Janina Gavanker, the actor who starred in Star Wars Battlefront 2 as main character Iden Versio, has announced that she is part of the upcoming Marvel game from Skydance New Media and Amy Hennig.
Gavankar shared the news on Twitter, saying, "I can FINALLY TELL YOU THIS! THIS is what I've been so lucky to be a part of. @Skydance + @amy_hennig x @Marvel = #SkydanceNewMedia."
This AAA, story-driven project that Skydance Media and Amy Hennig revealed in 2019 was confirmed to be a Marvel game just last week. While not much is known as to which characters it will focus on, we do know that it is being marketed as a "narrative-driven, blockbuster action-adventure game" and will feature a "completely original story and take on the Marvel Universe."
“I can’t imagine a better partner than Marvel for our first game,” said Hennig. “The Marvel Universe epitomizes all the action, mystery and thrills of the pulp adventure genre that I adore and lends itself perfectly to an interactive experience. It’s an honor to be able to tell an original story with all the humanity, complexity, and humor that makes Marvel characters so enduring and to enable our players to embody these heroes that they love.”
As for Gavanker, she has yet to reveal any details of the role she will be playing, but she is no stranger to the video game world. Besides Star Wars Battlefront 2, she also starred in Far Cry 4 as Amita and Horizon Zero Dawn as Tatai and will lend her voice to Tanta Sila in Forspoken.
Gavanker is a star in not only the video game world, but also in TV and film. Her many credits include Grey's Anatomy, The L Word, The Gates, Arrow, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, The Mysteries of Laura, Blindspotting, and The Morning Show. She is also set to appear in the Borderlands film as Knoxx.
