The playable characters include Steve Rogers / Captain America (Jeff Schine), Tony Stark / Iron Man (Nolan North), Bruce Banner / Hulk (Troy Baker), Thor (Travis Willingham), Natasha Romanova / Black Widow (Laura Bailey), and Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel (Sandra Saad).

Synopsis

Marvels Avengers Trailer Characters

Marvels Avengers Trailer features a large roster of characters drawn from the Marvel Universe, consisting primarily of the title team members and other superheroes. The playable characters include Steve Rogers / Captain America (Jeff Schine), Tony Stark / Iron Man (Nolan North), Bruce Banner / Hulk (Troy Baker / Darin De Paul), Thor (Travis Willingham), Natasha Romanova / Black Widow (Laura Bailey), and Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel (Sandra Saad).

Plot

The story begins on A-Day, where 5 of the founding members of the Avengers – Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow and Bruce Banner – are celebrating the unveiling of a second headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by a Terrigen crystal. The ceremony soon goes awry when a terrorist attack led by Taskmaster results in the Golden Gate Bridge and most of the city being destroyed, as well as the apparent death of Captain America.

Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, the rebuilt city is now under the control of a science-based organization called A.I.M. and superheroes – including those who were members of the Avengers – are outlawed. But with the world in peril once more, a young Pakistani-American teenager named Kamala Khan uncovers both superpowers of her own and a shocking conspiracy regarding A.I.M., and so she embarks on a quest to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, avenge Captain America’s death, and uncover the true culprit behind the A-Day incident.

Marvels Avengers Trailer Release

The game was originally set to release on Stadia, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows on May 15, 2020, but it has since been pushed back to September 4, 2020.

A teaser trailer was released on Marvel Entertainment’s YouTube channel in January 2017 which announced the game. The game was under the working title The Avengers Project. More than two years later at E3 2019, Square Enix hosted a press conference that shared more details on the game, including a full trailer and release date. The 14-minute presentation showcased a trailer made from in-game footage, a brief description of the gameplay including characters, multiplayer and customization, and a preview of the actors behind the game. A playable demo was available to show floor attendees behind closed doors.

Tie-in media and merchandise

Titan Books published two tie-in books for the game. The first book, titled Marvel’s Avengers: The Extinction Key, was released on March 31, 2020. The Extinction Key, which was written by best-selling author Greg Keyes, is a prequel focused on the events that take place prior to the A-Day, which also sets the game’s events in motion. The novel follows the Avengers as they try to prevent an ancient organization called the Zodiac from acquiring an infinitely powerful weapon capable of warp the very fabric of time and space — the Zodiac Key.

The Extinction Key also introduces the game’s versions of Doctor Strange and Brother Voodoo, as well as specific members of S.H.I.E.L.D.. The second book, Marvel’s Avengers: The Art of the Game, will be released on September 1, 2020, and, packed with concept art, storyboards and artist commentary, will present intimate studies of the Avengers, plus a detailed view at the different environments and missions in the game.
