According to the site, the flash source code contained a list of names of what may be the roster for the game.

MarvelCapcom
 
 
 
The "leaked" flash source has since been fixed. I'm disappointed that I won't see a Daredevil vs Phoenix Wright lawyer battle, but Amaterasu and Mike Haggar is an awesome addition. 
 
DUDE! 
MIKE HAGGAR!
MUSTACHE!

Wow. No Ken?? Wonder if Ryu could possibly switch to a Ken style like in the original MvC. 
 
Anywhoo if this is the official roster, it's a damn good one. Both Frank and Chuck in the same game <3. Shame that Wesker beat Barry to the punch for the 2nd RE character...but I was expecting as much.

#3 Posted by White_Silhouette (468 posts) -

Good list. Was wanting Venom to be in it. However DLC characters are going to happen.

#4 Posted by Bam_D_Leprechaun (795 posts) -

DEADPOOL, FUCK YEAH!~

#5 Posted by Redbullet685 (5980 posts) -

Not enough Street Fighter. Where is Ken, Zangeif and other SF characters?Where is Cyclops, storm, Cable, and venom? Where is Mega Man and why both Chuck Greene and Frank West? I hope this isnt the real list.

"Chuck Greene
 
List is fake.

No Mega Man, but Zero?

#8 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Haggar!
 
Gief!

i'm pretty sure this is fake

#11 Posted by soroxas94 (9 posts) -

maybe its just an unfinished list because no mega man just doesnt make sense

#12 Edited by jakob187 (21503 posts) -

I'm not buying it.  Here's why: 

  • Slim list.  Only 36 characters.  Doesn't define the insanity of a MvC game.
  • Zero is in the game, but no Mega Man?
  • Frank West AND Chuck Greene?  Amaterasu?  I can see Frank, and maybe even Amaterasu...but I just don't see them double dipping the Dead Rising franchise.
  • Most of the Capcom list is basically just TvC all over again.  MvC is a bit more differentiated than that.
  • No Sentinel, Cyclops, Storm, Omega Red, Ken...don't know.  Just seems short and excluding key players in the franchise.
#13 Posted by InfiniteGeass (2041 posts) -

Wesker? Instant buy now.

#14 Posted by Atomasist (2818 posts) -

Looks fake to me.

#15 Posted by President_Barackbar (3344 posts) -
@Redbullet685:  The heavy reliance on Street Fighter is what ruined previous iterations of MvC for me.
#16 Posted by punkxblaze (2877 posts) -

I've seen other supposedly leaked rosters that, while still slim, included Megaman Vollnut and Venom, so this list is definitely suspect.

#17 Posted by Gambit (727 posts) -

List is crap they have already said there weren't putting any members of the fantastic four in it. I would be very said if that list was the real roster all of my excitement for this game would fly out the window.

#18 Posted by TheGremp (2064 posts) -

The Capcom list makes me very happy...  The Marvel side looks pretty solid as well.  If this is the real roster, this game is going to be ridiculously awesome.

#19 Posted by mazik765 (2315 posts) -
@jakob187:  While I agree it is probably a fake list, there are only going to be about 36 or so characters. To expect fully polygonal copies of all the character from MvC2 would be crazy.
#20 Edited by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

Thank god, only one shoto. Don't need that bullshit clogging the list. If you need Ken,. Akuma, Dan, and Sakura, I guess you'll only have a dozen other games to do that in.  
edit 
Oh Akuma's on there. Of course he is. 

#21 Posted by Lunar_Aura (2780 posts) -

If Ammy's in there I'm gonna do my first midnight release.

*points at Super Street Fighter IV* 
 
THAT is 35, 36 characters already...something like that.  Granted, that's not using MT Framework, but it's not odd to expect a big roster again as well.  I don't see why they WOULDN'T. 
 
I mean, I can look at this list and say "a lot of these choices make sense, and even exclusions make sense". 
 
Why have Cyclops when you have Iron Man?  Cyclops move set was pretty weak, and a lot of people just reverted over to using Iron Man instead.  Why have Zangief when you have Mike Haggar?  Why have Ken and Dan and other shoto characters when you already have Ryu and Akuma?  Why have Dhalsim when you have Mr. Fantastic?  Why have Strider and Captain Commando and Jin, etc...when you have Elektra, who can fill that melee character with potentially crazy shit just as well as those three? 
 
One issue with MvC2 was the amount of crazy choice.  Narrowing that down can be a very good thing to make a more concise fighting experience.  However, this is MvC!!!  Narrowing shit down is not the philosophy that we apply when we are looking at this franchise.  We want all kinds of crazy, over-the-top, ridiculous choice!  Therefore, a narrow list just doesn't seem legit to me. 
 
Again, though - I expect at least half of that list to be confirmed.  Thor would be a great addition to the game, and with the push that Marvel is making for Avengers characters in the movie space and comic space, it's not unlikely that we'll see him in it.  However, what place does Super Skrull or Taskmaster honestly fill that others don't already? 
 
Also...no Psylocke is suspicious to me. 
 
I'm not expecting every character from MvC2.  Actually, I can think of at least 14 characters or so that should just get tossed out.  Nonetheless, there's just some really odd choices in this list.

That's my point exactly. Expect maybe ~34-36 characters in the games release MAX. MvC2 had like 50+ characters. Expecting that same amount of characters to be made polygonal and balanced for the release of the game is setting your expectations pretty high.

Zero is awesome in Tats vs Capcom.
#26 Posted by Onigenko (335 posts) -

Wait, no Dormammu on Marvel side, even though he's in the trailer? Mr Fantastic is in, even though no one from Fantastic Four should be in? No Storm, one of the most popular female characters on Marvel side? 
 
I think it's fake, duders.

Dormammu is a boss character. They could be leaving some obvious choices off so they can sell it as DLC later.

 HOLY SHIT

#29 Edited by Fortenium (102 posts) -

You are missing Tron Bonne. 
 
Other than that, since this already occurred twice, I think this very well may be real, but not complete. Some characters may still be in development for the time. You never know. 

People posting about the addition of Chuck: Apparently, Chuck is a costume for Frank

Thats not that surprising to me. 
His VA rumored he was doing some work on a new game as Wesker that wasn't a RE game.

Thats not odd. Zero was the only Megaman character in SVC Chaos.

They officially said that MVC 3 will have less chars then MVC 2... why?
 
  • Less development time
  • new Engine (for MVC2 they reused MVC1's engine)
  • All characters(new ones like Frank west and dante) have to be given new movesets  models and stuff
  • Maybe they want to balance it better then MVC2?
 
Also the list seems a bit fake...
 
PS: ANYONE REMEMBERS THAT RUMOR LIST FOR SUPER 4? WHAT NOW GB COMMUNITY? HUH?
... so there might be a "real list" somewhere... leaked by capcom on purpose or by a reliable source
#33 Posted by Slax (885 posts) -

No Carnage or Venom? IF this is real this is sad.

#34 Posted by Symphony (1913 posts) -

 While the list could be fake, seeing Amaterasu and Hsien-Ko there got me excited.

this is old, and fake, and we really didnt need to drag it on these forums aswell...sigh

...old? Was only posted around a day ago. Unless you mean its actual source, to which I can't get to through the link annoyingly enough =/
#37 Posted by MysteriousBob (6273 posts) -

I'm also calling bullshit. I mean, do they really need both Dead Rising protagonists? I think they can use the roster slots better than that.

Haggar will most likely have a very similar move set to Zangeif.

ill never understand why people want a lot of SF characters in vs games... go play SF if you want those characters. And Zangief, or grapplers in general, are terrible in VS games which are way too fast and chaotic for grapplers

I was going to say that as well.  
 
Just seeing Mr. Fantastic on the list made me realize immediately that it was a fake.  This roster imo has it's ups and downs but we'll see what happens.  Who knows??  Maybe, just MAYBE they will release character DLC like they did on Marvel Ultimate Alliance.  I won't give my hopes up but you never know.

Amaterasu? 
 
I'm sold.

#46 Posted by Loghorn (40 posts) -

This list was done by a troll over at shoryuken months ago & has admitted that he was trolling when he posted it. 
 
 If it’s not from either the staff at Capcom, or the staff from either Capcom Unity, Shoryuken, Team Sp00ky, or Eventhubs, don’t believe it. 

#47 Posted by Yelix (327 posts) -

Seems fine, but I really, REALLY want Phoenix Wright to be in it. I mean, what could She-Hulk bring to the mix? I'm not a big comic book guy or anything, but what is special about her?

#48 Posted by fwylo (3556 posts) -

I could dig that even if it's close to true.

#49 Edited by I_love_Eva_Braun (481 posts) -

Doom,Magneto and Deadpool = Sold
 
Still,would love to see Venom and Bison in the game

#50 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

Haggar and not Zangief?  I cry foul
