In an exciting sneak peek, the fate of our planet is hanging by a thread in the upcoming special, LEGO Marvel Avengers Code Red, set to debut exclusively on Disney+ later this week.
Despite their desire for a little downtime and fun post-mission, our superhero team finds themselves thrust into yet another battle against an unrelenting threat in this latest animated feature LEGO Marvel Avengers Code Red.
Crime never sleeps, as they say, and a new menace has emerged in the LEGO version of the MCU. The latest trailer for LEGO Marvel Avengers Code Red unveils a shocking twist: the Collector, an enigmatic cosmic figure, weary of pilfering rare treasures from the far reaches of the galaxy, has set his sights on the ultimate acquisition – the Avengers themselves. They are joined by a very familiar Marvel mutant superhero that needs no further introduction.
Now, Earth’s mightiest heroes must unite to thwart his nefarious scheme before they become permanent exhibits in his twisted collection.
LEGO Marvel Avengers Code Red Continues the Legacy of LEGO and Marvel Collaboration
This animated special continues the rich legacy of collaboration between LEGO and Marvel. They have previously teamed up to bring us animated short stories featuring iconic characters like the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and Black Panther. The creative freedom offered by the animated LEGO universe allows for a unique blend of characters. In this special, we witness older iterations of heroes joining forces with newer additions from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Unveiling a New Cosmic Menace: The Collector
The Collector, also known as Taneleer Tivan, is a formidable antagonist hailing from the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe. Portrayed by Benicio Del Toro in live-action MCU films, this character has a singular obsession – to amass intriguing artifacts from across the galaxy, thereby constructing a one-of-a-kind yet highly illegal collection of stolen goods. His fixation on expanding his collection is unparalleled, and he has gone as far as kidnapping both people and creatures from his intergalactic travels if he deems them worthy additions to his twisted exhibition.
What Lies Ahead for the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
While the LEGO rendition of these timeless characters engages in an epic showdown with the Collector, the live-action Marvel world is gearing up for the release of The Marvels. This highly-anticipated film stars Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, and Iman Vellani, and promises an exciting storyline where Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau, and Kamala Khan navigate a perplexing power-swapping predicament. The sequel is slated for a theatrical release on November 10.
