Recap Before Watching ‘The Marvels’

The Marvels is hitting theaters soon, and for those not deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), catching up can be a challenge. With characters crossing over between TV shows and movies, it’s easy to get lost. Let’s break down the main trio in The Marvels before you catch the film.

Captain Marvel’s Cosmic Adventures:
Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), hasn’t been Earth’s resident hero lately. Gifted with cosmic powers from the Tesseract, she’s part-Kree and spent much of the 21st century in space. After aiding the Avengers against Thanos, she’s been notably absent on Earth. Her last interaction with Monica Rambeau, a childhood friend, was when Monica was a child. Expect some tension when they reunite.

Ms. Marvel’s Teenage Quirkiness:
Enter Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), the charming Ms. Marvel. Her powers, activated by a bangle, involve harnessing energy from another dimension. Recent revelations in the TV series suggest she might be a mutant, teasing the potential inclusion of X-Men in the MCU. Kamala’s still mastering her abilities, as seen in the trailer for The Marvels, where she accidentally ventures into space. Get ready for some laughs, as she’s the quippiest of the trio.

Monica Rambeau’s Empowered Journey:
Monica (Teyonah Parris) started as a child in Captain Marvel, grew up, turned to dust during the Snap, and returned after Avengers: Endgame’s time-travel plot. In Wandavision, she gained powers after passing through the reality-altering “hex.” Now, she can manipulate the electromagnetic spectrum. Nick Fury noticed her heroism and invited her to space to join him. Monica’s still without a superhero name, but she might embrace her childhood nickname, “Lieutenant Trouble.”

Nick Fury’s Return to Space:
Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury was last seen in the Disney+ series Secret Invasion, investigating a Skrull invasion on Earth. After resolving the threat, he returns to space with his space partner, Priscilla. The details of their mission are unclear, but something has brought Fury back into action.

The Uniting Force:
These heroes are brought together to face a common threat—an evil space entity (Zawe Ashton) causing more multiverse chaos. With the MCU recently exploring multiverse fractures, it seems like this theme will continue in The Marvels.

So, buckle up for a cosmic adventure with this eclectic trio as they navigate powers, relationships, and the ever-expanding Marvel universe.
