The new "advanced tech" white suits for Avengers: Endgame continue to appear legitimate with official merchandise from the movie including them. With Captain Marvel's release only a few weeks away, Marvel Studios is close to turning their full attention towards the conclusion of Phase 3. Details on the fourth Avengers film have been few and far between, with Marvel doing their best to lock down what we know about the the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe up until this point.
Set photos were the first clue to time travel likely being involved in Avengers: Endgame, and fans have wondered how the surviving Avengers could pull this off ever since. A combination of the Infinity Stones could make this possible, but then a piece to the puzzle appeared to be revealed. Images surfaced online of white Avengers suits that have since been theorized to make it possible for the heroes to time travel by using the Quantum Realm. The suits have been featured in multiple toys since the initial leak, and now some additional merchandise looks to tease their involvement in the movie.
Merchoid revealed a new batch of official Avengers: Endgame merchandise that includes hoodies and hats that are made to resemble the white suits that we've seen before. The site says these are "Advanced Tech" articles of clothing that "takes inspiration from some of the most advanced technology in the galaxy." The items are currently available for pre-order and are estimated to ship in May of this year. Take a look at them below:
While this appears to further confirm their inclusion in Avengers: Endgame, the descriptions of the items may include even more information on their design and functionality. The description mentions that the suits aren't made out of nanotech or Pym Particles. If this detail is accurate, then these new suits may be more powerful than previously imagined. Many fans had theorized that the suits themselves were made of nanotech and would explain how the suits go on over-the-top of the Avengers' regular costumes. It would appear that whoever invents these suits (likely Tony Stark) will create an entirely new and revolutionary piece of technology.
The description also mentions their functionality for "New York, Wakanda, or in the far reaches of space (and beyond...)," which could speak to the scale of Avengers: Endgame. It is also noticeable how the background on some of the images appears to be replicating the colorful and trippy look of the Quantum Realm. Whether this was by accident or by design is not known, but they've been heavily theorized to be used by the heroes to access the Quantum Realm for time travel, so it may be intentional. That said, this could just be a description built on theories and may not be accurate depictions of the movie versions. With Avengers: Endgame's marketing campaign set to pick up in a few weeks, maybe then we'll finally get confirmation on the purpose of these "advanced tech" suits.
