SDCC 2017 has been concluded, but the reveals that LEGO shared with fans and attendees still lingers on. I intend to do a recap any time soon about all the things related to LEGO during this year’s San Diego Comic Con, to somehow round-up all these things, and to make sense out of the information overload.
But before that, here’s another tidbit of info that Warner Bros. Interactive and TT Games have shared during Comic-Con. We already had a look at some of the new Marvel superheroes that will be added to the game’s roster of more than 200+ playable characters. This time, we now have our second official trailer of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 video game that puts the spotlight on the game’s main antagonist, Kang the Conqueror. We also get a closer look at the different Marvel worlds as Kang brings them all together in an epic collision of inter-dimensional proportions in the surreal world of Chronopolis.
If the first trailer of LMSH2 introduces us to some of the characters that will grace the long-awaited sequel, this follow-up shows us more about Kang and the time-warping, open-hub world of Chronopolis. In this uber extreme mashup of Marvel worlds, we get to see familiar places such as Ancient Egypt, New York City 2099, Wakanda, Xandar, Knowhere, and many other comic book locations.
Here’s the official press release of the latest LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer released as a fitting conclusion for this year’s SDCC.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Spotlights Kang the Conqueror in NEW SDCC Trailer
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released a NEW trailer for LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2 featuring Kang the Conqueror, a time-travelling Super Villain who has stolen numerous cities from across time and space to form the expansive Open Hub World of Chronopolis. First revealed at Comic-Con International: San Diego, the video spotlights Kang in his ultimate quest to take over the universe, as well as the many Marvel locations that make up Chronopolis, including Ancient Egypt, New York City in 2099, Wakanda, Xandar and many other Marvel settings.
At Comic-Con, TT Games also revealed a brand new character created in tandem with Marvel Games, fusing together the ever popular Carnage and Venom to form a new Marvel Super Villain called Carnom, a character who has never existed in the Marvel Universe before and is completely unique to LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. Along with Carnom, TT Games announced a slew of other characters coming to the game, including Howard the Duck and his Iron Duck variant, who will be voiced by Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller, Gwenpool, the fan-favorite amalgam of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool, Vulture, from the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” film, Cosmo the Spacedog,Doctor Octopus, Forbush Man, Greenskyn Smashtroll and Throg. These Super Heroes and Super Villains will join the recently revealed Medusa and Lockjaw of the Inhumans, all playable in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.
