Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame throughout.
Avengers: Endgame was full of some different looks for many of the Avengers. Steve Rodgers saved that glorious beard but thankfully America’s Ass remained. Black Widow grew out her own ombré, Hawkeye got an angry mohawk, and the Hulk was dressed like a presidential candidate wanting to be more relatable to avocado-toast-eating-millennials. While we appreciate—or squint—at everyone’s new looks, Captain Marvel’s rich-aunt-who-would-like-to-speak-to-the-manager haircut is worth starting a dialogue.
When we’re introduced to the Avengers and others dealing with the aftermath of the snapture 5 years later, Carol appears on screen with her new hair, now looking more like the current Carol in comics. It screams that wealthy aunt who has had her best friend living with her for the last 10 years, and you call her aunt too. Unfortunately, you only see Aunt Carol every leap year or when it's an absolute emergency. She does bring the best gifts when she visits though, that gift being her.
She’s the aunt who threatens to write a stern Yelp review if service isn’t up to par. She would know, she’s been to a lot of planets, none of which the Avengers were on, but a lot of planets still. She’s well traveled so she does know a thing or two. Plus she’s been keeping you and your little friends safe from things you’ll thankfully never know about. Captain Marvel’s haircut says check yourself before I take down your entire ship by flying right through it like its made of butter churned by the ass cheeks of Captain America. A well-traveled aunt who means business.
