There aren’t many heroes that managed to get the better of Thanos, but Carol Danvers was one of them. The Mad Titan’s look of total fear when Captain Marvel plowed through his mothership during the final battle of Avengers: Endgame was priceless and their subsequent one-on-one battle also saw the uber-villain rattled. However, he was ultimately able to best the heroine thanks to the might of the Power Stone. If they fought again, though, maybe things would go differently.
And this is something that Brie Larson reportedly really wants to happen. We’ve heard from our reliable sources – the same ones who told us the Guardians were in Thor: Love and Thunder before that was confirmed – that the Oscar-winning actress wants Carol to tussle with Thanos again in the MCU at some point. That’s all we know for now, but it seems Larson is pitching the idea of a rematch with the big bad to Marvel. Who knows whether they’ll go for it.
There has been talk of Thanos returning ever since Endgame, despite the Titan being reduced to dust at the end of the movie, bringing the threat he posed to the universe – and the Infinity Saga as a whole – to an end. But, given his popularity, it’s hard to believe Josh Brolin won’t be back in some form as Thanos somewhere in the ever-growing franchise. Especially as, like we all know, death is never permanent in the Marvel universe.

As for Larson wanting to face off against him one more time, this adds up with the star’s many comments about her belief that Carol is stronger than the villain, even saying that Thanos “cheated” during the two characters’ fight. So it’s no surprise that she wants to get another go at besting Gamora and Nebula’s evil father. Whether this could actually become a reality or not, though, we’ll just have to see.
Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel will return in The Marvels, coming to theaters on November 11th, 2022.
