Janina Gavankar had played the star of DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront II, and though fans are still waiting for her Iden Versio to make her live-action debut, it looks like Gavankar will be working with Marvel with their upcoming game.
On her Twitter, Gavankar has confirmed that she is working on the Marvel title coming from Skydance New Media and Amy Hennig. Here’s the post:
I can FINALLY TELL YOU THIS!
THIS is what I’ve been so lucky to be a part of. @Skydance + @amy_hennig x @Marvel = #SkydanceNewMedia

While Skydance’s gaming division may be relatively new, it’s Hennig’s involvement that has fans tickled about the upcoming Marvel game. Hennig is best known for her work as the creative director of the Uncharted games, and seeing as how cinematic and spectacular Nathan Drake’s adventures turned out, we should expect no less from a game based on the most successful movie franchise of all time.
Hennig had this to say when the game was announced:
“The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience. It’s an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.”
We don’t know who Gavankar could play in the game, but she could be anyone from a new character to an established hero. Seeing as she made a fine protagonist with Iden in Battlefront II, I’m hoping that she actually shines in a narrative-driven story with Hennig at the helm.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
No release date has been set for Skydance’s Marvel game, but hopefully we get the big reveal sometime in 2022. In the meantime, you can catch Gavankar in Star Wars Battlefront II, now available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
