First, let’s see what happened on 2014 and 2013. The number of heroes we got were:
|TOTAL||- 29 -||- 23 -|
|TOTAL||- 23 -||- 23 -|
*I’m not counting the “playable villains”, released by lockboxes, because they're already in the game.
*I'm not counting the Dark Avengers as new villains because they're direct rip-offs from the existing heroes. So, the effort to make them was the same to make a new alt. Same for the Horsemen of Apocalypse.
- Playdom launched this game near the first Avengers movie premiere, since then, all Marvel movies got an SpecOps in M:AA, with no exception.
- The comics' big crossover events got SpecOps in 2012 and 2013 (AvX, AoU and Infinity), but 2014's events (Original Sin and AXIS) didn't receive any attention.
- TV Shows never got anything game related in the game. Coulson is in the game, but he isn't TV exclusive.
- Sony movies (Amazing Spider-Man) earned some themed supplies and a new alt.
2015 Marvel events
- Guardians of the Galaxy and Inhumans are the current focus on Marvel.
- The Krees are strongly linked to these teams.
- Female spideys are doing fine in the comics (Spider-Man was always a strong name in the comics). Spider-Gwen and Silk are getting their own comics (separately).
- Wolverine is dead on the comics. Some of his "relatives" are getting highlights to "replace" him.
- Falcon is the new current Captain America. Thor is now a woman.
- There is no Sony/Marvel movie scheduled to 2015.
- There is a new Fantastic Four movie, by FOX, scheduled to 2015, but we better not talk about that...
- 2016 will bring us Civil War in the MCU!!!!
- The MCU will also have Doctor Strange, GoG 2, Ragnarok, Black Panther, Infinity War (twice), Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) and Inhumans in the future.
- Playdom mentioned that they'll release 2 or 3 more Runaways.
SpecOps & Covert Tasks
In 2013 there were 13 "task-based events that give us a new hero", 11 in 2014. I'm hoping to get 12 in 2015.
|AGE OF ULTRON MOVIE
Easily one of the biggest unreleased heroes. Has a great scenario and a whole set of interesting villains and "sidekicks". Playdom is not holding Marvel's big names, in 2014 we got Iceman, Anti-Venom, Ka-Zar, Blade, Nova and all the movie stars. I believe that the most popular ones will finally come in 2015, including Namor and...
Like I said, the big boys are coming in 2015. The focus is all in the space now, so Playdom'd better launching Silver Surfer soon, before Fox screw him up. I'm serious, do it Playdom befrore it's too late, before Fox transform the badass herald of Galactus in a Hawaiian guy who get contaminated by radioactive silver or something like that...
|MORE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Time for more GoG members. The second movie is coming only in 2017, there is no sense on waiting that long for newcomers. Phylla-Vel seems the best option, she is SOOOO COOL and her Kree background fits well in the Marvel's current moment.
|AGENTS OF SHIELD ***SPOILER ALERT***
It didn't happened on the first season, but now we got Quake, Mockingbird and bigger villains. EVERYONE was excited about Skye been Quake, everyone wants to play as her, Playdom may not loose this opportunity.
Comics crossover's events?
Captian Marvel, Photon, Pulsar, Spectrum... she is pretty big and might get at least a CT to be released. Do you remember the classic cover of Secret Wars? All characters featured in that cover are already in the game, except Monica. Maybe she'll get an important role in 2015's events and can be the prize for themed SpecOps or CT.
More Runaways are coming, at least one may get SpecOps or CT. Chase is the more interesting for me.
|CLOAK AND DAGGER
Probably integrated to the chapter's history, tied to Kingpin's debut, along with any other "street level" villain.
|WELCOME TO CANADA
Come on Playdom, we've already traveled to your "brother" England, but where is your neighbor? There are so many possibilities in Canada...
Wiccan is pretty popular and could be good to introduce more magic-related villains. It's worthy to remember that in 2016 we'll get Dr. Strange's movie, maybe magic will get the highlights soon.
Another great character. Maybe the most popular unreleased female character. A good option for a X-Men themed event (if Marvel doesn't turn her into Inhuman =P ).
|Jessica Jones Netflix series was recently confrimed to debut in 2015.
It's hard to predict how Jessica will be portrait in the series, but if she comes to the game, she may come as a superhero, as Jewel.
Like I said, Playdom can give her an event to please the fans who will seen her on screen and will and to play as her. But this all depends on when the show will debut, if it will conflict with PD's schedule.
Already confirmed on Chapter 8
Like Dracula, a good Avengers' cartoon enemy to debut in the game.
The Serpent Old
I believe the Season 2 will end in 2015.
10 in 2013, only 5 in 2014 (8 if you count the pre-seasons). I'm expecting for 8 in 2015.
A popular (former) Thunderbird member, seems the ideal PVP bet for me.
Same bet I did for 2014. Former Thunderbolt and current Agents of SMASH member, ongoing cartoon.
I don't like "clones", but I think RSHulk has a big chance to come soon to M:AA. She's popular, violent enough to fit as PVP prize and her role in the Fear Itself comics maybe made Playdom remember her as a possible release.
Another hero that I personally don't like, but he also have some fans. I though he would came along with the Dark Reign SpecOps, but he didn't. He will cause a lot of controversy when he arrive in M:AA and controversy is usually very good for the developers.
The most popular Inhuman yet to come. Interesting to debut near the Namor SpecOps I'm expecting.
She is related to Guardians of the Galaxy, to Asgard and even with another company. She is perfect for a PVP prize.
Not the most interesting "spacial character" around, but seems to fit well as PVP prize.
On 2015, my bet it's that we'll get an Halloween-themed PVP Tournament, instead of a SpecOps. Werewolf is the guy, with Man-Thing as a good option too.
CPs & cia
We got 6 in 2013 and 6 in 2014. I'm expecting more 6 in 2015.
Another very popular unreleased character. Could also get a nice vampire alt around the Halloween, it would be a good "refresh" to get a Halloween-PVP and an Halloween-alt instead of a Halloween-SpecOps
Another clone, I know, but Quicksilver is a really strong character in the game and along with his debut on MCU, he can get a clone-char.
To complement the Namor-SpecOps I'm expecting (just like Ka-Zar and Shanna). I chose her over Namora due the upcoming Civil War movie... who knows?
A great GoG member. Could be another "white mage" character, like Rescue, we have really few pure-healing character options.
One of the most interesting Runaway characters remaining. Alex Wilder is more like an NPC, Xavin may not come before Skrulls arrival in the game (which may happen only after the whole Kree wave), and Gertrude and Old Lace can wait for the next year, we'd better take Cloak and Dagger as a duo this year, I don't believe we'll get two duos now.
The other Runaways member(s) I think will complete the ones Playdom promised to release.
