Presumably, it will be similar to games created by other studios, like Star Wars and Ghostbusters.
“We’re always looking for new stories and corners of the universe for our characters to explore. Now, after more than a decade of amazing support, we are excited to give fans the same opportunity: to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios. “Expanding how people can experience the MCU is something we’re always trying to do, and in Avengers: Damage Control, we wanted to give fans the chance to suit up alongside some their favorite heroes for the first time ever.”
Reportedly, this video game will include appearances from Avengers heroes like Shuri, Doctor Strange, Wasp, and Ant-Man, and other characters. It is unclear, however, if the actors from Avengers: Endgame will reprise their superhero roles.
