So long as Marvel Studios are refusing to deliver the details on next year’s Avengers 4, fans continue to rely on leaked merchandise art for intel.
This newly surfaced image shows figurine designs for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and friends, and you can bet that this is going to be jumped on as evidence for a theory or two. Granted, it’s a pretty blurry photo, but that blue figure standing next to Iron Man is already being identified by some fans as a sign of Pepper Potts’ long-rumored debut under the Rescue persona. Meanwhile, on the bottom left, you can see Thanos back in his armor and sporting what could well be the new sword-like weapon we’ve seen in previous pics.
We can also once more observe Thor and Rocket in their fancy new outfits. Earlier this month, we got a much better look at the pair’s silver suits in another piece of leaked promo art, prompting predictions of journeys into space, or even the Quantum Realm.

The accompanying text for this pic also seemed potentially telling, with its suggestion of “new foes” and “an even greater threat.” Seeing how the main villain of Avengers: Infinity War was a genocidal tyrant who could turn half the universe’s population into dust with the snap of his fingers, it’s hard to see what could qualify as a bigger danger, but time will tell.
As for Iron Man, this latest image seems to offer nothing visibly new, but some recent concept art suggested a mysterious new suit for Tony Stark that’s drawing a range of interpretations, most of which suggest an outfit that’s notably different from the ordinary red armor we’re seeing here.
We’ll find out how the many inhabitants of the Marvel Studios toy box will be coming together to see off the MCU’s Phase 3 when Avengers 4 comes out on May 3rd, 2019.
