Captain Marvel 2 Is Titled “The Marvels” For A Marvellous Reason…

today7 May 2021

Background

For years, Marvel has been naming its franchise sequels with the titular hero included, such as ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, ‘Iron Man 2’, and so on. But this time, they decided to break the streak for this explosive upcoming film called ‘The Marvels’. 

 

And why is it called ‘The Marvels’ instead of, maybe, ‘Captain Marvel 2’, you might wonder. What happened to Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel?

 

 

Don’t worry, she will definitely be back…and this time, she’s bringing along some friends. 

 

Marvel Comics

 

In case you don’t already know, Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is not the only Captain Marvel — in fact, she’s the seventh

 

And in the comics, Monica Rambeau took over the mantle of Captain Marvel after the death of its predecessor, Mar-Vell. After a tragedy that nearly robbed her of her life and her powers, Rambeau retired the mantle and took on multiple code names such as ‘Photon’ and Spectrum.  In the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Rambeau made her debut in the first ‘Captain Marvel’ film as a little girl and despite receiving her powers as an adult in the Marvel series ‘WandaVision’, it’s unclear which of these code names she will take. 

 

 

And then we have Kamala Khan, a Muslim Pakistani teenager who idolises Danvers. In fact, she idolises Danvers so much that when she realises she is gifted with superpowers, she named herself after her idol. Awwww. Oh, and lookit, Ms Marvel is also getting her own series on Disney+!

 

Marvel Studios

 

With the film title being called ‘The Marvels’, this is the film that is going to introduce the two superheroines and it’s going to be epic. Scheduled to be released in November 2022, this seems to be Marvel’s most ambitious feature yet.
