Avengers: Endgame is set to come out later this week, and it’s probably the right time for HISHE on Youtube to release their take on how Captain Marvel should have ended.
While a lot of praise has definitely gone on the way of Captain Marvel, I myself really thought there was a lot of problems with the film—some of them having been covered in the video. For one, they poke fun at the fact that Nick Fury had lost his eye to Goose, and it totally undermines his speech to Captain America in The Winter Soldier about trusting people. There’s also the thing Carol Danvers allowing the Kree to limit her powers despite not really having any good reason to let them.
And of course, HISHE also does a take on what would have happened if Nick Fury called Captain Marvel during the events of the first Avengers. While Jackson explains that it was because Fury thought the Avengers could handle the problem themselves, I think the more BTS reason is that Marvel Studios hadn’t thought of the connection to Danvers in the first place. I do have to say that Fury calling Danvers at the end of Infinity War definitely hyped up her arrival to the MCU.
For now, Captain Marvel is expected to come back for Avengers: Endgame. Admittedly her role isn’t as large as some would have expected, but she definitely does shine in the film and has her own great moments.
