Captain Marvel is a huge hit with over $559 million at the worldwide box office since it opened in theaters last weekend. This is great news for Marvel with its first female-led film that was the bridge between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. If you’ve seen the film or trailers, then you should know that Carol Danvers is definitely a powerful superhero. She’s so powerful that Nick Fury paged her when everything was falling apart in Avengers: Infinity War. Now Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige reveals that after Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel will be leading the MCU.

Kevin Feige talked about Carol Danvers leading the MCU in an interview featured in Captain Marvel: The Official Movie Special.

“When we found out that Brie Larson might be interested in joining our world, we had a number of meetings,” Feige said. “She was a huge fan of the character in the comics. One of the highlights of my career at Marvel was introducing her at Comic-Con and having her come out on stage and stand there with literally almost everybody else from our movies. There she was at the forefront, and it was a great foreshadowing – not just for how audiences are going to embrace Brie as this character, but also for how Captain Marvel is about to take the lead and be at the forefront of the entire Cinematic Universe.”

Official Synopsis: The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”

Avengers: Endgame is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from the screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.

Captain Marvel will group up with the remaining Avengers in Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters on April 26, 2019.
