SPOILERS: Have new leaked Avengers: Infinity War Ant-man and Doctor Strange images revealed a new big bad?

July 7th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So, surprise!, we have new leaked images of Avengers: Infinity War.

The new images feature Paul Rudd and Benedict Cumberbatch as Ant-man and Doctor Strange (bottom) and, while not very exciting in themselves, the show a few things.

Firstly Paul Rudd will be running for some reason as Scott Lang/Ant-man and Doctor Strange will be strangled by something CGI (below).

But here’s the thing… could the CGI thing be another Marvel villain?

The character has a label on his suit reading ‘EB MAW,’ which could be Ebony Maw.


Well, Maw is a member of the Black Order who can convoke people to do his bidding by simply talking to them. Strangely, in the comics Maw was once sent by Thanos to kill Doctor Strange so he could invade earth… could that be what we’re seeing here?

In related news, some sites (here) are speculating that this is actually Irish actor Tom Vaughn Lawlor.

(Continues after pic)

Lawlor is best known as Nidge from Love/Hate.

Is it actually him? Well, it DOES look like him… but who can say for sure?

Let us know your thoughts, guys.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
