Warning: this post includes spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.
Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel wasn’t in Avengers: Infinity War, but the fan-favorite character was teased in the film’s post-credits scene, which also saw the return of Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Now, Art of VFX has released a brand new image from the movie, giving us a closer look at that moment.
Here’s a quick rundown of what happened in that post-credits scene: As people across the world begin disintegrating following the actions of the Mad Titan Thanos, Nick Fury quickly grabs a transmitter and sends a distress signal before vanishing himself. Audiences are then shown of a close-up of the device, which displays the Captain Marvel star symbol against a red-and-blue background, a clear sign that Carol Danvers has been called upon for help. You can check out the image from that moment below.
How and why Nick Fury and Carol Danvers know each other should be explained in next year’s Captain Marvel movie, which is a prequel set in the ’90s being released roughly two months before Avengers 4. Until then, Marvel fans can re-watch the post-credits scene in Avengers: Infinity War, which is currently playing in theaters.
Infinity War features a cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautisa, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Rudd, Benedict Wong, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tom Hiddleston, Benicio Del Toro, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Josh Brolin. Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
The currently-untitled Avengers 4 features a cast made up of many of the key players in Infinity War — alongside newcomers like Brie Larson and Evangeline Lilly — and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2019.

10 DC Comics Stories That Could Top ‘Avengers: Infinity War’
Now that general audiences have seen Avengers: Infinity War, nothing will ever be the same for the DC films. Avengers: Infinity War feels more like an event starring everyone’s favorite characters than a traditional movie, and it will be hard for Warner Bros. to replicate that feeling of excitement for their comic book movies. DC’s counter-part to Avengers, Justice League, didn’t achieve nearly the same level of success and now the studio has to think of a new plan to get their cinematic universe chugging along.
Fortunately, DC Comics has a huge repertoire of epic, personal stories to explore for cinematic potential. While Thanos may be more destructive than the villains in some of these stories, that doesn’t mean these adventures don’t result in real, destructive changes in the DC Universe. After forcing DC’s finest heroes to fight Doomsday and Steppenwolf, two of the publisher’s strongest villains, on the big screen so early in the cinematic universe’s history, WB may want to step back and focus on personal stories. Even if none of these plotlines make it to the big screen, and if they do they would all require some major tweaking, they are all excellent examples of DC’s finest work.
