The Oculus blog hints that this game will feature additions of superheroes to come, so if you don't see your favorite superhero, chances are MARVEL is aware and already working to bring them into the game.

Disney unveiled the first Marvel virtual reality game: Marvel Powers United VR.

"VR is the flawless medium for a Super Hero game, and there are a couple things that make MARVEL Powers United VR especially exciting", said Steve Arnold, Head of Oculus Studios. Speakers during the announcement discussed how different it felt playing different heroes in the game, saying that the height difference between Hulk and Rocket Raccoon was even taken into account to fully flesh out the VR experience. The inclusion of Captain Marvel is particularly interesting as it suggests that heroes not included in the Marvel cinematic universe - at least not yet - might make an appearance in the game. Fans unable to attend the event can keep an eye on the official website for the latest updates. No word was given on if the game would be compatible with all of Oculus current and future hardware plans. Next week someone please ask if we get to play as him, will we have to crawl on our floors?
