Square Enix revealed Kate Bishop’s debut in Marvel’s Avengers yesterday, but in the reveal video they teased another hero: Black Panther.
You can watch the full trailer for the Crystal Dynamics reveal below, in which we get to see Kate Bishop putting her skills to the test, helping the Avengers bring the fight to AIM. However, near the end of the video, as the Hulk sits atop his throne, you can see Black Panther’s helmet near the green giant’s feet, lying on the ground between Captain America’s shield and other superhero outfits. .
Black Panther was rumored to be joining the Marvel’s Avengers roster earlier this year, in a data m ine leak that occurred just before the game’s September launch. Later, Crystal Dynamics confirmed the addition of Black Panther, but announced that any details about the character would be postponed out of respect for Chadwick Boseman, who played the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and sadly passed away in late August.
As revealed yesterday, Kate Bishop will be joining Marvel’s Avengers early next month on December 8. At some point after that, Clint Barton will be added to the game’s expanding roster, and you can see the character redesign in the previous reveal trailer for Bishop. Later on, we have little idea what to expect for the game, but we do know that Spider-Man and Black Panther will join their ranks, the former being a PlayStation exclusive character.
