As 2017 draws closer, the upcoming video game from Capcom, "Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite" is getting infinitely more thrilling and decidedly interesting as more and more characters are now confirmed to be joining the elite gang of battling superheroes and later on, some nefarious supervillains. So, just who are official and who are just a figment of imagination?

Capcom has announced that two more characters are set to join the roster in "Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite," which was previously outed to be Iron Man, Captain Marvel, Ryu, and Mega Man X. The new personalities which have been confirmed to be joining are the highly debated "Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds" character Morrigan and the shield bearing Captain America. In that gaming title, Morrigan was seen to be having the ability to lock her enemies in block stun along with a slew of projectiles. As such, the character's skill would lock the opponents in place, quite a vantage point for the new playable character.

Meanwhile, the shield-bearing, favorited Captain America's moves and strategies have not been confirmed yet. The straightforward character in "Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds" was toting his Shield Slash just massive and powerful enough to keep his enemies away. Captain America was also seen to be armed with Charging Star, a Herculean skill which could zip through projectiles and inflict damage at the same time. Now while Captain is sure easy to play in it, his versatility has also come into question. Will he come with surprising abilities in "Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite?"

Officially announced during Sony's PlayStation Experience press conference recently, "Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite" is scheduled to hit the shelves for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2017. "Infinite" will feature single-player and online multiplayer modes along with "Infinity Stones," which will provide players various boosts that are based on the elements such as power, space, time, reality, and soul and mind.
