The Marvels, the follow-up to 2019’s “Captain Marvel,” features Brie Larson once again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This time, Teyonah Parris from “WandaVision” and Iman Vellani from “Ms. Marvel” join Larson in the limelight among other female MCU actors.
After the Disney+ series “Ms. Marvel,” which introduced Vellani as Kamala Khan, a.k.a. the youthful New Jersey superhero Ms. Marvel, comes the much awaited continuation of Carol Danvers’ origin tale.
The first look at the movie “The Marvels” was only presented to panel participants at the 2022 D23 Expo before the first trailer for the movie was released. The first clip sheds light on what happened following the “Ms. Marvel” post-credits sequence, in which Kamala seemed to switch places with Carol. Shortly after, the “The Marvels” teaser resumed with Captain Monica Rambeau (Parris) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) serving as astronauts for the Saber Space Station. Monica transforms into Ms. Marvel when she reaches a point in the space-time continuum, proving that she, Carol, and Kamala all possess a special set of transforming abilities.
Carol Danvers, or Captain Marvel, has recovered her identity from the oppressive Kree and exacted retribution on the Supreme Intelligence, according to the official “The Marvels” description from Marvel Studios. However, unanticipated consequences force Carol to bear the weight of a cosmos in disarray. Her talents combine with those of Jersey City superfan Kamala Khan, alias Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau, when her responsibilities take her to an anomalous wormhole connected to a Kree revolutionary. To rescue the universe, this odd group will need to come together and learn how to cooperate.
Director Nia DaCosta will make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut with “The Marvels” after directing the 2021 “Candyman” revival; this accomplishment makes her the first Black woman and fourth woman to direct a movie in the MCU. The film’s script was co-written by DaCosta, Megan McDonnell, Elissa Karasik, and Zeb Wells.
Park Seo-joon, a South Korean actor best recognised for his work in “Parasite” and the TV show “Itaewon Class,” also appears in the movie. Saagar Shaikh, Zenoiba Shroff, and Mohan Kapur, who play Kamala’s elder brother, mother, and father, respectively, are other confirmed cast members, along with Zawe Ashton, who will play an unnamed villain. The beloved Flerken Goose will also make a comeback on film.
The Marvels premieres in theatres on November 10, 2023, after a postponement from this summer. Below is a link to the official trailer.
