We’ve been at the center of an Avengers deluge the last few days thanks to the exclusive coverage by our friends at Empire Magazine. Well, during their time covering the superhero epic, they were privy to a ton of awesome tie-ins. Among them were the newest Avengers themed LEGO sets, which actually revealed a few spoilers from the film.
Written below is a full description from the Empire’s reporter Helen O’Hara, so look away if you don’t want to spoil the movie for yourself! I’m serious! We’ve played this daring, spoiler tango too many times! Look Away!
Alright, now that you’ve thoroughly ignored my warning, take a look at these potential Avengers spoilers and let us know what you think:
The first, ‘Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape’, has the Norse god clutching his cosmic cube on the back of a S.H.I.E.L.D. pick-up. No surprise there: it features in the Captain America post-credits clip. Except that behind the wheel is Hawkeye, helping the impish diety escape. If we’re not putting two and two together and making 167, it looks like Loki is exercising mind control over the bowman.That’s possibly borne out in ‘Hulk Helicarrier Breakout’, a scene that presumably precedes the cube escape. While his staff is being evaluated in Bruce Banner’s lab, Loki is imprisoned in a glass cell. Here’s where it gets mysterious: the kit features flickable barrels for Hulk to launch across the flight deck and stymie a rescue attempt.
Is it Hawkeye’s S.H.I.E.L.D. jet, which we spotted nearby with a mini-Jeremy Renner in the cockpit, that he’ll be trying to stop? Could this be a Tinker, Tailor man-on-the-inside scenario?
The final kits – ‘Quinjet Aerial Battle’, featuring a S.H.I.E.L.D. jet piloted by Black Widow, and ‘Captain America’s Avenging Cycle’ – had elements too secret even to reveal at the show. One figure missing was one of Loki’s co-villains. Could it be a tiny Simon Cowell? We’ll find out when the kits go on sale in early April.
