We are, at the time of writing, little over a month away from the global release of Avengers: Endgame.
Yes, it’s more than 300 days since the credits rolled on Infinity War, and the gut-wrenching effects of The Snap – or The Decimation, if we’re using the correct term – began to take hold. Thanos had won. And his victory had left the remaining members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in a state of mourning.
That was very much the tone of Endgame‘s initial teasers, which featured a visibly distressed Captain America seeking comfort in a support group. But last week’s trailer brought with it a sliver of hope. Maybe – just maybe – the original six will be able to wipe the smile from Thanos’ face when all is said and done.
Crucial to that counter-attack are Thor, Rocket, and the MCU’s two Captains: Steve Rogers and Carol Danvers, who are all featured in this newly-uncovered merch for Avengers: Endgame.
First spotted on Twitter, this merchandise isn’t exactly a 1:1 recreation of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes – Carol’s face is particularly… strange – but it still brings us that little bit closer to the remaining Avengers and their ice-white armor.
Assuming the Endgame money shot makes its way into the final cut, and the Russo Brothers aren’t pulling a fast one on us, we know the likes of Iron Man, Nebula, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, War Machine, Ant-Man, and Rocket Raccoon will all suit up, strongly indicating that their mission will involve the Quantum Realm in some capacity. It’s the Marvel netherworld in which all concepts of time and space become irrelevant, so it may well offer a loophole (read: time vortex) that’ll help the Avengers regain the upper hand once more.
Avengers: Endgame opens big on April 26th.
