New footage from the hugely anticipated Avengers: Endgame was shown during the CinemaCon event today in Las Vegas, and it suggests Captain Marvel may play a major role.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney showed “several minutes” of the movie, and one scene showed Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) telling the Avengers that they plan to kill Thanos. They might not have succeeded in Infinity War, but Captain Marvel says in the new footage, “Before you didn’t have me.” Captain Marvel the character is incredibly powerful, so she’ll no doubt be able to help the Avengers in whatever plan they’ve come up with.
Also in the new footage, Captain America (Chris Evans) loses his subdued attitude and bluntly states about Thanos, “Let’s get that son of a bitch.” ComicBook also saw the footage, and the site reports that the footage included Nebula saying she knows where Thanos is, and that Captain Marvel has a cocky attitude and believes Thanos has never faced someone as powerful as her. Captain Marvel also apparently talks about wanting to use the Stones to undo Thanos’ snap.
CinemaCon is an annual tradeshow where movie theatre owners get together. The major film studios usually attend and show footage of their upcoming film slate. The event is not open to the public, and there is no filming or livestreams, so reports are text-only.
