On the heels of Monday's leak, and following months of speculation, it's at last been confirmed who's wearing the Hulkbuster armor in Avengers: Infinity War -- thanks to a LEGO set.
A low-resolution image of the package for “The Hulkbuster Smash-Up” strongly implied that Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner pilots the metal behemoth, as his mini-figure isn't part of the action depicted on the front of the box. That certainly lines up with the most popular theory that's circulated since the debut of the first trailer for Infinity War. However, the arrival of new images from LEGO ahead of this weekend's New York Toy Fair erase any doubts about the pilot's identity.
The back of the packaging for "The Hulkbuster Smash-Up" shows the Banner mini-figure springing from within the armor to join in the fight for an Infinity Stone. Each of the Infinity War LEGO sets comes with its own Infinity Stone, so we may not want to take that aspect of the scene too literally.
The Infinity War LEGO sets also include "Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown," "Thanos: Ultimate Battle," "Corvus Glaive Thresher Attack," "Thor's Weapon Quest" and "Outrider Dropship Attack."
