Seriously, how downbeat would it be otherwise? Comic book stories don’t work that way, especially not Marvel. There has to be a good ending. This new clip, which features Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers-Captain Marvel-reveals that yes, the survivors are ready to do exactly that: Get their friends back and take down Thanos in the bargain.
It’s easy to guess what’s going to happen in Avengers: Endgame. Thanos (Josh Brolin) snapped away half the universe, so the remaining Avengers are going to find him and try to reverse what he did.
The clip is just under 1:30 and in it several of the remaining Avengers (Thor, Captain America, Hulk-Bruce Banner) as well as Captain Marvel are formulating their plan.
The interesting twist, if there is one, is the way Danvers jumps in to assume a leadership role, agreeing to the plan in a blunt, forthright way.
And she gets pushback, too as War Machine (Don Cheadle) tries to snap her back, asking where she’s been before now-a question the audience would like to answer as well. «There are a lot of other planets in the universe,» Danvers says, «and unfortunately, they didn’t have you guys.»
The clip ends with Chris Hemsworth in full Thor mode, gravely approaching a completely unintimidated Danvers and calling his weapon, Stormbreaker-which doesn’t ruffle her at all. «I like this one,» he says.
We get it, actually.
