More ‘Endgame’ Toy Leaks Confirm Rumors and Raise Questions

Over the weekend a large number of Avengers: Endgame toys leaked from what appears to be a store outside the US. These sorts of leaks aren’t uncommon as manufacturing ramps up on the toys and they make their way to nearby locations right from the factory, and this weekend’s leaks were made up of some of the larger “Titan Hero” figures as well as a normal Thanos and Hulk figure. All of them can be found on Imgur.

Among the stuff confirmed by the leaks is that those white suits everyone hates are very real. We saw them earlier this month in previous leaks, but this gave us clear pictures of the Thor, Rocket, Black Widow, and Hulk toys in those suits. And once again the toy packaging confirms that promo art from last summer is once again real. In fact one toy packaging (that’s not in that Imgur gallery sadly) is using the exact poses from that team image that leaked last summer.

At the same time, the toys raise some big questions about Avengers: Endgame; specifically Black Widow. In the teaser trailer they released, she had her same hair that she did in Avengers: Infinity War. The leaked toys and promo art for Avengers: Endgame shows her with long red hair in a pony tail. And there hasn’t been a single piece of promo art, toy, t-shirt, etc. released that shows Black Widow with the short blonde hair. Everything has been with the long hair in the ponytail.

When the Avengers: Endgame trailer was released, some people had a theory that the Black Widow scenes were either digitally altered or put in there specifically for the trailer. Because Marvel has a long history of doing exactly that. People on social media called that theory crazy in an attempt to prove the promo leaks fake, but these toys again show that they’re definitely real. There’s a possibility that theory has merit, while there’s another possibility that we’ll be seeing multiple time periods in Avengers: Endgame thanks to the Time Vortexes established in Ant-Man and The Wasp and the one where Black Widow has longer hair is the majority of the movie that won’t be shown in the marketing.
