With Avengers: Infinity War out on home video, fans have been combing the film for Easter eggs offering clues as to what Avengers 4 may hold. Given how Thanos ended proceedings with his snap, it makes sense fans are trying to suss out everything they can to determine how the sequel takes shape.
Well, some eagle-eyed Reddit fans have spotted a major Captain Marvel Easter egg from the battle scene where Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw come to Earth to face off against Tony Stark, Wong and Doctor Strange for the Time Stone.
The image shows Cull Obsidian, the Black Order's main muscle, wearing a piece of cloth hanging from his waist. The cloth appears to share the same red, blue and yellow color scheme as Brie Larson's Captain Marvel. The superhero persona of Carol Danvers was teased in the film's post-credits, hinting she could be the equalizer to the Mad Titan.
Of course, it's unknown if this cloth is directly linked to her, with some theorists positing the villain may have acquired it from her in a past fight. Some believe it could be pure coincidence, but given how Captain Marvel's solo movie is set in the past (and the prevailing theory that Avengers 4 might feature time-travel), the possibilities are endless as to when and if the creature faced off against her.
As it stands, fans will simply have to wait to see how the first-female fronted superhero flick from Marvel Studios factors in, with many anxious to see how Kevin Feige and company fashion Danvers as the new face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
