The post-credits scene of Infinity War depicted Nick Fury sending a distress pager to Carol Danvers right before turning into dust. Captain Marvel will take place in the 90s and follow Carol as she meets Nick Fury at the time when Earth is caught between the alien Kree and Skrulls. We’re not sure what happens between the events of 2008’s Iron Man and Captain Marvel but something obviously did keep Carol out of superhero business for some time.
Captain Marvel is someone Fury looks up to when Earth gets threatened by a cosmic threat and Thanos certainly falls in that category. If Captain Marvel is heading back to Earth on Nick Fury’s message, it’s possible she might find Tony Stark on her way. Endgame could feature the two heroes sharing a lot of time onscreen, probably even Tony passing off the torch to Larson.
Another hero who shouldn’t be overlooked is Valkyrie. Although she wasn’t present in Infinity War, Tessa Thompson let the fans know that she did survive Thanos’ snap. This means that she could be with other Asgardian refugees who escaped the assault by the Mad Titan.
Kevin Feige has already confirmed Captain Marvel to be the strongest character in the MCU, which means that she’ll be given the biggest spotlight possible in Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame will hit the theaters on April 26, 2019.
