IMDb has always been a very reliable source for film spoilers. Their page for the MCU movie, Avengers: Endgame points to a whole lot of surprise characters that have not yet been confirmed. It seems pretty legit as well with a few extras in question now verifying that the Phase 3 ending movie will include the concept of time travel.
First, we have Tilda Swinton, who had played the role of the character, Ancient One in Doctor Strange. It had been in this standalone adventure where she had met her fate. IMDb has claimed the Ancient One will now fight again, with the actress, Tilda Swinton making a return for her second MCU appearance. This has indicated that many strange things are now afoot at the Circle K.
Tilda Swinton is not the only character who has been confirmed for this movie. All huge Marvel superheroes who had been decimated by Thanos’ snap will be in this film. They were not going to keep all the iconic characters dead. Especially considering that Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man will get sequels.
One more name that had appeared is Frank Grillo as the character, Crossbones. This should not really come as a surprise as the character, Grillo has been teasing the return for so many years. Grillo had been one of the first ones to hint at time travel and also, flashbacks. Crossbones had been killed in Civil War, and so, Avengers: Endgame might play out like a flashback.
There are some clues that time travel may actually take place in the movie, Avengers: Endgame. This list includes many S.H.E.I.L.D. agents. The secret team had been disbanded within the MCU films after the events in Civil War.
There are also many secondary characters that pointed towards the concept of time travel. There is also a new character called ’70s Car Girl #1′ that sounds pretty intriguing, and also, there is a ‘1970s Scientist/Lab Worker’, and neither of which the fans have seen before.
One more rumoured character had made an appearance to make a return, though maybe in modern day. Ty Simpkins, who had played the role of the child in Iron Man 3 is also supposedly set to return. He had been 12 years old when this sequel had been shot, and he has since grown to become 17 year old.
From the trailer of Avengers: Endgame, we know that the movie stars, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Paul Rudd and Karen Gillan.
However, four characters are not listed on the Avengers: Endgame page -Tom Hiddleston, Paul Bethany, Idris Elba and Zoe Saldana and we they are all confirmed to be dead.
