The Marvels is a sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel and will see the return of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. What’s more, she’ll also be joined by two MCU newcomers. Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau and Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel, with Nia DaCosta (Candyman) directing.
Fans may already be familiar with Teyonah Parris from her debut outing in WandaVision. While Iman Vellani was arguably Marvel’s breakout star of 2022 for her portrayal of Kamala Khan in Ms. Marvel, With a script by Megan McDonnell (WandaVision).
The Marvels follows the three heroes who find themselves unexplainably connected. They switch places with each other every time they use their powers. This situation was teased in the post-credit scene for Ms. Marvel, in which Vellani’s Ms. Marvel unexpectedly switched places with Larson’s Captain Marvel.

At last year’s D23, Disney also debuted the first footage from the highly anticipated film. The sneak peek picked up right after the “Ms. Marvel” post-credits scene. The footage showed Captain Rambeau as an astronaut at the Saber Space Station with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

They discover that every time they use their powers, they swap places, and now Kamala Khan is in the spacesuit. Fury and Rambeau then head to Khan’s house, where there’s a flurry of action-packed fight scenes in the teenager’s living room.
The change in release date follows Marvel’s announcement that it will reduce and spread out its Disney+ TV.
