Marvel’s Avengers might not have Hawkeye (yet), but we’ve already seen several major Marvel characters, like mainstays Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Black Widow. Antagonists like Taskmaster and Abomination have also been confirmed, while at E3 we also saw a glimpse of Hank Pym’s Ant-Man.
At the game’s recent appearance at the Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con, with some fresh footage, the game confirmed the appearance of one more character- Kamala Khan, also known as Ms. Marvel, who was seen (as a young girl) in one scene wearing a Captain Marvel shirt, before being affected by some leaking Terrigen Mist, which, of course, is something comic book readers will be familiar with (via Reddit).
Popular theories online right now suggest she is the one who was narrating the game’s E3 trailer (which would also go in line with her general personality, actually). Meanwhile, though the footage of the prologue that was shown at SDCC showed her as a young woman, considering the fact that everything in the game after the prologue takes place after a time jump of five years, it’s possible that she goes on to have a major role to play in the story (and maybe even appear as a playable character).
Gameplay demo footage shown for Marvel’s Avengers at SDCC will be released to the general public at the end of August following Gamescom, but attendees have started leaking footage already, which shows graphical improvements and alternate costumes. Take a look at those through here.
Marvel’s Avengers is out on May 15, 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
