Begin the fight! The Marvel and Capcom universes collide as heroes and villains battle together to save their merged worlds from a sinister new threat, Ultron Sigma. A combination of the robotic foes known as Ultron from the Marvel Universe and Sigma from the Capcom Universe, this psychotic villain is obsessed with infecting all organic life with a cybernetic virus.

Capcom also confirmed eight new fighters for Infinite:

Marvel

Judging by the newly confirmed characters, the previous roster leak is real.
