E3: Spider-Man Swings to ‘Disney Infinity’

The Amazing Spider-Man is joining the rest of the Avengers, but not on the bigscreen just yet.

The character will be featured in a new play set as part of the “Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes” edition launching from Disney Interactive later this fall. The Mouse House already has revealed Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow as playable characters in the game.

The Spider-Man play set will feature a storyline which follows the Green Goblin as he tries to destroy S.H.I.E.L.D. After capturing Venom to extract and clone symbiotes from him, he hires Mysterio to be his second in command and wreak havoc on the Marvel universe. Players will fight the spreading symbiotes and face Mysterio and Green Goblin in the sewers, labs and skies above Manhattan (watch the trailer above).

Playable characters will include Spider-Man, Nick Fury, Iron Fist, Nova and Venom with additional appearances by White Tiger, Black Cat and Luke Cage.

Once players complete the Spider-Man play set game, the S.H.I.E.L.D. Hover Car, S.H.I.E.L.D.  Sky Cycle, Daily Bugle Building and more will be unlocked and can be used in te Toy Box.

The addition of Spidey was revealed during the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the videogame industry’s largest confab taking place this week in Los Angeles.
