From a leaked toy set packaging image, we learned that a “greater threat” will emerge and go against our Avengers in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame. As from the trailer, we got nothing that could give away a slight plot point, let alone that there is a new villain debuting in the movie.
Some speculation professes that this new threat will come in the form of Celestials or some other beings which are feared by the Celestials. Some fan theories predict Annihilus or Eternity taking the badge of this new villain.
But the Reddit user ‘Reinheart23’ claims that this new villain could be Death ( not Hela).
As per this theory, Hela was given the title of the Goddess of Death by her mother. And in Avengers Endgame, we will be informed that Hela’s mother was Death. This would explain why Thor could not defeat Hela in Thor: Ragnarok.
“The entire trailer seems to point to “the end”, so what is more final than Death itself?”
According to this theory, Katherine Langford could portray the role of Death in the movie. I disagree with this particular thought of the theory, but everything else seems on point.
There have already been some rumors suggesting that Hela will make a comeback in Avengers 4. Although one couldn’t cross her return off the list, it seems somewhat unlikely to happen. But, Death itself could come out as a villain in the movie.
In the comics too, Thanos and Death have had quite an interesting arc.
