The children of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous understood the heroism of the Avengers in Endgame and even share the most famous superhero quote.
Warning: SPOILERS for Jurassic World: Cretaceous Camp season 3.
Children in Jurassic World: Cretaceous Camp manufacture Avengers Endgamefamous slogan, “Whatever is needed,” theirs in season 3. Still trapped on Isla Nublar and running for their lives from dinosaurs, Darius (Paul-Mikél Williams), Brooklynn (Jenna Ortega) and Yasmina (Kausar Mohammed) are separated from their friends when Dr. Henry Wu (Greg Chun) brings mercenaries to Jurassic World. The three campers find the same courage as the Avengers to stop Dr. Wu and his men.
“Whatever is needed” was the call to action of desperate superheroes in Avengers Endgame. The Avengers knew that their plan to use the Quantum Realm to commit time heists and steal the Infinity Stones in order to undo the billions of deaths caused by Thanos (Josh Brolin) had no guarantees that it would work. But the Avengers gambled everything on this plan and gathered all available heroes to carry out the time heists. When the Avengers marched into the Quantum Tunnel and said their goodbyes, Captain America (Chris Evans) reminded everyone that they would have to do anything and everything to be successful: “Whatever is needed.”

On Cretaceous Camp Season 3, Brooklyn, Yaz, and Darius came to the same conclusion as Captain America. Dr. Wu returned to Jurassic World to collect his research on hybrid dinosaurs, and the original monsters he created, the Scorpios Rex, had already ravaged Isla Nublar. Brooklynn saw Wu’s research and understood the genetic terrors he planned to unleash by creating hybrids that ‘improved’ on the Scorpios Rex and Indominus Rex. Knowing that it was up to them to prevent Dr. Wu, Darius, Brooklynn, and Yaz from committing to do “Whatever is needed,” with Darius saying the line. It was as much a call to action for the campers as it was for the Avengers in Endgame, and the penultimate episode of Cretaceous Camp season 3 was even titled “Whatever It Takes”.
Brooklynn’s final fate from the episode even echoed the death of Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) in Avengers Endgame. When Black Widow and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) traveled to Vormir to retrieve the Soul Stone, they learned from the Red Skull (Ross Marquand) that one of them would have to sacrifice his life to earn the Infinity Stone. Nat and Clint fought over it, but it was Black Widow who chose to sacrifice her life for the universe and she quoted Cap’s words: “Whatever is needed,” bringing the phrase to its ultimate meaning.
On Cretaceous CampBrooklynn was trapped while she and her friends tried to escape from Wu’s underground labs and she too dangled by her fingertips. Darius and Yaz had to take the laptop containing Wu’s research from the geneticist and his henchmen, so Brooklynn sacrificed herself and stayed behind, even though that meant she would be captured. Brooklynn’s last heroic words in episode 9 were “Whatever is needed” and she understood what they meant as well as Black Widow did in Avengers Endgame.
Cretaceous Camp Season 3 takes place in 2015, six months after the end of jurassic world and the events of the last two episodes of season 3 run parallel to the prologue of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. This means that it will still be 3 and a half years before Avengers Endgame opens in theaters, but Brooklynn, Darius, and Yasmina prove they already understand the significance of the Avengers’ heroic sacrifice in Jurassic World: Cretaceous Camp season 3.
