Argos Avengers data backs a standalone Hulk adventure

Argos Avengers Endgame – a taste of their toy range

Leading UK toy retailer Argos have assessed the merchandise sales of characters in the popular Marvel franchise and discovered that arch-villain Thanos is more popular than Iron Man and Captain America. The most popular Avenger in the UK is Hulk, with over 115,000 Argos customers have searched for Hulk goodies so far this year and up to 12,000 people on the lookout for Avengers merchandise on the Argos website on just one day.

The top ten bestselling Avengers stars (and arch-villain Thanos):
1 – Hulk
2 – Thanos
3 – Captain Marvel
4 – Iron Man
5 – Captain America
6 – Spider-Man
7 – Thor
8 – Black Panther
9 – Ant-Man
10 – Groot
11 – Star-Lord

Paul Kinge, Senior Toys Buyer at Argos, said: “Sales of Avengers toys are set to soar over the coming weeks as fans flock to the new film. Despite his villainous role, it seems that kids (and grown-up kids alike) can’t get enough of the villainous, purple Thanos. However, even Thanos couldn’t defeat the mighty green one, showing that there could be appetite for a new standalone Hulk film.”

We think Mr Kinge is lining himself for a part!
