Avengers Endgame: SURPRISING fact about Captain Marvel’s powers revealed by Brie Larson

The Marvel blockbuster is now on the final countdown to release, and lands in cinemas in the UK on Thursday.

It’s been a very long time in the making; with principle photography on Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame taking place at the same time.

Larson’s Carol Danvers will be seen joining the Avengers, two decades on from the events of her solo movie – released last month.

Carol is famously now the most powerful superhero in the MCU canon – but Larson didn’t know quite what that meant at the time.

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on her US chatshow yesterday, the star revealed that the full details of Carol’s powers weren’t known when her first scenes for Endgame were being shot.

Scarlet Johansson said: “She came on set while – I don’t think there was a script for Captain Marvel – but they were shooting it like, tomorrow.

“Which is kind of like the MO of Marvel-land! But I think it kind of worked?”

“I was very stressed about it,” Larson added.

“They were like, ‘what are your powers?’, and I was like, ‘I don’t know!’

“‘I’m not sure where I end up with my origin story, sorry.’”

We’ll know exactly what role Carol will play in the resolution to the story when Avengers: Endgame opens later this week.

It is widely expected to be the biggest movie of the year, and potentially the biggest movie of all time.

The first reactions were revealed by critics in the US last night – and are almost unanimously emphatic in their praise.

Full reviews, meanwhile, will be published at 11pm tonight, GMT.

Endgame won’t actually be the final movie in the current phase of the MCU, however: that honour goes to Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is out in July.

Avengers: Endgame is out on Thursday in the UK.
