For years, Marvel fans have eagerly awaited the arrival of the X-Men in the MCU. Well, it seems like LEGO is finally giving them what they've wanted.
Debuting this week on Disney+ is LEGO Marvel Avengers: Code Red, a brand-new original special featuring Earth's Mightiest in brick form on a mission to save the day. They're facing off against The Collector who is looking to add to the Avengers to his impressive collection.
With the odds stacked against them, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor and Hulk seek out the help of none other than Wolverine.
LEGO Marvel Avengers: Code Red is set to debut this week on Friday, October 27th. Below is the first trailer for the upcoming special.
The official synopsis reads:
"The Avengers gather to celebrate their latest victory, but their celebration is quickly interrupted by the mysterious disappearance of Black Widow’s father, Red Guardian. As the Avengers investigate, they discover that Red Guardian isn’t the only one missing when they meet a dangerous new foe quite unlike anything they’ve ever encountered before."
In typical LEGO Marvel fashion, Code Red features a mix of Marvel's action and LEGO's signature humor. From Thor's outfit changes to the Wolverine-Hulk banter, this looks like another fun special that will be enjoyable for both adults and kids.
Although LEGO Marvel Avengers: Code Red gives us our first taste of Wolverine teaming up with the Avengers it won't be long before we see the character enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe on the big screen. Marvel's Deadpool 3 will see Wolverine team up with the Merc with a Mouth in what will be the fan-favorite mutant's introduction into the MCU. It's a team-up that many fans weren't sure we'd ever see -- especially after Hugh Jackman stepped away from the role of Wolverine following 2017's Logan.
While we're used to seeing Hugh Jackman play the role in live-action form, the Wolverine in LEGO Marvel Avengers: Code Red will be voiced by Steve Blum. He joins a cast that includes Laura Bailey, Trevor Devall, Will Friedle, James Mathis III, Liam O'Brien, Laura Post, Bumper Robinson, Roger Craig Smith, Fred Tatasciore, Travis Willingham, and Mick Wingert.
