The hype surrounding the upcoming Captain Marvel film is real, as it will be Marvel’s first standalone film for a female superhero. We’ll also get to enjoy a fun '90s vibe and will finally (hopefully) find out whether Brie Larson's character is truly powerful enough to take down Thanos. For months now, fans have been speculating that Captain Marvel might be the key to defeating The Mad Titan, and Samuel L. Jackson—who plays Nick Fury in the MCU—just dropped a major spoiler that seems to confirm that.
While speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Jackson—who will appear in Captain Marvel—dished about Brie Larson’s character. "She’s pretty much the strongest character ... in the Marvel universe,” Jackson said. “So, for Carol Danvers to be that person and for Brie to become that person, it's gonna be a dynamite thing. I mean, [The Avengers] are up against some really, really tough odds right now—we saw throughout Infinity War—so now we know that we need something that's as powerful as Thanos. And at some point, we'll find out how powerful she is and all the things that she's capable of.”
Jackson added, “She's one of the few people in the Marvel universe that can time travel, so ..." Talk about a casual spoiler drop!
Since Avengers: Infinity War’s release in April 2018, fans have been confident that all the superheroes we saw turned to dust at the hands of Thanos would be brought back somehow in Avengers: Endgame, with many believing the Quantum Realm would allow for time travel. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has also said that Captain Marvel is the most powerful superhero ever introduced in the MCU, so it’s not shocking to learn she can time travel ... even if some of us would have rather discovered that while watching the movie.
Captain Marvel arrives in theaters on March 8, 2019.
