After seeing Infinity War, Leslie Jones asked who Captain Marvel is — then Brie Larson answered

Leslie Jones live-tweeted reactions to her first watching of Avengers: Infinity War was revelatory in many ways, but one of the biggest things we learned didn’t come from the SNL-er, but from an Avenger herself.

**SPOILER ALERT: If you can really spoil a film that everyone has seen, then be warned: Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War lurk below!**

Earlier this morning (or perhaps late last night), Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers, aka Brie Larson, took to Twitter to answer Jones’ question about the film’s jaw-dropping post-credits scene. Poor Jones, dealing with the traumatic shock of watching Nick Fury crumble to dust, was dying herself to figure out just who the S.H.I.E.L.D. director is calling in our time of need. 

Turns out Captain Marvel’s not home!

Of course, Twitter being a gift at times, responded impressively, but likely none as impressively as digital artist BossLogic, who, a mere six hours later, gave us a darn good visual to accompany Larson’s joke. 

Captain Marvel's pager. Yeah, that’s good stuff right there, folks. 

While it’s high comedy on Larson’s end to imagine such a scenario as Captain Marvel not knowing it’s Fury on the other end of the cosmic red phone, it’s also a scenario we very much hope doesn’t play out when Avengers 4 comes rolling around next year (presumably with a more catchy name). Because let’s just say we’re holding out a lot of hope for Captain Marvel doing some serious savioring come May 3, 2019.

And of course, two months prior, we’ll see Danvers become the hero we so desperately need when Brie Larson finally appears as Captain Marvel, in theaters Mar. 8, 2019, hopefully with a new pager number.

Avengers: Infinity War is available for home entertainment now.
