The Marvel conversation has been dominated by Captain Marvel and what her role could be in Endgame since the trailer for her upcoming movie dropped a few days back.
Even before the Captain Marvel trailer dropped, we had kind of assumed Brie Larson’s character would be fairly integral in the grand scheme of the Avengers.
Captain Marvel has already been confirmed to be the strongest character we’ve witnessed in the MCU so far, with abilities like flying, super durability and being able to shoot beams of energy.
Turns out there’s another extremely noteworthy ability in Captain Marvel’s arsenal, something that Samuel L Jackson revealed in a recent interview with ET Online.
He said: “She’s pretty much the strongest character — in terms of someone with powers are able to do things — in the Marvel universe.
“So, for Carol Danvers to be that person and for Brie to become that person, it’s gonna be a dynamite thing. I mean, [the Avengers] are up against some really, really tough odds right now – we saw throughout Infinity War – so now we know that we need something that’s as powerful as Thanos.
“And at some point, we’ll find out how powerful she is and all the things that she’s capable of. She’s one of the few people in the Marvel universe that can time travel, so… “
You read that correctly TIME TRAVEL. Pretty much every fan theory that has proposed how the Avengers can defeat Thanos in Endgame has relied pretty heavily on some kind of time travel plot.
Since the release of the new trailer, there have been other revelations in the Marvel world. One major one surrounding the theory that Captain Marvel is actually a skrull, the shapeshifting aliens that are invading earth in the movie.
In the new clip, we see Carol Danvers meet with a young Nick Fury and warning him of an impending invasion from the shapeshifting Skrulls.
The footage gives a further glimpse into the origins of Captain Marvel and seemingly shoots down a popular fan theory that she herself is also a Skrull.
Another big talking points to come from the clip is the return of Agent Coulson, who we sadly lost in the first Avengers film back in 2012.
Obviously Captain Marvel takes place before the majority of the other MCU films – except for Captain America: The First Avengers, which all happened during the Second World War, so Coulson’s reappearance is to be expected.
We’re pretty certain come Endgame time Captain Marvel will have a pretty huge part to play. Especially given the closing moments of Infinity War, just before Fury meets a pixely end we see him presumably sending some kind of message to the hero.
