A set of seven Marvel mobile games are incorporating elements from 2018's blockbuster "Black Panther" and upcoming April 27 release "Avengers: Infinity War." Characters and content from the "Black Panther," "Spider-Man" and "Avengers: Infinity War" movies are being distributed to seven Marvel mobile games over the coming week.

Then, in the days following the "Avengers: Infinity War" world premiere on the 23rd and its general release in US theaters, the septet of Marvel gaming apps are rolling out related material, according to information given to The Hollywood Reporter. "Contest of Champions" rolls out four new events -- a story-based quest, daily quest, solo challenge and co-op quest -- on the 25th, and a Corvus Glaive character on the 26th, who joins the Proxima Midnight character already released; "Infinity War" versions of Captain America and Iron Man join in May.
