It reveals a new team comprising the survivors from Thanos's "snappening" (Thor, Nebula, Iron Man, Rocket, Black Widow, Hulk, Captain America and War Machine) along with Infinity War absentees Hawkeye, Ant-Man and MCU newcomer Captain Marvel. From the background, the location appears like it could be the Quantum Realm or maybe it's just that — a fancy-looking background for the artwork.

There are many other interesting things that stand out. Captain America has done some useful self-grooming and back to looking his usual best. Black Widow and Hawkeye seem to have got haricuts of their own with the latter looking more and more like Ronin as was previously theorised. Captain Marvel is in her red-and-blue costume rather than the green one of Kree origin as we saw in the leaked set photos from her upcoming solo film.

But what deserves particular scrutiny is Hulk's new suited-up look which indicate we may be seeing Bruce Banner in a new avatar as Professor Hulk. Does that mean the two have found middle ground after Infinity War's power struggle? For those unacquainted with Professor Hulk, he is a separate personality and represents a more ideal and manageable version of Hulk.
