'Avengers: Endgame' TV Spot Showcases the Team's Greatest Weapon
In the latest TV spot for Avengers: Endgame — dubbed “No Mistakes, Kids” — we finally get a look at the Avengers’ greatest weapon in the fight against Thanos: a fully powered-up Captain Marvel, glowing in her binary form.
In the first few seconds of the TV spot, we see Carol Danvers powered-up on the lawn of the Avengers Facility at nighttime. (She almost looks worried here?) Then we see her flying high up in the air with her helmet on, presumably outside the planet’s atmosphere.
In Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers spent most of the adventure with a power-dampening chip at the base of her neck. As she put it, “I’ve been fighting with one hand tied behind my back.” In the final confrontation against Starforce and the Accusers, she unleashed the full extent of her cosmic power. In Marvel Comics, this is referred to as her binary form, in which she glows, can fly, and has a relentless amount of power and durability.
Thankfully, Danvers will bring that “overwhelming power” to the fight against Thanos in Endgame.
These scenes do contradict a supposed leak that popped up on Reddit earlier this month from French redditor u/seegsfw2twys, who claimed to have seen a test screening of the movie.
“The Avengers go to Thanos to fight him but are easily defeated,” the post reads. “Thanos holds Captain Marvel by the neck, but Thor saves her. She is depowered a lot. … Banner goes over to a weakened Captain Marvel and asks to scan her. She agrees. Tony and Banner look at the results and are stunned by it.” Danvers might bring her binary form to the fight against Thanos, but she might lose it moving forward in the MCU.
It would feel like an odd choice to depower Captain Marvel so soon after viewers only just saw her unlock her full potential in her standalone movie, but there’s a precedent in Marvel Comics for Danvers to have varying power levels. Nothing in the 20-minute previews allegedly being shown to select fans indicate this power nerf for Captain Marvel, so it’s possible this leak is totally fake.
Danvers will remain incredibly powerful for at least some of the movie, but who knows what else Thanos can do with the full might of all the Infinity Stones.
Avengers: Endgame will be released in theaters April 26, 2019.
