The roster for “Lego Marvel’s Avengers” keeps getting bigger, as Warner Bros. and TT games revealed three new female characters. The likes of Kamala Khan and the new female Thor will be joining the cast of “Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” in the second massive Lego game set in the Marvel universe.
Officially announced on Marvel’s website, “Lego Marvel’s Avengers” retells the story of the first “Avengers” movie and its sequel “Age of Ultron,” but with Lego characters and new comedic events to keep the game light. This is slightly different from the game’s predecessor “Lego Marvel Superheroes,” which had an original story that was brimming with characters from the Marvel comic books.
Fans were originally worried that the game’s roster would only include characters from the movies, but those fears were put to rest when America Chavez and Sam Wilson in his Captain America suit were shown in the game back in June. Joining these characters are the “Unbeatable” Squirrel Girl, Speed from the Young Avengers along with the previously mentioned female Thor and Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel.
Legendary Marvel writer Stan Lee will also be a playable character in the game. Taking a cue from Iron Man, Lee comes with a Stan-Buster suit, which is a more comedic version of Tony Stark’s Hulk-Buster armor. Lee was also playable in “Lego Marvel Superheroes,” with the ability to turn into a Hulk, but having the icon’s signature mustache.
While the full roster hasn’t been revealed yet, Forbes reported that the game would have 150 characters in it, some of which haven’t appeared in a Lego game yet. Familiar faces from “Lego Marvel Superheroes” are also set to return, though their names are yet to be revealed.
“Lego Marvel’s Avengers” will be coming to the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PS Vita and PC. The game was originally slated for a release late this year, but has since been moved to next year on Jan. 26. Fans who pre-order the game in the U.K. will get a Lego mini-figure of Iron Man in his Silver Centurion armor.
