The primary trailer for The Marvels, the subsequent MCU film, is right here – and it appears to be like prefer it’s bringing precisely the sort of enjoyable journey the previous few entries within the timeline have been lacking. The follow-up to Captain Marvel appears to be like like a team-up film that is taking its cues from the primary Avengers film, however with some added chaotic area farce.
The massive query I had about this film is how it might carry collectively the three ‘Marvel’-branded heroes with out it coming throughout as ridiculous coincidence, and the trailer solutions it: the movie’s setup is that Carol Danvers’ (Brie Larson), Kamala Khan’s (Iman Vellani), and Monica Rambeau’s (Teyonah Parris) powers are entangled, and after they use them, they swap locations. That is even extra of a ridiculous coincidence than I anticipated, and I believe that is why it really works for me – it leans to date into it, it comes out clear the opposite facet.
Captain Marvel / Carol Danvers gained her powers from a mis-used Infinity Stone in, unsurprisingly, Captain Marvel; Monica Rambeau gained hers from Scarlet Witch’s bizarre actuality discipline in the course of the occasions of WandaVision; and Kamala Khan gained hers from an alien bangle (and in addition, perhaps, some sort of… mutation) throughout Ms Marvel. Take a look at our full MCU timeline article for how you can catch up, however these three are clearly the principle tales you may need to know going into this film, although I believe you may skip WandaVision (Monica’s story may be very minor in it total, and may be summed up as: she will get powers).
The essential factor is that the general team-up really feel right here is the closest Marvel has come to The Avengers since, effectively, The Avengers. The factor about that film is that it is a lot enjoyable, and actually embraces the completely different personalities of its heroes. Carol Danvers is among the strongest beings within the universe, Monica Rambeau is discovering her ft along with her new powers, and Kamala Khan is simply completely happy to be right here.
They will do various things, and their powers are going to work together in enjoyable methods. They stay in numerous methods, so we’re gonna get three completely different fish-out-of-water films in a single. Take a look at the scene the place they’re battling one another and preserve swapping locations! It simply appears to be like enjoyable.
And that is sort of a aid after the MCU’s beforehand dependable enjoyable franchise, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, took a flip for the annoyingly epic and darkish, and never precisely with glowing outcomes. Black Panther: Wakanda Endlessly was additionally nonbarrel of snickers, although for a lot better purpose.
This film appears to be like prefer it’s getting again to what made individuals get on board with the MCU within the first place – this is hoping the film bears it out, and takes a spot among the many finest Disney Plus films when it arrives on streaming later.
