The synopsis looks back to the climactic events of 2019’s Captain Marvel after Carol broke free of her Kree brainwashing; she’s now “shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe” as a consequence. In the sequel, a wormhole will act as a catalyst for bringing Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau together as their “powers become entangled” with one another’s just in time to “save the universe:”
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 Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as ‘The Marvels.’
What Else to Expect In The Marvels
This synopsis seems to tie directly to the final scene in Ms. Marvel, where Carol Danvers found herself in Kamala Khan’s bedroom after Kamala’s bangle made her and Carol switch locations. Now, it appears that Carol will have to learn how to handle Kamala’s mutant powers alongside her own and those of Monica Rambeau, making for some interesting struggles as the trio meets for the first time.
This comes on top of having to mend her estranged relationship with Monica Rambeau, who still resents her mom’s best friend for being away from earth while Maria died from cancer. It’s also still unclear where Monica is after fans last saw her gain superpowers in Westview during WandaVision, so fans may find a more-skilled Monica once she’s introduced in The Marvels.
While it’s still unknown what else will come from this wormhole and the Kree revolutionary, played by Zawe Ashton, the stakes in this movie should dwarf what Carol saw in her 2019 origin story.
The Marvels will debut in theaters on July 28, 2023.
