Although Carol Danvers wasn't called Captain Marvel in her own solo film, there's a good chance that she might get the moniker in Avengers: Endgame instead. We think that Marvel Studios held off on giving her that name in Captain Marvel because of the significance it might hold to her future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and to Captain America.
There are a lot of parallels between Carol Danvers and Steve Rogers, and many worry that the latter isn't going to survive the events of Endgame, meaning that he's going to have to pass on his shield and title. Although a lot of people figure that Bucky Barnes or Sam Wilson will take up the title, there's a chance that Steve's death or retirement might lead to him passing the baton to Carol instead. Looking at the comics and hints in Captain Marvel, there's some indications that this might actually happen.
Check out our video below for more on how we think Carol Danvers will get her Captain Marvel title in Endgame.
Captain Marvel is definitely going to be an important part of the MCU going forward. The character's first solo film has almost earned $1 billion at the worldwide box office and will likely pass that tremendous milestone this week. Although there hasn't been any official announcement regarding a sequel, it seems pretty likely that Captain Marvel will get a follow-up sooner rather than later.
