Find Out Why Captain Marvel 2 Is Called ‘The Marvels’

Captain Marvel’s second installation is upcoming and it is officially titled “The Marvels.” Marvel Studios recently announced the upcoming projects in a trailer showcasing the release dates for a handful of MCU movies in the works. Many fans are wondering why “The Marvels” isn’t called Captain Marvel 2.

The new movie is directed by Candyman’s Nia DaCosta, and the film is scheduled for a November 11th 2022 where it will star both Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and newcomer Iman Vellani’s teenage superhero, Ms. Marvel. Simply put, we will be getting more than just Carol Danvers in this second film.

Vellani will be playing Marvel’s first onscreen Muslim superhero in the Disney+ series Ms. Marvel, which is slated to be released later in 2021 on Disney’s streaming platform. More so, we will also be seeing Teyonah Parris return as Monica Rambeau.


Fans of WandVision may recall that Parris already made her MCU debut on WandaVision, where she portrayed the S.W.O.R.D. agent investigating Westview with FBI Jimmy Woo. Though Monica doesn’t technically have a Marvel name yet, however, we got to keep a couple of things in mind – One, it’s safe to assume that she has some kind of relationship with Captain Marvel herself since Carol was her mother’s best friend. Also, Monica was actually Captain Marvel in the comics. If you saw her in WandaVision, you will recall tha she received powers from Scarlet Witch’s Hex, so we’re going to see more of this sooner.


On a side note, “The Marvels” does have a different view in the comics. “The Marvels” are not exactly a team, which we would probably have expected of the upcoming movie. Rather the term is referring to the superpowered characters in the Marvel Universe which would include quite a few more characters.


Anyways, it’s clear to all MCU fans that the upcoming film will not be solely on Carol Danvers, so it will be an exciting ride to see some of the most powerful female leads from the Marvel comics come together on the big screen. Let’s all look forward to it!
