Brie Larson is set to reprise her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the highly anticipated sequel to 2019’s “Captain Marvel” titled “The Marvels”. This time, Larson will share the screen with Teyonah Parris from “WandaVision” and Iman Vellani from “Ms. Marvel”.
The upcoming movie is a follow-up to Carol Danvers’ origin story, and takes place after the Disney+ series “Ms. Marvel”. The show introduced Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, a.k.a. the young, New Jersey superhero Ms. Marvel.
The trailer for “The Marvels” was first shown exclusively to panel attendees at the 2022 D23 Expo before being released to the public.
The initial footage offers insight into the aftermath of the “Ms. Marvel” post-credits scene, where Kamala seemingly swapped places with Carol.

“The Marvels” teaser picked up shortly thereafter, with Captain Monica Rambeau (Parris) working as an astronaut for Saber Space Station alongside Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). When Monica hits a jump point in the space continuum, she morphs into Ms. Marvel, confirming she, Carol and Kamala share a unique set of transformative powers.
The official synopsis from Marvel Studios reads: “Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe.
When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe.”
Nia DaCosta, who recently directed the 2021’s “Candyman” reboot, will make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut with “The Marvels”. This makes her the first Black woman and fourth woman to direct a film in the MCU. DaCosta co-wrote the screenplay with Megan McDonnell, Elissa Karasik and Zeb Wells.
South Korean actor Park Seo-joon, best known for his roles in “Parasite” and the TV series “Itaewon Class,” will also star in the film. Other confirmed cast members include Saagar Shaikh, Zenoiba Shroff and Mohan Kapur as Kamala’s older brother, mother and father, respectively, along with Zawe Ashton in an undisclosed villain role. Goose, the fan-favourite Flerken, will also make a return to the screen.
The Marvels Release Delay
The release of “The Marvels” has been delayed from its original summer 2023 date, and is now set to hit theatres on November 10, 2023. Fans are eagerly waiting to see Larson’s Captain Marvel share the screen with other powerful female superheroes like Monica Rambeau and Ms. Marvel.
The film promises to be an exciting addition to the MCU, and the inclusion of Nia DaCosta as a director highlights the studio’s commitment to diversity and representation. Fans are anticipating another thrilling adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
