Carol Danvers Will Encounter An Infinity Stone In Captain Marvel


It’s been a big week for Captain Marvel reveals, which means a big week for Captain Marvel fan theories as well, and in a new piece from Mashable, we have the intriguing basis for further speculation.

The publication got the chance to visit the set of Carol Danvers’ solo debut, where they saw an excerpt from the film’s third act. The sequence, featuring Captain Marvel and Nick Fury, is described as follows:

As the pair prepare to fight their way off an alien spaceship (which Jackson cryptically described as belonging to ‘a doctor from Carol Danvers’ past’), Carol instructs him to ‘take the Tesseract, leave the lunchbox’ while she runs off to buy him some time.

The Godfather reference aside, there’s a fair amount to discuss from these few lines, but let’s just focus for now on Carol’s reference to the Tesseract. Given the film’s place in the MCU timeline, there’s definitely something rather fitting about the Space Stone showing up in Carol and Nick’s adventure.

If you’re in need of a recap, the Tesseract was found by one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s founding members, Howard Stark, after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. The relic would eventually become the focus of the organization’s P.E.G.A.S.U.S. project, which ended with Loki stealing the object in 2012’s The Avengers.

The question is therefore raised of whether S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Skrull infiltrators like the villainous Talos are aiming to take the Tesseract for themselves. What’s more, it’s worth remembering that the Infinity Stones will be of crucial importance to Carol’s second MCU outing, Avengers: Endgame, suggesting that the character’s early encounter with the Space Stone could ultimately prove significant in the Avengers: Infinity War sequel.

Then again, the object’s inclusion might amount to little more than a quick Easter egg. We’ll find out either way when Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8th, 2019.
