Earlier this month, an Avengers: Endgame LEGO leak hit the web and teased such potentially revealing toys as a new Quinjet and a giant, Hulkbuster-style suit for War Machine. But if you looked a little closer, you probably would’ve noticed another significant detail in the villains that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes were squaring off against.
Yes, as you’ve surely heard by now, the images seemingly confirmed the legitimacy of an older leak which showed the LEGO design for the Chitauri. Though these extra-terrestrial figures have appeared a few times across the MCU, by far their biggest moment in the spotlight was 2012’s The Avengers, in which they fought the titular heroes in the Battle of New York.
And while there’s no guarantee that the creatures will make it into Avengers: Endgame, we now have yet another LEGO set which depicts them fighting our heroes. Seen in the gallery below is a battle involving the Chitauri and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye-slash-Ronin (Jeremy Renner) and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper). There’s not much else we can take away from the pic, but at this point, we’d say it’s highly likely we’ll be seeing the aforementioned villains in the Infinity War sequel.

In fact, they’ll likely show up when our heroes travel back to the past and specifically, the Battle of New York. We’ve yet to find out what the significance of Endgame’s New York scenes will be, but it’s widely believed that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will be traveling back in time to somehow prevent Thanos’ Snap of Doom from happening, which wiped out half of all life from the universe.
As for how exactly this journey into the past might happen, that’s also a bit unclear, but we’ve no doubt the fans will continue to spin their theories until all is revealed when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
