@Z3RO180: Actually, Taskmaster is more well known than Moon Knight and Tasky even had his own mini recently.

@SegaPlatinum Bayonetta isn't a Capcom character, so she can't be in the game. @Squeaky : Team bonus wouldn't work in a fighting game and neither would a "Side scrolling adventure. It's a fighting game and the fighting is what matters. Also, Gambit isn't doing much these days, so it's understandable that he didn't return.

the dream of many fans of marvel vs capcom would see these characters in combat character selection is incredible, and if they could add to Bayonetta many more would join the wait and buy this fantastic game .....

I'm hoping for A LOT of DLC... Luke Cage, Hawkeye, Iron Fist, ...it would be nice to see team bonuses, like they have in MUA. Faster recovery for Avengers or X-teams etc. I it may be a pipe dream but I cool side scrolling "adventure" option would be cool.

ya for real, im hoping cyclops gets put into this game. i find characters like dormammu, M.O.D.O.K., and taskmaster a waste of space

Taskmaster is a funky choice but I find it hard to believe that such a minor character like this is in this while heavyweights like Daredevil and Doctor Strange have yet to be represented.
