If you’re into comics or the movies based on them, you’ve probably had the argument with a friend or family member about who is the most powerful super hero – I’ve definitely done it.
Thankfully, the question has been answered by Endgame and Infinity War co-director Joe Russo, who shared his thoughts on the matter in a special feature included with Endgame’s Digital HD release.
Joe and his brother Anthony Russo, who was his co-director, spoke about Captain Marvel’s introduction into the Avengers with Joe saying Carol Danvers could put Thor in his place.
“It’s interesting seeing the Avengers with Captain Marvel. I think that she dimensionalizes them in a really great way. Just from a pure power standpoint and what her abilities are,” he said.
“If you’re talking about a collection of heroes, and you’re gonna go face Thanos who we believe still has the gauntlet.”
“She is as powerful, if not more powerful than Thor, and you suddenly have hope again. Because they all know what happened at the end of the last movie, he walked through them like they were paper.”
Anthony added that when Carol showed up she made the Avengers feel “like kids” and after being beaten so terribly, it’s Captain Marvel who arrives to put the bully back in his place.
The brothers also added that Carol is just as worthy of power as Thor and revealed she’ll be flexing those muscles in Phase IV of the MCU.
