Brie Larson will appear in Avengers Endgame as Captain Marvel.
This will come as a shock for most fans, especially the die-hard ones of Iron Man and Captain America. While Chris Evans had already hinted at this conclusion that Captain America might die or call it quits after Avengers: Endgame when he put out a tweet last year stating that he is hanging up the shield. There have been many rumours about Robert Downey Jr.’s contract ending with Marvel Studios. So, this isn’t a far-fetched idea that Cap and Tony will either die defeating Thanos in Avengers: Endgame or hang their respective shield and suit after the war.
According to a report in BGR, Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, in a featurette of Captain Marvel ahead of a screening of the film Glass, revealed that Captain Marvel will lead the Avengers going forward. Well, that immediately begs the question that if Captain Marvel is the new leader then what happens to the existing ones – Captain America and Iron Man, who have lead the Avengers in the past.
