Three new pieces of digital art have been unveiled, reimagining some of the titular heroes from Avengers: Endgame as characters from the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 video game. The latest (and arguably greatest) Marvel team-up movie debuted in theaters earlier this year. The adventure saw the collective superheroes journey through time and face off with Thanos once again in an effort to undo the Mad Titan's actions from Avengers: Infinity War. As well as amassing rave reviews, the franchise redefining installment also shattered box office records. In the wake of the film's already considerable success, Disney will next turn their attention to an Oscar campaign.
Developed by CD Projekt Red, Cyberpunk 2077 has been in the works for a number of years and, to many, is as highly-anticipated as any MCU installment. The role-playing game is due for release in 2020 and came to more widespread prominence at this year's E3 convention- where actor Keanu Reeves surprised audiences with a breathtaking appearance and unveiled the game's first official trailer. Although Reeves himself enjoyed pride of place within the footage, he'll unfortunately not be a romance option. It was later revealed that almost all of Cyberpunk 2077 would be first-person, and that the game will receive a multiplayer mode at some point in the future.
Posted on Screen Rant's own Instagram page, fans can now check out three new pieces of original art that crosses the streams of both franchises. The first depicts Chris Hemsworth's Thor as part of the futuristic world - complete with bright yellow eyes, a cool new scar, and a fitting new outfit. The second features Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark. Though the character also known as Iron Man sacrificed his life to see Thanos and his forces defeated once and for all, the art depicts him very much alive and as cool as ever. Blessed with a purple hue, Stark sits comfortably in a chair with a stunningly realized backdrop behind him, one hand wholly human and the other infinitely more robotic. The third image is of Chris Evans' Steve Rogers. Although he was last seen to be retired and passing the Captain America mantle to Sam Wilson, the new image sees the character back on the street and in the thick of it. All three stunning images can be checked out in the space below.
Hemsworth will remain within the MCU for the foreseeable future. Last seen leaving Earth with the Guardians of the Galaxy, he'll return to star alongside fellow returning players Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman in Thor: Love and Thunder. Evans, meanwhile, has officially moved on for the time being. The Boston-born actor has a number of projects in the pipeline, including the Rian Johnson-directed murder mystery, Knives Out. Downey Jr. will apparently continue to straddle both worlds despite the character's demise. Along with the upcoming Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, it's been reported that he may make an appearance in the solo Black Widow movie. The titular heroes also have their own Marvel's Avengers game set to debut next year.
That will surely not prove enough for fans, however, after seeing the images. Based on the comments, many are already wishing the crossover was real and the imagined game was actually available to play. John Wick star Reeves has already been experiencing a resurgence in popularity in recent years. Seeing him alongside the equally popular Avengers, however, would no doubt take that to a whole new level and certainly be a team-up for the ages. Sadly, however, until such time as Kevin Feige finally does find the perfect role for Reeves in the MCU, fans will just have to continue to enjoy the combination of Avengers: Endgame and Cyberpunk 2077 in artwork.
