There’s nothing like a good team-up when it comes with a side of heart. It’s important for cool characters to meet not just for the sake of meeting, but for the sake of bringing their characters to new heights. And that’s exactly what the trailer for the MCU’s upcoming The Marvels, the somewhat sequel to Captain Marvel, promises to bring us. Yes, we love a cosmic hero, and we love three incredible ones even more. But the idea from The Marvels trailer that “teaming up changes everyone”—that’s what we’re most excited about. Not to mention, this latest trailer gives us our best look yet at what The Marvels is about. Take a look below:
The synopsis for The Marvels highlights more about what we see in the trailer, it shares:
Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as “The Marvels.”
Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Captain Monica Rambeau (who may soon go by Photon) all have light-based powers in the MCU. As The Marvels‘ trailer reminds us, Captain Marvel can absorb light, Captain Monica Rambeau can see it, and Ms. Marvel can turn light into physical matter. We feel like our new Kree villain, Dar-Benn, probably intended to steal or suppress Captain Marvel’s powers. But instead, thanks to the MCU’s version of Nega-Bands, Carol is now linked intrinsically with Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau. And these MCU heroes now switch places every time they use their powers. Cosmically, that’s trouble. And when you add in the major discussions that need to happen between Carol and Monica, Ms. Marvel’s ardent love of Captain Marvel, and more, it’s a lot for any hero to handle. But happily, that’s why you build a team.
The Marvels trailer also promises us we’ll get a team-up of cats (or are those Flerken) in the MCU. That sounds excellent. Goose the Flerken will make a triumphant return in The Marvels and we wouldn’t be surprised if she were leading an army.
Higher. Further. Faster. Sometimes, you can’t get there on your own. This The Marvels trailer is just a tease of what’s to come. The movie stars Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, Iman Vellani, Zawe Ashton, Gary Lewis, Park Seo-joon, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Saagar Shaikh, and Samuel L. Jackson. An excellent cast. We definitely can’t wait to see this epic team-up take shape. The Marvels releases on November 10.
