Inside the wildest 'Captain Marvel' fan theories that answer how Carol Danvers fits in the MCU
In addition to the altered origin story for Carol Danvers, it looks like Brie Larson's take on the character is also going to introduce a whole new angle of drama
After months and months of waiting, Marvel finally offered a glimpse into the world of Carol Danvers, teasing her 90s look and more in the recently-released 'Captain Marvel' photos. While most comics movie fans are still in the dark with regards to the storyline of the part-Kree, part-human Avenger and how she ultimately fit into the bigger scope of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, thankfully, Brie Larson's latest scoop about her big-screen debut will set some of the records straight.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, on the occasion of the latest promotional picture release, the actress teased how her origin story has been treated for Captain Marvel's big-screen adaptation.
“You have this Kree part of her that’s unemotional, that is an amazing fighter and competitive,” the Oscar-winning actress told the website teasing, “Then there’s this human part of her that is flawed but is also the thing that she ends up leading by. It’s the thing that gets her in trouble, but it’s also the thing that makes her great. And those two sides warring against each other is what makes her her.”
In addition to the altered origin story for Danvers, it looks like Larson's take on the character is also going to introduce a whole new angle of drama and internal conflict for the character - an element that might be able to uplight an outright comic book story into a true Hollywood blockbuster.
“That is something that is really exciting to me about this film: We did not cut corners on that stuff. Like, when it’s funny, it is funny, but also when there’s deep emotional things happening, it’s real," said Larson. "So I was able to bring some of those same things that I’ve brought to full dramatic roles into this, which I’m really proud of because I think it will really set this film apart.”
Now with all these new information rolling in, and the approaching theatrical release of 'Captain Marvel' coupled with anticipation surrounding the first female superhero-fronted movie and how it would lead into Marvel's biggest ensemble film, 'Avengers 4' it's only natural for fan theories to take over.
Unsurprisingly, that's what's been happening on social media. Check out some of the wildest fan theories floating around, explaining how 'Captain Marvel' might be able to solve that tiny mighty problem caused by Thanos' snap:

Captain Marvel gets the gauntlet, reverses time and then merks thanos in the first 5 minutes of A4 and the rest of it is just everyone moving into the avengers tower and doing grocery shopping together then going to bed at 9pm, the Russos personally told me to tell yall this— bucko (@incorrectbucko) September 5, 2018
