Anyone who thinks 10 years of the MCU and the final chapter of the Avengers is going to end with Captain Marvel coming in and just beating Thanos is nuts. I have no doubt that Captain Marvel is going to lead the next chapter of the MCU and have many of her own moments, but there is no way they are gonna just make her some kind of Deus Ex Machina which would be a disservice to both the OG Avengers and Captain Marvel.
