Just like the movie, Michael Peña’s Luis completely steals the show in the currently PlayStation exclusive LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Ant-Man downloadable content.
Normally I drop the gameplay audio level to barely audible when doing a Kotaku Plays video with commentary, but that went out the window the moment I realized Michael Peña was going to be narrating the whole thing. He brightens what would otherwise have been a pretty standard adventure with an anti-climactic finish. The final showdown between Yellowjacket and Ant-Man is a series of button presses, but who cares? We’ve got this guy on our team now.
Outside of the Ant-Man adventure Luis is a security guard with a gun, S.H.I.E.L.D. clearance and some excellent lines. With his best friend Ant-thony by his side there is nothing he can’t accomplish.
Other notable minifigures included in the DLC are Cassie Lang in her pre-hero form, wielding that horrible rabbit Scott gives her in the movie . . .
. . . and Janet Van Dyne as the Wasp, who shrinks when she flies, as she should.
The Luis DLC for LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is now available for free to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 players. No word on when it will come to other platforms, but it probably will.
