The Cast: Old and new faces in The Marvels

While the story of Captain Marvel 2 is still a secret, it is already clear which actors we will see in the MCU film.

Brie Larson as Captain Marvel

Brie Larson will of course resume her role as former Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. However, it could be her last big appearance as Captain Marvel: As Giant Freakin Robot writes, Marvel plans to replace the character in the long term - with Kamala Khan and / or Monica Rambeau.

Jude Law as Yon-Rogg

As Marvel has confirmed, Jude Law will also be seen again as Carol's ex-mentor Yon-Rogg. According to media reports, he could initially appear as her opponent in the sequel, but it is quite possible that his part will develop in a different direction as the film progresses.

Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau

Teyonah Parris slips into the role of Monica Rambeau for The Marvels. In WandaVision we were able to take a first look at their superpowers [Attention, spoilers to follow]: After traveling through the hex in Westview there several times, her cells were overwritten. This gave her superhuman strength.

Monica Rambeau can now, among other things, absorb energy and even survive gun salvos. It also has accelerated perception. And as soon as she uses her strength, her eyes light up in different colors. The S.W.O.R.D. agent has not yet included the Spectrum coat in the series.

Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan

Canadian actress Iman Vellani was cast as Ms. Marvel in 2020 and will star in the Disney series of the same name. Kamala Khan made her comics debut in 2014: The Pakistani-American Muslim woman can stretch her body there and determine for herself which parts of the body change - and how big they become. In addition, Kamala's wounds heal much faster than normal mortals, and she can customize her appearance, voice, and clothing as desired.

Zawe Ashton as?

Zawe Ashton is the latest addition and is slated to appear as the main antagonist in Captain Marvel 2: The Marvels. Unfortunately, we do not yet know exactly what role it will play. Ashton is known from the Netflix film "The Art of the Dead Man" (2019) and the Broadway play "Betrayal" (2019), among others. Here she played on the side of "Daredevil" actor Charlie Cox and "Loki" star Tom Hiddleston.

Nia DaCosta: Horror expert takes over the direction

The script for Captain Marvel 2 comes from the pen of Megan McDonnell, who already has MCU experience: She wrote the script for WandaVision. Who will film Captain Marvel 2 is also certain: Nia DaCosta ("Candyman") is in the director's chair for the sequel. We'll tell you here why this line-up is promising.

Captain Marvel 2: what story can we expect?

So Captain Marvel 2 is taking on ever clearer forms. In terms of content, it has long been suspected that a film version of the "Secret Invasion" story awaits us. At least this is what Kevin Feige indicated to Comicbook almost a year ago. This is a well-known storyline from the Marvel Comics in which the Avengers are horrified to discover that the Skrulls have begun an invasion of Earth.

The aliens can take the form of other humanoids and have infiltrated the Avengers and other important institutions. While Skrulls like Talos in the first Captain Marvel movie weren't malicious, that doesn't mean that other members of the alien race have good intentions as well. Against this theory, however, speaks that Disney is already working on a Marvel series with Samuel L. Jackson with "Secret Invasion". Therefore, it is unlikely that the story will play a bigger role in Captain Marvel 2 as well.

So far we only know that The Marvels should be a "cosmic adventure" set in the present. The plot of the first part was still scheduled in the 90s.
