Samuel L. Jackson revealed an interesting bit of news about the character Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) during an interview with EW. If it is true then it is a most needed ability we need in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame.
According to Jackson, Carol Danvers can time travel. This is what he said in the interview:
“She’s pretty much the strongest character — in terms of someone with powers are able to do things — in the Marvel universe. So, for Carol Danvers to be that person and for Brie to become that person, it’s gonna be a dynamite thing. I mean, [the Avengers] are up against some really, really tough odds right now — we saw throughout Infinity War — so now we know that we need something that’s as powerful as Thanos. And at some point, we’ll find out how powerful she is and all the things that she’s capable of. She’s one of the few people in the Marvel universe that can time travel, so…”
Danvers does not have the power to time travel in the comics. She has super strength, she can fly, she’s strong, she has the ability to absorb energy, and she can shoot photon blasts from her hands. But time travel is something very new.
If this is the reality then it will change the whole game, she could just go back and rewrite the whole history of the MCU. She could go back and put an end to Thanos when he didn’t have all that power. If she does have the power to time travel, Marvel is going to have to explain a lot of things.
I think Jackson is just joking around with the fans. I don’t like the idea that she can travel through time. There have to be some boundaries. If there’s going to be any kind of time travel, let it stick within the Quantum Realm. Perhaps he could mean that she is the only one that has the strength and ability to withstand the act of travel through time?
Endgame screenwriter Stephen McFeely has said that there will be no time travel in the movie, so unless he’s lying, we can cut that out of the equation for good.
