In an unexpected change of course, Marvel Studios have unveiled the new title of Captain Marvel 2, sequel to Brie Larson which will henceforth be known as The Marvels.
After just one standalone film, the Captain Marvel has already changed identity by moving to what the new title paints as an esemble: in addition to Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, in fact, the film will include the participation of Monica Rambeau (Teyona Parris), recently seen in WandaVision, e Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), protagonist of the upcoming TV series Ms. Marvel, due out on Disney + by the end of 2021. Although the presence of the two new superheroines had already been confirmed in the past, the title The Marvels anticipates a completely new franchise.
There are already those who are convinced that the film will lead to the formation of an unprecedented team disconnected from both the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, and some venture that this team will be the live-action version of the Ultimates: for the uninitiated, the group was originally born as a modern reinterpretation of the Avengers for the Ultimate comic universe, inspired the Marvel Studios cinecomics and was subsequently adapted to a ‘cosmic superteam’ after the events of the comic Secret Wars. Another member of the comics Ultimates, namely America Chavez, will be introduced in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, played by Xochitl Gomez). Another superhero of the group, Blue Marvel, had been at the center of some rumors that indicated him as next to his debut in Captain Marvel 2.
What is certain is that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding visibly, and it is very likely that The Marvels will play a key role in this expansion. The film, we recall, has a release date scheduled for 11 November 2022.
