They go higher, further, faster! brie larson is back as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers in The Marvels, and this time she’s not flying alone.
The super-powered Air Force veteran will be joined by Monica Rambeau (Teyoná Parris) and Kamala Khan/Mrs. Wonderful (Iman Vellani).
“A big part of why I wanted to play Captain Marvel was because of Ms. Marvel and what that meant,” Larson told Entertainment Weekly in February. “Seeing that character performed by such a brilliant human being with so much potential is really exciting.”
Kamala was first introduced last year on the Disney+ television series Ms. Marvel. The teen, who happens to be a huge Captain Marvel fan, discovered her hidden powers and embraced her new identity as a superhero on the show. In the final moments of the season, Kamala’s magical bracelet glowed and suddenly disappeared. In her place was Carol, who was very confused upon landing in a New Jersey room covered in fan art dedicated to her superhero character.
While the first official meeting of Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel is expected to be on the big screen at the Nia Da Costa-directed sequel, Carol has a long history with Monica. In the 1995-set film, Monica was introduced as the young daughter of the Avenger’s best friend, Maria Rambeau (lashana lynch). She returned as an adult in WandaVision, reeling after the death of her mother and finding herself superpowered after crossing paths with Wanda Maximoff (elizabeth olsen).
The worlds of the three characters begin to collide in The Marvels as they physically switch places each time they use their powers.
“We have to collide somehow. We all have to react to each other,” Larson explained to Marvel.com in September 2022. “We are all very different. Our powers are different. The way we communicate is different. And that’s what makes it so fun and fun to watch.”
Relationships are at the core of this movie, DaCosta teased at the D23 Expo in September. “While Carol and Monica have to find their relationship again after all this time apart, we have Ms. Marvel idolizing Carol the way Monica used to when she was younger,” she explained to EW at the time. “So you have these two adults having to reconcile their relationship while this younger person also has a relationship that mirrors the way Monica and Carol used to be together. So I find it very interesting to see them together and how they become a kind of brotherhood with their own different points of view. In fact, it’s very nice, funny and very sweet to see all of you working together.
