Fans are not happy that the Avengers in the new game trailer look nothing like the movie cast

That's not Scarlett Johansson....

Earlier this week at E3, Square Enix revealed the trailer for their big new Avengers game.

Much like Spider-Man on the PlayStation 4 from last year, many Marvel fans hope that this will be the big triple-A game that brings their comic book heroes to life.

And the trailer does look pretty cool - the main Avengers from the movies are all there (apart from Hawkeye, for some reason), in a big action scene.

And there's an interesting story set-up, with the Avengers disbanding, and having to reform to face a new threat. Seems like a pretty solid basis for a big, mainstream modern video game.

But did something seem rather, well, off to you?

That's because they don't have the images rights to the film actors - so they don't look like Scarlett Johnasson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr, etc.

This isn't a spin-off or tie-in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe - instead, it is own stand-alone game.

Just like Peter Parker didn't look like Tom Holland in the game, or Bruce Wayne didn't look like Ben Affleck or any of the rest of the Batmen in the Arkham games.

Despite that, it has irked many fans.

Marvel's Avengers is released on 15 May 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia.
