Another day, another Reddit dump of spoilers for Avengers: Endgame. And this time, these spoilers have been online since December. They’re only picking up credibility now after accurately predicting a few things from that spoiler-filled leaked footage. You dizzy yet?
On Tuesday, Reddit user u/TheStarAvenger shared in the Reddit forum r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers a Twitter profile, named Roger Wardell (@RogerWardell), whose only 11 tweets from December 2018 are nothing but spoilers of Avengers: Endgame, then known as just Avengers 4.
While Roger’s tweets don’t contain the title Avengers: Endgame anywhere (which was officially unveiled just a few days later in December 2018), they did “predict” a few things that fans would eventually come to learn earlier this week.
Note: We are spoiler-free for this entire article, except for things @RogerWardell tweeted which we A.) only provide context for and B.) remain skeptical. You can read and still be mostly spoiler-free before Avengers: Endgame on April 26. You’ll just have a lot more insight than your friends do.
Roger’s first tweet, dated December 3, 2018, does indeed contain a detail about Thor that the other, most recent leak confirmed. Thus begins Roger’s tweets, which stop on December 5. These tweets still may or may not be true, but Roger’s description of Thor lends them some credibility.
Here are seven other details that we think are vague enough to share, but click on the links below at your own peril.
7. The Real Jarvis Returns
Roger’s second tweet points to Avengers: Endgame having “the very FIRST character switching from TV to film,” which he says will be Edwin Jarvis, the English butler of Howard Stark from the Marvel series Agent Carter. The character is said to be reprised by actor James D’Arcy.
6. Hail Hydra
Roger’s next two tweets point to the return of Hydra, the supernatural Nazi organization and sworn enemy of Captain America. Roger says legendary actor Robert Redford returns as Alexander Pierce, who appeared in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier and shares scenes with a few Avengers. The context of his alleged return is unknown.
Roger also hints at a big allusion to the controversial 2017 Marvel storyline Secret Empire, which saw Captain America reveal himself to be a double agent for Hydra. Roger says Chris Evans plays “a completely different Steve Rogers.” He ends the tweet with “HAIL HYDRA!”
5. Power Pack and Ms. Marvel
Not specific to Avengers: Endgame, but Roger tweeted that Marvel Studios figurehead Kevin Feige “has talked about films” based on Power Pack (a children’s-oriented team of superheroes) and Ms. Marvel, a teenager named Kamala Khan who takes up Carol Danvers’ old mantle. At the same time, Roger says these are being explored as new shows for Disney+.
During the press tour for Captain Marvel, Brie Larson said she hopes to have Ms. Marvel appear in a sequel.
4. How It All Ends
The ending of Avengers: Endgame is said to be a direct reference to the ending of Avengers: Infinity War. Sorry, but even this one sounds like a major spoiler to me. If you really want to know, you can see the tweet here.
3. Relive The Winter Soldier
Roger tweeted that two other characters from Captain America: The Winter Soldier return and actually recreate a popular scene from that movie. “But there’s a MAJOR difference in this one,” says Roger. Between this and Alexander Pierce, there is a serious connection to the Captain America sequel, which was the first Marvel film that Endgame directors the Russo Brothers did for Marvel.
2. Stan Lee’s Cameo
Yes, Stan Lee has a cameo, which Marvel itself has confirmed. Roger tweeted on December 5 that Stan Lee’s cameo takes place at a vintage auto show.
1. Introducing: The Thunderbolts
Roger says a handful of villains from previous films, including Zemo (Captain America: Civil War), Ghost (Ant-Man and The Wasp), Justin Hammer (Iron Man 2), General Ross and the Abomination (The Incredible Hulk), have “big plans” in store. There is also maybe a Thunderbolts movie in the works, referring to the Marvel superhero team composed of reformed villains.
