Marik Ishtar is a character that's suspected to be coming soon. There are several files found in the game showing a character selection icon, and a player profile icon. Similar to Yugi Muto, he has an alter ego called Yami Marik. His Yami version is more likely to be an unlockable character to avoid having 2 of the same character. Marik Ishtar might make an appearance through a mini event just like the Yugi Muto event.
Based on the anime, Marik Ishtar takes control of other people and use their decks to duel and does not duel himself, unless he is in his Yami Marik form. If he were to appear, he could be bringing other gravekeeper monsters like Gravekeeper's Descendant, similar to Ishizu and Odion's duel rewards.
Aww! Thanks so much! These are so You remind of a couple of other Marik fangirls I know. We all like to write fanfiction about him, and we all duel on here too, sometimes. But I'm the only one who can't do fanart to save my life XD :)

Once normal Marik becomes unlockable, it would be so cute if he had a little family reunion scene with Ishizu and Odion. Then, the Ishtar family would finally be together in Duel Links.
I know, but I am also wondering if Konami has something against Marik (sometimes even Yami, with how few events he had and how long it is taking to get him to the gate). Don't know if it is because they are afraid of releasing more gravekeeper support, but this is ridiculous. I want Marik, and I have friends who even started a duel room for him!
