Superheros are all the rage right now! Duh!  With "Winter Soldier" being #1 at the box office for weeks, and Spidey to hit this weekend (and a sure bet #1), we just can't seem to get enough.  No doubt timing was everything on the big announcement today, confirming the rumor: Marvel IS taking over Disney Infinity 2!With a 5yr old son, Infinity quickly took over our house this past holiday.  Every trip to the store includes a stop in the gaming or toy section to see what characters they have in stock, only to end in frustration when he can't buy up all the ones he still needs.  (Ahhh, the joys of parenting!)

But since this big news was teased weeks ago, he's been asking everyday when the Marvel Characters are coming.  And we now know: Fall 2014!  (Okay, so we kinda know, as that's not very specific.)

In other words, in you've got a superhero, or Infinity fan, or both, start saving now for Xmas, to get the full Avengers line-up (Captain America, Ironman, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, and Black Widow), and over a dozen more yet to be named, potentially including Spiderman, Green Goblin, Loki, MODOK, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Winter Soldier, and Nick Fury, if what we're seeing in the video above is true.   "Marvel Manhattan" will be the main playset board, and over 80 new power discs will be coming.

 

 

The game will be available for WiiU, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and iOS, and is fully compatible with characters and content from the original Infinity. However, as expected, the new characters/playsets won't work with the original version, so you will have to buy the new game.

And if Marvel's not totally your thing, new Disney content will continue to be added in 2.0, but no other info has really come out yet.  (We're thinking Stitch and Malificient will be included, as you can see them in the video.)  There will also be "Toybox games", and rumored 4 player mode.  We'll keep you posted!
