Disney Interactive made the addition of Marvel characters to Disney Infinity official at a media event Wednesday morning in Hollywood, CA with the unveiling of the upcoming “Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes.” The “2.0” incarnation of the free-ranging “toys to life” video game franchise is scheduled for release in fall 2014, starting with the Avengers of the massively successful 2012 film — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye — with more characters set to follow.
Beyond the Avengers, a trailer also showed, on the villain side, Loki, M.O.D.O.K. and copious crowds of Frost Giants, plus “Guardians of the Galaxy” fixtures Rocket Raccoon and Groot, Iron Patriot, recent movie star The Winter Soldier and — briefly, at the very end — Green Goblin and Spider-Man, the only “Infinity 2.0” characters showed at the event outside the purview of the Marvel Studios film franchise. Additionally, the game will add new Power Disc-activated vehicles, including a “sky cycle,” a mini-Helicarrier and S.H.I.E.L.D. hovercar Lola, straight from “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
