A new MultiVersus leak has possibly revealed some interesting additions to the roster.
Warner Bros' platform fighting game was first leaked back in October 2021, leading to Juan "Hungrybox" DeBiedma showing it off on stream and Twitter. Since then, the game has been jokingly referred to as the "Smash killer," getting mixed reviews from prominent Smash players. While it's seen as a bit chaotic and floaty, there is no denying the hype around the all-stars roster from Finn and Jake to Iron Giant.
Now, as the alpha tests continue, leakers have discovered that even more exciting characters may be coming to the already stacked roster. A trusted leaker known as hugeleakeractually — who originally leaked the game all those months ago — has dug through the game to datamine some exciting new characters in the works. This includes Rick and Morty, The Joker, Raven, Gizmo, Marvin the Martian, the Wicked Witch from Wizard of Oz, and Godzilla. Fred Flinstone and Johnny Bravo, who hugeleakeractually shared in their initial game leak in October, are still coming as well.
But that's not all.
Apparently, Mad Max and Harry Potter are coming to MultiVersus. Unfortunately, these popular characters are on hold due to a possible "IP-related issue." Meanwhile, developers are working on Samurai Jack, the Powerful Girls (who will all be one fighter), Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, Ben 10, the Animaniacs ("also all one fighter as far as I'm aware"), and Ted Lasso.
This last one left many people perplexed. While Ted Lasso is owned by Warner Bros, it did seem a bit shocking to see a character from a live-action comedy-sports drama. But many are inclined to believe the leaker due to their successful track record with MultiVersus so far.
"JOHNNY STILL COMING, BRAVO FANS RISE UP," one fan responded.
A second fan added: "I'm over the fucking moon about Godzilla being in. I cannot fucking wait to get my hands on him! Lots of potential for cool alts for him as well with his Legendary design being an obvious one, Burning Godzilla... And if WB and Toho can work out a deal, you can have an even wider range of designs from the classic Godzilla and everything else from there."
Another asked about Gandalf from Lord of the Rings. hugeleakeractually responded that Gandalf has been "done for a while." This would make sense since there have been three Lord of the Rings-themed stages found in the game's files already.
Unfortunately there's no further information on these characters, including when they will officially join the roster — if they do. For now, these are just speculations, as trustworthy as the leaker has been. None of the characters are confirmed, but it wouldn't be surprising to see at least some of these characters join the roster in the near future.
