Captain Marvel Uses Time Travel In Avengers: Endgame, Samuel L. Jackson Implies
Nick Fury’s actor Samuel L. Jackson let slip once again that Captain Marvel uses time travel in Avengers: Endgame. This might be a confirmation for diehard fans’ speculation, providing that Jackson’s not trying to deceive them. The actor has emphasized one major advantage that Captain Marvel possess in an interview with Total Film. Unlike the other Avengers, she can travel through time.
“I guess we might figure out that she can do things that nobody else can do” Jackson said (via: ComicBook). “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.”
Captain Marvel’s very first standalone film will hit the theaters a month before audience will witness Avengers: Endgame. The movie is set over 20 years before the events of the Avengers saga and it includes a non-linear story, assuming yet again that time will play a unique role.
In Avengers: Infinity War’s after-credits scene, Jackson’s Nick Fury reaches out to Carol Danvers thanks to a cosmically enhanced pager. Footage from the incoming movie has shown the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent using the original version of that pager. This could explain why she’s been missing for so long. After all, her story takes place in mid ’90s. Furthermore, this also could tie into the Quantum Realm in some interesting ways.
This is not the first occasion in which time travel is a major talking point in the Avengers saga. Time travel could be the only way to invalidate the effects of Thanos’ snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. In fact, even some hints in the trailer for Avengers: Endgame could link into the time travel theories. Captain America’s suit, for example, or even the title card The Russo Brothers have proven themselves to be creative blessing within the MCU, but they will likely officially confirm these theories until the film is released.
