Next year is going to be a big year for the MCU, as many major films will come out. One of the more anticipated ones though is The Marvels. Which will bring together Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan for the first time!
The director of The Marvels, Nia DaCosta, has been opening up about the movie, including how the relationships will play out:
“While Carol and Monica are having to find their relationship again after all this time apart, we have Ms. Marvel, who idolizes Carol the way that Monica used to when she was younger, so you have these two adults having to reconcile their relationship while this younger person is also having a relationship that mirrors the way Monica and Carol used to be together,” DaCosta explained. “So I find it really interesting, the three of them together, and how they become a little bit of a sisterhood with their own different points of view. It’s actually really nice and fun, and very sweet watching them all work together.
Kamala herself Iman Vellani added of her character, “I think she has certain expectations of what this teamwork should look like, and you know, from the comics and all these stories that she hears about the Avengers, and so it’s not exactly what she dreamed it was gonna be, so I think Kamala’s kind of the glue of the group and holds these guys together. ”
Oh, and if you think this is going to be like the A-Force moment in Avengers Endgame, DaCosta wants it to be better:
“I, like many women around the world, watched Avengers: Endgame, and had that six seconds of all the Marvel women together. I once had chills, but I was also very annoyed. I was like, ‘Two hours of this, please.’ So it was really nice that they decided to do a team-up movie with three of my favorite heroes, so that’s what was most exciting,” DaCosta explained.
The movie will release on July 28th, 2023
