Known comic writer Brian Michael Bendis will create the story for Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes
. Bendis promises stories and characters coming in the future, beyond the fall release that "will blow your mind."
The Marvel Super Heroes refresh features six characters: Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Iron Man and Hawkeye. A starter pack will be released featuring three characters, at the event Disney showcased a bundle featuring Iron Man, Thor and Black Widow. Disney's John Vignocchi promised "a dozen more." An extended trailer for the game, a short version of which was teased
earlier this month, revealed future characters, including Spider-Man, MODOK, Loki, Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Power discs will allow players to call in allies, such as Iron Patriot, and change character costumes.
To compensate for new character abilities, the worlds within Disney Infinity 2.0 have been expanded. Vignocchi explains that the world needed to grow for characters with the ability to fly. Disney Infinity 2.0 increases character levels to 20 and features a new skill tree for character customization. The game's popular Toy Box mode, which Vignocchi says makes up for 60% of time spent with the game, will also expand with the ability to create interiors, feature builders players can drop into the world to automatically add elements to their Toy Boxes and more.
