As Marvel Studios heads into its penultimate Phase Three movie, the production house has a lot of stories to unpack over the course of the next two films. Captain Marvel is expected to lead-in to Avengers: Endgame but if one fan theory ends up materializing, the Captain Marvel post-credits scene could end up answering one massive lingering question.
Shared by /u/woot_wooten, a new theory that has surfaced hypothesizes the arrival of
The theory says that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) would end up calling out to Strange and the post-credits scene would end with Strange "coming to" on Titan shortly before he drops the infamous "14 million futures" line.
On the surface, the theory makes a good amount of sense. We know that Strange viewed an incredible amount of futures and it's entirely reasonable he took the time to head back in time to tip someone off. It'd also explain how Fury knew what was happening immediately after The Snap and why he knew how to page Danvers in the Infinity War post-credits scene.
On the opposite side of the argument, Fury paging Captain Marvel seems like a big enough storyline that Marvel Studios would dedicate time to it within the movie itself, in contrast to confining it within a post-credits scene. If the pager explanation were to happen in the film itself, it'd be a pretty big revelation that Cumberbatch was able to film the scenes without anything leaking out. Even for his cameo role in Thor: Ragnarok, fans knew the Master of the Mystic Arts would be showing up beforehand.
