Captain Marvel, the heroine whose sudden importance to the MCU is a mystery in itself. Up until now superheroes in the MCU are usually introduced through subtle references or easter eggs that announce their arrival long before they eventually debut in a movie. Captain Marvel hasn’t been afforded that luxury.
Until Avengers: Infinity War next to nothing has been said about this superhero who’s supposedly the strongest Marvel hero to date in the current roster of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And then, with an awesome end-credits scene at the end of Infinity War, this hero that flies among the stars has suddenly been placed to the forefront of the conversation surrounding Avengers 4. But why?
Some fans are a bit peeved that she’s being introduced in such an abrupt fashion. They think Marvel is finding an excuse to make their first female standalone film so that the franchise will look as inclusive as possible rather than setting up something that’s legitimately important.
I have to admit, I’m a bit confused as well, but it’s a good confused. I think that Marvel’s secrecy around this character and her MCU debut is for a reason and I can’t wait to find out why.
I’ve definitely done a bit of research and obviously she’s a very powerful character. Until this point there hasn’t been any world or galactic-ending events that requires her immediate attention but with the arrival of Thanos and his successful Infinity Snap it’s time for her to become the hero Earth needs again.
I can’t pretend to act like I know what Captain Marvel’s involvement in Avengers 4 will mean. Heck, I don’t even know what’s going to happen in Captain Marvel. But I do feel that she’s going to be the key in The Avengers’ fight against Thanos. In fact, she may be that missing piece that’ll ultimately save the galaxy.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
