We will get to witness the strongest superhero of all time, i.e. MCU’s Captain Marvel. Kevin Feige has claimed multiple times that she is the most powerful MCU her we have ever seen. It has also been reported that she can move planets with her immense strength. Her Photon Blasts are pretty effective as seen in the trailers, and her abilities get totally amplified when she goes Binary. But the trailers could not have shown us the full set of abilities that she has.
But, it seems that Captain Marvel in the MCU has gained a new ability altogether. From what we know, she can absorb energy, fly at supersonic speeds, survive in space and vacuum, has a 6th sense/ a precognitive ability and can control gravity around others as well! But according to Samuel L. Jackson, she is someone who can also time travel? To have a power like this could change the entire course of the MCU.
Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Uncle Sam revealed an important aspect of Captain Marvel’s powers i.e. Time Travel. He said:
“[Captain Marvel is] pretty much the strongest character — in terms of someone with powers are able to do things — in the Marvel Universe. 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…”
Well, this could mean two things. Either Captain Marvel has gained a new power that allows her to travel through time at will, or she uses the Quantum Realm to do so. Her being able to access the Quantum Realm at will would make much more sense. Kevin Feige has mentioned that there are aspects about the Quantum Realm which will come into play in this film, so perhaps that is how she would travel through time.
Jackson hinting Carol’s ability to Time Travel may also hint the fact that her arrival in Avengers: Endgame will be because of Time Travel. We have been asking that where has Captain Marvel been all this time in the MCU, but it seems that it is the matter of hopping through different periods of time. Let’s see how Marvel would play with this because Time Travel is going to be a key aspect in the next Avengers film. If Captain Marvel can do it at will, the Avengers would get a big asset in their arsenal, but before all that we need proper explanation of how this would be possible.
Carol Danvers is a very different character than all the other superheroes that we know. In an Interview last year, Brie Larson described the nature of Carol Danvers and how she is different from the other Superheroes that we have come across till now.
“I think she has an ego, but in a healthy way. She doesn’t have an unrealistic expectation of herself – she just owns that she’s really good and really skilled, which feels good to play. She also has an incredible sense of humor, makes fun of herself, makes fun of other people and has no issue if someone makes fun of her. [She’s] probably the most dynamic character that I’ve ever played. We’ll see what the movie is, but as of now it’s been the most range I’ve ever played in a character. I’ve had to go through every emotion possible with her…That’s what I want: I want to see complicated female characters. I want to see myself, which is not a simple person. I surprise myself constantly by what’s happening and what’s coming up, so hopefully that’s what comes out on screen.”
