IMDb isn’t he most reliable source for movie spoilers, as some film pages get updated that aren’t quite accurate. But the page for Avengers: Endgame now indicates that a number of surprise characters that haven’t been publicly confirmed.
First up is Tilda Swinton, who played the Ancient One in Doctor Strange. It was in that standalone adventure where she met her ultimate fate. Now, IMDb claims the Ancient One will rise to fight again, with Tilda Swinton returning for her second MCU appearance. This definitely indicates that strange things are afoot at the Circle K. Do the other Avengers seek her help via time travel? Is she an ascended ghost? Or are we going to get a flashback to Doctor Strange’s origin story?
Tilda Swinton isn’t the only character seeming confirmed for the cast. Not surprisingly, every major Marvel superhero that was decimated by Thanos’ mighty snap is in the movie. This one we expected. They weren’t going to keep so many iconic characters on ice. Especially considering that Spider-Man, Black Panther and Doctor Strange are all set to get sequels, and none of these actors are getting any younger, so prequels for any of them sound a little iffy.
