Warning! SPOILERS for Captain Marvel
Brie Larson's Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel joins the surviving heroes as they travel in space in new Avengers: Endgame fan art. After officially debuting in the Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck-directed Captain Marvel, the strongest hero in the MCU will soon team up with Earth's Mightiest Heroes and their allies as they take down Thanos (Josh Brolin) and restore order and peace in the universe after the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
Marvel Studios is keeping plot details for Endgame tightly under wraps. Despite releasing a trailer and a Super Bowl spot, it's still difficult to gauge how things will shake out in the Phase 3 capper with both previews revealing barely anything narrative-wise. The description for the latest footage for the film shown at Disney shareholder meeting, however, gives fans more context as to what to expect in the movie. According to it, Carol sits down with the heroes at Avengers HQ devising a way to find Thanos - confident that they'll win this time with her on their side. This becomes the inspiration for a brand new fan art visualizing the team traveling to space.
Courtesy of digital artist ultraraw26 on Instagram comes an illustration featuring Captain Marvel co-piloting a spaceship with Rocket (Bradley Cooper) with Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and War Machine (Don Cheadle) for Endgame. The creator's caption adds a fun twist to it with the Guardian of the Galaxy supposedly warning those aboard his vessel to not throw-up - a callback to the time he, Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) did an extensive space jump ending with the sapling vomiting in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

With Captain Marvel's mid-credits scene having already established how Carol comes in contact with the Avengers back in Earth, Endgame won't have to spend that much time resolving this particular subplot - a clever creative move considering that the film is expected to have quite an elaborate plot. This way, the movie can quickly move forward with the heroes' task-at-hand locating Thanos and finding a way to reverse the catastrophic effects of The Decimation. Whether that involves traveling back in time or into the Quantum Realm (or both) remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to see the core Avengers reunite and work with newer heroes such as Carol, Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Rocket.
Considering that Captain Marvel can fly in outer space on her own without the need of a ship, she'll probably just do that in Avengers: Endgame. Although given her Air Force history, there's a chance that she won't pass up the opportunity to pilot a vessel. What's more interesting in this artwork is seeing more grounded characters Captain America and Black Widow flying to outer space. Among the remaining heroes from Infinity War who are not cosmic-based, only Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) have gone to space. Assuming that a version of this visual come to fruition in the movie, fans will definitely be on the look out on Steve's reaction, especially considering that he's a man from the 1940s.
