When it comes to Marvel films, fans are often anxiously awaiting the next Marvel movie to arrive in theatres. We’ve also been introduced to new characters from shows like “Ms. Marvel” or “Moon Knight” and gotten to see characters we already know return in DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, BLACK WIDOW and other thrilling films.
Now, the fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are going to be seeing another familiar face when THE MARVELS releases, as well as newer characters that are just getting started in the MCU. If you are looking for a guide for the upcoming Marvel film, here is what you need to know.
The Marvels Is Releasing In 2023
While THE MARVELS was originally announced to be coming out in 2022, those dates were pushed back until 2023. It’s been confirmed that THE MARVELS is set to come out on July 28, 2023.
This is going to be one of several films that are part of Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is going to start when ANT-MAN AND THE WASP: QUANTUMANIA releases in February 2023. So thankfully, we won’t need to wait too long for Phase 5 to kick off and THE MARVELS to eventually arrive at AMC Theatres.
The Marvels Involves Body-Swapping
There are few details that are known about the upcoming THE MARVELS film, but there was footage of the movie that was recently shown at the 2022 D23 Expo, which featured vibrant action and plenty of humor for fans to enjoy. Based on the footage from D23, it seems like Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and Monica Rambeau have to deal with body-swapping at some point when they use their powers.
As the film’s release date looms closer, there will most likely be more news that comes out regarding the plotline of THE MARVELS, and hopefully a trailer will be released soon enough.
Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani Unite
It wouldn’t really be THE MARVELS if Brie Larson wasn’t in the film, so she is set to return as Captain Marvel after her first appearance in her own original film, as well as AVENGERS: ENDGAME and a small cameo appearance in SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS.
Larson has done plenty of work in the industry, including her Academy Award® winning performance in ROOM, as well as appearing in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD and so much more, so it’s exciting to see her return to the suit in THE MARVELS for the next installment of Captain Marvel’s story.
However, she will not be alone. In THE MARVELS, Captain Marvel is joined by both Ms. Marvel, played by Iman Vellani, and Monica Rambeau, played by Teyonah Parris. The two characters both have powers that are cosmic and very strong.
Monica Rambeau was technically introduced in CAPTAIN MARVEL as a child, but we see her as an adult now in THE MARVELS, though she was first featured in the critically-acclaimed “WandaVision," so it’ll be cool to see her MCU feature film debut. Iman Vellani had her MCU debut with “Ms. Marvel” in the summer of 2022, and her character, Kamala Khan, was revealed at the beginning of the show to be a big fan of Captain Marvel, so she’ll surely be eager to work with her idol – despite the circumstances surrounding this.
The Marvels Is Directed By Nia DaCosta
If you were wondering who was going to be directing the next Captain Marvel film, Nia DaCosta has taken on the reins for THE MARVELS.
The young director has already proved herself plenty in Hollywood with her directing credits including the crime thriller LITTLE WOODS, as well as the 2021 horror sequel, CANDYMAN. And, fun fact, Teyonah Parris actually co-starred in CANDYMAN, so it’ll be a reunion for the director and the actress for THE MARVELS.
DaCosta has also done work in TV, working on the TV series “Top Boy.” She also worked on the post-credits scene for “Ms. Marvel” during the episode, “No Normal,” so she was already dipping her toes into the MCU at that point. DaCosta is set to become the youngest director within the Marvel Cinematic Universe at age 32. The record was previously set by Ryan Coogler, director of both BLACK PANTHER and the upcoming BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER, who is 36.
Truly, this is set to be a film that fans of Captain Marvel won’t forget and one that is going to bring a lot of fun to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. THE MARVELS releases on July 28, 2023 at AMC theatres everywhere.THE MARVELS
