You can play Marvel's Avengers either in single player, or co-op. It's entirely original adventure, being redesigned by Crystal Dynamics for an all knew adventure. The game begins when the launch of the Avengers HQ in San Francisco goes wrong, and the Avengers temporarily disband.
This is an original story for Marvel's Avengers. But you'll still recognise all the abilities of characters like Iron Man with his lasers, Captain America with his shield, and Hulk with his rage.
Marvel's Avengers will be a live service game. Crystal Dynamics revealed there will be new content for the game after launch constantly, and even hinted at a growing roster of heroes after launch.

In the brief teaser trailer, we can see Captain America's shield, Iron Man's gauntlet, and Thor's hammer. If those characters are playable in the game, then it stands to reason that the Avenger's game should revolve around a team of the more traditional Avengers, like 2012's Avengers Assemble from Joss Whedon that included the likes of Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk.
