Not 100% once again with leak lists.

But the roster looks pretty impressive so far if true.

But yeah where exactly did that rumor come from?

Eh but no matter, I read everything. Like I said it looks pretty impressive. Still leaning towards X-Men and F4 characters being excluded in the core roster. But we'll see if the plot thickens.

Songbird would be unexpected since she is a Marvel character that hasn't been in film. And Ms. Marvel as well, but she is heavily pushed by Marvel in general.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I sincerely doubt Shuma will be coming back, even if Capcom begs Marvel for him. At this point, Dr. Strange has a lot more characters that got established towards the mainstream (him, Dormammu, Mordo, to a lesser extent Ancient One and Wong). Shuma-Gorath, while being a very interesting character, simply does not have the relevance to Marvel for them to sacrifice a slot that could be used for a character that is currently getting exposure through MCU or comics.
The independent comic issues that Shuma has been in can be counted on two hands, and the last one was ages ago. Furthermore, Capcom's depiction of Shuma in the MvC series is everything but faithful to the character, something that Marvel has become increasingly conscious about. Shuma is an eldritch abomination, not a silly tentacle monster striking poses and becoming a gameshow host.

It's from RikuRikuMore. Apparently Saikyo think his source is legit. I guess we will have to wait for two months to see if the rumor is legit or not.

I don't believe that Songbird would make in but I have been rooting for her to be in the game ever since MVC3 so it would be crazy if she actually make in. I still hope She-Hulk would come back as well.

Honestly, if there's an additional Spider-Man character, and some combination of:

Parker
Cap
IM
Hawkeye
Panther
Strange
Star-Lord
Ant-Man

(or Cage, Taskmaster, DD, X-23, Wasp, Widow, Kamala if they're in)

aren't Hsien Ko level trash, then I'll be pretty happy. They don't need to be S-tier, just viable and more importantly, fun.

I played Taskmaster for like 5 minutes during all of (u)MvC3 but I'm really invested in him coming back. Might be the pirate jig he does at his win pose.

Forgot this game was 2v2 for a second there. Makes things a little easier as to potentially finding a fun team.

The entire roster won't be revealed at E3. But you're getting a good number of announcements, first gameplay of a match (and more), and an explanation of the combat systems.

You've singlehandedly restored my hype. Thank you so much.

Assuming this is legit then I'm very satisfied with this (partial) roster. Black Panther and Commando alone would be enough for me lol.

Just want some concrete gameplay info now. I'm very interested in how the game has changed since it was revealed.

I agree, Songbird definitely has the capabilities to be a really interesting character. She can use her sonic constructs like as if she was Green Lantern, so she has a lot of potential. That said, she seems kinda left field compared to the others.

If the only team interaction is tagging, then team construction is nigh meaningless outside of combo optimization.

Her being left field is why I think she has a chance. Capcom (and Marvel, I think. Correct me if I'm wrong) have stated that they like left field picks. I might be misremembering and this was solely in regards to SF5. But still, I think left field picks are considered necessary, and even expected, by Capcom. I think she placed high-ish on the MvC3 polls too. Besides, Marvel has been pushing her for a while. If Marvel is planning Thunderbolts for MCU phase 4 (which is very much possible, especially since James Gunn has shown an interest in it) then she'd be a shoe-in.

Whether in the base roster or as DLC, I think she's inevitable, same as Ms. Marvel.

The only thing missing from that roster is War Machine and then it would be the true successor to the original MvC. I always found it weird the hype that MvC2 had. When I was younger there was access to both machines but everyone would always play the original MvC. If you weren't playing KoF you were playing MvC.

Let's be honest, out of all of Spidey's classic villains, Mysterio never had a good shot. It's gonna be one of the big 3 (Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Venom), or maybe a current movie villain (in this case Vulture). And even if we disregarded that, Mysterio, as cool as a villain he is... I don't think he would work well in a fighting game, especially if you already are very likely going to have Loki to contest the whole illusion and mirror image thing that Mysterio would have to have.

Only half the roster of SFV are characters that previously appeared in SF4. Marvel has final say about their side, and there's a number of characters that weren't in MvC3 that they'll want represented. If X-Men and F4 characters are DLC then 1/4th of the vanilla MvC3 roster is already out.

Talk about a boring list. The best thing on there is venom. I hope capcom and marvel have something better than this. Especially considering at best there's only 8 characters left.

I think the idea that it might be a smaller roster than MVC3 but have a lot of new characters that weren't in that holds some merit. They did it with SFV and with the recent rerelease of MVC3 on all systems I could see them doing it again.

Yeah capcom has Morrigan and that's it. At this point of this was an actual list. The last few characters would need to be females on both sides so its not sausage party Infinite

As mentioned before, She-Hulk is probably a lower priority for Marvel since she doesn't seem to have an MCU project (film or TV) in the pipeline. Though of course, she's a veteran from the MvC3 games, so I can't imagine her being hard to bring over.

Also, I see that you made F.A.N.G your avatar, again.

As I've said before, it would be nice if Capcom/Marvel decide to add 2- 4 reps from X-Men/FF as a surprise in the base roster (given all the talk about the ban in the games)

At least this cand be of use until we get something new hahah

If the roster is indeed 32, I'd imagine that the last 4 characters on the Marvel side would be Thor, Hulk, Star-Lord, & Ultron. On the Capcom side, I would guess Asura, Chun-Li, Rashid, & Sigma.

It's gonna need more diversity. If that's let's just say the final roster. There's a whole 4 female caharcters. That's even less than the standard 3 for 1 rule
