For Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), it has to be said that, unfortunately, the movie “The Marvels” will still be focused on the story of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson).
Directed by Nia DaCosta, the film would supposedly follow the idea of being a “Captain Marvel 2”, a sequel to the film “Captain Marvel” (2019), by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and which directly served to show the origin of the character.
In short, this idea was even reformulated to be a team-oriented resource. However, despite technically having two more heroes, “The Marvels” looks like it will still primarily focus on Carol.
Specific plot details that will revolve around “The Marvels” have yet to be released. Also, it needs to be emphasized that this movie is not scheduled to be released in the year 2023.
In view of these aspects, Marvel Studios has not yet begun to actually market the film, choosing to focus the studios’ energies on other future projects, such as Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “Ant-Man”. and the Wasp: Quintumnia” by Peyton Reed.
That said, it’s important to say that DaCosta’s “The Marvels” was among the projects featured at the D23 Expo, where the first images from the film were also revealed.
However, some information about the narrative of the feature was shared. This includes the idea of Larson teasing what audiences can expect from the trio’s dynamic. According to Larson, “The Marvels” addresses Kamala and Monica’s conflicting opinions of Carol. Larson says:
“’Ms. Marvel’ idolizes Captain Marvel, but doesn’t really know the real Carol. And then you have Monica, who grew up with her, but has a little bit of resentment because of the time that has passed.”
In view of this, Larson’s character will be at the center of the whole plot while he discovers a little more about himself. Taking that premise into consideration, it seems like the film’s emotional backbone will be the complexities of their respective relationships with their new teammates.
In terms of prominence, therefore, the focus will still be on Carol Danvers and her narrative of the MCU, making Captain Marvel act as a kind of liaison between Kamala and Monica.
