Right - here's one for the real Avengers purists. Josh Brolin - who plays the evil (or at least, drastically misunderstood) Thanos - has responded to one of the more unusual fan theories with a video on his Instagram page.
Oh, and if it looks like Brolin is just taking a ridiculously difficult shite, that's because he is.
But first, a bit of background. Brolin's character Thanos acquired the Infinity Gauntlet at the end of Avengers: Infinity War and successfully managed to destroy (or at least, disappear) half of the life forms in the universe.
Basically, a decent amount of everyone's favourite Marvel Cinematic Universe characters are missing presumed disintegrated.
So, with that in mind, we can reasonably assume that the next and most likely final instalment in this era of The Avengers will see our remaining heroes chasing down Thanos and trying to stop him and restore their disappeared chums to life.
Now, people have been working overtime to come up with ways to do that. I mean, how do you get rid of a super-powerful and super-malevolent being with an Infinity Gauntlet, for Christ's sake?
You smuggle a minuscule character up his arse and then re-expand them to human form whilst inside him, of course.
Yes, some people think that Ant-Man - played by the ageless Paul Rudd - should crawl up Thanos' backside whilst he is in his microscopic form and explode him from the inside out.
In response to this, Brolin shared a video of himself sitting on the toilet, taking care of business, as it were.
Brolin confirmed fans suspicions by using the hashtag #FlushAnAntMan and #50percenthernia - presumably referring to the prolapse-inducing effort required to shit out an Avenger - in his post.
However, it seems unlikely that this will be the eventual outcome of the film. It would be a remarkable move from Marvel to have their flagship film series draw to a conclusion with Paul Rudd exploding out of the rectum of Josh Brolin.
Stranger things have happened though, right?
We'll just have to wait and see. Avengers: Endgame will hit cinemas in the UK on 26 April 2019.
