'Avengers: Endgame' Spoiler: Toy Leaks May Show a Final Battle With Thanos
There’s still a lot we don’t know about Avengers: Endgame, but a new Lego toy leak may have revealed two key scenes from the upcoming movie, including an epic fight between Thanos and the Avengers. That battle appears to take place on the Avengers’ home turf, suggesting Thanos won’t just be on the defensive in Endgame, and a second leak offers new clues about Tony Stark’s story in what could be his final Marvel movie.
Before we go any further, it’s worth noting that leaked Lego and other toys don’t necessarily reflect the official plot. Most of the time, these companies base their designs off limited details or just guess entirely. That said, it’s possible these could be Avengers: Endgame spoilers. Consider yourself warned.
Inverse is posing a few theories of its own with Inverse String Theory ahead of the premiere of Avengers: Endgame.
Redditor u/SpiderJaz posted photos of both Lego box sets on Monday. The first Lego leak sets the location of the fight with Thanos at the Avengers compound. The characters included in this set are Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Hulk, and Ant-Man (most of which also showed up in another toy leak hinting at time travel in Avengers: Endgame).
There’s a lot going on in this picture. Hulk is back, and Captain Marvel has joined up with the rest of the Avengers. Iron Man clearly made it back to Earth as well, and we also see Nebula piloting a helicopter above. The strangest detail is Thanos’ new hammer, which we’ve never seen before and seems like an odd choice of weapon for one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Either this is a big spoiler and Thanos needed a new weapon after breaking the Infinity Gauntlet at the end of Infinity War, or Lego is just having fun.
In the second Lego box set, Tony Stark’s Hall of Armor and a variety of Iron Man suits take center stage. His loyal automaton, Dum-E, who had appeared in another Lego box set, is there as well. Multiple versions of Iron Man’s suits are included, along with a couple of Outriders lurking in the background.
It’s unclear what their presence might mean since we’ve only seen these monsters before at the Battle of Wakanda. It’s possible Thanos could use them again in his attempt to stop the Avengers during Endgame.
It seems fitting to also include this recent Funko Pop leak, which appears to confirm other rumors about which heroes will return and their new Quantum Realm super suits. An image on the side of a Funko box shows the original Avengers, along with Thanos, Ant-Man, Nebula, War Machine, and Captain Marvel. The picture is blurry, but Tony is definitely wearing a new suit of armor. The rest of the characters’ suits are a bit harder to make out, but the design of Ant-Man and Hulk’s suits look similar to that of Iron Man’s.
There’s no telling exactly when the Avengers will wear their new suits, at what point in the film the fight with Thanos will take place, or whether any of these leaked toys are accurate. One thing is for sure, though. Avengers: Endgame will pull out all the stops to give fans a satisfying conclusion to the last 10 years of Marvel movies.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters April 26, 2019.
