Lego has announced an Infinity Gauntlet set from Marvel's Infinity War, and words cannot describe how brilliant it would be to have this build sitting on your desk so you can snap its fingers and magically manifest a cup of tea for yourself. Wait, that's not how it works?
Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe spans 2021 to 2023, and it's off to an excellent start. Firstly, we watched WandaVision, the curious and unsettling sitcom that was inspired by different decades of television as the characters tried to understand where (and when) they were. No spoilers, of course, but this miniseries sets up a connection to Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which is in turn linked to Spider-Man: No Way Home. Rumours are running rampant that the previous Spideys will be welcomed back to New York City, and this theory has only snowballed with the announcement that Alfred Molina is on board to reprise his role as Doctor Octopus. His character will be the same as he was in Spider Man 2, thanks to some CGI magic. "I now have two chins, a wattle, crow's feet and a slightly dodgy lower back," mused Molina in an interview. "[Director Jon Watts] just looked at me and said, 'Did you see what we did to Bob Downey Jr. and Sam Jackson?'"
This hasn't scratched the surface of what's on its way to the silver and small screen in the next two years. Check out this sizzle reel of how far the heroes and villains have come and what's in store below.
Well, it's worth mentioning that none of these movies or miniseries would even be here had it not been for Thanos. The Titan saw the imbalance in the universe and believed that the only viable solution would be to eradicate half of all organic life using the immense power of the Infinity Stones. While the dwarf Eitri forged the gauntlet itself, he plucked the Mind Stone from Vision, sacrificed Gamora for the Soul Stone, killed the Nova Corps for the Power Stone, forced the Collector to hand over the Reality Stone, received the Time Stone from Doctor Strange, and crushed the Tesseract for the Space Stone.
Phew. That did take a lot of Google searches on my part. Fortunately, this Lego Infinity Gauntlet set comes with all of the Infinity Bricks and you don't need to commission a blacksmith to create the rest of the golden gauntlet. It has 590 pieces (nothing to sniff at) and it also allows for the manipulation of the fingers so you can pose it in that fateful snap. Yes, snap. Not blip. I'm standing firm on this front, Marvel. "This golden gauntlet provides an engrossing construction challenge and a finished model that will captivate all who see it," reads the description provided for the set. Right now, it's not been officially released, but it will cost $69.99 apparently. A small price to pay for salvation.
