[[WMG:Guesses on the ''[=MvC3=]'' roster.]]
* From sillouettes from the trailer and promotional materials (bolded means confirmed):
** Marvel: '''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica''', '''Doctor Doom''', '''[[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Dormammu]]''', '''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}''', '''[[ComicBook/FantasticFour Super Skrull]]''', '''[[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]'''
** Capcom: '''[[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Felicia]]''', '''[[StreetFighter Chun-Li]]''', '''[[VideoGame/DeadRising Frank West]]''' (definitely '''[[Franchise/ResidentEvil Albert Wesker]]'''), '''[[Franchise/DevilMayCry Dante]]'''
*** Those guesses seem to be right. Additionally, the mysterious female above Deadpool in the promo art [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=33040&id=103866276322773 is most likely]] '''[[Franchise/DevilMayCry Trish]]''', while the game's [[http://www.eventhubs.com/news/2010/apr/17/all-official-marvel-vs-capcom-3-works/ official announcement]] also says that '''ComicBook/{{Storm}}''' and '''ComicBook/{{Magneto}}''' will be making a reappearance, so fans of ''2'' can rejoice that two of the [[FanNickname Four]] [[GameBreaker Gods]] are returning.
*** I'll lol if the gods get {{nerf}}ed. Also, I hope '''Franchise/SpiderMan''' gets a more competitive moveset.
*** [[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/np5/mvc3-e3fix.jpg This new promo poster from E3]] seems to heavily affirm Super Skrull, Dr. Doom, Frank West, and Trish. Your guess is as good as mine on who that fifth guy on the far right (next to Deadpool) is.
* Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}, ComicBook/EmmaFrost, [[VideoGame/GodHand Gene]], '''Comicbook/GhostRider''', Comicbook/ThePunisher, and '''[[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]]''' have officially been [[http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/8429873 jossed.]] But hey, it's still possible that we'll get DLC, right?
** Ugh, I hope so. I said if Daredevil and Ghost Rider didn't make the cut I would eat my hat. Also [[VideoGame/{{Killer7}} Mask de Smith]], I was absolutely positive he would be in there.
** Ditto for the Franchise/FantasticFour. The Super Skrull is in the game in their place.
** And forget about seeing characters from ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' and ''VideoGame/PowerStone''.
*** What? Why does ''Capcom'' hate Power Stone these days?
*** Because it's neither ''StreetFighter'' nor ''VideoGame/MegaMan'', dummy.
*** How can anyone say with a straight-face that [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Kyosuke Kagami]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yy02P6ZxgJE wouldn't]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xljvV0l4W7s be]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4-Ce_00PB0 fun]]. He already has a set of well-defined fighting-game moves, his own game heavily uses assists and aerial combos, he's already been playable in 2-D on ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNK2MarkOfTheMillennium Capcom vs. SNK 2]]'', he plays far differently from a Shotoclone, and you know what, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfFH8nvHOzM Just]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfNHdcTD8FE look]].
** And now, ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} and '''Comicbook/DoctorStrange''' were jossed as well.
** VideoGame/MegaManX is also jossed.
** You won't be seeing any ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'', or ''Franchise/BreathOfFire'' characters. [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII Gill]] isn't in the game either.
* I'm gonna say '''[[Comicbook/TheAvengers Hawkeye]]'''. The four other characters appearing in the films (Iron man, Hulk, Thor, Captain Amaerica) are confirmed, so why not him too?
* [[VideoGame/MegaManX Green Biker Dude]], '''[[VideoGame/MegaManX Zero]]''', [[VideoGame/MegaManX and Iris.]] I wonder what Deadpool would say if I Iris died on Zero's team...
* '''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe''' is pretty much confirmed, he's on the bottom right in the newest silhouette picture. Personally this troper is hoping that Marvel includes Comicbook/HowardTheDuck.
* What? no mention of [[ComicBook/SquirrelGirl The Anti-Life?]], her ability to beat up everyone already fits in with a fighting game.
* [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Mega Man Volnutt]] will probably return because there is a ''Legends'' stage.The fact that we only have around 10 stages, means this will be the only stage representing the Mega Man series. The only Logical reason for that is that the Mega Man in the game is the Legends one.
** '''Tron Bonne''' is back and playable, so Volnutt is probably not going to be in. Let's hope that Zero makes the jump from ''Tatsunoko vs Capcom'' to ''3''.
*** Yes, but ''Mega Man Legends 3'' is in development. Which makes this EXTREMELY likely.
* '''Strider Hiryu''' will be confirmed absent. They are quite serious about avoiding repetition (Dormammu > Ghost Rider) so Dante will fulfill the spirit of Strider Hiryu.
** Actually, there is actually a good chance of Strider Hiryu coming back and he plays differently from Dante anyway.
*** Dante gets another special that involves a giant ball of energy circling him. Hmm, sounds similar.
*** Not really and they're still different enough to co exist.
*** Strider Hiryu deconfirmed! http://twitter.com/Ryota_Niitsuma/status/28517821235 ""I know that Strider Hiryu is popular overseas. This time around, the concept of the game is different, so we did not consider him." Sad day indeed. Overshadowed by the release of Zero.
*** His deconfirmation is now invalid as of the announcement of [[UpdatedRerelease Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3]].
* A new silhouette seems to indicate '''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Crimson Viper]]''' might make the cut.
* I'm seeing a distinct lack of Capcom villains. I'm gonna put a vote in for [[VideoGame/MegaMan Bass]] and M. Bison. Bonus points if he says [[MemeticMutation OF]] [[AscendedMeme COURSE!!]]
** Bass is more of a {{antihero}}. If you want a ''Mega Man'' villain, there's always Dr. Wily, Splash Woman, [[VideoGame/MegaManX Sigma, Vile]], [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Omega or Dr. Weil.]]
** Bringing up Capcom villains and not mentioning [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Wesker]]? For shame.
*** Albert Wesker is in, baby. And he's awesome.
* These two are never going to happen, but having The Smith Syndicate from ''VideoGame/{{Killer 7}}'' and Scrooge [=McDuck=] would be amazing.
* Scrooge? For Creator/{{Disney}}? Nah, get someone cooler like [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]]!
** There won't be any Disney character though. That said, they can always use Marvel's own Howard The Duck or Even Slapstick of the New Warriors.
* The Episode 3 Trailer might introduce returning "Gods" Magneto and Storm. As well as Mega Man (and Roll, possibly).
** Doubt Roll will be back if Mega Man classic returns. If anything, it might be Mega Man classic and [[VideoGame/MegaManX Zero]]. I'm also thinking it might be Storm with ComicBook/BlackPanther.
*** I was actually being general on which Mega Man it'll be. We know it isn't [[VideoGame/MegaManX X]], I don't think it'll be [[VideoGame/MegaManLegends Volnutt/Trigger]] due to Tron's return. I was thinking [[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]] and [[VideoGame/MegaMan Roll]] being the coverage finish. Roll's managed an underdog status getting into the last ''Vs.'' title. As for Black Panther... who knows, I just figured Magneto would be a solid un-reveal for a return.
* Unfortunate that Phoenix is unlikely to be in the game (he could be a good counterpart to Daredevil who isn't in either), but what about Franziska von Karma? Didn't ''Tatsunoko vs. Capcom'' have some data on her moves but dropped her entirely since Phoenix couldn't be added? I mean, with her [[WhipItGood whip]] and skill, she definitely can be in a fighting game? And on a lesser note: Godot, he had a cool pose with the SwordCane in the last case of the 3rd game.
** Heck, Franziska could be paired up with '''ComicBook/SheHulk''', their interactions would be comedy gold.
* Come on, people! ComicBook/MoonKnight! I'd also wager on Mega Man classic (Pre-''X''), Zero, either Akuma or M. Bison, and maybe Brock, the military guy from ''Dead Rising''. At least one psychopath should make it in... In fact, I doubt it, but how cool would it be if Adam the Clown made it in?!
** '''Akuma''' is unlikely since they are avoiding characters with similar moves. Bison is a possibility or maybe Urien from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII''.
* Unfortunately, Phoenix is out. But what about his rival, Miles Edgeworth, who was [[EnsembleDarkhorse popular]] enough to get his own game, which was different from the main games? Or what about Apollo Justice, if they're trying to bring in the new story that has started in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' universe?
** How about Steel Samurai? Sure he's pretty obscure, but how about him squaring off with Silver Samurai?
*** Steel Samurai is a fictional character of a show in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series, not really a candidate for the game. Silver Samurai won't be coming back anyway. If there's an AA character, it would be one of the other Attorneys or Maybe even Gumshoe. Or none at all for that matter.
* Before anyone asks, yes, the ''Franchise/BreathOfFire'' franchise wasn't included--this time, though, we actually [[http://www.dragon-tear.net/forum/showpost.php?p=253996&postcount=15 got a reason from Capcom for it]] via [[http://twitter.com/Ryota_Niitsuma/status/28520257938 a tweet from the development staff]] (Japanese). Specifically, there were initial plans to include Fou-lu from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' but these were cut due to the ''Marvel vs. Capcom'' series being geared towards Western audiences; the developers would still like to include a certain draconic GodEmperor WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds in a future VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever.
** The interesting note here--that the planned cameo was from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' (which is literally a ten-year-old game) and ''not'' ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireDragonQuarter''--whilst the latter game was most ''definitely'' a cause of a BrokenBase outside of Japan (and has even been accused of being a FranchiseKiller), it ''did'' do reasonably well in Japan and has a popular fandom. Capcom actually does seem to have been taking the semi-official view of disowning ''Dragon Quarter'' since about 2007 due to the poor reaction outside of the US.
** At any rate, any appearances of ''Franchise/BreathOfFire'' chars are very likely to be with VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever games not geared primarily for Western audiences and probably featuring chars from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIV'' or one of the earlier games in the franchise (barring mass fandom demand).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vMlE2vEvm0 DLC has been confirmed]], with '''[[Franchise/ResidentEvil Jill Valentine]]''' and '''[[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Shuma-Gorath]]''' as the first two available characters. The hopes and dreams of many a fan now run high.
* It was recently shown that a stage will be set in The Hand's lair, probably hinting that Elektra will make it in. Since all the Stages belong to a character.
* I'm not guessing here, just giving a new info: '''[[StreetFighter Akuma]]''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zA50TIXLk6I is quite likely confirmed, though not officially yet.]]
** VideoGame/MegaManX is highly likely to become a DLC. [[http://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fshoryuken.com%2Fcontent%2Fjapan-s-top-55-most-requests-marvel-vs-capcom-3-dlc-characters-2594%2F&session_token=KegzazVqPkJBogYVE8_j0VsvioJ8MTI5NDU2MTUyNQ%3D%3D He's the freakin' #1 top contender for Capcom characters poll in Japan.]]
*** Word on the street is that that poll is a faker.
* So Seth Killian said there was a character who made his mind melt, and that their inclusion wasn't a surprise, but their implementation was, and they had a problems balancing the character. I'm going to wager a guess that it's [[VideoGame/DeadRising2 Chuck Greene]], and that he's difficult to balance because he makes combo weapons on the go to provide a large variety of possibilities.
* [[http://30ninjas.com/blog/mvc3-ryota-niitsuma-talks-frank-west-deconfirmationdlc Unfortunately, Frank West was confirmed not to be in.]] However, Niitsuma stated that he was very far along in development before being scrapped (to the point of even being in an early, unreleased version of one of the trailers), so it's quite possible that he'll be DLC.
** There's a rumor floating around the net that Frank and Elektra may be released as free DLC. Only time will tell if this is true.
* Dust will be DLC. She shows up in Deadpools ending, But what's intersting is that everyone else in Pool's ending is a playable charecter. So why is she the odd woman out? And she has a unique apperence, and could have an interesting moveset with her powers.
* Tessa from VideoGame/RedEarth, making for her third appearance outside her original 1996 game. Mainly because her appearance would work well in HD, because she'd be the only witch-like character in the game and because she's something of a fan-favorite from that series ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ouVmTU1BXs that]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMBbpsed16k and]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sipLaWsgKyM because]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTszs_lNQRo her]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEpu1IsDDAs gameplay]]-[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDp6CjVpTO8 style]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiAdj7gLz2g looks]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SP2akc5vLDQ really]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQMq9xFFIE0 freakin']] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JiG5GtWFTg fun]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpJtTJl2dcg Really]]).
* Samanosuke Akechi or UsefulNotes/YagyuJubei from the ''VideoGame/{{Onimusha}}'' series. Soki appeared in VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom so there's hope.
* Am I the only one that wants to see [[SpiderMan Venom]] replaced by Anti-Venom? He basically has all of Venom's abilities but with a few new ones as well.

[[WMG: The Bone Claw Wolverine was a Skrull]]
That, or an LMD.

[[WMG:Creator/StanLee and/or [[MemeticMutation Yipes]] will be the announcer(s) for ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3''.]]
It would be the ultimate form of {{Fanservice}}. Imagine the (co-)progenitor of many of Marvel's most recognizable faces actually [[AnnouncerChatter commenting on the ultimate battle]] and [[CatchPhrase shouting out most of his most famous lines]].

"EXCELSIOR!!!" "Face front, true believers!" "'Nuff said!"

Do ''not'' deny it. You ''want'' this to happen.

As for Yipes, '''[[IncomingHam IT'S]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZZUMjoxfZA MAHVEL]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A6ga9Jvdw9U BAYBEE]]!!!''' Of course, his inclusion would jack the rating up to AO ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids at the very least]]'', but the perpetual CrowningMomentOfFunny will be worth it.

Or... they could have a ''dual-audio'' track, allowing you to choose between Stan Lee ''and'' Yipes. Face it; the fandom would probably do a collective squee.
** New footage has reviled that there is more than one announcer in the game. They must be next.

[[WMG: Who will be the Final boss for Marvel vs Capcom 3?]]
* This tropers guess is Sentry/The Void. He could easily make a great 3 stage boss.
* What if the final boss was a Capcom character? [[VideoGame/MegaMan Dr.Wily]] would make a great 3 form boss, with forms taken from random Mega Nan games.
** It was implied that the boss would a Marvel boss. Though it's possible there would be a Marvel boss and a Capcom boss (like ''[[VideoGame/CapcomVsSNKMillenniumFight2000 Capcom vs. SNK]]''.).
** [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters WHAT IF IT'S RUGAL?]] Just kidding.
* Annihilus would also be a great choice.
* Mikaboshi from the Marvel Chaos War story would make a good final boss.
* It would be interesting to see [[VideoGame/MegaManX Sigma]] as the final boss, considering his loathing of organics and fascination for gigantic battle bodies.
** However, it seems Doom and Wesker release some kind of Sealed Evil in a can.
* [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} Yami,]] please! Just to hear Amaterasu snarl like the devil and proceed to go supernova on that fishie.
* [[VideoGame/MonsterHunter White Fatalis]]... Just throwing it out there...

[[WMG:What do you think the story for Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be about?]]
* Call me crazy, but I guess it'll be about the fate of two worlds. Just a guess on my part.
** Ah, but what causes it? Maybe, Sentry becomes The Void and causes both words to meet.
* Going by the recent trailer, it seems like the villains are are united. Maybe it's a new [[LegionOfDoom Lethal Legion]] Made of both Marvel and Capcom villains?
** But there's only (to date) 4 villains on the roster (5 depending on how Deadpool's feeling). [[SarcasmMode That must be some alliance.]] Personally, I'd like to see something like the Dark Phoenix saga, however unlikely it may be.
*** Actually, the above post guessed correctly. It's been revealed that the story does indeed involve a Villain Team up. The story revolves around Doom and Wesker forming a team with villains from both sides. Also, the villain count is now up to six, now that MODOK and Magneto have been confirmed. We will probably get more villains soon.
*** Hopefully some Capcom villains, because so far it seems like Wesker and Doom are just gathering Marvel villains as their underlings or something.
** It's posible that some of the other villains show up in the story.
* I'm just hoping it'll offer some explanation for how [[NeutralEvil Wesker]] can get someone like [[LawfulGood Captain America]] or [[NeutralGood Amaterasu]] to fight alongside him.
** Probably not, since they never bothered before. It doesn't really matter in gameplay anyway.
*** Gameplay and Storyline Segregation.
[[WMG: The reason Spider-Man and Mega Man haven't shown up yet is because they're being saved for the last trailer.]]
They're Marvel and Capcom's most iconic characters, respectively. They're saving the best for last, so to speak.
* Actually, the reason Spider-Man hasn't been revealed yet is because they were waiting until after ''VideoGame/SpiderManShatteredDimensions'' to come out.Now that it's out, he'll probably be revealed soon.
** And Spidey was revealed. But it was with [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Wesker]] and not Mega Man.

[[WMG: There will be a shout-out to Marvel being owned by Creator/{{Disney}}]]
In the form of a very Disney-esque character that was owned by Marvel prior to the sale being made one of the fighters... Howard the Duck!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvzVnD9xexc Here's a Youtube video]] that has all of the characters slots on the selection screen (with the unrevealed characters labeled since there's no stills of them yet), and two of the slot labels are She-Hulk and Zero, who were recently revealed. One of the Marvel slots has Howard the Duck on it, so I'm hoping this one's true!
** That one was jossed though, even then Howard wouldn't be a Shout out to Disney, since he's been in marvel for years and they already said Disney had nothing to do with the game.
*** The "shoutout to Disney" portion is jossed, but I still have high hopes that Howard will be in. Considering some of the other character choices, it's not that far a stretch. Besides, Marvel needs a short character to counter Amaterasu and Viewtiful Joe.

[[WMG: Doom is teaming up with Wesker to save Latveria.]]
For anyone who's played VideoGame/ResidentEvil5, Wesker is a complete NietzscheWannabe who wants to kill off most of the world's population so that the few remaining can become uuber humans. So, why is Doom allying with him? So he can stop Wesker from virus bombing Latveria at a crucial moment! Of course, he might let Wesker first annihilate a few other countries...

[[WMG: Abyss from ''Marvel vs Capcom'' is the one responsible for the crossover/devastation going on in the games.]]
He's the only boss who's an original character.

[[WMG: The game takes place after Phoenix Wright was disbarred.]]
One of She-Hulk's win quotes says she was compared to him and then she called an ambulance. I guess she took it as an insult, given Wright was an impressive lawyer until that incident with the evidence forging, and now he's reduced to hobo in appearance.

[[WMG: Guesses on cameos and shout outs.]]
If they can't get Phoenix Wright as a fighter, at least have him in a cutscene with other lawyer characters like Daredevil and such with She-Hulk.
* She-Hulk quotes Phoenix Wright in one of her victory quotes, saying that someone called her Phoenix Wright with muscles, and that she called an ambulance after that.
** Confirmed on Phoenix Wright. He and Miles Edgeworth are both seen in She-Hulk's ending.
* I'm guessing Daredevil could appear in Ultimate [[ComicBook/CivilWar as an alternate costume for]] [[ComicBook/ImmortalIronFist Iron Fist]].

[[WMG: Keiji Inafune is the reason why Mega Man (Any of them) isn't in [=MvC3=]]]
Notice that none of the Mega Mans are in the final roster but Zero is there. Then WordOfGod said that Zero is supposed to represent the Mega Man in the game. This is Inafune's WriterRevolt upped to eleven, as ''Zero'' was supposed to be Mega Man X before ExecutiveMeddling stepped in and he wanted to make a point.

[[WMG: [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Heimdall]] will appear in a future Capcom game]].
[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDG5eR-o6ho His ending:]] [[spoiler:Thor tells Heimdall, his friend, to look after the world. When Heimdall asked it, Thor means "The other world". This "world" must be Capcom's.]]

[[WMG: Galactus, storywise, is the reason why the Franchise/FantasticFour aren't in this game.]]
As he said: "Much like the Fantastic Four, you are nothing to me." So he must have beaten the four before.

[[WMG: Dormammu will be the BigBad of the next MVC game.]]
That, or he'll be the BigBad of a Capcom game, either StreetFighter, VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}, VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins or Franchise/ResidentEvil. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpTcVod75xY&feature=related His ending:]] [[spoiler:He creates a dimension hole and recruits [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Lord Raptor]], Wesker, Akuma & [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Red Arremer]] to help him conquer the Capcom world.]]

[[WMG: Thor's second alternate costume is supposed to make him look somewhat like {{Superman}}.]]
The two have clashed in the past, and Superman did wield Mjolnir in ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers'', so this could be a subtle ShoutOut.

[[WMG: [[TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] really hates fighting games]]
This would explain why he was perpetually hulked: he's mad about being forced into one. He can't have a beef with any of the Capcom characters or their universe, as he gets mad even during fights in the Marvel universe and roster--even the good guys

[[WMG: ComicBook/SquirrelGirl was purposefully excluded from the series.]]
Her MemeticBadass status would make her too powerful. And the series already has Deadpool for all its fourth-wall breaking needs.

[[WMG: Gene and Daredevil will be added in a future update]]
And a team of Ammy, Joe and Gene will give the "Lucky Clover" achievement/trophy, while a team of She-Hulk, Daredevil and Wright will get the "ArmyOfLawyers" achievement/trophy.

[[WMG: [[ComicBook/BruteForce Doctor Randall Pierce]] will appear as the next UnexpectedCharacter]]
He will be assist character based.

[[WMG: PurposelyOverpowered Characters]]
After the MvC2 tier listing was dominated by Marvel characters, Capcom deliberately made characters like Zero, Morrigan and Wesker super-useful for it would be balanced out again.
