Avengers: Endgame is nearly here and we don’t know what to do with ourselves, as resurfaced set pictures give away further details of the plot.

Following a surprise trailer on Thursday afternoon, the internet has been bursting with brand new theories – and overwhelming excitement – trying to figure if the Avengers will be able reverse Thanos’ devastating snap in Infinity War.

Now, these images from the set of Endgame are adding fuel to the speculation fire.

One photo from the 2018 set sees the cast laughing and mucking about as they filmed scenes, with Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) and Paul Rudd (Ant Man) in on the jokes.

But a closer look tells a different story, as it is very noticeable that Captain America is clad in his original suit.

Some fans are speculating that this means dire things or happy endings – depending on where you sit on the fence.

Could the Avengers have time-travelled, or did Ant-Man save day and hunt down the Avengers of the past to warn them about half the world turning into dust because they couldn’t defeat Thanos?

Also Ant-Man’s outfit here is key. He’s wearing his get up from the 2017 movie, which suggests this isn’t a flashback at all but instead is real time. Could he really be time travelling?

In another picture, Thor is seen with long hair and two eyes – something he did not have the last we saw him in Infinity War.

The god of thunder has had a bit of journey after his hair was cut off and he lost an eye in Thor: Ragnarok.

Tony Stark aka Iron Man was seen without his fancy suit … on earth? In case you missed it, Tony was stuck in space with Nebula and rapidly running out of oxygen the last time we saw him.

The recent trailer also strongly hints that Tony made it back to earth as we see him and Nebula back at the Avengers HQ with the rest of the surviving heroes.

But is it legit? We all know how trailers can lie – the Infinity War trailer showed that amazing scene with the Hulk running through Wakanda, but then the film came, and Bruce Banner doesn’t hulk out once. So maybe, just maybe, this is all something to get our hopes up.

Although we don’t expect Tony to die anti-climatically in space, so the real interest will come from how he is rescued – and also why on earth Tom Hiddleston, who played a slain Loki, was on set if his character is dead?

Thanos killed Loki at the very start of Infinity War and if it wasn’t for these resurfaced pictures we may not have wondered if he was alive at all as he does not appear in the new trailer.

To be fair – this is Loki after all. The God of Mischief, a character we have watched die time and time again.

And the badass shot of all the Avengers walking through the HQ in the trailer seems to prove that, as the suits were worn by the gang look very similar to those worn by Hank Pym and co while travelling into the quantum realm in Ant-Man and The Wasp.

It looks like time travel will play a huge part in Endgame – and the gang will look fly AF while doing it.

The movie will close out an 11-year plan by Marvel and Kevin Feige, as one chapter in the MCU comes to an end.

And this is hinted at in epic fashion throughout the trailer, with flashbacks to the past 20-plus movies playing throughout in black and white, and reflecting how each story has led to this conclusion.

Feige recently found himself teasing what’s to come in the highly anticipated movie,  directed by the Russo brothers, and while discussing running times with Digital Spy, he told the publication that the upcoming release is going to be ‘perfect.’

‘We’re gonna release the movie at the exact right running time,’ the 45-year-old stated before adding: ‘I’m telling you this, it’s gonna be perfect. It’s gonna be the exact running time that the movie needs to be.’

Talking about what’s to come, he continued: ‘I think there’s a lot of story in that movie and a lot of characters in that movie.

‘In all seriousness, we don’t look at run times in terms of mandates, or anything like that. Every movie should feel like it’s an hour and 45 minutes.’

And as for why bosses decided not to reveal how the movie was titled Endgame, Kevin told Collider that they thought it would be too much of a spoiler for fans.

While at a Captain Marvel press day, the director said: ‘Well, I think I’d said that it all had gotten blown out of proportion to some extent.

‘But it was a spoiler, because if you knew before Infinity War came out that the next movie was called Endgame, then you know that there wasn’t an ending to Infinity War.’

Avengers: Endgame is in UK cinemas 25 April.
