Several leaked skins for Marvel's Avengers have been making the rounds online over the past couple of days indicating that they may well be part of some kind of collaboration with the likes of Verizon, Virgin Media, and Intel. It's currently unclear exactly how players will be able to get the skins, but they look legit enough that it does in fact seem real.
Notably, it has been known since late last year that there would be some sort of collaboration with Virgin Media. At the time, it was announced that Virgin Media customers would gain access to some exclusive loot, but the title was of course delayed several times since that point. Given the colors, the red-and-white skins below could be for either Verizon or Virgin Media -- or even both -- and it is speculated that the second set is an Intel collaboration. You can check out the leaked skins below:
Here's the official description for the Marvel's Avengers video game, if you're somehow not familiar:
