Last week, Instagram user lego_club_news claimed that the summer wave of Marvel sets – notably absent from recent retailer reveals, which ranged from Disney and Speed Champions to CITY and Creator – would be unveiled on May 11. That’s today, folks.
According to rumours published back in March, the new wave of sets will take advantage of the gap in Marvel Cinematic Universe releases (spurred by the pandemic delaying the likes of Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings) to revisit earlier movies in the superhero pantheon, all branded under the ‘Infinity Saga’ banner.
Whether these rumoured sets will be revealed directly by the LEGO Group through an official press release or simply appear on third-party retail sites remains to be seen, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled and bring you any official images as soon as we can.
Of course, we’re obliged to point out that the initial rumour around the release date may yet be false, so there’s no guarantee that we’re going to see new LEGO Marvel sets today. But if we do, here’s what rumours say we can expect to find on shelves later this summer:
