While we don’t know much about the plot yet, there’s plenty of that the movie could draw from. Back in May, Marvel president Kevin Feige more or less let it slip that we would see from Carol Danvers to her superhero mantle, so it’s safe to say that she’ll be a central character in the buildup to the Infinity Wars.

Granted, her own movie is only coming in 2019, but we could catch a glimpse of her in Spider-Man: Homecoming since the two of them are great friends in the comics. And what if finally led the way to a bridge between the MCU and Marvel’s Netflix shows?

All of this to say that there’s a lot of reasons to look forward to Captain Marvel.
