Samuel L. Jackson Reveals Captain Marvel Can Time Travel

The comments on Reddit and YouTube show the fans are more impatients than ever.

While there's mentions of the shapeshifting Skrulls, who look set to be the main focus of the film, we haven't yet seen Ronan The Accuser return in any of the trailers.

Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8.

Well, it turns out that isn't the case, with Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige confirming to MTV that "Guardians will happen". What's more is we also get to see more playful chatter between Brie Larson's Danvers (slash VERS slash Marvel?) and Samuel L. Jackson's (young and two-eyed) version of Nick Fury and let me tell you, I am here for the back-and-forth sass. Let me put it another way: Captain Marvel is pretty good. So, for Carol Danvers to be that person and for Brie to become that person, it's gonna be a dynamite thing. It's a perfectly timed preamble to Avengers: Endgame, in which Captain is poised to play a large part in the narrative, hopefully rescuing nearly everyone from Thanos' snap. The film comes from directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson, Mississippi Grind), with Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, and Djimon Hounsou among the cast. At this point, Samuel L. Jackson's Fury is just a low-level S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, and Carol's arrival on Earth is his first encounter with the odd and extraterrestrial. She's standing there telling me that she came from some planet. We also see a glimpse of Jude Law training Carol. I mean, look, we can be anyone, and we're stronger than the rest of them.

Captain Marvel is sure to kick off what should be a rollercoaster of a 2019 for Marvel Studios. Can Captain Marvel actually time travel, or is there more to it then that? We weren't there when he said this quote, and things like tone and inflections are often lost in transcriptions.
