Avengers: Endgame Footage Description Reveals Where Captain Marvel’s Been


Though you wouldn’t think it just from watching the film’s Carol-free trailer and TV spot, Captain Marvel is set to play a major role in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame. But while it’s all well and good that Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have a powerful new ally on hand to turn the tide against Thanos, one of the biggest questions around Carol Danvers ever since she was first teased in the post-credits of Avengers: Infinity War is where exactly she’s been all this time. And in the Endgame footage that recently screened to Disney shareholders, it’s said that we hear an answer to this question from the heroine herself.

Twitter user Scott Ladewig ‏has offered a brief summary of the preview, which reportedly featured a scene of Carol interacting with her fellow heroes at the Avengers HQ. When James Rhodes asks her why she wasn’t around to prevent the Snap, Captain Marvel apparently explains that there are a lot of other planets out there that need her help, since they don’t have their own Avengers to protect them.

While this explanation gets us halfway to understanding why Nick Fury didn’t call on Captain Marvel sooner, two decades still seems like an awfully long time for Carol to stay away from her home planet. Still, don’t be surprised if both Endgame and the new Captain Marvel movie offer a little more context on her absence.

Speaking of which, Carol’s solo debut is hitting theaters on March 8th and believed to be on course for a strong opening weekend. After that, she’ll be joining up with her superhero peers and bringing Marvel’s current era to a close when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
