By now many of you have seen the incredible props on display from the Collector’s vault at Disney’s new Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout ride. The repurposed Tower of Terror now follows the Guardians as they escape from Taneleer Tivan’s Fortress after recently being added to his collection. Among his legendary collection are some interesting props, some of which are said to be teases of upcoming additions to the MCU.
Kree artifacts, the Warlock’s Eye, the mask of the bounty hunter Death’s Head, Cosmo (who was last seen giving the Collector a kiss) and even what appears to be Stormbreaker, the hammer of fan favorite Beta Ray Bill. As cool as all that stuff is, there was one piece that really caught everyone’s eye:
These mysterious artifacts from the “Terran ocean” clearly seem to hint at the inclusion of Atlantis (and therefore Namor, the Sub-Mariner). Last week when this picture first came out, everybody loved it and many places ran with it and who could blame them. While a lot of people claim Marvel Studios wouldn’t reveal stuff like this through a Disney attraction, Marvel execs at the opening were very clear that some things in the collection were hints at future additions to the MCU, so while we don’t know which things are which, we do know some of them should be more interesting than others and a closer look at these artifacts reveals something VERY interesting.
The symbols on these artifacts, while a little hard to see, seem to share an incredible likeness to the Kree symbols written by Agent Coulson during the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. after he had been given a dosage of Kree blood.
This similarity could mean any number of things, so we aren’t taking it to the bank as a clear indicator of anything, but it is certainly very interesting. Could the blue-skinned Atlanteans of the MCU be descendants of the Kree? Could the Kree have made contact with and helped advance Homo mermanus during a trip to Earth (we know they’ve been around a LONG time)? Could it mean absolutely nothing at all? We don’t have an answer, but we do have a lot of questions! What are your thoughts about this potential link?
