While the trailer highlights Magneto and features a number of the X-Men, as the trailer ends it hints that they might only be available in DLC beginning in the Fall of 2019. Along with the X-Men, they promise Marvel Knights characters as well as the Fantastic Four. Given they are prompting gamers to purchase an expansion pass, one can only assume the DLC will not be free, but will require a purchase.
Voice actor Todd Haberkorn announced he would be giving voice to Ebony Maw in the game.
For the service of Thanos…#HaberEbonyMaw

The game is the third in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series. The first was published in 2006 with the second dropping in 2009. The first game saw Doctor Doom as the primary villain. The Avengers and the rest of the heroes of the Marvel Universe have to travel across the galaxy taking on foes such as Deathbird, Galactus, Enchantress, Loki, and others in order to stop Doctor Doom.
The second game loosely adopted the Marvel Comics’ Civil War story arc and allows players to choose between Pro-Registration and Anti-Registration.
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will arrive on the Nintendo Switch on July 19, 2019.
