Despite being released back in April, moviegoers haven't stopped debating the wild events of Avengers: Infinity War. The Russo Brothers did the impossible by balancing a giant ensemble cast, while providing a story that has both action and character-driven story. And the devastating affect of Thanos' snap (aka The Decimation) was a plot twist no one saw coming.
Fans were left to watch in horror as Marvel favorites faded into dust. This included Nick Fury and Maria Hill, who briefly appeared in the film's post-credits scene. One fan has figured out who they were going to see before The Snap, believing it could mean that character is returning in Endgame. And no, it's not Phil Coulson.
Redditor freezer_face posted about it on the social media site, after re-watching Nick Fury's brief scene in Infinity War. He and Maria Hill mention going for a meeting with Cameron Klein, a S.H.I.E.L.D agent last seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Perhaps he survived The Decimation, and will have a larger role in S.H.I.E.L.D. now that his colleagues have been dusted, and the surviving Avengers are in such dire need of help.
Cameron Klein is played by Aaron Himelstein, and has had two small roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far. He was a S.H.I.E.L.D. technician in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, who was in the control room when Crossbones and his HYDRA agents attempted to gain control. He ultimately stood up against Frank Grillo's villain, and survived the beloved sequel.
He was also involved in Age of Ultron's Battle of Sakovia, and very nearly was killed by the titular villain himself, before being saved by Maria Hill and Nick Fury. And when they left S.H.I.E.L.D., he remained a contact from within the organization. As such, it tracks that Hill and Fury would be trying to make contact during Thanos' assault and the Battle of Wakanda.
As a reminder, you can check out Infinity War's post-credits scene below, complete with the mention of Cameron Klein.
Nick Fury, Maria Hill, and S.H.I.E.L.D. in general have been largely missing in Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans (including Samuel L. Jackson) were bummed that Fury was left out of Civil War and Black Panther, so their surprise appearance in Infinity War was a welcomed change. That is, until they turned to dust before being able to grab much screen time. Luckily for fans of Samuel L. Jackson's cycloptic hero, Fury will return to the MCU in Captain Marvel.
