In case you’ve been maintaining with the plague of fan theories within the months since Thanos snapped his fats purple fingers in Avengers: Infinity Struggle, then you definately’re doubtless conscious that point journey will in some way be concerned in our heroes plan to save lots of the universe.
However, earlier than we get there, Marvel has a very completely different film deliberate for us set within the ’90s staring Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury. As we all know from the comics, Captain Marvel may be very highly effective. And, followers have theorized that there are a selection of the way she might help the Avengers defeat Thanos. On the finish of Avengers: Infinity Struggle, we see Fury web page Captain Marvel within the seconds earlier than he turns to mud. However the place has she been this complete time? And the way is she going to assist?
In a brand new interview with Leisure Tonight, Jackson let slip a fairly vital element about Captain Marvel that had not but been confirmed within the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
She’s just about the strongest character—by way of somebody with powers are capable of do issues—within the Marvel universe. So, for Carol Danvers to be that particular person and for Brie to change into that particular person, it is gonna be a dynamite factor. I imply, [the Avengers] are up towards some actually, actually powerful odds proper now—we noticed all through Infinity Struggle—so now we all know that we’d like one thing that is as highly effective as Thanos. And sooner or later, we’ll learn how highly effective she is and all of the issues that she’s able to. She’s one of many few individuals within the Marvel universe that may time journey, so…
Assuming he is proper, that is a fairly enormous element. If Captain Marvel can time journey, that makes issues a lot simpler for the Avengers. That might imply that Fury—in the long run of Infinity Struggle—might be paging Captain Marvel in a unique time. Is that why he is utilizing a pager of all instruments? If she travels by way of time to reach after the dusting, it may probably imply that she may journey again to the start of the Infinity Struggle to assist the Avengers up to now set up towards Thanos with a greater plan (or a minimum of one that does not end in half the universe getting killed).
Her capacity may additionally align with different time journey theories. We have already established that Captain Marvel might be highly effective sufficient to outlive within the Quantum Realm, which might imply she may in some way hyperlink up with Ant-Man (who bought trapped there in his personal post-credit scene this summer time) to assist her in her struggle.
