Now Playing: GS News Update: Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite Character Roster Reportedly Leaked

The character roster for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has reportedly been leaked by way of a post on NeoGAF. According to forum user Ryce, who has a solid track record of leaking Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite details, the list will include a mixture of series mainstays and newcomers from both companies.

As noted by Ryce, the leaked list of Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite characters is currently missing a character from the Capcom side. The other characters are as follows:

Capcom

  • Arthur
  • Chris
  • Chun-Li
  • Dante
  • Firebrand
  • Jedah
  • Monster Hunter
  • Morrigan
  • Nemesis
  • Ryu
  • Spencer
  • Strider Hiryu
  • X

Marvel

  • Ant-Man
  • Captain America
  • Captain Marvel
  • Doctor Strange
  • Gamora
  • Hawkeye
  • Hulk
  • Iron Man
  • Nova
  • Rocket/Groot (It's unclear if it's Rocket Raccoon with Groot assisting or a redesigned character actually called Rocket/Groot)
  • Spider-Man
  • Thanos
  • Thor
  • Ultron

Fans have noted the lack of X-Men characters; speculation suggests this is part of Marvel and Disney's ongoing efforts to shift the focus away from these characters, as the movie rights are currently with Fox. This means that many popular characters from the series, such as Wolverine, Magneto, and Sentinel, aren't included.

Although Marvel is positioning the Inhumans as the replacement for the X-Men, there aren't currently any Inhuman characters on the roster either.

The characters named above certainly seem like they're picked to leverage the popularity of Marvel's Cinematic Universe. GameSpot has contacted Capcom for a statement on the leak.

Capcom has announced a release date of September 19 for the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and revealed a $200 collector's edition. We also got to try an early version of the game; for more, check out what we liked, disliked, and hope to see in the full game here.

Hey! Where's Edward Falcon, Felicia, Jon Talbain, Batsu, Soki, Demitri Maximoff, Black Tiger, Amingo, Amaterasu, Ruby Heart, Ninetails/Rao, Maximo, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Spider-Gwen, War Machine, Black Panther, Carnage, Venom, Squirrel Girl, MODOK, She-Hulk, Daredevil, Iron Fist, Psylocke, Wolverine & Star-Lord? This leaked roster has to be bogus af. It's gotta be.

What a dull lineup. What happened to taking risks with the roster from both sides? MvC2 had some crazy off characters like Son Son, Servbot, Anakaris, Tron Bonne, Blackheart, Juggernaut, Venom, Sentinel, Spiral, Marrow, etc. I get that Marvel just wants to have this roster contained to their future Marvel Studios film releases, but they are doing so at the peril of a narrowing audience. Are they forgetting that X-Men has consistently been their top 3 comic series in the last 30 years (most of which were spent battling Spider-man as their #1 franchise). Same with Capcom with their lack of Rival Schools, PowerStone, or Darkstalkers (aside from Morrigan) representatives. How does Capcom plan to resurrect Darkstalkers or Rival Schools -- as they promised one day they might do -- if their crossover game doesn't even showcase them?

This is supposed to be Marvel vs. Capcom. How come i'm only seeing the MCU characters on this list??? No x-men, no buy.

This leak is way too shitty for it to be legit, as this roster is just Marvel vs Capcom 3.5...

I remember seeing a different "leak" a few months back that had a way better roster with RE6 era Leon, Ada, Batsu from Rival Schools and a Power Stone character, but this roster is complete shit if it's even real.

@Simulator_ShSimulYeah and where is Fin Fang Foom or Devil Dinosaur? Guess I'll stick with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 since it's basically the same thing. Fkn monster hunter really?

@Simulator_Shock: BS. MvC3 had more characters so that makes this like Marvel vs Capcom 2.5. Then again MvC2 had even more characters...

Was considering getting this, until seeing the roster. No X-Men characters means no purchase. Cutting characters that were practically series staples? What are they thinking?

@goku2000: I think it has to do with all the legal red tape bullshit with 20th Century Fox owning the X-Men rights apparently.

@Simulator_Shock: All they own are the film rights. Disney owns all the other rights to the X-Men, so they have no valid reason not to have them in the game.

@caryslan2:Is advertising a valid reason?

Ultron, the latest big MCU villain is the big bad. Thanos as the next big MCU villain is the only other Marvel villain. Loki apparently might be DLC. That tells everything. They want to promote MCU. Venom is also a heavy rumor, I believe that when I see it... or perhaps Marvel Movies had an idea to use him in Spiderman Homecoming 2 and they gave Capcom green light before Sony got possessive again.

Still, at least I was expecting Black Widow, Black Panther, Winter Soldier, Daredevil, Punisher, Red Skull, Mandarin and so on to be in the base roster. Then DLC could have included X-Men or F4 or at least neutral figures like Blade and Ghost Rider. This is just sad if this list is true. I can live without X-Men but looks like they aren't even trying to compensate for that loss.

They should throw some Star Wars characters in this, since Disney owns that too.

Sorry but..all they had to do is a marvel vs capcom 3 maybe with the engine used on the 3rd game, that's all. now this terrible roster and how bad SFV became to be, I will definitely pass this one. Tekken and KOF will be blockbusters, Marvel vs Capcom just set a new word: Lackroster!

LMAO, what a fucking joke. If it were up to me, something like THIS would've been the starting roster for Marvel:

Wolverine

Cyclops

Spider-Man

Hulk

Iron Man

Captain America

Iron Fist

Black Panther

Doctor Strange

Thor

Jessica Jones

The Punisher

Ghost Rider

Starlord

Ultron

Daredevil

And something like THIS would've been the starting roster for the Capcom side:

Arthur

Asura

Captain Commando

Chun-Li

Dante

Jedah

Leon Kennedy

Morrigan

Nina (from Breath of Fire)

Ryu

Sigma

Spencer

Strider Hiryu

Wesker

X

Zero

This kind of list would've sold on a lot of people. The starting list that they came up with, is absolutely atrocious.

@Shinobi120: Thanks for mentioning Captain Commando. If they added him and Cable back, then w/Iron Man I'd have my MvC2 dream team back in action. I'd actually prefer CC over Hiryu....

@Shinobi120: It's not up to you, and it's not up to them. This is a licensing thing that you can blame squarely on Disney and Fox. It sucks, but unfortunately... what's done is done.

@Tanares: Fox owning the movie rights didn't stop X-men or Dr Doom from appearing in the last game or Marvel Heroes or the mobile games.

The only thing stopping them from being included is Disney.

@dominoodle: If Marvel Heroes had only 14 characters and it was a recently finished game, it might very well have only MCU characters.

Thing is if MvCI had 50 Marvel fighters, it would be REALLY tough to go "What Wolverine? Who's that? We are sure you'd like this playable Dum Dum Dugan more"

@Tanares: There is no licensing issue with the X-Men! All Fox has the rights to is to make movies based on the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. All other rights, be it TV shows, cartoons, video games, etc are in Disney's hands.

I'm sorry but no Wolverine means **** this game for me I am so sick of Marvel shafting the X-Men all because there pissed that Fox is doing so well with the X-Men franchise I shit your the ones who sold it so it's your own damn fault but constantly excluding the X-Men from shit is annoying

I was really excited about this but no longer buying this Day 1. Maybe at $29.99 or when ultimate edition comes out.

As someone who has played every MvC game (even xmen vs street fighter) I gotta say that is the worst roster I've seen. I'll buy it when it's dirt cheap, and has a complete roster. Glad Nemesis made the cut though!

I do believe this title could use some punctuation to make the title less ambiguous; after all, the list of character list is not infinite.

I'm not particularly fond of Black Panther and Daredevil missing from that list. There's not really a reason they should be absent either as both have seen very recent popularity spikes. Putting Ultram, Hawkeye and Ant-Man in over those two is incredibly dumb.

And if they wanted a gun guy to replace deadpool, at least drop The Punisher in. I mean come on, really?

I also think the absence of mutants is horseshit. I'm not at ALL impressed that Marvel is allowing licensing to get in the way of mutants being in their lore. This night and day shift between Mutants everywhere to no where is starting to grate.

Capcom's side on the other hand has Strider Hiryu, and they overcame some admittedly smaller licensing issues to make that happen. Their side looks great and has most of my favorites, while Marvel has Nova and Groot.

On the plus side, no Phoenix Wright. On the negative that list is pretty weak. It bums me out that all the extra characters will be DLC and not unlock-able like in MvC2.

That list is so weak. No exciting new characters and missing a lot of series favorites. Where's Doom, Frank West, any X-men...

I'm almost surprised this game is even a vs Capcom and not just a pure MCU fighter.

They took no risks, besides the 4 new characters and the infinity stones this is the same old game

Very disappointed with that list. It is more Hollywood movies characters than anything else. It sounds more like

Hollywood Vs Capcom instead of Marvel Vs Capcom

Also from the Capcom side, why do they keep using the same damn characters over and over? They have so many characters and they keep shoving down you throat the same ones over and over.

Wow, Marvel is basically shoving in every single character they've had in a recent movie and only those.

How pathetic is it that their corporate politics are mandating the roster of a fighting game!?

This is supposed to be Marvel vs Capcom, not Marvel Cinematic Universe vs Capcom.
