Marvel Vs. Capcom 3's Bombastic Trailer Reveals 16 CharactersS

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 is official, with at least 30 characters and a 2011 release date for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, Capcom confirmed last week.

While only six of the game's characters are shown in this short, almost entirely gameplay-free trailer, many others are hinted at.

What we know for sure is that Wolverine, the Hulk, Iron Man, Street Fighter's Ryu, Darkstalker's Morrigan and Resident Evil's Chris Redfield will be in the game.

Judging by the art used to unveil the game and this video, here's who else we think will be in the game:

Captain America, Super Skrull, Chun-Li, Deadpool, Felicia, Dante, Frank West, Mephisto Dormammu, Trish (from Devil May Cry) and Doctor Doom all appear to show up as silhouettes in the promotional material.

Did you catch any others?

I'd also love to hear your thoughts on settings for the fights and, more interesting perhaps, what sort of fiction the two teams will be weaving to explain the battle royale that kicks the game off.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.
