More news from the San Diego Comic Con 2017! One of the panels (Marvel Games) that launched earlier today highlights the exciting game sequel, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. With the promise of a bigger roster of playable Marvel superheroes rendered in their LEGO minifigure form, the video game sequel features an entirely different take on the Marvel universe where our favorite superheroes are pressed for time to foil the plans of the nefarious super villain, Kang the Conqueror.
After the reveal of Medusa and Homemade Suit Spider-Man a few days ago at E3 and Disney 23 respectively, we now have confirmation that 3 playable Marvel comic book characters will be available as part of LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2’s ever-growing list of LEGO superhero characters.
We have a powerful fusion between two of the most abominable creatures in the Marvel universe: Carnage and Venom. Known as Carnom, the bigfig character is a mashup of these two unholy creatures and is slated to spring into action together with Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen.
Next, we have the return of our action-packed, comedic feathered friend, Howard the Duck. Other than an exclusive SDCC minifigure dedicated in the character of Deadpool Duck, Howard the Duck will also be a huge character in the digital realm where he is expected to play a big role in the game’s storyline. It was also revealed that he can also transform into Iron Duck – I just don’t know exactly how Tony Stark ended up making a suit for him.
It was also mentioned that Goblin 2099 will also be a playable character in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, so it will be kind of interesting to see how this will play out.
An all-new trailer is expected to be shown on Friday, so we’ll be on a look-out for more LEGO Marvel characters that might be revealed. LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is now available for pre-order, with a Deluxe Edition that comes with a Season Pass, the Classic GOTG Character Pack, and an exclusive Giant-Man minifigure. The game is expected to be released to the general public on November 14.
