SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR MAY FOLLOW. YE BE WARNED.
I think it’s about damn time Marvel gave a woman her own superhero film, and with the end-credits scene from Infinity War, I’m glad it’s Carol Danvers.
Now, if you’re just a casual movie-goer and not a comic nerd, you may be unfamiliar with this hero. Gather round, and listen to Mummy Collectress, as she tells you a little bit about the awesomeness of Captain Marvel, and just what role she may play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
*This post contains heavy spoilers for the character of Loki, particularly in regards to Avengers: Infinity War. If you haven’t seen the film, kindly stop here and enjoy this gif of Tom Hiddleston. Delayed gratification is worth it, you guys.*
