Marvel boss Kevin Feige responds to glaring plot hole in ‘Captain Marvel’

Why didn't Nick Fury just page Captain Marvel in 'The Avengers'?

Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, has responded to fans who have been pointing out a significant plot hole in the company’s latest film Captain Marvel.

In an interview with SlashFilm, Feige was asked why Nick Fury didn’t page Captain Marvel during the events of the 2012 Avengers movie when a wormhole opened over Earth and began an alien assault.

Feige offered two explanations: “Well, I’d say two things. One, she does say it’s gotta be a real emergency, right? The other thing I’d say is how do you know he never hit it? How do we know he never pushed it before? We’ve never seen him push it before. That doesn’t mean he never did.”

In 2016, Feige answered a similar question about why Doctor Strange wasn’t called into action during the events of The Avengers.

“There are people inhabiting the same world that are stopping buildings from falling down, robots from doing this, aliens from doing that – these people in this movie are stopping inter-dimensional forces from wiping out all of reality,” he told Collider.

“So although it doesn’t necessarily come up, we’ve always assumed that the sorcerers have bigger fish to fry when they hear there’s something in a city or there’s a bank being robbed.”

Meanwhile, Feige recently revealed that there won’t any news on further MCU adventures until the release of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home.’

Until then, we’ll eagerly anticipate the release of Avengers: Endgame, and you can find all the details on that film here.
