Avengers: Endgame Funko Trailer Teases a Comedic Take on the Finale
First, for the spoiler-phobes, we should clarify. Even though the video you are about to see below (if you choose) is presented as a trailer, it’s…probably not. At least not for Avengers: Endgame, the live-action conclusion to the first huge arc of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is likely the first of several comedic Funko takes on the material. Using animated CG characters in the Funko Pop style, this is more of a comedy short, imagining what might happen if Rocket Raccoon had to take on Thanos one-on-one. And they both have really massive noggins.
Funko is itself getting a movie soon-ish, and there will be officially licensed comic-book characters in it. So the clip could also be a taste of the tone you’ll see in that.
As Yoda might probably not say, “Always two there are: a Tom, and a Jerry.” You can enact your own similar scenarios with Funko’s vast array of Avengers products, on sale now. With surely much more to come once all the spoilers are out there. (We still think Peter Dinklage’s Eitri from the last one needs more merchandise love.)
As a general rule, it’s worth noting that toy companies are rarely given access to super-spoilery material. They sometimes know more than we do, but if the filmmakers want to keep something a secret, they don’t even tell the marketing partners until the movie opens.
However, we definitely wouldn’t mind seeing a Rocket versus Thanos fight happen. Though if Rocket snaps his fingers, everyone in the universe will probably lose their prosthetics, fillings, and so on.
Who do you think would win this battle of small and sassy versus bad and burly? Let us know in comments below.
