Leaked Toys Reveal Potential Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home Scenes
***Possible spoilers for Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home***
No matter the Fort Knox-levels of secrecy that the major studios undertake to keep their movies under wraps, we often see leaks from a hard-to-control element: the merchandising that’s done in advance and risks sending spoilers out into the world.
Leaked toy sets rarely tell the whole spoiler-y story, and they can be misleading. Tons of movie-specific toys come with additional weapons, objects, and vehicles that have no basis in the actual movie storyline and are added to enhance playtime and collectibility. But often enough, toys, especially detailed Lego sets, can be accurate about setting and major plot beats.
Right around this same time last December, six LEGO Infinity War set descriptions leaked, translated from Russian, and if you look back at the descriptions now, they align almost perfectly with sequences from the film. There was at least one big red herring, however, a “final battle” set that featured Gamora, who in the movie is already dead during the fight with Thanos on Titan. That set also includes Star-Lord on a space bike, which now I kind of want to see?
So keep in mind that information from toys should always be taken with a grain of salt, even if sometimes they can lend us the power of prophecy. The Mary Sue community predicted—correctly—that Heimdall would die in Infinity War because of a toy where Thor was packaged with Heimdall’s famous sword.
Nearly to the day of last year’s leak, an Instagram user has posted translated names and price points for purported Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home LEGO sets. User falconfan1414, whose account appears to have other early toy info, uploaded the following picture:
As BGR breaks down:
While we don’t have many details about the actual sets aside from their titles, prices, and the number of pieces they contain, they’re still kind of spoilery. For example, Captain America: Attack of the Outrider hints at a minor battle — after all the set costs just $20 and has 167 pieces. War Machine Crusher suggests War Machine will have a new suit in the upcoming new Avengers film, while Iron Man Armor Room teases that Tony Stark will have brand new Iron Man suits on display.
The biggest possible spoiler/theory confirmation here would be that nearly 700-piece “Battle of the Assembled Avengers” set. We’ve heard rumors that there will be a fight where all of our heroes are back together and working en masse onscreen; actors have discussed their awe in looking around and seeing so many legendary colleagues surrounding them.
We imagine this means those who were lost to the Snap are also part of this newly re-assembled group. This could all but confirm that the Avengers do succeed in reversing Thanos’ Snap at a point prior to a climactic battle, not as a result of it.
And what about those Spider-Man: Far From Home sets? BGR zeroes in on the apparent Elementals confirmation (the Elementals are a group of superpowered villains who can control natural forces), but it’s another LEGO set translation that caught my eye.
Moving on to Far From Home, we have three Lego set titles in the image above, including Molten Man’s Battle, Hydro-Man’s Attack, and Starks Plane and Drone Attack. The first two seem to suggest that Spider-Man will face the Elementals in the upcoming film, just as the first trailer is supposed to tell us.
“Starks Plane and Drone Attack.” Is something Stark under attack? Is something Stark attacking? Could this indicate that Tony Stark is alive and part of the next chapter of Peter Parker’s story? If so, that would be huge, and quite the spoiler, since I was putting his chance of surviving Endgame at about 50%. Of course, this could also just mean that Peter is messing around with some Stark tech, or that Peter’s still involved with the Stark estate somehow. As much as I love Peter, for the sake of Tony and Pepper and maybe their child, I hope Peter’s not the primary beneficiary in that sort of situation.
Endgame is set to end us all on April 26th, and yeah, we know Spider-Man makes his way back, because Spider-Man: Far From Home is slated for July 5th. We’ll be playing in this sandbox of speculation until then.
