Disney Infinity '2.0 Edition' to introduce Marvel characters

A teaser trailer for Disney Infinity "2.0 Edition" teases the inclusion of Marvel characters by prominently featuring Captain America's shield and using a tagline reminiscent of The Avengers.

Disney has given the clearest indication yet that Disney Infinity will be introducing characters from the stable of Marvel superheroes. A new teaser-trailer for the game, notably posted from Marvel's YouTube account, shows the trademark shield of Captain America bouncing around the cartoon world of Infinity.

With the tagline "Get Ready to Assemble" blatantly lifted from The Avengers, it really couldn't be any more clear-cut. The title reveal at the end calls it the "2.0 Edition" of Disney Infinity, though the trailer isn't entirely clear on whether that means a new retail release. This lines up with a report from February, which also stated that the recently acquired Star Wars franchise would be making its way into Disney Infinity too.

      I assume this will be able to use the existing base, but will need a new game purchase. Which is just a money grab because they could the same with DLC unless they're needing to fully rev the engine to do something.

        i guess i'd be okay with that as long as the game is around $40 or they have a nice bundle, but yeah i doubt this couldn't be added to the base game as DLC.

        Given what Disney paid to acquire Marvel, yes... that is precisely the idea.

      Am I the only one that isn't a big Avengers fan? I'd rather see more X-Men.
