Captain Marvel Endgame Prequel Audi Car Ad

This ad for an Audi electric car features Captain Marvel being caught up on earth developments that have taken place during her time away faring through space.
It’s amusing.
It features (minor spoiler) more Captain Marvel dialogue and screen time than Endgame itself.
It may also explain why our opposition leader in Australia thinks it takes eight minutes to charge an electric car.

I totally expect to go and see Endgame again on Saturday.
