LEGO confirmed today that the Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War DLC for LEGO Marvel’s Avengers will be released as timed exclusives for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Oh, and they’ll be free! Yay!

The Civil War DLC will be available when LEGO Marvel’s Avengers comes out on January 26. For those savvy readers who have noticed that that’s months before Civil War will actually hit theaters, don’t fret about spoilers. The Civil War DLC is a character pack and contains these 9 heroes:

  • Agent 13
  • Black Panther
  • Captain America
  • Crossbones
  • Falcon
  • Iron Man (MK 46)
  • Scarlet Witch
  • War Machine
  • Winter Soldier

Still, that’s pretty exciting. It gives us an idea of how prominent some of these characters who haven’t appeared in the films yet will be. In The Winter Soldier we got set-up for Crossbones, for example, but he didn’t appear by that name.

The Ant-Man DLC comes out in spring, and includes a playable level based on last year’s Ant-Man film.

Here are the nine “Ant-Man” characters you get with the DLC:

  • Ant-Man (Scott Lang)
  • Yellowjacket
  • Hope Van Dyne
  • Hank Pym
  • Cassie Lang
  • Scott Lang
  • Darren Cross
  • Luis
  • Ant-Man (Hank Pym)
  • The Wasp (Janet Van Dyne)
  • Ant-Thony (Flying Ant)

Presumably after Civil War comes out, we’ll be getting a level based on that film, too. But I think it’s safe to say it’ll be sold separately.

LEGO Marvel’s Avengers itself mashes up storylines and levels from 8 Marvel films, as well TV shows and comics–including characters from the very adult Daredevil and Jessica Jones Netflix exclusives.

All told there will be over 100 Marvel characters in the game. Including Stan Lee. LEGO Marvel’s Avengers comes out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PC.
