Marvel action figure reveals a major setpiece from Avengers: Infinity War
This post may contain spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.
Disney ought to start slapping some spoiler warnings on its toy boxes.
A new image circulating around the internet and picked up by Comic Book Movie purports to reveal a new Marvel action figure tying into Avengers: Infinity War, and the image appears to single-handedly spoil what will likely be a major setpiece in the movie.
The box art of the toy seems to confirm a fan prediction that Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner will suit up in Tony Stark's Hulkbuster suit at some point during Infinity War, joining Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's super-exclusive "People who are not Iron Man who have worn the Iron Man suit" club.
Banner suiting up as Iron Man won't be done as a mere lark, it seems. According to what the toy's box art suggests, Banner will actually unleash the big green guy while wearing the Hulkbuster suit, bursting out of the armor and all-but-destroying it from the inside-out.
The figure, called the Hulk-Out Hulkbuster, doesn't exactly spoil why Banner would decide to suit up in his science bro's armor, nor does it reveal why he would then decide to Hulk out to get out of it instead of calmly removing it piece-by-piece and returning it unharmed, as a proper friend would.
As Comic Book Movie speculates, Banner may don the suit as part of an effort to stay in action while not tapping into his destructive alter-ego following the events of Thor: Ragnarok. It seems that something, be it Thanos or his Black Order, will prompt the mild-mannered scientist to quite violently change his mind.
Disney recently announced that the release date for the third Avengers movie would be moving forward one week; Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters worldwide on April 27.
