Actor Michael B. Jordan Wants to See More Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, And I'm With Him

Actor Michael B. Jordan Wants to See More Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, And I'm With Him

When will we get taken for a ride once again?

The new console generation arrives this week with a slew of games, including one new entry for a notable Marvel franchise. Yet today, one actor is asking the tough question: where's Marvel Vs. Capcom?

In a paid partnership post with PlayStation on his Instagram, Michael B. Jordan is shown holding a DualSense controller and lauding the new PlayStation. After mentioning the gameplay and graphics, though, Jordan makes the statement: "We gotta figure out how to bring back Marvel Vs. Capcom 2."

If you didn't catch it in its prime, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is the three-on-three tag fighting game starring characters from both Marvel comics and Capcom games. This was in the pre-Marvel Cinematic Universe days, so it featured a full lineup of Marvel fighters, from Captain America on through the X-Men.

Despite the fervor for both the second game and its successor Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, the series faltered with 2017's Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite. It just couldn't hold its own compared to the other two, and the crossover franchise has been silent since.

Yet community efforts have been pushing the older Marvel games. Evo 2020 was even poised to host an MvC2 invitational, before the event was canceled earlier this year. Organizers have stood firm however, putting together exhibitions and events for those who are still pushing Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to its limits.

As I wrote earlier this year, it's been two decades and there's still been nothing quite like Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. The killer lineup, the jazzy soundtrack, and the over-the-top power of its souped-up roster is something else. I'm with Jordan; let's get some Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 going again.
