At the end of Avengers: Infinity War, the heroes of the MCU threw everything they had at Thanos (Josh Brolin)… and they lost. “All that, for a drop of blood.” They will mount a comeback in Avengers: Endgame, and they’ll have a secret weapon on their side: Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). In fact, some are saying that the introduction of, hands down, the most powerful being in the Marvel universe is going to easily tip the scales in favor of The Avengers – which doesn’t make for compelling drama. When CinemaBlend had some time with Joe and Anthony Russo this week, we asked about the difficulty of bringing in an overpowering superhero like Carol Danvers and how they overcame it in Endgame. Joe Russo started off by telling us:
That’s a great tease. Casual fans don’t yet know how powerful Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) can be, but they’ll be keen to all of her superhuman abilities by the end of her origin film, Captain Marvel, which drops on March 8. The character is one of the few who theoretically could go toe-to-toe with Thanos and live to tell the tale. But the Russos know that a straight-up slugfest would likely bore audiences, as Anthony Russo elaborated:
The classic “break them down, to build them back up.” That tone is coloring virtually all of the early Avengers: Endgame marketing. The survivors of the Snap are figuring out what to do next. But they are reeling. They’ve all lost people – especially Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). They need vengeance. Maybe Carol can help them get it.
