Warning: the following contains spoilers for Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson.
After the initial end titles for Marvel’s new film Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson, fans are treated to two post-credits scenes, and yes, they do tease Marvel’s highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War follow up, Avengers Endgame.
The first post-credits scene surprises fans with the Avengers themselves. We pick up with Black Widow and Captain America at the Avengers compound as they are looking at death toll counts from all over the globe caused by Thanos’ decimation of half of the universe in Infinity War. They’ve already found the pager Captain Marvel left behind with Nick Fury which James Rhodes interrupts to inform them has stopped working.
There’s an air of desperation here as Black Widow and Captain America convene with Rhodes and Bruce Banner around the pager, trying to make sense as to why the pager has stopped working. They’ve already bypassed the battery. Captain America offers the simple solution of turning it off and turning it on again, telling Banner to reboot the pager and send the signal again. Black Widow asks Bruce to tell her as soon as they get a signal, she wants to know who Fury was paging. To her (and our) surprise she turns around to see Captain Marvel has already arrived back on Earth and is standing behind her. Captain Marvel asks “Where’s Fury?” before the scene cuts to black.
It’s possible this scene could be set just prior to the events of Avengers: Endgame, or could actually be plucked from the film itself similar to how the mid-credits scene from Ant-Man featured Captain America and Falcon with a captured Winter Soldier from Captain America: Civil War.
The second post-credits scene is much lighter and fun compared to the first. It begins in Fury’s office we saw at the end of the film which is now empty. Goose jumps into and frame onto Fury’s desk and heaves a few times before vomiting up the Tesseract we saw the Flerken swallow earlier in the film.

Here’s Every Hero Who Appears In The ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer
Today, Marvel Studios released the first official trailer for Avengers: Endgame and revealed which heroes will likely be on hand for the re-match against Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe's population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos' decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.

Iron ManAfter being spared by Thanos, Tony Stark can be seen adrift in space with limited supplies and oxygen. Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.
The First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos' decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans' contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.
Natasha Romanoff, a.k.a Black Widow, returns for Avengers: Endgame and it appears she's been assessing the consequences of Thanos' actions. Standing by Captain America's side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.
Although Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can't fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.
Nebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos' wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos' and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.
The new trailer also confirmed that Hawkeye will assume the Ronin mantle when he returns and the death of family is the likely reason for his new identity. It appears Natasha will attempt to recruit her old friend when they embark on a mission to defeat Thanos, but whether or not Hawkeye agreed to join them remains to be seen.
After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers' front door.
While the Hulk was absent from the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Bruce Banner managed to make a brief appearance. The brilliant scientist could be seen assessing the list of casualties of Thanos' decimation and it has clearly taken an emotional toll.
