In the final post-credit scene of Avengers: Infinity War, the main focus was on the revelation that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury was contacting Captain Marvel after Thanos’ invasion of Earth. However, while Fury and Maria Hill are in their car they also reveal just exactly who they are going to meet, and it’s a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who might play a big role in Avengers: Endgame. That S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is none other than Cameron Klein. You have to listen carefully or you might miss Fury telling Hill to communicate with Klein.
It’s a detail many missed as we witnessed both Fury and Hill fall victim to Thanos’ use of the Infinity Gauntlet. If you pay attention, right before the SUV in front of Fury and Hill crashes, he asks Maria to put out a call to Klein for a rendezvous.
There is speculation that Cameron will have some important role in Avengers: Endgame. That is if he didn’t become a pile of dust of course.
Who is Cameron Klein?
Many will ask, who is Cameron Klein? And why is he important enough to have Nick Fury request his assistance?
Cameron Klein is a former S.H.I.E.L.D. technician. During the events of Captain America: Winter Soldier, Klein remained loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D. and Nick Fury when HYDRA infiltrated and attempted to take over the organization. In fact, Klein was the technician that refused the orders to launch the Helicarriers that HYDRA was planning to use to eliminate all dissidents to their rule. Klein refused the order even though Brock Rumlow had a gun pressed against his skull.
Klein tells Rumlow, “I’m not going to launch those ships. Captain’s orders.”
That does take some serious stones.
Thanks to the heroic actions of Sharon Carter, and the internal S.H.I.E.L.D. uprising he was saved from having a new hole installed in the back of his head.
But his role with S.H.I.E.L.D. and Fury didn’t end there. During the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron Cameron was the person who launched the lifeboats from the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier that Fury “borrowed.”
Because of his actions, he again found himself in a dangerous and life-threatening position as one of Ultron’s Sentries almost killed him. But thanks to both Maria Hill and Nick Fury, he was saved.
Klein and Avengers: Endgame
The post-credit scene from Avengers: Infinity War confirms that Klein is a top S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. It’s possible he’s third in command behind Fury and Hill. While it’s unclear if Hill actually sent the message to Klein, it’s possible, if he is still alive, he might be the acting head of S.H.I.E.L.D. with both Fury and Hill out of the picture.
We know from on-set photos that the Avengers will most likely be using Tony Stark’s B.A.R.F. technology and it’s more than likely they will also be using technology discovered in the Quantum Realm by Janet Van Dyne. Klein might be the key needed to connect the various pieces of technology and help the Avengers discover a method to defeat Thanos.
We know that Marvel doesn’t put anything in their films without reason. It’s safe to assume that Klein will play some role in Avengers: Endgame, and it might just be a significant one.
What do you think? How could Cameron Klein help the Avengers in Endgame? Could he be a key component in finding a way to defeat the Mad Titan? Let me know!
