Every playable character in Marvel’s Avengers
If we’ve learned anything from Marvel’s comic books and cinematic universe, it’s that the world is always expanding. New villains are always appearing, and new heroes are always swooping in to stop them. Crystal Dynamics is taking this same approach with a game starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Marvel’s Avengers launches with six playable characters, but that’s far from all the heroes we’ll be able to control when all is said and done. Crystal Dynamics has said that all playable characters will be added at no additional cost, but additional upgrades for those characters can cost money.
Check out all the characters you can play as in Marvel’s Avengers, as well as all the heroes still to come.

After much teasing, Crystal Dynamics finally brought Spider-Man to the PlayStation version of Marvel’s Avengers.

Before her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thor: Love and Thunder, Crystal Dynamics announced that Jane Foster: Mighty Thor will be joining the team. We don’t have many details on Jane’s inclusion, but Crystal Dynamics says her moveset will have a lot in common with Thor, although she will have elements that set her apart.
