Disney has unveiled Stitch (of Lilo & Stitch) and Tinkerbell (of Peter Pan) for Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition, while also saying that it hasn't ruled out the possibility of including Marvel's new female Thor in the future. Stitch and Tink will have their own unique abilities, and will only be available for Disney Infinity 2.0's Toy Box. As for female Thor, she could be coming to Disney Infinity 2.0 as the game "evolves over time".
Marvel revealed that Thor will now be a female character earlier in the week, witht he first issues planned for October. "No longer is the classic Thunder God able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, and a brand new female hero will emerge worthy of the name Thor," said Marvel
"This is not She-Thor," series writer Jason Aaron said in a statement. "This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is Thor. This is the Thor of the Marvel Universe. But it's unlike any Thor we've ever seen before."
Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition's representation of Thor remains faithful to the Avengers Assemble animated series for now, so he'll be the original male version for the time being. However, the new female Thor could be added to Disney Infinity 2.0 at a later date according to Executive Producer John Vignocchi.
"The Thor that we have inside of Infinity is based on the animated series Avengers Assemble," Vignocchi said. "Infinity being a platform that evolves over time, that certainly doesn't rule out the possibility of creating a new version of Thor. Should there be a demand, we'd love to do that."
Vignocchi added that 45% of Disney Infinity players are female and that the game has numerous strong female characters, including Black Widow, Tinkerbell, Maleficent and Merida.
Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition is coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Wii U in autumn 2014. Get our Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition preview here.
