Another Batch Of Infinity War Merch Spotlights Iron Man And The Infinity Gauntlet


The countdown to Avengers: Infinity War is on.

By our calculations (thanks, Google), Joe and Anthony Russo’s impossibly huge blockbuster is only 79 days out from release, and as Marvel fans know all too well, we have the imminent launch of Black Panther – not to mention Ragnarok‘s arrival on Blu-ray – to sate our collective appetite for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

And if you’re in the market for some Avengers-themed merchandise, we’ve got you covered. Thanks to an Instagram account called The Geek Power (h/t Reddit), below you’ll see a raft of toys dedicated to the Infinity Gauntlet and Iron Man’s souped-up Model-Prime armor, which is perhaps Tony Stark’s magnum opus.

It’s also armed with two shoulder-mounted cannons, though it’s unclear as yet if they’ll play a part in Avengers: Infinity War. As we’ve mentioned multiple times in the past, attempting to wean plot details from a line of merchandise can be a dangerous game, as toy manufacturers typically render their own models (and scenarios!) without prior knowledge of film’s storyline.

Nevertheless, this is yet more proof that Marvel’s marketing campaign is firing on all cylinders. It’s a hard-wired machine, after all, and Black Panther is living proof that, even as the MCU nears its 10th birthday, Marvel Studios continues to conjure up one box office success after another. With that in mind, surely Avengers: Infinity War will enter the box office pantheon later this year? $2 billion isn’t exactly out of reach, though it would take something truly special to dethrone the long-time king: Avatar.

We’ll begin to form a clearer picture of how Infinity War is performing on May 4th.
