Disney Infinity Will Feature Marvel Character
Last year Disney Infinity was a game that filled with a plethora of Disney Characters but it appears the game will soon be getting characters from properties that Disney owns. Disney Infinity is an action-adventure sandbox video game that requires players to buy physical toys that can then be scanned into the game to complete challenges.
In a new trailer for Disney Infinity, it appears that the game will soon be getting characters from properties that Disney owns. This is evident from the tagline “Bring On The Superheroes” and the Captain America’s shield further confirms that other Marvel characters will be coming to the game this year. While no solid details were offered, it does appear that characters from the Marvel cinematic universe will be joining the game, so you can expect The Avengers and (probably) Spider-Man but it’s a bit more murky because Disney owns the character, but the film rights belong to Sony and the game rights to Activision.
The trailer also makes reference to Disney Infinity 2.0. Right now it is unknown if this means Disney is working on a sequel or just an update that includes Marvel characters. My prediction is that the 2.0 status could also refer to Disney Infinity coming out on the PS4 and Xbox One. We won’t know until Disney says more about it though.
As you all know that Star Wars is another Disney Property so it’s safe to assume that they’ll be showing up in Disney Infinity sooner or later as well and with Star Wars Episode VII now in production, Disney will want to hype the movie all they can with video games, toys and more.
Unfortunately, the teaser doesn’t give us a release date for the Marvel characters or the version 2.0 of Disney Infinity. But many predict that we’ll see it sometime during Summer.
