Avengers: Endgame is just over a week away, and the hype for the blockbuster has never been bigger. As the clock counts down to Thanos’ comeback, fans are taking to social media to share their excitement, and Twitter is helping out with its own emojis. However, it seems a character return may have been spoiled by the avatars.
So, you’ve been warned! There are possible spoilers for Avengers: Endgame below!
Earlier today, Twitter hit up fans with dozens of new Avengers emojis. It appears there are about 40 avatars which certain hashtags can unlock, and all the usual suspects are there. Oh, and the Red Skull shows up too.
omg is he gonna be important in endgame.. #stonekeeper— gabe (@buckbarners) April 16, 2019
If you use #StoneKeeper in a tweet, you will unlock the special avatar. The emoji shows the Red Skull’s iconic face, and it has fans wondering if the guy really does show up in this Avengers sequel. After all, the villain did show up in Avengers: Infinity War, and he had an interesting role to play.
As fans will remember, the Red Skull acted as the keeper of the Soul Stone on Vormir. He was forced to act as its watcher for many years as an immortal force, but he was freed from the duty when Thanos showed up with Gamora in tow. After explaining the Soul Stone’s price, the Red Skull was freed when Thanos killed Gamora as a sacrifice, but fans aren’t sure where he has gone since.
If this emoji line refers specifically to characters seen in Avengers: Endgame, then it appears the Red Skull will show up again. His appearance could be a short one setting up his influence on the MCU’s next phase, so fans will want to watch carefully for this recently revived villain.
So, what do you think about this character's possible return? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
