Filipino Champ continues to hint heavily at a Marvel vs. Capcom 4

Does Marvel still live?

Official and public Marvel vs. Capcom talk has been essentially non-existent for the past year since Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite was left off of the EVO 2018 main line-up and was also not included in last year's Capcom Pro Tour leading many to believe that the franchise was going dark for the time being.

Former EVO champion Ryan "Filipino Champ" Ramirez has posted multiple times on his Twitter account in recent months which may point to the exact opposite conclusion, however, as he's been thought to have had insider information / early access to the series in the past.

In December of 2018, FChamp tweeted out a list of his main characters or teams in every fighting game he's played including the previous Marvel titles, Street Fighter, Killer Instinct and more which he capped off at the end with "MvC4 - Magneto oooops ;)."

Ramirez more recently posted a Tweet repeating the number four ten times followed by the text "mmmmmmmmm ;)." When told by another user to not play with their hearts like that, Ramirez simply replied with "save my Tweet."

It is currently unclear what FChamp's intentions have been regarding his seemingly Marvel vs. Capcom 4 related posts since we do not know if he is teasing the game's existence, trying to drum up interest in another game, playing a joke on everyone or has a different motive in mind behind said Tweets.

Filipino Champ has previously been linked to a leak from Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite after images of Venom appeared online before his official reveal though the player was never proven or admitted to being the leaker.

EventHubs has reached out to Ramirez for clarification and a statement about what he's been saying on Marvel vs. Capcom in recent months, but he has declined to comment on the matter. We've collected his current Tweets that seem to pertain to Marvel vs. Capcom 4 in the gallery which you can take a look at below.
