Yeah, 50 of ‘em. We don’t really expect Disney to release 50 more Marvel characters for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (which, if you didn’t know, is a toy/game hybrid where collectible figures unlock characters within the videogame). Figures of some of the biggest Marvel characters were released this week alongside the second installment of the game, including both classics that have been beloved for decades (Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk), and the formerly obscure but now hugely popular characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy. Next year Disney Infinity will probably move on to Star Wars and a few more Disney figures (count on Goofy and, I don’t know, George Clooney from Tomorrowland)), with maybe a small second run of Marvel characters. At best we’ll probably get a few tie-ins to the next few movies (I bet Thanos and Ant-Man are a given), an inevitable X-Men pack (even if Fox owns the movie rights) and maybe one or two Jack Skellington-style cult surprises. Still, the potential exists for dozens more tiny little statues from all across the Marvel Universe, both A-level franchise figures like the Fantastic Four, and bit players from obscure Steve Gerber storylines from the 1970s. (If I owned Disney we’d get an entire Steve Gerber line, complete with a toy of Gerber himself.) So here are, yes, 50 Marvel characters that we’d love to see added to the world of Disney Infinity.
This is what Disney Infinity figures look like. Imagine this but with Hercules giving a thumbs up.
