Disney Infinity has two more heroes and one villain confirmed for it’s Fall release. Marvel has revealed that Venom, Nova, and Iron Fist will all be joining the ever expanding roster of Disney Infinity: Marvel Superheroes. On top of that, Marvel announced that their will be a Spider-man Play Set, that comes with Spidey and Nova. Venom, Iron Fist, and Nick Fury will all be usable in the Spider-man play set. While Venom and Spider-man are natural fits, the inclusion of Fury, Nova, and Iron Fist may seem odd. Spider-man actually teams with Nova, Iron Fist, and Nick Fury on the Disney cartoon Ultimate Spider-man, and this play set looks to draw from that universe, with Spider-man once again being voiced by actor Drake Bell.
The plot of the play set involves Green Goblin cloning the symbiote, and infecting New York’s inhabitants. Spider-man then teams up with Iron Fist, Nova, Nick Fury and even Venom in order to defeat this infection. No word on pricing, or release date, but it’s safe to assume each character will cost $12.99 individually, and the play set will run upwards of $34.99. Not yet confirmed as figures are the Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus and Mysterio; all of whom were shown off in this play set’s trailer.
This reporter’s opinion: Disney please stop. My wallet is going to be massacred by Disney Infinity already, and the inclusion of a full Spider-man play set is only going to make this worse. It looks awesome, and plays on all of my childhoods loves of Spider-man so well. If they announce a Guardian’s play set too, I’m completely broke.
