MCU-inspired worlds collide in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 trailer

Riding on San Diego Comic-Con’s hype-fuelled wave, TT Games have ramped up the marketing for the sequel to 2013’s LEGO Marvel Superheroes a step further. The inventively-named LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 now lies only four months away and to celebrate we’ve gotten a new trailer focused on its main campaign’s central antagonist.


  • Whereas the original instalment in this makeshift, brick-busting franchise of licensed platformers brought a band of classic Marvel Comics foes together to wage war on Earth’s mightiest heroes, this time around the Avengers must reunite to battle the near-omnipotent menace of Kang the Conqueror and his armada of alien invaders.
  • Judging by our first glimpses at Kang as he lays siege to Earth, transforming iconic Marvel locales from our world – not to mention time-zones such as the Old West and 2099 – into the tyrannical city of Chronopolis, he scarcely needs any back-up, overseeing the predictable carnage from his high-flying intergalactic cruiser.
  • The sequel’s narrative would naturally seem short-lived without some resistance from a protagonist or 100, however. Sure enough, we catch glimpses of a plethora of heroes like Iron Man, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy fighting back, with most closely resembling their big-screen Marvel Cinematic Universe counterparts.
  • That said, new recruits are evidently along for the ride too, not least Spidey’s fan-favourite multiverse rival Spider-Gwen and – for those willing to shell out some extra cash for Superheroes 2’s newly-christened Deluxe Edition – the original Guardians roster, some of whom were recently teased in James Gunn’s Guardians Vol. 2.

Check out the full gameplay trailer in all its madcap, quite literally world-shattering glory for yourselves below. LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 assembles on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One – no word on an ‘enhanced for X’ version yet, however – and PC this November 14th.
