It has been one hell of a year for Carol Danvers. On top of appearing in her debut solo film that made a hit in the box office, she also was given a major role in Avengers: Endgame, which became one of the biggest movies to hit the theatre. Suffice to say, the character’s going to be a building block for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That said, the character was almost assigned a smaller role in Endgame. It was meant to be introduced much later than initially thought.
Anthony Russo’s take on the topic
The filmmakers had one edit of the film that didn’t reveal her as the space-faring hero. This dismissed the possibility of revealing the character as the space savior of Tony Stark and Nebula. Sometime later, a tidbit revealed by the team shipped with the Avengers: Endgame digital release.
“Sometimes these movies, because of the vast number of characters in these movies, sometimes things can feel a little confusing, if you go too far down the road without sort of clocking…” Anthony Russo mentioned about having Danvers appear later in the movie.
What the writer has to say
The writer added that it may have been odd to have the orange light appear on Tony’s face. He mentioned that was because many fans not knowing what the light was supposed to represent.
“It could be confusing, but the idea will be that there’d be orange light on Tony’s face, he’d see something, the audience wouldn’t see it, and only then would you reveal what happened there,” he suggested.
News about Captain Marvel 2
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will presumably begin development on Captain Marvel 2. It is a movie that has a high chance of being Marvel Studio’s Phase 5 slate. Though the boss Kevin Feige was mentioned in the San Diego Comic-Con, no clue about a Phase 4 sequel was known.
