SPOILERS for Avengers: Endgame
A video has been released recreating the climactic moment of Avengers: Endgame in Lego. The final battle sequence was one of the film’s most complicated and memorable scenes, featuring almost every single character previously featured in the saga summoned from across the universe for a final showdown with Thanos and his forces.
People with creative talents have always been inspired by the creations of others, and any successful film is bound to inspire a raft of imitators using their own talents to express their love of it. Such is the vast scope of Avengers: Endgame and its immediate stratospheric success that will doubtless soon make it the most profitable film of all time, it’s only natural that people will be inspired by it and want to share what they’ve produced with the world.
A video from Brick Force Studios has been released, giving a Lego spin on the closing moments of the final battle from Avengers: Endgame. It faithfully recreates the moment when Tony Stark manages to grab the Infinity Stones from Thanos, activate them in his own electronic Infinity Gauntlet and use their power to turn Thanos’ army to dust, then finally at the moment he fully feels the weight of his complete and utter defeat, make the Mad Titan himself meet a similar fate.
Brick Force Studios is a video production house who recreate memorable moments from pop culture in short Lego videos, creating their own custom minifigures and using stop-motion animation with CGI augmentations to bring their creations to life. Some of their previous videos include trailers for Avengers: Infinity War, The Last Jedi, and Transformers: The Last Knight, while their trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising was shared by the likes of the film’s stars John Boyega and Scot Eastwood. They have also posted recreations of key scenes from films such as Deadpool’s “superhero landing” moment where Deadpool, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead first face Angel Dust; and the gruesome opening moments from It where Bill’s young brother Georgie encounters Pennywise. As well as their own versions of popular films, their videos also include some brief tutorials detailing how viewers can replicate their custom models, should they be similarly inspired.
The climax of Avengers: Endgame left audiences thrilled, emotional, and heartbroken, the scale of the all-or-nothing final confrontation having enough twists and turns to practically be its own film, with many still likely not quite recovered from the experience. While the Lego version of its final moments obviously doesn’t have anything even approaching the same kind of money behind it, it shows that when you have enough creativity vast sums of money are not always required. Even with the limited expression and articulation possessed by Lego models, the climactic impact of the final moment was preserved, particularly with the knowledge that Stark wasn’t going to survive the experience. It’s a faithful enough recreation that it will satiate a need you might have to relive the moments, or at least fill a gap until the next time you can get to see the film.
