Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019. It takes place in the 1990s and is an origin story for the title character.


Feige said of the 1990s setting that they “wanted to explore a period before Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury had any idea about any of the other heroes and crazy stuff going on in the world.” Speaking to EW, Feige confirmed that the film will “announce that Carol Danvers was that first hero that Nick came across, so … she could be the singular hero,” in the film.

Feige also said that there would be a good mix of ’90s action movie nostalgia and cosmic space visuals: “There are definitely homages to our favorite ‘90s action films within Captain Marvel … The action elements [of] Terminator 2. That’s about as iconic as you get, looking at kind of those cool street level fights, street-level car chases, and fun stuff like that. That being said, much of the movie takes place in outer space, as you might think a Captain Marvel movie would.”

The Captain Marvel movie will also feature both alien races of the Kree and the Skrulls, meaning we could see some interesting MCU developments that align with the Secret Invasion comic, as referenced above.

AVENGERS 4 avengers infinity war characters feature So, how will a hero saving the world in the 1990s come into play during a time set in 2019? Judging from Nick Fury’s pager, it’s very possible that he paged her in the 90s and that she has the ability to time travel. We won’t know exactly how Carol and Fury’s relationship will play out until we see Captain Marvel, but it’s easy to assume she tells Fury, if you need me, page me.

If Carol can time travel, that could help some of the remaining Avengers go back in time and re-set the stage for Thanos’ invasion. Doctor Strange clearly saw a winning outcome in his “end game” when he gave Thanos the Time Stone. Did he see the disappearance of half the universe as the one thing that would inspire Fury to page Carol? Thus getting her involved in the fight?

It’s hard to say how it’s all going to play out, but Carol clearly has a key role to play in Avengers: Endgame, especially if Feige is calling her “the strongest character we’ve ever had.” Could she be the one to wrangle the Infinity Gauntlet from Thanos and snap her fingers so everything is put right again?
