7. Finding the pager (Avengers: Infinity Wars)

OK, so for those who haven’t seen Captain Marvel (which, by the way, you totally should), then I’m going to warn you that this may contain a little spoiler. So, if you’re not into spoilers, then please flip to the next slide.

You’re still here? OK, here it goes.

So, in Captain Marvel, Vers takes Fury’s texting pager and gives it an “upgrade.” That upgrade makes it so he can use his texting pager to summon her in case of emergencies since she will be super busy with other, superhero stuff.

Before her triumphant debut, we got a glimpse into what would be waiting for us in Captain Marvel at the ending of Avengers: Infinity Wars. In this post-credit scene, Fury, sensing that this is one of those emergencies to call Vers, sends a distress signal to the then-unidentified individual before he, and everyone around him, disintegrates into dust.

It was an intensepost-credit scene, as those who haven’t brushed up on the Marvel history had no idea who Fury was summoning. As it turn eventually is revealed, he was contacting Captain Marvel, who wasn’t on the planet before Thanos sent it into an ashy hell.

Thankfully this, and the post-credit scene after Ant-Man and the Wasp, would tie into the events of Avengers: Endgame.
