Marvel’s Avengers fans are aware of the two next heroes that will be joining the growing games-as-a-service title, and many are excited to see them make their debut. Black Panther’s War for Wakanda expansion has the chance to present a new vision for the game and revive player interest, while many PlayStation fans have been waiting for Spider-Man to make his debut since the game first launched. Beyond Black Panther and Spider-Man, though, no other characters have been announced — though several have leaked.
While the original leaks for Marvel’s Avengers listed over a dozen post-launch heroes for the game, more recent leaks have narrowed that number down greatly. In the game’s code, dataminers have found several references to four specific unannounced heroes. Based on the number of references seen, the leakers have also provided an outline for when these heroes could be coming, giving Marvel’s Avengers fans a good idea of what to expect from future DLC updates. While characters from the older leak may still arrive, gamers should only expect those with files currently in the game to be added in the future.
According to reliable Marvel’s Avengers leaker Miller, the supposed DLC order will likely see She-Hulk being added to the game next. This would make sense for a few reasons. Not only is Jennifer Walters popular with comic book readers, but her upcoming MCU series on Disney+ will only serve to make her more popular. As a result, gamers may be looking for a way to play as the gamma-based hero once they finish watching the show, and Crystal Dynamics can fill this void by adding her to the game. With her origin story tied deeply to her cousin Bruce Banner, some strong cutscenes can be shared with Troy Baker’s well-acted version of the character.
As for Jennifer’s moveset, fans should not need to worry too much about her feeling too similar to The Hulk. After all, the DLCs for Clint Barton and Kate Bishop have proven that two heroes with the same movesets can have some vastly different gameplay, with the two Hawkeyes boasting different moves and arrows. Further, while She-Hulk does have the strength of her angrier relative, she is also incredibly fast. Classified as a speedster by Marvel, Crystal Dynamics can play off her quick attacks to help her feel different. As for the villain of the She-Hulk DLC, iconic adversaries like Titania and Absorbing Man could prove fun to fight against in-game — with the couple even having the chance to serve as the game’s first double boss fight.
Miller’s leak also stated that none other than The Winter Soldier would be coming to Marvel’s Avengers after She-Hulk, with the possibility for him to debut before She-Hulk also mentioned. With recent leaks allowing fans to hear voice lines of the entire cast of heroes referring to The Winter Soldier, it seems like work is already being done to add him to the game. With Falcon and The Winter Soldier proving to be a major success for the MCU, getting Bucky Barnes into the game sooner rather than later would definitely be a wise idea. With the MCU version of the character immensely popular with fans, though, it seems likely that players will be happy to control Cap’s sidekick whenever he shows up.
