With the first official look at Marvel’s Avengers released during Square Enix’s E3 2019 presentation this week, fans are left unsure how to feel about the trailer we got. However, one thing fans are wondering about is whether or not Marvel’s Avengers will link to Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4.
While no definitive answer has been stated either way, fans have been given hope by the creative director of Marvel Games Bill Rosemann.
At a recent panel for the Electronic Entertainment Expo currently going on in Los Angeles, the creative director has hinted at a possible crossover by pleading the fifth with a “no comment” style answer stating that if he were to comment on the possible link between the two games, the roof would fall in on his head.
While not a serious or life-endangering comment, it could be interpreted that Rosemann simply feels he cannot comment on the possible connection in fear of potentially being in trouble with his superiors. Leading to a presumption that there may still be hope for a connection.
The trailer also lends hope to a potential crossover as the footage revealed seems to base the designs of the characters on their Marvel Cinematic Universe stylings. Also, only five out of the six core Avengers are shown in the trailer, with Hawkeye nowhere to be seen.
But while it has been confirmed that neither Marvel’s Avengers nor Marvel’s Spider-Man are in any way linked to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that doesn’t mean that the two games cannot be linked to form the origins of the Marvel Games Universe.
The teaser advertising Marvel’s Avengers revealed the five heroes unveiling a new technology at Avengers Tower before a catastrophic event results in massive destruction. The team is blamed for it and disband allowing the world to be thrown into chaos.
Comic-Book supervillain and sometimes antihero Taskmaster has been revealed as the villain of Marvel’s Avengers, despite some fan confusion of the character resembling the Red Skull’s appearance as Guardian of the Soul Stone in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Marvel’s Avengers is set to debut on May 15, 2020, so any confirmation to this potential connection may not be revealed until closer to the release date as a way of trying to boost pre-orders or opening sales.
The game has been confirmed to be released on Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
