Yesterday the final Avengers Endgame trailer finished with a look at our heroes in matching white suits. This confirmed a number of toy and concept art leaks from the last few months, but what are they for? Well, the best bet among fans is that they’re for time travelling through the Quantum Realm. And now Marvel have confirmed they are indeed inspired by Hank Pym’s suit from Ant-Man and the Wasp.
On the official Marvel website’s breakdown of the trailer, it says: “With the team reassembled to take on Thanos, we see them sporting a unified team look.
“The new suits with the Avengers ‘A’ emblem seem inspired by Hank Pym’s suit he wore to rescue Janet Van Dyne in the Quantum Realm at the end of Ant-Man and The Wasp.”
And just before the end of that film, Janet warned Ant-Man to watch out for time vortexes in the Quantum Realm.
So it looks like the Avengers are wearing these suits to time travel through the Quantum Realm. But why?
Well, the Infinity Stones are located at different points in history and so the Avengers will need them if they want to reverse Thanos’ Snap.
It’s no coincidence, therefore, that Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel were released between Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame – since both films give clues to what will happen in the latter.
But just what is the significance of Captain Marvel?
Well, MCU Cosmic’s Jeremy Conrad has pointed out that Captain Marvel gained her powers after harnessing the power of the Tesseract aka the Space Stone.
He tweeted: “There’s a way to handle time travel and the stones without changing the past and reversing the Snap that way.
“The way Captain Marvel got her powers from the Tesseract could be a big clue to what they plan to do.”
So perhaps the Avengers will go back in time to previous MCU movies to harness the power of each stone just as Captain Marvel did?
But will that mean they’ll have to die as Infinity Stone hosts to make this a reality?
Avengers Endgame is released in UK cinemas on April 25, 2019.
