Exciting times are on for MCU fans as both Infinity War and Black Panther did exceedingly well in 2018. With the release of the trailers for both, Captain Marvel and Endgame recently, speculations on both the films have never been higher. Before the end of Phase 4 in the MCU, there are still many questions left to be answered.
We already know that Captain Marvel is being played by Brie Larson and that Ryan Fleck and Anna Biden directed the film. The film has a lot of star power with Lee Pace, Annette Bening and Jude Law. We can’t wait for the twists and turns in the film but today we will discuss 4 theories about Captain Marvel that are already confirmed (and 3 we hope don’t happen)
Confirmed: Not an origin story
From the trailer of the film, we know that Carol Danvers is already Captain Marvel who runs into trouble while training as a test pilot due to which she crash landed on Earth.
During the explosion, she gained her powers, thanks to radioactive energy caused by the war between the Skrulls and alter. It’s yet be seen how the pieces of Carol’s memory will come back together.
Hope Not: Nick Fury is a Skrull
We all know that Skrulls can shapeshift and it’s entirely possible that the version of Fury we see in the film is actually a Skrull.
However, this would be a bad idea as it would prevent fans from understanding the relationship shared by Fury and Carol. Fans would love to see the two of them bonding with each other and giving us an insight as to why Fury trusts her so much.
Confirmed: That Grandma
A great part of the hysteria encompassing the principal Captain Marvel trailer was centered around the way that Brie Larson punches an elderly woman situated on the train. Accepting the MCU wasn’t endeavoring to downplay senior maltreatment, most fans immediately understood that the grandmother wasn’t actually who she seemed, by all accounts, to be at first.
In the trailer, we see the old woman take the punch yet then recuperate and growl at Captain Marvel. She’s clearly a Skrull, and an all-out battle follows among her and Carol Danvers.
Hope Not: Cap Marvel’s Memories
One fan theory expresses that Captain Marvel may really be a Skrull. In the event that the Kree embedded recollections in Carol so as to make her an all the more amazing warrior for their side, at that point it would bode well that the Skrulls would endeavor to remove those recollections to influence her to acknowledge who she really is.
We see Captain Marvel in the trailer hanging topsy-turvy with what resembles a shadowy Skrull figure to one side. Blue lasers are pointed specifically at her head on the two sides, which shows they’re attempting to get into her set out toward some reason.
Confirmed: Early Model Quinjet
We saw an early model Quinjet fly into space – something current ones can’t do – in Captain Marvel, and the second trailer gave us more understanding with respect to what may go on there. Fury takes Carol Danvers to a mystery P.E.G.A.S.U.S. base in the desert, where the two take one the of the Quinjets and Danvers flies it out.
With a P.E.G.A.S.U.S. logo on the wing, these early models were coordinated effort between S.H.I.E.L.D. what’s more, NASA, so we don’t know the amount all the more ground-breaking they can be.
Hope Not: Captain Marvel S.H.I.E.L.D.
The stupendous inquiry in the majority of this is: How will Captain Marvel end? One thought is that she finds her actual character (whatever that is), leaves the Kree and Skrulls to battle among themselves, and joins Nick Fury at S.H.I.E.L.D.
At the end of the day, it’s a non-finishing with the plan being that the MCU just expected to present another character that could spare Tony Stark from approaching fate alone in space.
Confirmed: Agent Coulson Returns
Back in May, Clark Gregg affirmed that he’d return as Agent Coulson in Captain Marvel, saying “We’re seeing an adaptation of Coulson that’s, what, 8 or 9 years, 10 years before Iron Man.” With Nick Fury, we don’t know how Coulson will fit into the story or what the levels of leadership inside S.H.I.E.L.D. will be.
As will different characters in the motion picture, Coulson will be carefully de-matured. Gregg includes: “He’s somewhat of another person in S.H.I.E.L.D. He’s much more youthful. It’s the most punctual we will have seen him.”
