A toyline spoiling a surprise character is nothing new, we’ve already had numerous cases of action figure previews showing characters that have yet to appear in their respective comics (for example, the figures for Black Lantern Superman being shown in previews even before the comic has a chance to tackle the Black Lanterns), but it is still a cool thing to see that that the promotional blurb for the Avengers Movie Heroclix set may have inadvertently revealed another Villain aside from Loki:
“Charging straight out of theaters and onto your tabletop, Marvel’s the Avengers Movie HeroClix set features heroes like Captain America and Thor as they battle the villainy of the Red Skull and Loki!”
Of course, we can’t always consider it as actual spoilers. Red Skull could have been included in the set due to his appearance in the Captain America movie, which is technically part of the Avengers movie’s continuity. On the other hand, the Red Skull was not actually confirmed dead in the Captain America movie, and we all know how sneaky a cosmic cube can be.
