While admittedly underwhelming, Marvel’s panel at D23 did bring a few fun surprises. One of those surprises came in the form of plot details about the upcoming Captain Marvel, WandaVision, AND Ms. Marvel sequel The Marvels.
The official synopsis, which was revealed at the presentation, states that the film will follow Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan as they attempt to come together after they realize that every time they try and use their powers, they wind up trading places with one another. This was exemplified during Ms. Marvel’s post-credit scene.
That’s not all. According to footage unveiled exclusively to those in attendance, the fan-favorite cat-character Goose will also make an appearance in the film. It’s unclear if he’ll be as an integral to this film as he was in the original.
Marvel Studios’ The Marvels will feature Brie Larson returning to the role of Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers. In the film, she’ll be joined by Teyonah Parris, who was first introduced as adult Monica Rambeau in Marvel Studios’ WandaVision, along with Iman Vellani, who will appear as Ms. Marvel in the upcoming Disney+ series of the same name. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Zawe Ashton, Tessa Thompson, Lashana Lynch, Seo Jun Park, and Zenobia Shroff.
The film is expected to be connected to the Disney+ series’ Ms. Marvel and Secret Invasion. The highly-anticipated sequel is directed by Nia DaCosta (Candyman) and Megan McDonnell, who wrote the script, hot after her success on WandaVision. The Marvels hits theaters on July 28, 2023, which was previously scheduled for February 2023 release.
