Captain Marvel 2: when will The Marvels sequel be released?

News

While TF1 is broadcasting “Captain Marvel”, its sequel entitled “The Marvels” will be released in cinemas in July 2023. It is therefore time to take stock of the film, while waiting for its trailer to be revealed.

In March 2019, Marvel launched one of the strongest characters in its Cinematic Universe on the big screen: Captain Marvel . Directed by  Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden , from the independent circuit, the first opus of the MCU featuring a superheroine at the top of the bill knows a meteoric rise in the world and ends its run with 1.128 billion dollars of receipts.

A sequel is obviously under construction for the heroine played by Brie Larson , who also shines in Avengers – Endgame . But the feature, titled The Marvels , has had some turmoil due to the Covid pandemic, like many others since 2020. It’s now on track, and it’s time to take stock as TF1 broadcasts the first opus this Sunday, September 18.

WHEN IS IT COMING OUT?

After several postponements, The Marvels finally seems to have settled down. And the film should therefore be released in our theaters on July 26, 2023. As a result, and contrary to what seemed to be announced at first, it will belong to Phase V of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, since the IV will end in November from this year at the cinema, with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever .

WHO REALIZES?

Exit Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck! Despite the success of the first opus, the two directors do not return behind the camera. After approaching  Olivia Wilde and Jamie Babbit , Marvel Studios finally set their sights on Nia DaCosta , who delivered the recent Candyman . She thus becomes the first black filmmaker to stage an MCU opus.

WHO PLAYS IN IT?

Inducted into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2019, in the guise of a character announced a few months earlier, in the post-credits scene of Avengers – Infinity War , Oscar winner Brie Larson will of course be back as the lead. ‘attach. But she will not be alone, since other characters endowed with the same powers (or variants) will be there: Monica Rambeau ( Teyonah Parris ), seen in WandaVision , and Kamala Khan, alias Miss Marvel, heroine of the series of the same name, broadcast from Disney+ in June.

The Marvels will then become the first feature film of the career of its interpreter, the sparkling Iman Vellani . As the images unveiled during the D23 have confirmed, the British  Zawe Ashton ( The Handmaid’s Tale ) will be the villain of the story, whose identity has not yet been revealed. And  Samuel L. Jackson should be cast as Nick Fury, which isn’t more surprising than that, since he was the one who teamed up with Carol Danvers when she arrived on Earth, with her new powers, in the first opus.

WHAT WILL IT TALK ABOUT?

At this time, The Marvels does not yet have a synopsis. Officially. But the post-credits scene of the last episode of season 1 of Miss Marvel already gave us a first indication, when Carol Danvers appeared in Kamala Khan’s room, while the latter was visibly projected to the edge of space. According to the trailer unveiled during D23 (but only to those present on site), the feature film will begin in a joyous mess, with heroines who will take each other’s place because of the paradoxes linked to the fact that they have more or less the same powers.

Because The Marvels will not be a Spider-Man No Way Home multiverse film , insofar as Carol, Monica and Kamala coexist in the same reality, unlike the three Peter Parkers. Rather than “body swap” à la Freaky Friday , the feature film will opt for “place swap” , with characters projected from one place to another, without being able to have the slightest control over events. At first, of course.

It is not yet clear how the villain played by Zawe Ahston will fit into the story. Or the repercussions The Marvels will have on the rest of the MCU, as  Fantastic Four approaches, and the word “mutation” was spoken in the last episode of Miss Marvel season 1, while the theme music was playing. from the X-Men animated series  of the 90s. But for all that, you will probably have to wait until July 2023.

Speaking to our microphone, on the sidelines of the D23 Marvel panel, Brie Larson promises us “incredibly complex, nuanced and badass characters! These incredible women who come from different places but must learn to work together to solve a problem that is beyond them. . It’s beautiful, funny and awesome.” Still a little less than a year to wait.
