At a teaser-filled reveal event for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, characters ranging from Rocket Raccoon to Spider-Man were hinted at as future inclusions; officially, however, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk, and Hawkeye were announced. The former three Avengers will be bundled with a new Disney Infinity starter pack, complete with a Marvel-themed Play Set for the trio to be unleashed in.
Penned by legendary comic book scribe Brian Michael Bendis, the campaign will unfold in Marvel’s Manhattan, which is in the process of freezing over thanks to an army of Frost Giants summoned by Loki. While this original Avengers tale will--like previous story-focused sets--provide 4-6 hours of play time, its world is four times larger than that of the Incredibles’ Metroville, previously the largest Disney Infinity Play Set universe. Of course, these Marvel characters, settings, and stories barely scratch the super-heroic surface; as with the first Disney Infinity, Marvel Super Heroes will be continually supported by new figures, Play Sets, and Power Discs.
