SALT LAKE CITY — Samuel L. Jackson might have just revealed a major clue about how the character Captain Marvel will help the Avengers in "Avengers: Endgame."

What’s going on: Jackson said in an interview with Total Film Magazine that Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) uses time travel, which can be helpful for the group of heroes, who are dealing with the aftermath of Thanos (Josh Brolin) eliminating half of the world with his epic snap from "Avengers: Infinity War."

  • "I guess we might figure out that she can do things that nobody else can do," Jackson said, according to reports on the interview. "She can time travel so maybe she can get ahead or behind or whatever, and figure out what all that is. The fact I have the pager 20 years later — it gets addressed in an interesting sort of way."

Flashback: Back in January, Jackson said Captain Marvel may be the only one who can help the Avengers.

  • "(The Avengers are) up against some really, really tough odds right now, we saw throughout 'Infinity War,'" Jackson said, according to Mashable. "So now we know we need something that’s as powerful as Thanos, and at some point, we’ll find out how powerful she is and all the things that she’s capable of. She’s one of the few people in the Marvel universe that can time travel."

Similar: Larson said fans can expect to see her finally make her appearance to help the Avengers.

  • "I'm coming up," she said, according to ComicBookMovie.com. "They've pager-ed me. So maybe it's going better. I'm just part of this larger journey, but I do feel like it's natural that at a 10-year mark there'd be some endings and some beginnings."

New teaser: Disney dropped a new teaser for "Captain Marvel" on Sunday night during the Grammy Awards. The teaser, called "Ready," highlighted Captain Marvel’s tough upbringing that eventually leads her to become a superhero of epic proportions.

Release date: "Captain Marvel" arrives on March 8. "Avengers: Endgame" drops April 26.
