After making fans wait, and wait, and wait some more, Marvel and Square Enix finally announced an open-world Avengers video game at this year’s E3.
Thew news of the impending arrival of Marvel’s Avengers on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Google Stadia was met with much joy.
Then everyone watched the trailer.
And… ummm… who are these people and why do they sound so odd?
Granted, no one expected a Avengers video game to have the characters look and sound exactly like they have for the past 10-plus years (okay, EVERYONE expected that), but still, why do they all look and sound so… generic?
I could get over them not looking like the actors if they didn't look so damn weird.— Mamba Mentality 8/24 (@TheArnold_SoM) June 11, 2019
They got Cap looking like an over the hill trainer at Planet Fitness.
Why do they all look like they just got off a hard shift at the local factory? They don’t even look that great in their costumes, the color is so muted. These are Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and they look like bootleg knockoffs.
Sure, the game will probably end up being pretty awesome, but first impressions are everything, right? And based on the reactions to the trailer on social media, first impressions are mostly filled with a feeling of being let down.

This must be a PlayStation 2 exclusive— Box Fan On High All Year Round (@TerrellChuggs) June 11, 2019
Also… where is Hawkeye?
Oh, well, at least Keanu Reeves looks like a total badass in the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.
Marvel’s Avengers is set for release on May 15, 2020.
