While the absence of the Avengers has already had a huge impact, the wait is on The Marvels is nothing less than that. It’s been almost three years since we’ve seen Captain Marvel in action. After witnessing how Carol Danvers turned the tide of war in the Avengers: End Gameit’s hard to imagine how powerful a ‘Marvel’ can get and it makes us wonder what the upcoming film has in store for us.
Since the publication of The Marvels, fans have speculated how this trio could shape the future of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). As one of the most anticipated films approaches its release date, we are yet to find out what the film has to offer the excited audience or how it will further develop the characters. On the flip side, here’s what we know and expect from The Marvels’ upcoming cosmic adventure.
Who are the Marvels?
The upcoming film will feature not one, but three major Marvel Comics superheroes, making fans even more excited. Although the revelation is nothing new, it gives us great pleasure to present The Three Wonders that ignite a feeling of passion in women.
Looking back at the first one Captain Marvel movie, we’ve seen Carol Danvers’ journey towards becoming one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. As a result, the film gave birth to the first Captain Marvel as she went on to save the planets across the galaxy. Monica Rambeau is the daughter of Carol Danvers’ best friend, Maria Rambeau. She befriended and looked up to Carol when she was still a child. During the Westview incident, she crossed the Hex barrier several times, causing her cells to be rewritten and giving her superpowers.
Our adorable Ms. Marvel will officially make an entrance as one of the trio of The Marvels. Kamala Khan has admired Carol Danvers for as long as she can remember, inheriting powers from the family heirloom passed down by Aisha, her great-grandmother – a being from the Noor Dimension.
The Marvels: The Plot
After the epilogue of Mrs. Marvelgave fans a glimpse of what may lie ahead The Marvels. Under Ms. Marvel’s post-credits scene switches Kamala (not shape-shifting) with Captain Marvel, clearly showing her inability to control her powers.
On the other hand, the post-credit scene is off Spider-Man: No Way Home and WandaVision links to Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau. Based on these events, the trio seemingly switch places when they lose control of their powers and must work together to find out and deal with the consequences. While the synopsis does not give much insight into the plot, we can get one idea of what That Marvel’s is all about — at the surface level.
The Marvels: Cast
The Marvels is not just another sequel film that highlights or empowers the superhero; instead, it represents the Marvels struggling to control their powers and protect those they care about. Therefore, the cast of the film is incredibly familiar, yet we will see many new faces, which adds value to the film.
Brie Larson returns in her role as Captain Marvel alongside Teyonah Parris as Captain Monica Rambeau and Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan. While it may seem strange to see Lashana Lynch reprise her role as Maria Rambeau, it may be the flashbacks that serve to develop Monica’s character. It could also help her understand everything that happened in the period after Captain Marvel until the events of Avengers: End Game.
Yonn-Rogg, the leader of Starforce and commander of the Kree Empire, played by Jude Law, makes a triumphant return to the big screen in a much-anticipated role. Samuel L. Jackson, who plays Nick Fury, appears to have completed his vacation after making contact with Talos and will play a significant role. Cobie Smulders, reprising her role as Maria Hill, will once again assist Nick Fury, and Jimmy Woo, who made a caustic impression as Shield’s agent in Wanda Vision, returns with another sensible role.
Zawe Ashton will play the film’s main villain, and her exact role has yet to be announced. Some other notable cast members include Yusuf Khan, Aamir Khan and Muneeba Khan playing supporting/lead roles for Ms. Marvel. Colin Stoneley appears as Papp-Tonn, a Kree Empire Scientist. The franchise is yet to confirm the other four important roles played by Zawe Ashton, Park Seo-Joon, Ffion Jolly and Shamier Anderson.
Marvel Studios has announced that the 33rd film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the sixth installment of Phase Five, The Marvelswill hit theaters on July 28, 2023. The release date isn’t far off, and as 2022 draws to a close, we’ll be seeing one of Marvel’s most anticipated films on the big screen in no time.
Although it may seem difficult to wait this long, Marvel Entertainment has many other projects planned before The Marvelslike Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniaand Guardians of the Galaxy 3. While you wait for The Marvelsyou can entertain yourself with other exciting Marvel TV series or movies in theaters and on Disney+.
