Marvel Teases Avengers Additions to 'Disney Infinity' (Video)
Marvel Entertainment has released a new video that confirms earlier reports that the company’s superhero characters will join Disney and Pixar’s animated heroes in the Disney Infinity video game universe.
Back in February, the Wall Street Journal reported that both characters from both Marvel and Lucasfilm would be added to new editions of the video game, which launched in 2013 allowing players to mix and match characters from such Disney properties as The Lone Ranger, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Incredibles and Monsters University.
At the time, Disney declined to comment on the matter, but as the new video — titled “Get Ready to Assemble” — demonstrates, Marvel’s super heroes are clearly on their way to Infinity (Note the “2.0 Edition” tag — apparently, a major upgrade is on its way). Watch the video below and prepare for more information to be released.
