** WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR CAPTAIN MARVEL **
As entertaining as Captain Marvel is for himself, the new superhero movie is thrilling for many viewers, especially because of its association with Avengers: Endgame, the eager awaited one the continuation of the Infinity War movie, released just weeks after the release of Brie Larson against the Skrulls.
And yes, at the end of Captain Marvel, fans will definitely have a better idea of what they expect from Endgame, and more specifically how Infinity The Great Cliffhanger of the war will be disbanded in April.
First, but a refresher. In 201
Captain Marvel of the '90s spins the clock back decades before the Avengers unite for the first time, the Infinity Stones barely sparkling in the eyes of a sky – but the film does explain the back story behind the pager as we do seen in Infinity War, and why Fury has not used them yet (a question that Jackson has his own theories on).
Fury used in the film (well, 1995) was a pager a few times before Carol (Larson) confiscated it, and did not return it until the end of the story, after she was kissed with it. Technology had upgraded.
"I upgraded it," Carol tells Fury. "Range should be at least a few galaxies."
However, at first she refuses to give it up, which fools Fury: "What, do you think I'll call you?"
"ONLY for emergencies," she insists.
After that, Captain Marvel flies away with the Skrulls to find a new home (a possible story for a sequel, who knows?) And leaves Fury on Earth – and gives Carol's strict command that he will not call her, unless he really needs it. Maybe it's no surprise that the rage was held off until people literally disintegrated in the streets.
And apparently, the pager plot is recorded in the early moments of the endgame, with Captain Marvel's first post-credits scene in which the Avengers stumble upon Thanos' deadly finger snap Revolt are presented.
In the scene, the pager can be seen in a brace connected to an external power source at Avengers headquarters, while Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) discuss their te rrible defeat.
"This is a nightmare," says Cap.
"I had better nightmares," she replies.
Along with Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner and Don Cheadle's War Machine, while a 3D ad shows a list of missing (ie people who were dusted by Thanos), the remaining Avengers realize that the pager does not receive his signal sends out more – and Black Widow is determined to get it working again (if Banner has been hanging up for a while), if only to decode the final act of Nick Fury.
"I want to know who's on the other end of the line," she says, asking her to retransmit the signal.
However, it has already come through, and suddenly Captain Marvel appears in the background threatening, "Where is the rage?"
It's a great trick to unite Captain Marvel's budding friendship between Carol and Nick with the fun of "Heroes meets other heroes" of Avengers movies – and it tells us something about endgame we did not know before.
First of all, assuming it's a scene from the finished movie, it's likely Captain Marvel will appear early in the movie's narrative – we're gue after a few cold, open scenes following other characters, we come to this exchange in the Avengers base, which seems like these characters are appearing for the first time because of their topic of conversation – and Carol may need some time to approach her new ally trust that the only people she was close to are nowhere to be found.
Who knows, maybe we've even seen some of the classic Hero vs Hero nonsense based on previous Team Up movies to show Carol's powers in front of her. Eventually, she decides to trust the remaining Avengers ,
In this post-credits scene, we can also see that Carol has not aged much since the time of the Captain Marvel movie – her hairstyle is a little different, but apart from that for almost 25 years she did not really care – what suggesting that rumors about a travel-time plot could actually have some foundation (unless it ages a bit more slowly due to its kree biology, as Captain Marvel mentions, that their adoptive species live alone).
How Captain Marvel will fit into Endgame's story is more up for debate, but due to her level of accomplishment (where she easily destroys a kree bombing with one hand and flies through the vacuum of space), she definitely does be a worthy addition to the remaining heroes.
You also give the power of their powers derived from the all-important Tesseract (aka the blue-glowing cube from some of the Marvel movies), a connection to the Infinity stones that Thanos used to pull off his big trick from.
The Tesseract was truly the space rock, one of the first to be added to Thanos' glove, and it strengthened Captain Marvel – so who can not say she could not use the same force to destroy him? Just as Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) used her Infinity Stone skills (albeit temporarily) to destroy the Mind Stone in the Infinity War?
Whatever the truth, is the wait of just seven weeks between the release of Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. 19659005] But somehow we can not help but feel that this delay always looks like Carol Danvers was ghosted by Nick Fury in 24 years.
