A few days from now, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, will cap off its franchise with Avengers: Endgame. The movie will be the culmination of 22 MCU flicks, and the sequel to the acclaimed Avengers: Infinity War. The heroes will, once and for all, face Thanos but this time, Brie Larson's Captain Marvel will be helping Iron Man and company defeat the Mad Titan.

Audi is also helping the Avengers in their new mission to stop Thanos. In a new tie-in ad dubbed as "The Debriefing," Captain Marvel, also known as Carol Danvers, is being, well, debriefed, of what she'd missed. CNet also posted about the video and described the scenario as a "crash course in the 21st century." From an explanation of who the Avengers are to posting food online to cellphones going from "big to small to big again, Audi's agent is apparently doing her best to keep the new Avenger up to date.

CNet added that "The Defriefing" is a simultaneous ad for Audi's E-Tron and the new Avengers film because both names "have been best friends since the beginning." Their partnership was evident when the first Iron Man featured an Audi' R8. This time around, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark will be driving the new E-Tron GT concept. In a similar fashion, Audi teased the car with an ad entitled "Cashew" during the Super Bowl. CNet was also able to test drive the E-Tron GT concept when it debuted at the LA Auto Show.

Going back, the agent helping Captain Marvel introduced the E-Tron as a way to "embrace the future" as she dangles its keys. In line with the modernization of almost everything, cars were also changed. The agent detailed several specs of the E-Tron, such as its "all electric" and "almost instant torque" capability.

With Danvers being a pilot in her previous life, the superhero asked if the E-Tron can "fly." The agent, who apparently was saved during The Decimination, calmly said that with the right driver, it could. All the E-Tron needed is a quick charge (which Captain Marvel did) to kick start its 204-mile range, and both stepped inside to find Goose at the backseat.

Ads like these are part of a generous package to hype the community. In this case, the last Avengers movie, and the new electric vehicle Audi has been developing. Today's technology may not be at par with that of Danvers' world, electric cars are still considered to be one of the little steps that we are making to slowly open the future and promote sustainable energy.
