A price and release date has yet to be announced but this follows the recent release of the Fantasy Texture Pack. Skin packs are typically priced at $1.99 though it is unclear if the Marvel license will add any sort of premium mark up. Images of the new skin set have not been shared yet either but this article will be updated when they are released.

The just released Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition is also supposed to receive texture and skin packs and received its first yesterday alongside the game's release on that console. However, it is unclear if this partnership between Microsoft, Mojang and Marvel makes the Avengers Skin Pack exclusive to the Xbox 360.
