Truth be told, she's way stronger than Thanos but I don't know how she could have reasonably beat him if he could use the Infinity Gems. As we learned from Infinity War, stopping him from closing his fist prevents him from using the Infinity Gems at all and she was totally going to break his hand to stop him doing so.Finally got to see this movie.
Not gonna lie, I mainly went to see it, because I wanted to watch the new Spider-Man trailer, and I heard it contained massive spoilers
I really like that Captain Marvel basically goes toe-to-toe with SIX STONE Thanos, and only gets knocked away because of a power stone sucker punch. Whoever is the next big bad definitely needs to scale up, because her introduction to the battlefield single-handedly tipped the scales, lol.
