Marvel Rivals datamine teases 20 unannounced characters, including multiple Avengers and X-Men

With a decades-long list of characters to choose from, this game's roster may end up being humongous.

Marvel Rivals’ closed alpha test will include 19 playable characters, but a datamine of the game’s files has revealed even more potentially to come—and the list is quite exciting.

The datamined list is a who’s who of Marvel heroes and villains including those in the Avengers, X-Men, and Fantastic Four, with some fun new additions that deserve their time in the mainstream spotlight, like Jeff the Baby Land Shark and Squirrel Girl, according to the leaks.

One of Spider-Man’s ultimate villains (yet also sometimes ally), Venom, is on the list, as is the vampire-slayer Blade, a different version of Iron Fist, and Moon Knight, made famous by Oscar Isaac in the Disney Plus series.

The list also includes two new X-Men characters in Wolverine and Psylocke, all four members of the Fantastic Four, and Marvel mainstays Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye, and Black Widow.

The characters found in the files may be months or years away from releasing, or they could be scrapped entirely, as is the nature of datamines. The info found in the alpha files also includes several new potential map names, including Krakoa, The Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, Klyntar, and Hydra Erebus Base.

Here’s the full list of references to characters that were found in the files and are unconfirmed as of yet, according to what’s been leaked.
