The Marvel Cinematic Universe is coming to the edge of a precipice, as there are just two movies left in the franchise’s massively popular Phase Three. Years after the casting was announced, Brie Larson will finally make her Marvel debut as Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel— set to arrive in theaters in a matter of weeks. The title character has been teased as the most powerful hero in the MCU thus far, with wild powers reportedly including time travel.
News of Captain Marvel’s time traveling abilities was revealed due to Samuel L. Jackson who has been getting a bit chatty about the blockbuster ahead of its release. Carol Danvers’ ability to travel through time may have a major affect on Avengers: Endgame, so fans are eager for any and all information about that particular superpower. Now Jackson has once again teased her powers, saying:
Oops, he did it again. It seems that we should expect Carol Danvers to do plenty of time traveling, especially as it relates to her eventual appearance in Avengers: Endgame. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for both that and Captain Marvel to arrive in theaters before the public can fully understand Sam Jackson’s statements.
Samuel L. Jackson’s comments come to us from Total Film Magazine (via CBM), and tease that Nick Fury’s mysterious beeper from the Infinity War mid-credits scene would be addressed in the near future. Nick Fury heralding Captain Marvel was the final shot of Avengers: Infinity War, revealing that the cycloptic Marvel hero has a history with superpowered folks long before he showed up in Iron Man to recruit Tony for The Avengers.
This latest update shows that Carol Danvers’ time traveling abilities may give her the chance to move both forward and back in time. Furthermore, he seems to think that the pager might have gotten to Fury’s hands through that ability, rather than the main story of Captain Marvel. All that remains to be seen, as Marvel studios has been keeping its cards close to the chest ahead of the next two releases.
Time travel is a common fan theory for Avengers: Endgame, possibly providing a way for the surviving heroes to reverse Thanos’ finger snap of death (aka The Decimation). While many assumed this would be done through Scott Lang and his access to the mysterious Quantum Realm, Captain Marvel may also be able to go through space and time herself, further opening up the narrative possibilities for Endgame.
Captain Marvel will arrive in theaters on March 8th, and Avengers: Endgame will follow suit on April 26th. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
