Brie Larson's Captain Marvel movie on his own merits Avengers: Endgame – and thanks to one of Marvel's trademark postheaways credits scene teasers, they will not be disappointed.
Marvel's two post-credits scenes and how they relate to the Marvel universe.
But beware – if you have not watched the movie yet, a few spoilers lurk beneath …
The first post-credits scene picks up more or less exactly where we left things at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, when did movie's post-credits scene had Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) call Captain Marvel on a souped-up pager.
Now the pager is sitting inside Avengers HQ, where rolling computer displays show the increasing number of people at the end of Thanos's "snap" to the horror of the remaining Avengers (the above shot from the Endgame trailer takes place in the same location ).
"This is a nightmare," Chris Evans's Captain America says.
Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow is even more downbeat: "I've had better nightmares," she says.
Fury drops it at the end of Infinity War. Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner has had his signal going for a long time – but today it's finally cut out, and Black Widow insists that they'll get it back online.

After all, sending out the signal what Nick Fury's final act, so it had to help – right?
"I wanna know who's on the other end of that thing," she says. She gets her answer when Brie Larson's Captain Marvel appears behind her.
Finally summoned back to Earth, Carol is sporting a slightly different haircut – a long time ago.
"Where's. Fury. "
Hopefully they can break the news to …
The impression given by this post-credits teaser is that it's actually features in the scene: Don Cheadle's War Machine.
Still, you never know: Doctor Strange contained a similar teaser scene from Thor: Ragnarok that ended up being quite different in the finished movie, so it could be a little bit cut ends up in Endgame.
Considering there's just six weeks between the releases, though, it's probably is to endgame clip.
Captain Marvel post-credits scene two
The second and final Captain Marvel post-credits scenes is more of a comedy coda to the film, as has become traditional in recent years.
At Nick Fury's empty desk (see the movie proper concluded) we see pet alien / cat Goose jump on the table and begin hacking up a hairball.
Instead of hair, though, Goose finally unloads the Tesseract, the powerful cube-shaped energy source which has unexpectedly returned to Captain Marvel's plot: The First Avengers, the first Avengers movie and Avengers: Infinity War (where it returned to its Infinity Stone form and taken by Thanos).
In Captain Marvel, of course, the Tesseract is a good few years away from its importance to the Avengers, making it possible for the movie to be a MacGuffin only saved Goose swallowed it for safekeeping.
Basically, this scene connects the dots between Captain Marvel and the Avengers, explaining how SHIELD got his hands on the Tesseract again while adding the little dark endgame sneak peek.
Now, Goose has survived the snap as well …
