Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 had 50 characters in the game so my dream roster is going to include 50 characters as well. I do not expect the game to have 50 characters at the start and I would say its much more realistic to expect some where between 30 and 40 characters.
There are rumors that the mutants will not be in the game and there are rumors that they won’t be in the game. The same can be said about Fantastic Four members so my list is going to assume that they will not be in the game.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 roster was the following:
|Capcom 1||Capcom 2||Marvel 1||Marvel 2|
|Arthur||Phoenix Wright||Doctor Doom||Sentinel|
|Crimson Viper||Strider Hiryu||Ghost Rider||Spiderman|
|Frank West||Viewtiful Joe||Iron Man||Thor|
My list has 15 characters returning from Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3:
|2||Chris Redfield||Resident Evil|
|3||Chun Li||Street Fighter|
|4||Dante||Devil May Cry|
|5||Frank West||Dead Rising|
|8||Jill Valentine||Resident Evil|
|10||Ryu (Confirmed)||Street Fighter|
|11||Nathan Spencer||Bionic Commando|
|13||Viewtiful Joe||Viewtiful Joe|
|15||Vergil||Devil May Cry|
That means there are 10 slots for new characters, some are returning from Marvel vs Capcom 2 and then there are others that are brand new to the series.
|16||Baby Bonnie Hood||Darkstalkers|
|17||Hayato Nekketsu||Rival Schools|
|20||Mega Man X (Confirmed)||Mega Man|
|21||Monster Hunter Monster||Monster Hunter|
|24||Rainbow Mika||Street Fighter|
As I said earlier, I am assuming that Mutants or Fantastic Four members. I am also assuming Marvel is going to want characters that are in their Marvel cinematic universe so that doesn’t leave a lot of returning members from Marvel 3. So in total, only 11 are returning.
|1||Captain America (Confirmed)||Avengers|
|2||Doctor Strange||Doctor Strange|
|6||Iron Fist||Netflix TV Series|
|7||Iron Man (Confirmed)||Avengers|
|9||Rocket Raccoon||Guardians of the Galaxy|
That opens the door for 14 new characters and not a single one of them was in Marvel vs Capcom 2 so its 14 new characters to the franchise.
|15||Captain Marvel (Confirmed)||Captain Marvel|
|16||Daredevil||Netflix TV Series|
|18||Groot||Guardians of the Galaxy|
|19||Jessica Jones||Netflix TV Series|
|21||Luke Cage||Netflix TV Series|
|23||Thanos||Guardians of the Galaxy|
|25||Winter Soldier||Captain America|
This is not really a post with a lot of content but I enjoy sitting down and thinking about who I would like to see in these video games. So thats my list, thats 50 characters that I would like to see in the new game thats coming out in 2017. Let me know, did I miss anyone you would like to see?
