AVENGERS 4 Merchandise Description Potentially Teases A New Villain
Don’t read this if you don’t wish to have Avengers 4 potentially spoiled.
The merchandising leaks for Avengers 4 have led to lots of speculation about the new film, with the latest being a threat greater than Thanos could be coming in the fourth film. Check out what Rocket Raccoon and Thor’s box art has to say about their role in the new film (via Comicbook):
The Asgardian Thor wields the mighty Stormbreaker in his battle against new foes. Rocket teams up with a new crew to guard the galaxy from an even greater threat.
Who are these new foes? We can only guess but with rumors of Avengers 4 being titled “Annihilation,” some circles are suggesting this new villain is the Negative Zone ruler Annihilus. Others are skeptical of this considering the villain is still technically property of Fox. Sure the Disney and Fox deal has gone through, but putting the villain in the script long before the deal was a sure thing would’ve been a big dice roll to say the least. Of course, Disney might’ve worked out some deal with Fox beforehand for the villain, who is typically tied to the Fantastic Four.
Keep in mind a lot of this, beyond the actual description, is just general speculation. There could be other options for villains Thor faces off against. Any ideas? Feel free to share your ideas in the comments below.
