POTENTIAL GIANT SPOILERS: Has LEGO revealed a surprise appearance in Captain America: Civil War?

In a world desperate for the latest comic book movie spoilers, Marvel are usually pretty good at keeping things locked down; until those pesky guys over at Lego release images of their new sets coming out, including what could be some pretty big spoilers for Captain America: Civil War.

The image below is a scan from the pages of the new Lego catalog thanks to Squareeyed, which reveals some new sets, and opens up some new questions. Take a look:

Lego Captain America: Civil War

The Civil War pics are what we’re interested in (though we’ll get back to the other ones in a bit). The sets include one of Captain America, Winter Soldier and Black Panther, a second of Black Widow, Falcon and Crossbones (who we’re yet to see in an official trailer, but who will be one of the villains of the film) and one featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Black Panther, the Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, War Machine, Agent 13, a tiny Ant-Man and… Giant-Man?!

Technically it’s an oversized Ant-Man figure, but those who know their comics know that the character can use the Pym Particles (the secret ingredient that gives him the ability to shrink) as a means of growing to ridiculous sizes. We saw a bit of that in Ant-Man (in the best Thomas the Tank Engine cameo we’ve ever seen), but we’re yet to see it done to a human.

Ant-Man director Peyton Reed recently hinted that there was a possibility that we may see Giant-Man or Goliath in 2018’s sequel Ant-Man and The Wasp, but in the interview with Comic Book Resources there was no indication of the giant step being taken in Civil War.

It would explain why we didn’t see too much of Scott Lang in the recent trailer, with Giant-Man being a serious addition to the ranks. Of course, this is only a Lego set, which isn’t any kind of official confirmation of the character, but our hopes are high for this one.

Other sets featured in the image include a glimpse at villains Thanos and Red Skull – could we be seeing his return some time soon as well?
