The hottest trend of the moment is the 10-Year Challenge, which sees people sharing photos of themselves in 2009 versus 2019, and now Marvel Studios has got in on the action.
The studio’s official Twitter account shared some side-by-side comparisons of the Avengers and, to be honest, the last decade has not been kind to our heroes.
Tony Stark has gone from international billionaire playboy to being stuck in space while Thor has gone from a hulking, confident Asgardian with lush hair to having a short-back-and-sides and losing his entire family.
Black Widow, Captain America and Phil Coulson are looking pretty weary nowadays, and Hawkeye is super peeved because his family probably didn’t survive the Snap.
Nick Fury is the only one who is looking pretty damn good, despite losing an eye and all that.
We’ll be discovering how that injury occurred in Captain Marvel which will be hitting screens in March and introducing Brie Larson’s titular hero.
In the 90s-set movie, Fury is a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who teams up with Captain Marvel (AKA Carol Danvers) to stop a shape-shifting alien race from taking over the highest forms of government.
Following Captain Marvel’s release will be Avengers: Endgame, the final instalment of this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here’s a synopsis:
Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers – Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, Ant-Man and Bruce Banner – must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos, the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.
Captain Marvel hits screens on 8 March and Avengers: Endgame arrives on 26 April
