperate people from the same game to be in the trailer and the silhouettes 3.DmC 4 was kind of weak and the series is losing steam, so putting anything more than Dante in the game is a bit overdoing it My other guess was Kyoko from Rival Schools, the kinda sexy nurse, but she wears a jacket and in the second picture you can clearly see that whoever it is is either sleeveless or wearing REALLY tight clothes, which led me to believe it was Jill in her RE5 outfit, but the hair doesnt match that, and Jill isnt really a feminine character
  • mastershake1128 - April 22, 2010 12:05 a.m.

    Marvel is from Left to Right Captain America, Doctor Doom, Deadpool, Super Skrull (a Fant. 4 villain who was augmented to have all 4 of their powers in 1, my prediction is this is marvels ploy to get the Fan 4 in the game without wasting 4 char. slots, and lastly... Dormammu, a bit of a random pick since no one knows who the hell he is, but he fits the picture perfectly and if you read up on him on Marvel's website hes actually pretty badass I really still want to know who the middle Capcom woman is so badly... could be Trish but the armband is on the wrong arm, unless shes turned backwards in the 2nd picture? Newho, whoever it is has longish hair, no sleeves and wears pretty tight pants with heels, trish fits perfect
  • mastershake1128 - April 22, 2010 12:01 a.m.

    Here's what they are... Capcom in order from Left to Right... Felicia (sorta looks like Joe, but the feet are clawed) Frank West (So what if he was in TvC, Dead Rising 2 is close and Capcom wants them dolla bills) This person is the only one i cant get... My guess was Trish, but if you look at the poster picture, she has an armband sort of thingy on her right arm, but Trish has her band thingy on her left, and Capcom made sure to note this in EVERY game she appeared in, even Viewtiful Joe. Next is obviousl Chun Li, and after that is Dante
  • BurntToShreds - April 21, 2010 11:46 p.m.

    Yeah, the guy under Chris' glove is either Frank West or Nathan Spencer (Bionic Commando Rearmed version). I'm leaning towards Frank because the silhouette looks very similar to the first pic that comes up on Google Image Search. The guy on the far right of the Capcom logo looks like it might be Gene from GodHand.
  • WiLdFiRe567 - April 21, 2010 11:34 p.m.

    The Fiery guy is Ghost Rider for sure
  • MAiNESET - April 21, 2010 11 p.m.

    the hooded character could be moon knight.
  • SuC915 - April 21, 2010 9:47 p.m.

    Im hoping for Blade the vampire hunter but that prbably wont happen am i alone in this?
  • LKabongUno - April 21, 2010 4:19 p.m.

    *yawn* someone call me when Capcom vs SNK3 comes out.
  • BennyP - April 21, 2010 4 p.m.

    The last Capcom character could be Viewtiful Joe...
  • marioman50 - April 21, 2010 6:19 a.m.

    On the bottom picture (right under chris' glove) is definitely frank west. Compare that silhouette to frank west's character art in tatsunoko vs capcom.
  • linkganon - April 21, 2010 2:46 a.m.

    hmm, well mystery capcom man appears to be frank because of the fact that just some dude fits the description of frank west, and he became popular in the 2nd half of the 2000s. i can almost guarantee that mega man will make the cut, as he always has in the past. need i remind you mega man is one of their flagship characters. zero, well maybe, since he is a popular character and there were people who begged for him to be in Tatsunoku vs Capcom. i'd be surprised if spider man didn't make the cut as well, (comic version, not the tobey maguire version), if fantastic 4 don't make it, not a big deal for me. Nick Fury is a maybe since he's on iron man 2, war machine, maybe as a second costume for iron man or a seperate character, and at least one more mutant (cyclops maybe?)... son of a *****, there's a lot of Marvel characters, too many to mention.
  • wrapdump - April 21, 2010 12:56 a.m.

    Pleeeeeeeeeease let the mystery chick be Sheva. In fact I've convinced myself it is. That's alright then.
  • Amnesiac - April 20, 2010 9:47 p.m.

    @Major_Wuss: The silhouettes in the official trailer all but confirm Deadpool. And really, that's all I ever needed.
  • Major_Wuss - April 20, 2010 9:44 p.m.

    Perhaps the fiery thing is- - Ghost Rider - The Human Torch - Firelord And I really, really want Deadpool to be in this game. Chimichanga!
  • 510BrotherPanda - April 20, 2010 8:34 p.m.

    If they have Ameterasu, I will think about buying a PS3. Maybe not.
  • Zeb364 - April 20, 2010 7:58 p.m.

    I think the fiery thing under the super skrull might be Ghost Rider. I hope not though.
  • Samael - April 20, 2010 7:46 p.m.

    Man, I hope the fire guy under Super Skrull is Ghost Rider, but those shoulder-things just throw me off....
