    13. Groot/Rocket Raccoon
    14. Crystal/Lockjaw

    Have I missed anyone else confirmed?
    Scarlet Witch only.

    I think Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Hawkeye, Doctor Strange are very safe bets.
    I think Wasp, Ant-Man, Winter Soldier, Storm are also very likely.

    We'll see who else gets in

    Yeah I just noticed her on the team picture after I posted that. I also assume that Lockjaw is an ally for Crystal in the same way Rocket appears to be for Groot, unless he’s his own character... if we’re having Inhumans I would like to see Black Bolt, Medusa and of course Kamala’s Ms Marvel, who should definitely be in alongside Squirrel Girl as fan favourites.

    Is Namor in it?

    Probably not, considering he is not in a single freaking game Marvel has put out since ... 2006? The first Ultimate Alliance. And IIRC, he wasn't playable then.

    So, yet again, I won't be buying or playing this game.

    Namor’s rights seem to have gotten complicated in recent times, so even though he appeared in MUA1 (and I think was playable in one of the portable versions) by 2013 when the first LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game was released at a time virtually every character was allowed (this was a year before the Marvel Fox media breakdown with Ike Perlmutter getting ticked at Fox refusing to sell Fantastic Four and having the first successful non Avengers movie with DOFP) Namor wasn’t allowed to appear according to Travelers Tales. So I presume sometime between 2006 and 2013 his rights in media became too complicated, possibly because of Universal’s idea about making a stand-alone Namor film since they had the film rights. So I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you.

    He was playable in the GBA version along with Vision and I believe Jean Grey

    Hopefully we see the FF. Otherwise, I'm sure we'll see all the people we're looking forward to seeing and this looks fun. I already have a Switch, so that helps.

    Namor wasn’t in LEGO marvel superheroes so I think it’s unlikely. What a shame. At least until the rights come back

    looks budget like they ported a mobile game.

    Not sure if this will live up to the other versions

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    I'm not holding my breath, at all. Marvel has mistreated the character for over a decade.

    Rights are not complicated if you _want_ to use the character. See Hulk, Spidey, X-men, FF, etc. Marvel, for whatever reason, doesn't want to, despite the fact that Namor has appeared in several major story lines that are being used in the games and movies, or that's he intertwined with 80 years of MU history, or that he offers an amazing and unique visual setting.

    The animation and character designs reminded me of a more upscale Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite.

    I doubt there is going to be much continuity with this and past Ultimate Alliance games.

    I mean, they're just slowly lifting the media embargo for the X-Men, so I think we'll have to wait a little longer before the FF are prominent again.

    I'm surprised neither she nor Black Panther were in the trailre.

    Was there any continuity between the first two? I remember the 'sequel' being more about game style than a continuing story, but it's been loooong time.

    People not in the trailer I would almost guarantee will still show up:

    Black Panther (duh)
    Captain Marvel (also duh)
    Daredevil (the fact that the Hand are seen in the trailer is a dead giveaway)
    Ms. Marvel (since they're using the Inhumans, they're definitely going to use the most popular one)
    Storm (a mainstay in the previous two games, and if the X-Men are back in use she's a shoe-in)
    Cyclops (see above)
    Deadpool (insanely popular, and a mainstay of the previous games)
    Ant-Man (Scott Lang)
    Wasp (could go either way but wouldn't be surprised if it were Hope or Nadia)

    If it's a success I guarantee we'll see some of the Eternals and Shang-Chi as DLC.

    The question is, will we see playable villains? Because if so, Loki, Magneto and Venom are givens.

    Very loose. There are some scattered references to the first game in the sequel (I think Thor mentions that Odin has imprisoned Loki and Doom for their crimes), but the plot is mostly standalone.

    There were some references to the events of the first game but they were more side-stuff and not really important to the main story.

    I hope we get Nolan North as Deadpool back if he's in this (although John Kassir was a franchise staple...)

    I could also see them making the Goblin playable since he was in MUA2.

    I wonder if Fury will be playable?

    I think exclusives are usually a bad call but given that Spider-Man is Sony’s baby and they had Insommiac involved I guess I can’t entirely complain if Nintendo and Team Ninja resolved to do the same. It still stupid though given the original audience of MUA 1 and 2 would have come from the PS3 and X-Box consoles. Ignoring that older audience alongside the new generation is just stupid. I can only hope that somehow they get allowed to eventually port it over to the other consoles.
    Well there was also a wii version and a smaller DS version of MU2 so its not like they would all come from PS3 and Xbox.
