With the announcement of the release date being pushed back to July 2023, some fans were worried that this meant Marvel would be abandoning its female-led plans. But as it turns out, there’s a very different reason for that delay beyond the usual “possible conflicts with other movies in production” excuse.
The Marvels, aka Captain Marvel 2, might have been delayed to July 2023, but there won’t just be one Captain Marvel but three of them ready to take on the bad guys: Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel and Monica Rambeau.
All we know about the movie saw far:
The release date
The movie is finally supposed to release on July 28,2023 . Lets just hope it does not change this time.
It became meant to be out in July 2022 earlier than a shuffle of the entire MCU slate noticed it driven lower back to February 17, 2023. Then in April 2022, The Marvels swapped places with Ant-man and The Wasp: Quantumania, pushing it to its modern July date.
We suppose that release date will stick as the sequel has finished filming as of may additionally 2022, barring any capacity reshoots (which can be a commonplace incidence for maximum blockbusters, now not simply marvel movies).
The magical cast
We already knew that Brie Larson would be returning as Carol Danvers, and at Disney Investor Day in December 2020, it was confirmed that she would have some exciting company.
After debuting the role in WandaVision, Teyonah Parris will appear as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, while the sequel will also feature Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, who debuted in the Disney+ series of the same name.
Vellani revealed that she actually only found out about her role in The Marvels just before her announcement, during a night shoot the day before. “I got a text from Disney PR, I got a text from Brie Larson, and at the same time I got a text from our producers saying I was in the movie, and then they announced it on screen. I said, ‘Thank you,'” she recalled. “I had an inkling that I would be in it, but more of a cameo role, not an actual main character, so that was great.
The title might refer to Carol and Kamala as the two Captain Marvels, but the events of WandaVision saw Monica gain superpowers. In the comics, Monica became Captain Marvel before Carol, so there could be another Captain Marvel in town.
Speaking of WandaVision, the show also confirmed the sad news that Maria Rambeau died during the five years Monica was brushed off by Snape. This seemingly rules out the return of Lashana Lynch in the sequel.
However, Lynch is not completely ruling out a surprise return in the sequel. “Stranger things have happened in the franchise. I had a great time on the first one, and it would be great to have a great time on the next one,” she said in August 2021.It’s clear that Monica and Carol have some issues to work through (potentially due to her not being there for her mom), so maybe they’ll be explored in flashbacks that could see Lynch reprise her role.
Zawe Ashton will play the main villain, but it’s unclear who he’s playing at this time. With potentially three Captain Marvels to take on, she better be powerful or she won’t last long.
Parasite’s Park Seo-joon also makes his MCU debut in the sequel, while a deleted Instagram post seemingly revealed that Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff and Mohan Kapur will return as Kamala’s brother Aamir, mother Muneeba and father Yusuf.
The first film passed without major casualties outside of Starforce member Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan), so she’s the only character we can say for sure won’t be returning.Samuel L Jackson seems to have confirmed his return as Nick Fury in August 2021 and we really want to see Fury rekindle his friendship with Goose (if Goose is still alive).
The most amazing plot : who, how,what,when?
As mentioned, the title probably refers to a team-up between Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan, which may or may not also include Monica Rambeau.
WandaVision has hinted that all is not well in the relationship between Carol and Monica, so friction could form part of the sequel’s storyline. We don’t think it will go so far as to make Monica a villain of any kind, but it doesn’t all have to be smooth sailing. There hasn’t been an official synopsis from Marvel for the sequel yet, but it’s been talked about as a “space adventure,” so read into that what you will. In the post-credit scene of Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel unexpectedly switched places with Kamala Khan. Right now, though, it’s just a tease for the sequel rather than giving us any concrete plot information.
If you’re hoping to get any plot details from the cast, you’re out of luck as they remain tight-lipped. Larson said that when she read the “bonkers” script, she “couldn’t believe what I was reading”.
“What I love about Marvel is that they keep inventing. They keep doing things you’d never think possible in these movies. And they’re not afraid to go there,” she added.And all Parris will tell us is that the sequel is “going to be pretty epic,” which is good enough for us.
Let’s hope there are no further delays and we get to explore the answers we are seeking since the first part. Obviously, the eyes are on our very loved Monica with her WANDAVISION!
