Galactus and Taskmaster Rumored to be in Marvel vs Capcom 3

One of the most anticipated games coming in 2011, Capcom’s Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is aiming to become one of the most popular fighting games to land on consoles in recent history. Considering how ridiculously popular the second installment in the franchise is, there’s no doubt that as long as the developers can retain a fraction of the playability and fun, along with the character selection from both Marvel and Capcom’s ranks, the new title will be just as adored. Two new characters may be waiting in the wings, as a recent portfolio from artist Kevin Sharpe showcases both Galactus and Taskmaster in comic book form, and rumors have popped up that the two characters could land in the game as well.

Capcom, though, hasn’t come forward and announced any kind of tie-in, prequel comic, but that doesn’t mean one doesn’t exist. There’s still several weeks between now and the release of the title, which is scheduled to be February 15th, 2011, so an announcement regarding the comic could come any day now. It’s already been leaked that Taskmaster could make his way to the game, and it would be conceivable that Galactus, the planet eater, would be installed in the game as a boss fight.

Unfortunately, Sharpe’s collected images have been removed from his site, but thanks to Shoryukenyou can still see them in all of their glory.
