Rhodey got to be the one to ask Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) the pressing question of where the hell she’s been this whole time. Don Cheadle said his character is certainly wary of this stranger comin’ in hot with bold plans:
Fair enough. As Don Cheadle suggested to EW, it would be weird if they just immediately started following this stranger without testing her mettle. But we know Captain Marvel is up to that challenge, and she’s already been shown in other trailer shots to be part of the team that heads out to get the Thanos job done.
Here’s how that sneak peek scene played out, showing the initial tension in the room between Rhodey — although he was probably speaking for all of them — and Carol:
That’s when Thor took a bread break and tested Carol, in his way, ultimately saying of her: “I like this one.”
Captain Marvel has a healthy ego, but no ego is healthier than Thor’s, so it should be interesting to see them together in more scenes. She fed their egos with her answer, basically saying this planet was already covered so they didn’t need her help — until now.
In other trailer shots, Rhodey is also shown heading off into space — apparently for the first time — with Captain Marvel and the surviving Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Despite appearing to have a big presence in the movie, Don Cheadle doesn’t seem to know too much more than The Rest Of Us about how Avengers: Endgame will play out. At least, that’s what he told EW:
Don Cheadle said “they” — presumably directors Joe and Anthony Russo — would tell them this sequence would fold into that one, but they may change it and get rid of this whole other sequence. So the final three hour-plus runtime may include some surprises for the actors themselves, if certain scenes did or did not make the final cut.
