the videos below were recorded at a Disney press event that i attended with my 2 sons
Marvel Battlegrounds is an arcade-style brawler that allows players to battle with up to three friends locally. Fans will be able to play in 12 levels across eight all-new arenas, including Knowhere and Wakanda. Players will also be able to battle as any playable Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition): Marvel Super Heroes figure, making Marvel Battlegrounds the Play Set with the largest selection of playable characters.
within Marvel Battlegrounds the arena location choices are: Brooklyn Train Yard, S.H.I.E.L.D. Lunar Outpost, Ultimate Ultron, Wakandan Mines, Manhattan Sewers, Middle of Knowhere, Avengers Training Facility and Mount Asgard
nb: unfortunately no Ant Man gameplay was permitted

to answer some questions ...
battlegrounds = story campaign mode
super hero = 1 player becomes "it" the super hero and the other players all attack that player. if another player defeats "it" they then become the super hero
hero af the hill = get inside the moving circle and keep other players out. whoever controls the circle longest wins. this can be done in teams or individually
rumble = every player for themselves and whoever scores most wins
custom = customise the settings of the different modes including health levels of characters, length of time rounds last, difficulty
only some of the arenas have a breakable floor that gives access to another level below. there are no more than 2 levels in any arena
figures and power discs need to be scanned in at each gaming session that the play set is used
each week a new digital trial version character from one of the figures that are available physically will be available (try before you buy sort of thing)
