How Captain Marvel Will Alter The Course Of MCU

We all saw how Nick Fury called Captain Marvel before turning into dust post-Thanos’ snap and this establishes one thing: this woman is incredibly powerful. But how powerful is she exactly?

As revealed by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Carol Danvers is powerful enough to alter the entire course of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as we know it.

Feige spoke to EW about the upcoming film which releases just before Avengers 4 next year. When asked about what exactly Carol Danvers will bring to the MCU, he said the following:

“She is more powerful than any character we’ve introduced thus far. So that alone tells you that there’s a reason Nick hit that button at the end [of Infinity War], when he realized that they were up against something far bigger than they had ever been up against before. And having her on your side is hopefully going to change the balance of power in a way that they desperately need.”

This also confirms that Captain Marvel will be the game changer for the Avengers in their battle against Thanos. With veteran Marvel actors like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans most-likely departing from the universe, the MCU will need new faces as it moves into its fourth phase. This could be the reason why Feige is taking Captain Marvel so seriously.

Apart from Captain Marvel, Black Panther and Spider-Man are the two other characters who will take the helm of MCU on their shoulders in the next phase. It is also widely believed that Doctor Strange will also play a significant role in MCU’s future.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Mckenna Grace, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Kazinsky, Lashana Lynch, Colin Ford, Kenneth Mitchell, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, Ana Ayora, and Chuku Modu.

The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8th, 2019.
