'Avengers: Infinity War' Is Getting a Daredevil Cameo ... in Lego Form

In the lengthy lead-up to Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel fans have been piecing clues together with the skill of a Lego master builder, especially when it comes to figuring out if any of Netflix’s Defenders will make cameos. Well, it’s looking like Daredevil and the gang will be MIA in the actual movie, but at least Lego has your back. Leaked images of the toy companies upcoming Infinity War sets include a sneaky Daredevil cameo, although the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen doesn’t quite get his own minifigure.

One of the bigger sets appears to be Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum at 177A Bleecker in New York City. An Instagram user who saw the leaked images noted that there was something familiar on the Lego brick sidewalk. There’s a newspaper box for the New York Bulletin, the paper where Karen Page works in Daredevil and The Punisher. The headline, in all-caps, reads “CRIME FLOODS THE STREETS,” and there’s a little illustration of what looks like Daredevil in Lego form.

Daredevil in 'LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.'

It’s a cute little nod, and it opens up the possibility that we might see actual Defenders Easter eggs in Infinity War, even if actual appearances by the actors behind Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist have been pretty soundly ruled out. Might Peter Parker briefly consider trying to sell some photos to the New York Bulletin rather than the Daily Bugel before Thanos’s invasion occurs? It would be fun, but at the very least, at least Lego can play with all the building blocks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters in the United States on May 4, 2018. Netflix’s Daredevil Season 3 is expected to premiere in 2018, though the streaming service hasn’t shared an exact date yet.

'Avengers: Endgame' Theory Claims Collecting Infinity Stones Is Unnecessary

Avengers: Endgame theories have been focused on which Infinity Stones might be needed to defeat Thanos, but what if the answer is none of them? An intriguing new theory offers a clever alternative, and injects a time travel subplot into Avengers: Infinity War at the same time.

Redditor u/webdevnoobs1 recently broke down the theory, which hinges on the idea that the Avengers could travel back in time and drain the Infinity Stones of their power without actually taking the stones themselves.

'The Umbrella Academy' Season 2 Release Date, Trailer, Plot, and More

The superheroes of The Umbrella Academy have work to do to save the world.

A new group of superheroes just arrived on Netflix in The Umbrella Academy, and maybe you decided to use the holiday weekend to binge all 10 episodes of Season 1. If you did, you’re probably wondering when you’ll get to see Umbrella Academy Season 2 and the resolution to that insane cliffhanger.

Kylo Ren’s New Helmet in ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Might Be a Secret Twist

Everyone assumes Kylo will don his old helmet again, but there could be something much more interesting happening.

Helmets are a big deal in Star Wars. They surround the heads of popular characters, penetrate our psyches, and bind the merchandising galaxy of Lucasfilm together. In some ways, the entire popularity of Star Wars is connected to sweet-looking helmets. Which is why the rumored return of Kylo Ren’s old helmet in Star Wars: Episode IX is such a big deal. In The Force Awakens, Kylo rocked a Darth Vader knock-off helmet, but after getting teased about it by Snoke in The Last Jedi, he broke the thing into little pieces. Now, in leaked photos, it looks like Kylo’s helmet is back for Episode IX, but what if there’s a twist here? What if the helmet is back, but Kylo Ren isn’t wearing it?

Speculation that Adam Warlock could appear in Avengers: Endgame cropped up this week, but this isn’t the first we’ve heard of Marvel’s plans for a movie version of the comic book character. Eight hundred years ago Last year, former Guardians of the Galaxy series director James Gunn teased what Adam Warlock’s role would look like in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Prior to his forced exit from the franchise, Gunn had a plan for the cosmic superhero that went beyond Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
