Awesome! So now, we're half & half with old & new playable characters.

Returning Characters from Marvel Vs. Capcom 2:

Iron Man
Wolverine (Silver Clawed)
Hulk
Captain America
Doctor Doom
Ryu
Chun-Li
Morrigan Aensland
Felicia

New characters introducted to MvC:

Chris Redfield
Amaterasu
Viewtiful Joe (he may have appeared in TvC, but he's new to MvC.)
Dormammu
Super-Skrull
Thor
Deadpool
Dante
Trish

Hopefully, they'll fix Viewtiful Joe up (from what I've been hearing, he plays awful in TvC).

Frank West and Spiderman will be next I'm guessing.

Why ridiculous characters like Wiewful Joe or Frank West, Hayato Kanzaki, Zero, megaman, Strider Hiryu are most charismatic

fabulos said on August 18, 2010 at 2:08 a.m.

man, Dormammu is super tall! he looks badass too. I like where this game is going! now confirm Spider-Man already!

Phatty said on August 18, 2010 at 2:09 a.m.

PLEASE GIVE ME CLASSIC MEGAMAN! I want to have a midget fight with him and Viewtiful Joe

#9
jhayze said on August 18, 2010 at 2:10 a.m.

man and i thought Dormammu would be the final boss or something...bring out Galactus as the final boss would be so damn epic!

#10
Loocid said on August 18, 2010 at 2:28 a.m.

Dormammu looks like he will = blackheart in terms of play style. Look at those attacks and his size.

#11
Wolverju said on August 18, 2010 at 2:38 a.m.

Is it Thor on the last picture?

#12
Cortez said on August 18, 2010 at 2:41 a.m.

@Loocid: He looks nothing like Blackheart and his moves are different.

@8

Because most of them had great games behind them....

#15
GomuJonny said on August 18, 2010 at 2:49 a.m.

I wonder if Spider-Man is such a late announcement because Marvel have told them to make him top tier. I'm hoping for a buff and extended move set.

Awesome! Now we know why Ghost Rider did not make it, 2 flaming skull characters would be overkill

@#17 yeah i am surprised that Spiderman isn't announced yet, it's like Capcom not announcing Ryu

#18
Aftermath1349 said on August 18, 2010 at 3:24 a.m.

Yawn.

Why do they feel the need to keep introducing characters we've known about since the very first art for the game came out? Obviously those are the characters that are closest to finished but they shouldn't have had so many easily identifiable "shadows" in that art because the hype for this game is just not there at the moment. C'mon Capcom, if you want us to stay hype for a game that's not coming out for atleast 6-7 months then give us *new* info!

Oh and please don't let viewtiful Joe be a baby character like in TvC. Joe and Amaretasu worry me a bit. This game is not one that needs characters that can't be hit by certian attacks just because they have a retarded hitbox. Here's hoping for the best

#19
halo said on August 18, 2010 at 3:24 a.m.

Oh and btw i really hope to see some of the new SF IV characters in this game. Most people hate Rufus, El Fuerte and even Hakan so i don't expect to see them in, but fan-favorite Abel and Juri would be awesome in MvC3!

#20
Shredelicious said on August 18, 2010 at 3:37 a.m.

Dormammu being playable is a bit sketch to me. He's supposed to be a god-like entity. I feel like if anyone is over powered in the game it'll be him.

kinda rather he be a boss character.

#21
LearningFast said on August 18, 2010 at 3:47 a.m.

Doom,Super Skrull, and Dormammu

3 great villains and will be one of the top teams in the game hands down. It's about time Dormammu got his time in the sun.

#22
Sairus said on August 18, 2010 at 3:58 a.m.

@22 "Dormammu being playable is a bit sketch to me. He's supposed to be a god-like entity. I feel like if anyone is over powered in the game it'll be him."

As opposed to Thor and Amaterasu who are actually gods?

Galactus will be the final boss.

xShonuffx said on August 18, 2010 at 4:14 a.m.

#22 Thor, Amaterasu (Issun: Lets just call you Ammy), and Dormammu (Dormmy?) are extreamly powerful beings Gods, demi Gods what will you but they are not invincibal at least not to a certain extent.

Besides it's just a game, every character will have their limits and beside the story may have some legitimate reason for why some gdlk heroes/villians are on par with characters like Ryu and Chun Li. Also I heard although Dormmy is powerful, his powers is limited depending on what dimension he crosses and right now both the Marvel and Capcom universe is collided togeather so....

On a final note im glad characters like Dante, Ammy, and Trish are making their way on the capcom side. MvC2 was so full of street fighters and throw aways that hardly compared in power to the Marvel heroes and villians. I think I can only take one more street Fighter cahracter and the rest have to be some pretty sick heroes/villians.

#29
mag44 said on August 18, 2010 at 4:27 a.m.

DAMMIT, I KNEW they were going to just going to announce characters that were already blatantly obviously in (hell, Dormammu's in the f*ucking trailer for god sakes!). I have a feeling these will be the only character announcements we're going to get :( .....

#30
Sturmgeist13 said on August 18, 2010 at 4:31 a.m.

@ #29 PsychoJosh
What the hell are you talking about?? Viewtiful Joe's hyper combos were perfect in TvC. He had the Silvia Cannon, he DID have mach speed & his level 3 Hyper was Slow & Zoom in.

#31
Bushinryu19 said on August 18, 2010 at 4:51 a.m.

they have to put samanosuke Akechi in this he would be perfect for this game the amount of swords his got and the different amount of combos his got for each sword would make him suit well in MvC

#32
Cortez said on August 18, 2010 at 5 a.m.

@Shonuff

Actually, Dormammu is pretty much imortal. He is invincible in the Dark Dimension(Though he's still powewful in other dimensions).

Though i agree with you that gameplaywise it doesn't really matter.

#33
Bison said on August 18, 2010 at 5:21 a.m.

Viewtiful Joe was a bit underwhelming to me, but it's tight and a surprise that Dormammu is revealed as a playable character. I look forward to playing him if his speed isn't too slow. I kind of get this feeling that he moves real slow and it takes a moment for his moves to come out.

I think at this point it is obvious that Galactus will be the final boss in this game since we almost have all of the Fantastic Four villains and Silver Surfer will soon be announced. We might get Dr. Strange, but I am not too interested in him. I would prefer to see a Cable alternative like Bishop.

#34
xShonuffx said on August 18, 2010 at 5:41 a.m.

@34 yeah I was reading about that. Still it should be intersting how thsis turns out im just glad he's playable, should be safe to assume Galactus is the final boss probably. I don't know the character well but Dormammu looks like a blast to play but he is kind of tall, I hope he won't be subseptable to easy infinant loops like other big charcters (Sentinal, blackheart).

Man this game is gonna rock.

#35
Akaso said on August 18, 2010 at 6:01 a.m.

God, I really hope Capcom got Dee Bradley Baker back to do Joe's voice.

I mean, it's good enough that he's even in to begin with, but that would be the icing on the cake.

#36
JIHADJOE said on August 18, 2010 at 6:01 a.m.

Eternity as a secret boss!

Ono needs to show people (and whoever did Power Rangers on the SNES) what 'broken' is all about.

#37
Nyoronoru said on August 18, 2010 at 6:04 a.m.

Time to get Viewtiful!

They gave Joe his Zoom-In special attacks. I can't wait for a gameplay video!

#38
Hrm said on August 18, 2010 at 6:07 a.m.

Dormammu is freaking huge!

so, no gameplay trailers yet?

You know, outside of SF, Capcom has some really silly characters.

Please Make Joe A Decent Character

#43
ButterKnife said on August 18, 2010 at 8:12 a.m.

Dormammu is definitely this game's Shuma Gorath (Although he's more popular than that). Why won't they just put in Dr. Strange? Is he not colorful enough!?!

#44
Shaunbake said on August 18, 2010 at 8:14 a.m.

Dormammu will play like Blackheart I can almost promise that. I need Zero but his height is like viewtiful joe.

#45
Adnan said on August 18, 2010 at 8:16 a.m.

Dormammu is TALL :o
Also, lol at Thor's invisible chair in the 6th screenshot

#46
cadnexus said on August 18, 2010 at 8:26 a.m.

Where's Silver Surfer was that a fake announcement? No, I think Capcom will reveal at least 2 more. There's 2 more Silhouettes- Spiderman and Frank West. Still no Capcom villains and no Marvel girls. I guess they're saving that last important stuff for later. I'm now more convinced that the leak list is false and that Dormammu is not the final boss.

#47
cadnexus said on August 18, 2010 at 8:32 a.m.

The only villains Marvel need now is a sentinel size- Apocalypse and Magneto then the villains would be complete for the Marvel side.

#48
SirHonor said on August 18, 2010 at 8:44 a.m.

@#22: Thanos was a very God-like being and look where he ended up in MvC2.

Definitely psyched for Viewtiful Joe!! I'm hoping he does get a buffed Hyper Combo selection. Six Cannon was terrible in TvC. Also happy to see that he got himself a Vortex-inspired Shoryuken, WHOOOOOHOOOO!!!

#49

HxCAssassyn said on August 18, 2010 at 8:58 a.m.

God, boring. Let's see some old school lovin. How about PROTOMAN! Never made it into a versus game, and with a mix of his shield and buster he can be a sweet char.

Annon said on August 18, 2010 at 9:10 a.m.

So instead of high profile fighters from MegaMan, SF, or DS universe, we get trash like Viewtiful Joe who still haven't had a single game sell close to 1 million units.

Let's see on what economical factors Capcom will blame their record profit losses next, instead of their stupid game directors.

Strider.

#64
ChunLi said on August 18, 2010 at 9:46 a.m.

I thought Dormammu would have been the Final Boss... it would have made sense. He has the power to merge dimensions at full strength, and Dr.Strange considers him to be his worse enemy because of that. With him having the power to merge dimensions, and this game called "Fate of Two Worlds", I really thought he was just the Final Boss...

Concerning Viewtiful Joe, awesome. Although it looks like his TvC moves are returning full force, he just might have the tweaking needed for him to be used for the MvC formula.

Good work, Capcom, keep it up.

#65
cadnexus said on August 18, 2010 at 9:48 a.m.

If Viewtiful Joe took Captain Commando's spot that's going to Suck chitterlings.

#66
Travizion said on August 18, 2010 at 9:49 a.m.

Dormammu is a cheap character

#67
ChunLi said on August 18, 2010 at 9:53 a.m.

P.S. NOT HAPPY ABOUT THAT FLAME PILLAR ON IMAGE #7!

If it's anything like now Goenitz's stupid Tornado anti-air (anti-EVERYTHING, rather) works, I'm calling it, he's going to be borderline broken.

#68
Gurou_Kun said on August 18, 2010 at 9:59 a.m.

I'd love to see Thanos on this one (without a doubt, my favorite Marvel character), but with a reworked moveset (no infinity gauntlet supers).

I'm kinda disappointed with Capcom's side, sure I understand the need to include their new franchises, but VJ, again... what about Capcom's 90's franchises?, Power Stone, Warzard, Justice Gakuen, Star Gladiator...

#69
Jbui said on August 18, 2010 at 10:03 a.m.

now im guessing silver surfer, spider man, and frank west are going to be confirmed.

#70
Cortez said on August 18, 2010 at 1:35 p.m.

@Travizion:

You haven't played him yet, how do you know if he's broken?

@Gurou_Kun:

There's no way Joe would miss teaming up with Super Heroes, he'll probably fanboy over them like he did with the Tatsunoko heroes.

Btw, Capcom already said there won't be any Power stone characters.

#71
Ex_Ein said on August 18, 2010 at 2:40 p.m.

could it be? there will be no spiderman?

#72
THawk said on August 18, 2010 at 2:44 p.m.

On a more important note... Cyrax and Kitana were announced.

#73
tokyobassist said on August 18, 2010 at 2:44 p.m.

Interesting but now the rumor list got me worried about Mega Man X and Strider being included.

#74
Ex_Ein said on August 18, 2010 at 2:53 p.m.

Yes it's possible spider-man won't be there, because Spider-man ISN'T the poster boy of marvel, he's been the most known of the last 10 years but the poster boy for marvel changes between the big 4 of Cap, Spider-man, Hulk and Thor

#75
Sektah84 said on August 18, 2010 at 2:56 p.m.

^ you forgot wolvierene. Hes been the face of marvel for a while hes the most popular xmen. Im hoping to see actual gameplay footage of dormammu and joe soon. Can we get some tekkenxsf news too?!

#76
toshi said on August 18, 2010 at 2:58 p.m.

i think that one guy was right. i forget who, but theyre probably delaying spidermans announcement cuz its gonna be some special spiderman from that shattered dimensions game

#77
Ex_Ein said on August 18, 2010 at 2:59 p.m.

and the reason why Ironman isn't included in the big 4 normally is because he's a egotistical and an ex-alcoholic.
Reason why Wolverine's not in the big 4(though he's basically in everything) is he kills people straight up, but they're trying to make those nice with stuff like Wolverine and the X-men and Ironman armed adventures

#78
Ex_Ein said on August 18, 2010 at 3:04 p.m.

Toshi: That'd be me who said that

Sektah84, he's the most popular because he's the most exposed however not the poster boy.

#79
Ex_Ein said on August 18, 2010 at 3:05 p.m.

if you read alot of wolverine storylines you'll be like "This is cool but not great

#80
Sektah84 said on August 18, 2010 at 3:13 p.m.

your right spiderman appeals to everyone where someone like wolvie goes for a more hardcore audience imo either way spidey is going to be in it im sure that like its been said capcom dont wanna cockblock since shattered demensions is dropping in a couple of weeks. the new spidey flicks starts filming soon so maybe when they show a teaser trailer for that theyll revial spidey

#81
Cortez said on August 18, 2010 at 3:38 p.m.

@Ex_Ein :

Actually, both Wolverine and Iron Man are part of Marvel's poster boys. Especially Iron Man after the movies(He'll even bee the leader of the Avengers in the news Avengers cartoon). Chech your facts man.

Can't believe Joe literally looks the same as his TVC counterpart (with more shading from the new graphics)-better bring back Roll.

Come on Phoenix, I can feel it...if they're reusing resources from TVC you can be picked up where you (or Fransika) left off from.

#89
cadnexus said on August 18, 2010 at 4:52 p.m.

Spider Man's got to be in, but I bet it would just be the regular one. It's like not putting Mega Man in, and he's got to be in to I would think they put Mega Man X in.

Ugh... Look at that last pic of Joe vs Dorm. How much do you want to bet that half of Dormammus attacks won't even connect with Joe? Seriously Capcom, how many people have to tell you that baby characters are garbage before you take them out?

#92
Batsu said on August 18, 2010 at 5:57 p.m.

Pyron should be the Final boss.

jaskoftrades said on August 18, 2010 at 6:26 p.m.

#96 omegax9000 funny since she's one of the few characters they have come out and said won't be in the game, also interesting fact that the movie will be set in the way past before even Cyclops, Jean or Storm come along.

Cortez that's not far fetched seeing as hmmm HE WAS THE LEADER OF THE AVENGERS originally in comics((mind you Cap was not on the team until a little after), but that doesn't make him a poster boy. he has his fans but if you ask a real marvel fan not just one who goes sees the movies but knows which comic book Wolverine appeared in(Incredible Hulk 181), they'll tell you the top 4 marvel heroes that they consider the poster boys are Cap, thor, hulk and spidey, but the current runs of Wolverine and Ironman are good

#96
zero2269 said on August 18, 2010 at 7:59 p.m.

WERE THE F*BEEP* IS ZERO!!!!!!!!!!! >:[

#97
Ex_Ein said on August 18, 2010 at 8:02 p.m.

Reason why the top 4 are the top 4 is because they are characters who can't appeal to anyone who don't come off as too crude(Stark has slept with almost every woman in the Marvel universe and isn't afraid to say it) or too brutal (Wolverine out right killing and maiming people) and you can write them 20 different ways while if you even tried to make Wolverine a considerably nice guy, fans would cry foul ,since his main quote IS "I'm the best at what I do and what I do isn't very nice"

Alot of fans are pissed of at Armored adventures since it takes almost everything that made Tony Stark, Tony Stark(the women the booze and the fact he was wounded by one of his own weapons which made him don the armor and gave him his chest piece) and basically makes him a mix of Spidey's original story(Teen going to school who's super smart and loses his father figure and is best friends with the child of a super powerful CEO who's mental stability is questionable) and hamlet(His father was killed by his uncle figure who took over the business of stark tech). While it works it's not what you see when you go to the comics or movies or other cartoons with him.

#98
ArykheartX said on August 18, 2010 at 8:45 p.m.

Is no one going to bring up the fact that Dorm isnt shown jumping and seems to only have projectile attacks or pillar attacks...... No ok then ill mention it.

Any one notice he Isnt shown jumping when a the other character reveal pictures show the characters jumping in atleast one pic and also he is not shown using his hyper or using his hands or feet to attack.... only moves like the rape pillar or rape spikes.... hmmmm maybe he is still a boss but a cheap B@#$H

Ex_Ein said on August 18, 2010 at 8:45 p.m.
