Captain Marvel has to answer many MCU questions that we have, and it seems like by the end of the film, we will know all the solutions for everything that is a mystery. There are a bunch of Nick Fury questions itself which include, “How he lost his eye?”, “What Happened between him and Carol?”, “Why has he never called Carol in situations of dire need?”, “What is the significance of the Beeper?” amongst many other questions.
Upon a visit to the set of Captain Marvel, producer Jonathan Schwartz revealed quite a few details from the film, and he addressed some key aspects of the movie when he was asked questions from Comicboo.com. Amongst the many hints he gave us, he teased that we will get some answers in the movie regarding the beeper we saw in Avengers: Infinity War, and we will even find out why Fury waited so long to activate it. Here’s what he said:
“I think it’s a combination of things. I think we will understand over the course of these movies why Fury makes the decisions that he does. He’s always a mysterious guy, and he always has his own reasons, but hopefully, we can clarify some of that for the audience.”
Nick Fury has been led SHIELD from the front for a long time and he has always been a few steps ahead. This he has learned over the period of time, as he has experienced it all out in the field. We know that he trusted someone and lost his eye over that, which does lead us to believe that things between him and Carol might not end well. This was even teased in the Captain Marvel prelude comic.
So, Fury having his own reasons for doing everything that he does may have decided to call in Captain Marvel only when he thought that he lost control over things. The activation of the Beeper was his final moment, and in that, he called in the cavalry to protect Earth from what comes next.
Knowing the fact that we will find out about the beeper and the whole deal between Captain Marvel and Nick Fury only makes things more interesting for the movie.
Producer Schwartz also laid out a general plot for the film as he said:
“You get a glimpse of her squad there, the Starforce, led by the Jude Law’s character. Very quickly along this journey they get dispatched on a mission to an alien planet to fight the Skrulls and over the course of that mission, Brie Larson’s character is captured by the Skrulls.
That puts her in contact with the younger, two-eyed version of Agent Fury, and the two of them together have to stop the Skrull plot on Earth. And at the same time, get to the root of Carol’s past. So that’s the bones of the movie.”
All this has been apparent through the trailers we have seen and we know that something in Carol’s past holds the Key to everything. That is what the film will try to unravel as the plot moves forward. For a movie that is just 2 Hours and 10 minutes long reportedly, Captain Marvel does pack quite a lot. The plot of the film is convoluted enough for us to come out really liking the film. Hopefully, Marvel has handled the different origin story that they took on really well.
