Surely by this point youâ€™ve taken the Avengers: Endgame trailer apart frame by frameâ€”if Hawkeye felt the need to rebrand as Ronin, does that mean heâ€™s avenging his post-dusting family? Is Nebula saying goodbye to a dearly departed Cap? How many wigs can Scarlett Johanssonâ€™s head possibly take?â€”but thatâ€™s purely on a mental level. Some of us might be better suited to deconstructing the trailer and rebuilding it in a different way: with LEGOs! And by â€œsome of us,â€ I mean Huxley Berg Studios, the YouTube home of countless big-ticket trailers recreated in LEGO.
Now, there is a lot to love here, but what I find most remarkable is the emotional turmoil I experience when Iron Man's helmet goes dark. Itâ€™s just as sharp as what I felt when I saw the actual Robert Downey Jr. power it down. (I shouldnâ€™t really be surprised;Â The LEGO Batman MovieÂ made me cry more than once, and, well, itâ€™s The LEGO Batman Movie. What I'm saying is animated LEGOs destroy me on an emotional level.) Something else I enjoy about LEGO renderings, both licensed and unofficial, of real people is learning whose faces translate best to yellow plastic. Here, Iâ€™m going with Jeremy Renner. The man looks like an action figure come to life anyway, so minifig isnâ€™t too far a leap.I wonâ€™t blame you if you fall down a rabbit hole of Huxley Berg clips now. If I were you, I would check out theÂ Infinity WarÂ trailer if only to see Bearded Lego Cap. And, of course, be sure to check back as moreÂ EndgameÂ trailers drop. You know thereâ€™ll be a fair few.Whoâ€™s your favorite yellow plastic Avenger? Let us know in the comments!
