WB Games and TT Games have announced Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, and released a teaser for the upcoming sequel. The short video was posted on Facebook and is a riff on the opening sequence from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which hit cinemas recently.
Obviously, if you haven't seen that film and want to go in completely fresh we'd recommend avoiding this video. For those that have seen it, we think you'll get what we mean if we say it's that Groot moment from the start.
The video also confirms a full-length trailer for the game will be released on May 23.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 will no doubt feature characters and plot points from the most recent crop of Marvel movies. A brief appearance from Doctor Strange is evidence of this.
The first Lego Marvel Super Heroes was released in 2013. In GameSpot's review Chris Barylick awarded it a 7/10, saying its "inviting visuals, surging music, and hilarious character interactions make for breezy entertainment."
He continued: "Weird moments, such as accidentally turning Mr. Fantastic into a tea kettle, and Iron Man doing the robot, further widen the smile you're sure to be wearing on your face. It's moments like these, along with taking down a suit of flying Hulkbuster armor via the House Party protocol from Iron Man 3--wherein half a dozen Iron Man suits soar in to pound on your opponent--that keep you coming back for more.
"Whether you're looking for a way to take down the Juggernaut or working to help a random citizen in Free Play mode, Lego Marvel Super Heroes is all sorts of web-slinging, shield-flinging, Hulk-smashing fun."
