Captain Marvel Post-Credits Scene Was Directed By The Russo Brothers


Now that Captain Marvel co-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have introduced Carol Danvers to the MCU, the reins now pass to Avengers: Endgame helmsmen Anthony and Joe Russo to show us what’s next for Brie Larson’s character, and as it turns out, Carol’s solo debut has already given us one scene that was directed by the pair.

As those who’ve already seen the film can probably guess, we’re referring to the mid-credits sequence of Captain Marvel, in which the MCU’s most powerful hero arrives at the Avengers Compound in response to Nick Fury’s pager. Seeing how producer Kevin Feige has already confirmed that the scene was shot at the same time as Endgame, it comes as no surprise to hear that the Russo Brothers were the ones behind the camera. In fact, according to Boden, the Avengers: Infinity War co-directors were pretty much in charge of this clip from the start.

“It’s really a direct lead-in to their movie,” Boden told Empire. “They came up with the concept for it, and we said, ‘That sounds awesome.’”

Since Carol has been completely excluded from Endgame’s promotional footage so far, the Captain Marvel mid-credits scene is the first time we’ve been able to witness the character in present-day MCU. And while her appearance amounts to just a single, two-word line (“Where’s Fury?”), the sequence still tells us a fair amount about her involvement in Marvel’s Phase 3 finale.

For one thing, we know that Carol will be rocking an upgraded version of her old outfit that boasts some shiny new golden shoulder pads. But perhaps more significantly, seeing how Captain America is still boasting his Infinity War beard despite going bare-faced in all of the Endgame teaser footage, we can probably assume that Captain Marvel will be making her arrival early on in the story, if not prior to the movie’s events. Regardless, we’ll find out where the Russo Brothers take things from here when their next film hits theaters on April 26th.
