Marvel officially announced the production of ‘The Marvels’ following the successful release of ‘Captain Marvel’ in 2019. The groundbreaking film not only served as Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie but also set a new record as the studio’s second-best opening for a superhero origin story at that time.
Cast of ‘The Marvels’
The upcoming film showcases a talented ensemble cast. Brie Larson returns as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, while Teyonah Parris, known for her role as Monica Rambeau in Disney+’s ‘WandaVision,’ joins the team. Additionally, Iman Vellani, who made her debut as Ms. Marvel in the Disney+ series of the same name, is also part of the cast.
Samuel L. Jackson is back as the iconic Nick Fury, reprising his role from ‘Captain Marvel.’ The cast is further elevated by the addition of Zawe Ashton, rumored to be the film’s villain, bringing an intriguing dynamic to the mix.
Plot of ‘The Marvels’
During the D23 event, exclusive footage unveiled that the movie continues immediately after the events of ‘Ms. Marvel.’ Kamala Khan and Carol Danvers discover that Kamala’s bangle causes them to swap powers. This unexpected turn of events leads to the three superheroes teaming up, as Variety reports.
Director of ‘The Marvels’
Nia DaCosta, the first Black woman to direct a Marvel film, takes the helm of ‘The Marvels.’ Her previous work, ‘Candyman’ (2021), shattered records as the highest-grossing film by a Black female director in the domestic box office.
DaCosta received high praise from Brie Larson, who commended her for her clear vision and exceptional storytelling abilities.
Principal photography for ‘The Marvels’ commenced in August 2021, as confirmed by Larson. The production concluded in November, with various team members sharing the news on social media.
In February 2023, Marvel revealed the official poster featuring Monica Rambeau, Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel), and Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) with the tagline, “Higher. Further. Faster. Together.”
In April, Marvel Studios delighted fans with a teaser trailer that brought together Captain Marvel (Larson), Ms. Marvel (Vellani), and Parris from ‘WandaVision’ for an exciting new adventure. A full-length trailer was released in July 2023, giving us a sneak peek into the brave efforts of the heroic trio, alongside the formidable Kree leader Dar-Benn (Ashton), as they fight to save the universe.
‘The Marvels’ had a few release date changes. Initially scheduled for February 17, 2023, it later swapped dates with ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ due to production progress. The official poster then unveiled a new release date of November 10, 2023.
