Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Thanos, Venom and Red Skull are the first Marvel characters to debut in the Disney Emoji style.

Disney has yet to introduce Marvel emoji into the game, launched July 2016.

The Match-3 game sees users playing fast-paced timed rounds to complete missions and earn prizes, collecting various Disney, Pixar, and Lucasfilm emoji and their different specialized abilities.

More than 100 emoji are available in-game, featuring characters from Disney's most popular franchises: Mickey Mouse and friends, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., The Lion King, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Big Hero 6 and more.

The game frequently introduces special limited-time events tying in with Disney's big screen releases: 2017 saw events promoting Disney blockbusters Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Cars 3, Coco and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, bringing characters Jack Sparrow, Lightning McQueen, Miguel Rivera, Rey, Finn, BB-8 and Kylo Ren into the game.

Disney's line of Marvel Emoji merchandise suggests the characters will soon join the game, likely to help promote Disney-owned Marvel Studios' upcoming superhero blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, uniting the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy for the first time against universe-threatening villain Thanos.
