The first Captain Marvel film may have had its detractors, but personally I really enjoyed the first one. I honestly believe that a lot of the hate thrown at this movie is fueled by the misogyny of a relatively small population of the audience. I really liked Brie Larson in the role of Carol Danvers and the sequel, titled The Marvels, will see the inclusion of some interesting characters like Monica Rambeau from WandaVision and Kamala Khan from Ms. Marvel. All three of these characters are connected in very different, but very important way. While I’m sure Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel will be the main focus of the film, it makes a lot of sense to bring these characters together for something closer to an ensemble than a straight up Captain Marvel 2. So I’m definitely looking forward to the next film when it hits theaters later this year.
The Marvels was originally supposed to premiere in late July, but was recently pushed back to November 10. This seems to be an effort on the part of Marvel Studios to spread their films out a bit more. I think they realized that, over the past couple of years, they’ve oversaturated the market a little. So we’re going to start seeing less MCU Disney+ shows premiering as well as a longer amount of time between new film releases. Which I think is a really good idea. In fact, it’s probably one of the best moves Marvel Studios could make right now. As the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. In the meantime, Marvel has debuted a very cool, new teaser poster for The Marvels. I like the inclusion of the three main characters and how it evokes the very cool teaser poster for the first Captain Marvel movie. Check it out…
