How Captain Marvel Should Have Ended

Captain Marvel was the last film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit the big screen before Avengers: Endgame kicked off the summer box office with a bang. Though the film does a solid job introducing us to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as the Air Force pilot turned cosmic superhero known as Captain Marvel, it’s held back slightly by feeling like a set-up for her character to make a big impact in Avengers: Endgame. Thankfully, the folks at How It Should Have Ended figured out how to take care of this much more quickly.

game of thrones ending

You knew it would come to this, George. You, a typewriter, and a blank page. For the past eight years, you’ve had the excuse that Game of Thrones was dominating your time and energy, and then you decided to step away from executive producer duties during season 4 to focus on finally finishing The Winds of Winter, the next book in your A Song of Ice and Fire series. But you still haven’t, George. And with Game of Thrones ending with its ongoing eighth season, you have no excuses.
