As speculation mounts on how Captain Marvel connects with Avengers: Endgame, despite being set over 20 years in the past of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Samuel L. Jackson reiterates previous claims about the MCU superhero.
In a print interview with Total Film magazine, Jackson echoes previous comments that Carol Danvers is capable of time travel, setting up her appearance during Endgame after receiving a page from Nick Fury in the post-credits scene for Avengers: Infinity War.
"We might figure out that she can do things that nobody else can do," teased Jackson. "She can time travel so maybe she can get ahead or behind or whatever, and figure out what all that is. The fact I have the pager 20 years later - it gets addressed in an interesting sort of way."
While many fans have assumed time travel will play a significant role in Endgame, Jackson's comments directly contradicted several popular fan theories about the upcoming movie. Whether Jackson's claims about Carol Danvers' abilities prove true have yet to be seen when Captain Marvel opens in theaters everywhere in less than a month.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, 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 and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
