(Warning! Spoilers!) Are Thanos, Hyperion and Captain Marvel all in Captain America: Civil War? That's what a new image of LEGO sets for this Marvel Phase Three adventure teases. These are all characters we haven't yet heard mentioned when it comes to this epic blockbuster. The LEGO sets in question also show off 5 epic battles. We're promised an underwater fight against Iron Skull, which will feature Iron Man and Captain America in special scuba suits. And there is also a space battle in play that brings in Captain Marvel, Thanos and Hyperion.
Captain Marvel was originally supposed to be introduced in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but those plans were scrapped. And as far as we know, the character hasn't been cast yet. Will she be introduced in Captain America: Civil War? A movie that is already introducing Spider-Man and Black Panther? And this is the first we've heard about Hyperion showing up in the MCU at all. Will this space battle be a scene that leads directly into Avengers: Infinity War Part I? That explains Thanos' inclusion here, but perhaps these are all just toy tie-ins that really have nothing to do with the movie at all.
Over the past few years, new LEGO playsets for upcoming movies have given fans an early glimpse into some of the biggest action scenes. These sets don't exactly guarantee that these scenes will be depicted in the movie. Though, they're still worth examining. When production started on Captain America: Civil War back in May, Marvel unveiled the official cast list, which confirmed that Ant-Man star Paul Rudd is reprising his role as Scott Lang. Since then, rumors have surfaced that Lang may transform into Giant Man in Captain America: Civil War. And he is yet another character seemingly confirmed in this new LEGO playset photo. Marvel hasn't said one way or another whether or not Giant Man will be seen in the actual movie, when it hits theaters on May 6, 2016, but this LEGO image could hint that Ant-Man gets much bigger. Giant Man is part of the splash page battle that has been previously teased in the first trailer. Here, all of the heroes are gathered at an airport, where they must square off against each other. Will Ant-Man become Giant Man during this fight against titans when it hits the big screen?
The splash page airport LEGO set comes with mini-figs for Cap, Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Winter Soldier, War Machine (Don Cheadle), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Ant-Man and Giant-Man. Other sets featured here bring in Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Cap (Chris Evans). We also get to see Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Crossbones (Frank Grillo) going to war.
While there are a number of characters who aren't featured in these images, one notable exclusion is Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who will make his debut in Captain America: Civil War before starring in his own reboot, produced by both Marvel and Sony Pictures. We still haven't gotten our first official look at the web slinger in Captain America: Civil War yet, and it remains to be seen if he will be featured in any of the trailers or clips as we get closer to the May 6, 2016 release date. The cast also includes Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo, William Hurt as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross and Martin Freeman as an unspecified character.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016. Take a look at this new LEGO set photo below, and stay tuned for more on Captain America: Civil War. What do you think? Are these the battles and characters that we'll get to see in this latest Marvel Phase Three adventure?
