Avengers: Endgame is landing in UK cinemas on April 26, and we can’t wait to don our best superhero capes and go to see it (even if we’re secretly still not over the ending of Infinity War).

But we reckon we can handle waiting these last few weeks, because there are a whole pile of amazing Marvel games to play in preparation for the new movie. We can’t pick a favourite game, so here’s the full list…

If you’re not up to date on the Avengers movies, beware of possible spoilers ahead!

1. The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

If you want to get rid of all the pent-up stress caused by the end of Infinity War, then this Hulk game is a real treasure. As the name suggests, almost everything is destructible, so don’t hold back. It’s a lot of fun.

2. LEGO Marvel’s Avengers

On the assumption that you haven’t already memorised every word of each Avengers movie script, this quirky LEGO game is a great recap of the events that led up to Infinity War. Also, with an impressive roster of superheroes to unlock and all their Marvel-lous powers to experiment with, it’s an absolute blast to play.

3. Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Great Telltale storytelling, even greater music, Groot, and hilarious shenanigans from the Guardians are what make this game a real gem. If you’re feeling blue after Infinity War, this one’s sure to cheer you up – though it’s got its fair share of tricky decisions to make too.

4. Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2

Pick a side: will you support Tony Stark or Captain America? Build your dream team of Marvel heroes and villains, then battle your opponents with a thrilling mixture of individual superhero powers and punishing combo attacks.

5. Marvel’s Spider-Man

While this version of Spider-Man may be a little older and wiser (possibly) than his current movie counterpart, this game really lets you step into the everyday pros and cons of being everyone’s favourite friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man. Web-swinging between buildings has never been so much fun.

6. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

This epic LEGO adventure sees characters from the entire timeline of the Marvel universe teaming up to fight time-travelling villain Kang the Conqueror. Expect thrilling battles, quirky minigames, and a healthy helping of slightly silly LEGO humour. Oh, and a teeny tiny baby Groot.
