‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Easter Egg May Tease The Fantastic Four’s Arrival

Fantastic Four Avengers Endgame Marvel

An Easter egg spotted in the latest Avengers: Endgame trailer may be hinting at the arrival of the Fantastic Four.

Earlier this week, the historic Fox/Disney deal finally came to a close. While the deal has unfortunately resulted in the loss of jobs and the shutting down of the Fox 2000 film division, there has still been some good to come out of this deal as well. The most talked-about aspect of the Fox/Disney deal has been the arrival of many of Marvel’s most iconic heroes into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

20th Century Fox previously held the film rights to characters such as the X-Men and Fantastic Four, which is why they have yet to appear in the MCU. Now that Disney has merged with 20th Century Fox, the film rights for characters like the Fantastic Four have been given back to Marvel Studios.

A fan with the username insane_ravager recently took to Reddit to point out a very deep-cut reference to the Fantastic Four that was possibly featured in the latest trailer for Avengers: Endgame. Check out the Fantastic Four Easter egg theory in the post below.

As fans can see in the post, the tease wouldn’t just be a simple reference to the Fantastic Four in Avengers: Endgame but also presents a possible way for those characters to make an appearance in the MCU. Many fans have theorized how the Fantastic Four and X-Men could join the MCU but Kevin Feige has yet to reveal specifically how the 20th Century Fox-owned Marvel heroes will make their MCU debut.

Fans may remember that Avengers: Endgame star Chris Evans has a very particular connection to the Fantastic Four. Long before the actor played the titular hero in Captain America: The First Avenger, he starred in two Fantastic Four films. He first appeared as Johnny Storm, aka Human Torch, in the 2005 film Fantastic Four and its 2007 sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. 

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Avengers: Endgame and the arrival of the Fantastic Four in the MCU as soon as more information becomes available. Do you think this Easter egg was on purpose or simply a coincidence? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame is expected to star Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Renner, Brie Larson, Josh Brolin and Chris Pratt.

“A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”

Avengers: Endgame will hit theaters on April 26, 2019.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
