Spider-Man Announced For 'Disney Infinity 2.0' This Fall (Video)
The next Marvel hero to join Disney: Infinity was unveiled Tuesday, and it’s a familiar face (Well, mask) to anyone who’s been following Marvel in comic books, movies or animated series over the past few decades, with good reason. After all, listen, bud. He’s got radioactive blood.
The Marvel’s Spider-Man Play Set is modeled on Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man series, and features not just the eponymous wall-crawling hero, but also Nova, Iron Fist, Nick Fury and Venom. (Sorry, Power Man fans; apparently, this isn’t his time right now. Perhaps if there’s ever a Heroes For Hire Play Set?)
As the announcement video below reveals, those playable characters won’t be the only recognizable characters in the Spider-Man set: not only is the Green Goblin the villain behind the nefarious scheme to infect the city with Venoms, but Doctor Octopus shows up to warn that doing so might not be the best idea.
The Play Set, containing Spider-Man and Nova, will be available in stores this fall. Fury, Venom and Iron Fist will be available separately, and once the set is completed, additional locations and vehicles (including the Daily Bugle building and Nick Fury’s hover car) will be unlocked within the game.
