The streamer released the first poster for the all-new special on Twitter with the caption, “Get ready to assemble.” The poster shows the iconic Avengers logo made out of red LEGO bricks, as well as the special’s Disney+ release date — October 27, 2023. At the time of writing, no further details about the upcoming special’s storyline or cast have been released.
While there was a Code Red team assembled by Red Hulk to kill Domino in Marvel Comics‘ 2009 Hulk run, it is unknown if the title of the Disney+ special refers to that minor team — whose members included characters like Deadpool, Punisher, and Elektra — or something else entirely.
