Hype has been steadily growing for the upcoming Captain Marvel, and that's partly because fans just can't wait to see how this new superhero will help defeat Thanos and restore the equilibrium in Avengers: Endgame.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated in the past that Carol Danvers will be the most powerful MCU superhero by far, and while that might make her sound as though she'll be appearing as a near-godlike character -- ready to defeat the Mad Titan and restore order as quickly as Thanos halved the population of the universe -- in an interview with Screen Rant, Feige seemed to discourage fans from perceiving her that way.
When asked by Screen Rant, "Captain Marvel's nearly omnipotent [...] How do you keep the character grounded and vulnerable in future installments as her power grows?" Feige responded, "I think, as with some of the other characters you've mentioned, there are no characters — certainly no Marvel characters — that are invulnerable and that are immortal. They can all be killed at some point as Loki says to Thor in Avengers 1. So we may see that at some point, introduce that at some point."
Nevertheless, in the upcoming films, there's little doubt that Captain Marvel will display a variety of powers, such as photon blasts, which were shown in the trailer, flight, superhuman strength and evidently, the ability to travel through time.
Early reviews of the film have noted that Danvers has a few surprises in store for audiences and that there's little doubt that this superhero is the most powerful. Thankfully, however, it seems her wide array of superpowers won't hinder the character in future films and she'll continue to grow in a very human way, just like all the most beloved MCU heroes.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Algenis Perez Soto as Att-Lass, McKenna Grace as a young Carol Danvers and Annette Bening in an undisclosed role.
