At the end of Avengers: Infinity War we watched half of the universe fall to dust. As it was happening as saw Nick Fury pull out a futuristic pager and make a call to someone beyond the stars. That someone, according to the logo we see, is Captain Marvel. We’re going to meet Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in her solo movie this March but according to Kevin Feige to Entertainment Weekly we can expect her to play a big role in Avengers 4.
“She is more powerful than any character we’ve introduced thus far,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige tells EW. “So that alone tells you that there’s a reason Nick hit that button at the end [of Infinity War], when he realized that they were up against something far bigger than they had ever been up against before. And having her on your side is hopefully going to change the balance of power in a way that they desperately need.”
We watched several members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have their minds blown when the reality of the universe began to sink in. Aliens were a thing, science that looks like magic, all of it can be a lot for someone to take in. Nick Fury seemed to already know all of this when the MCU began but in Captain Marvel we see his world change. According to Samuel L. Jackson meeting Carol has a profound impact on Fury’s life.
“This is a mind-changing, attitude-changing moment for him that leads him to become the person that we know,” Jackson says. “He [now] understands that there are these other things out there. He understands that they’re not all enemies, and we do need to find allies who have specific kinds of skills that humans don’t have. And trying to convince people above him is a difficult task because they haven’t seen it or experienced it.”
We’re not only going to get to see a time period we haven’t explored yet in Captain Marvel but we’re also going going to see very different versions of Nick Fury and Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) which is going to be a lot of fun.
Summary: Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
Captain Marvel, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, will also star Brie Larson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Samuel L. Jackson. The film is set for release on March 8th, 2019.
