Marvel United Teases X-Men Expansion
CMON and Spin Master's Marvel United made players feel like a team of Avengers taking on iconic Marvel villains like Red Skull, Ultron, and Taskmaster. The heroes included Captain America, Black Widow, Captain Marvel, and more, but with their latest teaser trailer, it seems Marvel United is prepping another big-time group of heroes to join the fight, and it would be none other than the X-Men. Tha5t's right, a new expansion will bring Marvel's mutants to the fray, and you can check out our first look at the new heroes in the full trailer above. We don't have an official roster yet,but as you can see in the image below, we do have an idea of who will be in the upcoming set, or at least some theories.
The black silhouettes give some pretty solid clues, though several are still a mystery. The most obvious ones are Angel (top left), Storm (top right), and Wolverine (center). From there it gets a bit more tricky, as the third from left silhouette looks like someone with a gun, perhaps Bishop. We then see another flying character in the top center, and the sword in her hand could indicate it's Magik.
As for the rest, the far right seems to be a bulkier character, so maybe Juggernaut or Colossus, and the character on the right side of Wolverine seems to have fur, so maybe Beast or Sabretooth.
Other expected characters would be Gambit, Rogue, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, and Kate Pryde, but we'll just have to wait and see who makes the cut.
