Captain Marvel postcredits scenes explained

first_img How to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe film in the right order Tags 21 TV and Movies What it meansIt would seem Captain Marvel was indeed at the other end of that pager, as everyone had assumed at the end of Infinity War. It also appears Carol survived the snap. In one of the last Captain Marvel scenes, Carol gives Fury an upgraded version of his pager, telling him to use it if he ever needs her to come back.So, is this an actual scene from Avengers: Endgame, a heavily edited version of a scene, or something filmed exclusively for the Captain Marvel postcredits scene? It’s difficult to say, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t exactly how Carol’s arrival on Earth plays out in Avengers: Endgame. Nevertheless, it was awesome. captain-marvel-tv-spot-thumbCarol takes her hero shot.  Marvel Scene 2: Cute and slightly disgustingWe start the scene with a tight front shot of Nick Fury’s desk from 1995. The nameplate simply says “N. Fury” on the front. His office appears to be completely vacated. The camera slowly zooms in, and Goose the cat enters the frame. Like all cats do, especially mine — a lot lately, annoyingly — he begins to cough up a hairball. After few seconds of heaving, he coughs up the Tesseract onto Fury’s desk. After a beat, the film ends.What it meansIn the movie, Goose the cat is revealed to be a Flerken. That’s an alien species that looks like a cat but can devour things with huge tentacles that come out of its mouth. During the movie, Goose swallows the Tesseract to keep it away from Star Force — the Kree’s Seal Team 6, led by Jude Law’s Yon-Rogg, which Carol is a member of at the beginning of the movie. If only they all knew what this actually was… 26 Photoscenter_img Comments Captain Marvel is a fantastic addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe of movies, with great performances, fantastic action, one of the best stories of any MCU movie so far and the real 90s independent movie feel. As expected, it also had two postcredits scenes. The first will probably get you even more excited about Avengers: Endgame than you already are, and the second is more of a humorous bookend to the film. Definitely stay for the first one. The second one is up to you. I will say this, though: the second one is a lot better than the second postcredits scene in Ant-man and the Wasp. And now, a huge, Quadjet-size spoiler warning if you’d rather go into the movie (and maybe Avengers: Endgame?) cold. Composite by Aaron Robinson  Scene 1: Carol Danvers, allow me to introduce you to…The scene starts with a closeup of Fury’s pager from the end of Avengers: Infinity War. It’s still beeping and Captain Marvel’s symbol is still on the screen. Suddenly the pager screen goes black. We then cut to Steve Rogers and Black Widow looking over some holographic images, still getting data on how many people are dead after Thanos’ snap. Marvel Cinematic Universe postcredits scenes, rankedRhodey then enters the room and tells them the pager is no longer sending a signal. We see Bruce Banner, who says whatever signal it was sending finally crapped out. nullCaptain Marvel just caught the train to the billion dollar club. Chuck Zlotnick/Marvel Studios “I thought we bypassed the battery,” Cap says. Replies Rhodey, “Well, we did. It’s still plugged in, just stopped.” Cap tells them to reboot it and send the signal again. Black Widow says the message was obviously important to Fury and to tell her the second they get the pager working again. “I want to know who’s on the end of that thing,” she says. Black Widow then turns to leave, and standing right in front of her is Captain Marvel looking pissed off. After a beat she asks, “Where’s Fury?” The scene ends. Share your voice Captain Marvel Marvellast_img read more

As the social media giant is dialing up its video ambitions, it is poised to more directly compete with Netflix among a growing pool of content buyers. Then again, this type of competition doesn’t always rule out board seats. Case in point: Disney CEO Bob Iger said this week that he would continue to serve on Apple’s board, even as the two companies compete for customers for their respective streaming services.

Creating opportunities for underprivileged women

first_imgWomen have come a long way after battling against all odds but still there are women, who are yet to take their first step. Le Meridien, in association with Joining Hands (a non-profit organisation), has come up with a new initiative that will train underprivileged women from economically weaker sections in the national Capital, to become a part of hospitality sector. The women will be trained in various sections within the hospitality sector, which would enhance their chance of acquiring jobs for a better livelihood.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The training will take place for six months where 25 women will learn the intricacies of different departments under the operational section of the hospitality sector. The sole aim is to help them transform into confident women, who can face all the challenges of life.Nidhi Bhasin, trustee of Joining Hands said: “We are very excited about this initiative- the hospitality industry offers huge opportunities for employment. The sector is manpower intensive and people also good exposure to health, hygiene and general grooming. The women participating in this initiative will inspire other women in their communities and will be drivers of change towards cleaner and healthier communities.” Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixShe added that these women will take back home the lessons taught in this profession and it will instill confidence in them to achieve their goals. Meneka Gandhi, Union minister for Women and Child Development was present at the launch and she emphasised on the need for encouragement.  She said: “The craftsmen of this country carry legacy of unique artworks that are very well known but they don’t know how to adapt to change. This is where we have to step in to help them improve their livelihood.” The course has been designed in such a manner that it will provide a hands-on experience to the women. The students will work in the hotel for experience and be later employed if they’re good at it. For others there will be a placement drive, which will give them opportunities to work in other hotels. When Millennium Post asked about the fee structure, Nidhi Bhasin said: “We’re charging a nominal fee of Rs 300 per month so that the women, who’ve joined the course, do not take this lightly.”Some of the students were present at the launch and they happily spoke about it. “I am excited about this course. Till now we have learnt the basics as the course started in January. We are being taught the basics of English language as well such as the usage of ‘has’ and ‘have,” said Samikhsha, a student of the pilot batch.Talking more about the potential that this sector has, Meena Bhatia, vice president, Marketing and Operations, Le Meridien New Delhi said: “There is a growing need to include women in the organised sector and the hospitality industry offers great opportunities for women to join the work force. In my experience, women do exceedingly well in the key areas of housekeeping, food and beverage service, food and beverage production and the front office.last_img read more

Majority of Global Merchants Fall Short on Card Data Security Compliance

first_img This story originally appeared on Reuters March 11, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Four out of five global retailers and other merchants failed interim tests to determine whether they are in compliance with payment card data security standards, putting them at increased risk of cyberattacks, according to a new report by Verizon Communications Inc.Businesses must be vigilant in maintaining security to remain compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), required by payment card issuers. Most of the companies have a tendency to run upgrades of security software and hardware only when they approach an annual compliance check, according to Verizon.The report, which gathered data in 30 countries by assessing more than 5,000 merchants including retailers, financial institutions and hospitality firms among others, found only 20 percent of those tested to be fully compliant less than a year after installing security safeguards.From 2013-2014, overall compliance went up by 18 percentage points for 11 out of the 12 payment data security standards.The report acknowledged the standards are only a baseline, an industry-wide minimal acceptable standard. The volume and scale of breaches in the past 12 months have shown that this is not stopping attackers, Verizon said.However, out of all the data breaches in the past 10 years that Verizon studied, not a single company was found to be compliant at the time of the breach.Credit and debit cards account for two-thirds of purchases by value in the United States. A further $2.17 trillion is spent via electronic methods, such as PayPal and mobile payments — many of which are ultimately backed by card transactions, the report said.(Reporting by Nandita Bose; Editing by Jim Finkle and Ken Wills) Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 2 min read Register Now »last_img read more
