What if everyone’s favorite locomotive, Thomas the Tank Engine, had Captain Marvel’s powers in Avengers: Endgame? That’s a question that will be answered today. Avengers: Endgame recently concluded its second theatrical run, bringing its worldwide gross to over $2.7 billion.
Avengers: Endgame was one busy movie. During its global debut, it made over $1 billion, completely shattering the box office. It would go on to become the highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide, surpassing the record held by Avatar. There are numerous reasons why this happened, chief among them being that the film feels like a satisfying conclusion to 11 years of stories. The film also has one of the largest ensemble casts of all time. One important character is Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel. Although technically not appearing too much, she had two vital scenes: saving Tony Stark in space, and destroying Thanos’ ship in the final battle. Without her, the heroes would have had a more difficult time winning the day. Now, what if instead of Captain Marvel entering the climax, it’s Thomas the Tank Engine who rides in to save the day?
With clever editing, Thomas the Tank Engine has replaced Captain Marvel’s climatic entrance in Avengers: Endgame. The train comes complete with its signature sound effect, which is nicely integrated into the music. Check out the video (via C. Robert Cargill) below.
Thomas the Tank Engine is certainly no stranger to the MCU. Thomas appeared in the climax to Ant-Man, where Scott Lang and Yellowjacket battled before the train turned life-size thanks to Pym Particles. Although Captain Marvel’s appearance was effective in Avengers: Endgame, many fans would certainly have marveled if Thomas showed up to save the day. Thanos’ reaction in the video is priceless. Now, if only someone could add in the Hello Kitty PEZ dispenser.
Hopefully Thomas the Tank Engine will make his way into the MCU again. Meanwhile, the Thomas addition isn’t the only fan edit for Avengers: Endgame. A Reddit user recently posted a video incorporating Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man” theme into the famous Tony Stark snap sequence at the end of Avengers: Endgame. It actually works pretty well. Avengers: Endgame released on digital last week (the physical release comes out August 13), so now fans can experience the superhero event over and over. Of course, having watched the above video, it’s going to be hard not picturing Thomas the Tank Engine arriving in the climax.
