A Twitter user named Miller has posted content that will theoretically be announced for Marvel’s Avengers very soon. Apparently, Crystal Dynamics has been a victim of datamining because we do not explain how this user managed to filter so many things.
What has attracted the most attention is a location that looks a lot like Wakanda, as well as dialogues (with voices included) of a character speak ing in English with an African accent. In a sentence or two we can hear him talk about protecting Wakanda for what many assume to be Black Panther.
Levels in Africa
In one of the trailers for Kate Bishop we could even see a reference to an evil Hulk who sits on a throne, at his feet is the shield of Captain America and the mask of the African hero. So there are already several official and unofficial winks.

Crystal Dynamics has repeatedly commented that updates to the game will be completely free, including new heroes. The only one announced so far is Kate Bishop, but then Hawkeye and Black Panther himself would arrive, all three with their respective battle passes.
The promises are exciting, as far as possible, and the game has been widely criticized for its playability. It is already known that the game has not recovered the investment and that Square Enix is waiting to do so through the DLCs, so these updates have to go very well if they want to win back the players.
Black Panther and Wakanda sound like a good plan, plus some players have pointed out that the leaked voice sounds a lot like Christopher Judge, Kratos’ voice actor, which is always a plus point.
Marvel’s Avengers is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It is also playable next gen via backward compatibility, but the actual version for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S will be released in 2021.
