From watching each and every Marvel Cinematic Universe film for Easter Eggs to constantly refreshing the Avengers: Endgame IMDb page, Marvel fans have searched far and wide for any spoilers for the upcoming movie.

Turns out that a 1.5-inch plastic toy might have just provided us with a major revelation that confirms many fans’ ongoing speculation.

LEGO’s newest promotional Iron Man figure seemingly reveals the armor he’ll be wearing in Avengers: Endgame. The minifigure shows Tony Stark in the Mark 85 suit, which has yet to be seen in an MCU film.

Fans have been speculating since September that the Mark 85 will finally make its big screen debut, as leaked images also seemed to hint that Iron Man will don the high-tech suit to either defeat Thanos in the present, or go back in time and prevent him from turning into the Mad Titan at all.

The Mark 85 suit has so far only appeared in the comics and many believe it to be Iron Man’s greatest armor. More LEGO minifigure leaks have teased appearances by three other armors in the upcoming film: the Mark I, Mark V, and Mark XLI (a.k.a. "Bones").

Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters on April 26, 2019.

Stranger Things is great at placing the truly terrifying alongside the absolutely adorable. One minute we are gushing over Eleven and Mike’s teen romance, and the next we’re jumping off the couch at the sight of those possessed by the Mind Flayer.

No matter how seamless the Duffer Brothers' Netflix series is in weaving together these moments, it seems like it would be impossible to make the Demogorgon cute. But somehow, one crafty fan has done just that.

Etsy shop ThatCraftyFriendShop has created Demogorgon headpieces that fit perfectly on your dog’s head.

People reports that the headpieces range in size from extra small (for 5- to 10-pound dogs) all the way to extra large (for dogs over 75 pounds). Prices range from $25 to $75, depending on the size of your four-legged friend.

These wool and felt doggy costumes are perfect for Halloween, or even a Stranger Things watch party while you continue to binge and re-binge the third seasonwith a decked-out doggy by your side.

J.K. Rowling Reveals How San Francisco Inspired Major Harry Potter Location

The award-winning play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is about to open at the Curran Theater in San Francisco. The two-part drama takes place 19 years after the events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and depicts Harry’s life as his son, Albus, is about to begin school at Hogwarts.

J.K. Rowling has pointed out that San Francisco had a deep influence on the original Harry Potter novels, SFGate reports. In the video below, Rowling talks about how Alcatraz, the infamous former prison, inspired her creation of Azkaban.

"[San Francisco] is a very distinctive, special place—I love the feel of it, I love the architecture,” Rowling said. “I've actually said this before, but Azkaban is a combination of Alcatraz and Abbadon, which is an old word for hell. I squeezed those words together. The idea of the rock in the middle of the ocean was directly inspired by a visit to Alcatraz."

With its mist and Gothic mood, it’s no wonder this slice of San Francisco inspired a big part of the Harry Potter world.
