SPOILER-FREE: Captain Marvel Gets Ready for ‘Endgame’ with Audi
Editor’s Note: This article contains minor spoilers for Captain Marvel but not Avengers: Endgame.
Today, Marvel’s latest guaranteed blockbuster Avengers: Endgame hits theaters, and it’s the first time that Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel will appear alongside the larger Avengers team. After (presumably) being off-world for more than 20 years following the events of Captain Marvel, she needs some help getting caught up on everything that’s happened since she left. It seems as if S.H.I.E.L.D. and Audi are more than ready to clue her in.
Automotive brands historically have supported the Marvel pantheon of superheroes, from Acura in the first Avengers film to Lexus in Black Panther. I was ready for Captain Marvel to get the same treatment, but was disappointed. There were plenty of cars in the actual film, with Nick Fury driving era-appropriate Chevrolet vehicles and Carol Danvers leaning on her classic Ford Mustang. However, we didn’t see Carol or any of her friends in a car commercial.
To make up for lost time, Audi released a digital short called “The Debriefing” starring Captain Marvel and the government agent charged with updating the hero on everything she’s missed. She covers things like the events of Avengers: Infinity War, avocado toast, smartphones, Snapchat filters, and the war on gluten. When Carol expresses frustration with modern life and suggests that she’ll keep her dated tech, the agent flashes a pair of Audi keys and leads her to the next room.
Check out what Carol Danvers thinks of the all-electric Audi e-tron SUV, and catch a glimpse of her favorite flerken sidekick, in the full commercial below.
Audi vehicles were out in full force at the Avengers: Endgame premiere and the brand reports that one of its supercars will show up in the film as well. I won’t tell you which one or where, because I don’t want to get in trouble for even the tiniest of spoilers.
I’ll be heading to the theater with everyone else to see the movie tonight. On my drive, I’ll make sure to follow the government agent’s advice and remember that speed limits are still a thing, no matter how excited I am.
