After watching Captain Marvel, one thing is bugging me very much. In the movie Ronan and his fleet used jump points for getting very close to earth and launch an attack.
So why didn't the Chitauri use the same technique in Avengers? I mean Loki gained the Tesseract as soon as the movie started. So why did Loki just go through all that trouble of building a portal and giving the Avengers the time to assemble and launch a counter attack? As soon as Loki gained the tesseract, the Chitauri could've just used jump point to take over the earth before any defence could be made.
