X-Men and Fantastic Four Characters

Dr. Strange and Rocket Raccoon via Eurogamer
Ant-Man and Groot via Polygon and Eurogamer

Either way, it doesn't sound like he's playable, but we'll see. (Don't take this as confirmation of anything, but I thought it was worth mentioning.)


FAQs:

Q: What about X-Men and Fantastic Four characters? Would they be in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite?

A: According to the Game Informer impressions, hope might not be lost for X-Men/FF characters: "[Creative Director of Marvel Entertainment Bill Roseman] wants to make sure fans of all of Marvel properties, including X-Men, were happy. “That heritage is not lost,” he told me."

Q: Do you know if Marvel asked for the X-men to be available only as DLC, or if it's Capcom decision?

A:

Originally Posted by Neoxon

Marvel legally has the rights to give developers access to their entire cast of characters thanks to Activision's hold on certain franchises (the X-Men for example) expiring back in 2014. The only license Activision has left is the Spider-Man movie tie-in license, which expires next year. This isn't a matter of Marvel not being able to use X-Men & Fantastic Four characters, it's the fact that they don't want to. Marvel's been trying to minimize the exposure of the X-Men & the Fantastic Four in an attempt to lower the popularity of both properties (which would in turn screw over Fox). Within the last few years, Marvel has had a bit of a feud with 20th Century Fox over the properties they still hold the movie rights for (the X-Men & the Fantastic Four). It grew to the point where, after the release of Marvel: Contest of Champions (the mobile Injustice knock-off by Kablam), Marvel imposed a complete ban on all X-Men & Fantastic Four characters in games made after Contest of Champions. One of the first victims of the ban was Marvel Mighty Heroes, whose developer (DeNA) had this to say on the matter.



To clarify what this ban means....

  • As stated earlier, all new games made after Contest of Champions are not allowed to use any X-Men & Fantastic Four characters. This includes the likes of Wolverine, Deadpool, Doctor Doom, Cyclops, Jean Grey/Phoenix, X-23, Storm, Magneto, Super-Skrull, Sentinel, & more.
  • Games made before the ban with active contracts, like Marvel Heroes (the PC MMO), can add whoever they want until their current contracts expires (Ex: Gazillion's existing contract with Marvel expires in 2019).
  • Remasters &/or ports of older games can be re-released untouched (Ex: The Deadpool remaster for PS4 & XB1).
  • The Maximoff Twins, Quicksilver (Pietro Maximoff) & Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff), are only allowed on a case-by-case basis (Ex: Lego Marvel's Avengers). Only their comic book & MCU incarnations can be used in the event that Marvel allows a developer to use one or both of the Twins, & zero references to their X-Men history can be made. They've also been banned from games more times than not, but their inclusion in certain games isn't impossible.
As for the timeline on how this has affected post-CoC games...
  • Avengers Alliance 2: No X-Men, No Fantastic Four, No Maximoff Twins
  • Avengers Academy: No X-Men, No Fantastic Four, No Maximoff Twins
  • Lego Marvel's Avengers: The Maximoff Twins are present, No X-Men, No Fantastic Four
  • Marvel Mighty Heroes: No X-Men, No Fantastic Four, No Maximoff Twins
  • Marvel Future Fight: No X-Men, No Fantastic Four, No Maximoff Twins
  • Disney Infinity 2.0 & 3.0: No X-Men, No Fantastic Four, No Maximoff Twins
I hope this clears things up a bit.

Q. Why Marvel allowed Capcom to add X-Men and Fantastic Four characters now? Via DLC? if the rumors assumed to be real.
A.

If anything, the upcoming relaunch for the X-Men comics as well as Funko releasing a ton of X-merch as of recently may be a sign that the rumor of Marvel lifting the video game ban sometime in 2017 could have some truth to it.

Also, just a heads-up, no X-Men/F4 characters in the base roster, but they will be DLC (at least according to Ryce, who leaked MvCI in the first place).

It's not the most ideal solution, but it's certainly better than nothing.

It's a nice and terrible way to get around licensing deals

Nice in that those characters will be in the game

Terrible in that they'll cost extra

If you're talking about Ryce's post, that part seems to be more of an assumption, rather than insider info.

robot's source is saying it'll be in the lower 30s or something. Hope that's wrong.

Ryce also mentioned that the decision to use the Fox characters as DLC-only wasn't Capcom's decision.

As mentioned earlier, it was likely either this or no Fox characters at all, so I'm glad Capcom found a way to bring them back.....even if they are gonna cost extra.

Wolverine

All $5 a piece. They could do a Season Pass on X-Men characters ALONE.

While I'm still somewhat holding my breath regarding the Fox characters, I do hope that if true, they aren't just all veterans. I mean obviously you'd need to prioritize getting Wolverine, Doom, and Mags in there, and Storm, Cyclops, Cable, Gambit, and Sentinel will also be in high demand, among others, but I would like Magik or Nightcrawler get a shot....also Dragon Man.

I wonder where Klaw stands in everything. He'd be great, but he kind of straddles the line between Black Panther character and FF character.

Yes please! Though awesome as he is he's also quite niche and probably won't be part of the MCU (heard the director of GotG hates Rider) :(. He is coming back in the comics in some way or form though so at least he has that going for him.

I'm alright with a season pass fully dedicated to X-Men but I'm sure it will be an even split between Capcom characters and X-Men plus one other MCU character. Perhaps 10 characters?

I'm more curious of many SFV characters will Capcom push for this game.

On my best days, I'm a fan of both. But MvC3 burned me pretty badly with not really giving me much of what I wanted (More Spider-villains, most Cosmic Marvel stuff, Mega Man X, Jon Talbain, a Sengoku BASARA rep, etc.), so it left me pretty jaded besides Dante, Super Skrull, Rocket Raccoon and Vergil.

That said, I'm probably more hype for the Marvel side just a bit this time around, because I'm hoping the idea that less/no mutants on the base roster will be the best shot some Marvel characters will get at being in this game. Though, at least seeing X finally join the party and Capcom talking about "leveraging their older IPs" gives me hope for even that side, as well.

That said, my top wants for each side

Marvel:

Lizard
Hobgoblin/Green Goblin
Doc Ock

Capcom:

Jon Talbain
Gene
any one of the Red Earth/Warzard 4 (Leo, Tessa, Kenji, Mai-Ling)
