Avengers: Endgame Toys May Reveal Major Returning Villains

Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame

LEGO for Avengers: Endgame may reveal that the Chitauri -- the race of aliens that made up Loki's army in the first Avengers movie -- will return in the upcoming film.

The following image comes from the Instagram account of user michael_bricks_vol.11 and appears to show several previously unseen LEGO sets, one of which includes Chitauri figures. The logo on the page and the boxes make it clear these are sets for Endgame.

It's not clear at this time how accurate these toys might be to the movie and what role -- if any -- the Chitauri might play. However, these sets are likely to provide further evidence to those who theorize that time travel will play a key role in the film, especially since the Avengers appear to be wearing their new white suits in these images, which many think have to do with the Quantum Realm.

While merchandising leaks ahead of a film's release are common, co-director Joe Russo previously commented that virtually all advance merchandising from Endgame would differ from the final film.
