According to recent rumors, FIFA 23 could stage a very peculiar crossover for a title of this type. In fact, a leaked image from EA suggests that FIFA 23 could feature a crossover with the Marvel world. The crossover should be named FUT Heroes and a web page reveals the following:
Bring football fan favorites back to the pitch in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team as FUT Heroes, with special items that represent the memorable moments in their careers that have made them cult legends.
The three players who are currently expected to be part of the crossover should be Ricardo Carvalho, Park Ji-Sung and Yaya Touré. It’s not entirely clear how this will relate to Marvel, but it seems unlikely that Captain America, Iron Man and all the other characters from the Marvel world will be playable. It is more likely, however, that some will be made available Marvel themed items that players will be able to equip, as well as some special events.
