They haven’t made their big screen debut yet, but Disney is banking on Big Hero 6 stars Hiro Hamada and Baymax to be popular enough that people will want to play as them in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes.
And why wouldn’t they? Hiro’s a smart kid with Microbots, and Baymax is a robot who eventually gets a pretty cool battlesuit-looking thing. He’s also quite funny, which you already know if you’ve seen any of the Big Hero 6 trailers, and he’s got a rocket fist, super strength and thrusters. Hiro can even ride around on Baymax since flight is one of the new character mechanics that the Marvel heroes are bringing to the table.
They certainly seem like they’d be a lot of fun to play with in Toy Box mode, which is what you’ll see in the new trailer below. Both characters will be sold separately when they release sometime this fall, but something tells me that if their movie goes over big, maybe a Play Set won’t be completely out of the question.
