    Unrelated to the video but what do you think about Carol and Thor?!
    Personally I just want to see a mini series where the play Truth or Dare and they always choose dare and it just keeps getting them in to trouble!

      That would be fun, especially because Captain Marvel and Thor are two of my favorite characters ( Thor is #1 on my list tho 😅 )

      No, they’re just friends. Why would Carol cheat on her wife, and betray her daughter. Anyways if there’s any romance it’ll be between Carol and Valkyrie, who knows maybe Thor will set them up

    I subscribe to the theory that a Tumblr user posed: Fury and Carol had a bet that Fury could make it a few decades (can’t remember if they said 20 years or 30) without calling on her. He nearly caved for the events of the _Avengers_ films, and was so annoyed that The Snap made him lose his bet that that’s why he said “Mother-”.

    He clearly did not press the button before because he knew the screenwriters had not yet started dropping hints about Captain Marvel yet, so it would a) ruin the surprise and b)No one would understand what the pager was if he had called her earlier.

  • tarquinnff3

    He hasn't pressed the button before now because they are just making it up as they go.

  • Evelyn Rojas

    Lol you went for three criteria while I think he had one: it was always part Z, because he has a,b,c, etc
    So while he is alive, there’s a chance. When something happens which he cannot plan to combat, he went for it. And you have to take into consideration the time it would have taken Marvel to get back, they would have already dealt with it.

    All of the problems you brought up in the video are EARTH problems. Although they are catastrophic on Earth they’re nothing to the scale of Thanos. Remember Captain Marvel has to protect pretty much the rest of the universe, where similar things could be happening on hundreds of other planets and she’s the only one to stop it. So she may of been called but never come or Nick Fury already understood this. Anyways she came back to fight Thanos because that affected the entire universe not just Earth.

    • Songs and Stuff

      Also Nick Fury realized the snap was happening, that’s why he called

  • whytho
    whytho 3 months ago

    in other words, all the criteria was met:
    1. Avengers couldn't stop Thanos
    2. Everyone is dusting and he can see people disappearing
    3. He is currently dusting himself

  • Eric McNeil

    I feel in that moment he felt that he was dying. Therefore he needed to call Carol. Otherwise he wouldnt be able to

    If he had pressed it for any of the examples you gave for when he should press it, they would have been resolved before she arrived

    At the 3:41 mark I just came up w a theory w out much evidence off the top of my head but like what if Fury just wanted to make sure shes alive so
    he can use it in the future like u explained in the video there r tons of times earth was in serious danger and he didnt use it

    Nick Fury didnt use the pager sooner because her movie didmt exist yet easy nailed it

  • Agustín Franco

    post endgame theory: Cap lived the rest of his life in secret in the past, with peggy. but nick fury, is THE spy, so he finds him anyway, the famous and missing captain america, but is looking much older, then, cap realises what he has to do, what he always did, time isnt linear. so he tells fury most of the story, where he was found in the ice ( that way fury finds cap) who to reclute for the avengers and how. and also, when to press the button.

  • Samantha Fisher

    My favorite theory is that Fury had a bet against Captain Marvel regarding how long earth can last without him paging her, I think they bet 20 years or something

  • Danyforever Knowwhatimeanuknowme

    Rick Riordan is really good, like really good I love that series. Heroes of Olympus as well. The Kane Chronicles is good too.

  • Oliver Whiteside
    Oliver Whiteside 3 months ago

    He never pressed it because captain marvel was not in the MCU

  • Big Guy617
    Big Guy617 3 months ago

    The pager is a last resort!! The Avengers were able to defeat Loki and Ultron without Capt Marvel. Thanos was the first to defeat them. That is why Fury calls for her now.

    The last part is time. I dont think she could get there in time to do anything.

    I honestly think Infinity War wasn’t the best time to call Captain Marvel. Half of the universe was dead. There were no more threats (that he could see).

  • Code Orange Films

    Or he was making sure that she didn’t die

  • Stockton Obermeyer

    He didn’t want to be accused for personally attacking her

  • Katie Eckert
    Katie Eckert 4 months ago

    It was cause he had a bet on how long he could go without carol. He almost made the 30 year bet before the snappening.

  • Rosalina Bloom
    Rosalina Bloom 4 months ago

    Also, another reason he may have called her is because the Avengers were split up. It's possible he may have believed e couldn't force then to get along.

  • Zatara

    Excellent criteria!

  • King Kymani

    Quick awnser (before watching) the heroes can handle it on earth and captain marvel is dealing with bigger threats like Thanos on other planets

  • Urbanxx
    Urbanxx 4 months ago +1

    The realistic, but not fun, answer is that the idea of Captain Marvel wasn't conceived yet for the MCU.

  • Omar Sangiovanni
    Omar Sangiovanni 4 months ago

    Because they probably did not think a movie with a female lead would make money. Then Wonder Woman happened.

  • jason

    The reason he didn’t press the pager before is because it’s always been hiding in the car

  • Maddy G
    Maddy G 4 months ago

    I really think that he would have pressed the button for winter soldier if the connection existed at the time.
    If you don't know who to trust calling in a person far removed from this hydra stuff would make a lot of sense.

  • Hidden City Pictures
    Hidden City Pictures 4 months ago

    I think that nick never pushed the button because the plot never told him to.

  • AT Watkins
    AT Watkins 4 months ago

    She was out to stop interplanetary genocide, so I think he felt it had to compare to that to be worthwhile

  • Alyssa Martinez
