Captain Marvel Easter Egg Teases Connection To 2012’s The Avengers


The new Captain Marvel trailer has given us a lot to process, and while many fans continue to take pleasure in such standout moments as Carol Danvers’ fight with an old lady and Nick Fury’s conversation with a cat, others are turning their attentions to subtler details, including a potential clue of what’s to come.

You may recall a clip from the latest set of footage which sees Captain Marvel and Fury flying a Quinjet. But what you may not have seen is that the plane’s wing displays a logo that fans have linked to P.E.G.A.S.U.S. This S.H.I.E.L.D. codename refers to the project studying the Tesseract in a facility located in the Mojave Desert. And since the MCU’s next movie will be partly set in California, there’s been some speculation that the action for this upcoming flick will ultimately take us to the same location that Loki would later infiltrate in 2012’s The Avengers.

Some have even gone as far to suggest that the Skrulls might themselves be trying to infiltrate the facility in an effort to obtain the Space Stone, which is almost certainly jumping the gun at this point, but either way, it’ll be interesting to see how Carol’s big screen debut will connect to the wider MCU, especially in light of the character’s eventual, much-hyped appearance in Avengers 4.

In particular, the film’s trailers suggest a strong buddy movie dynamic between Brie Larson’s character and Nick Fury, raising the question of why the latter has been so reluctant to call on the services of the saga’s most powerful superhero for all these years. We’ll presumably find out when Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8th, 2019.
