Marvel enthusiasts are all around the world. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to unveil another epic adventure with “The Marvels,” and if you’ve been wondering what’s been happening in the superhero realm, you’re not alone. The MCU has been expanding faster than a speeding Quinjet, with characters zooming in and out across TV shows and films. If you’re feeling a bit lost, fear not! We’ve got your back with a friendly guide to catch you up before you catch “The Marvels.”
First things first, where has Captain Marvel been? Well, not on Earth enough, that’s for sure! Carol Danvers, played by the stellar Brie Larson, has been off the grid, kicking intergalactic butt and zapping in and out of Kamala Khan’s New Jersey home. Captain Marvel got her cosmic powers after a run-in with the Tesseract and spent a good chunk of the 21st century in space doing hero work. Remember how she swooped in to help defeat Thanos in “Avengers: Endgame”? Good times.
Now, let’s talk about the charming Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, portrayed by the talented Iman Vellani. Kamala’s powers were just waiting to burst forth, and when she put on a stunning bangle, things got interesting. This magical accessory allows her to harness energy from another dimension, giving her the ability to catch falling people, leap into the sky, and stretch her body in crystallized ways.
Remember Monica Rambeau, the little girl from “Captain Marvel”? Well, she’s all grown up now, thanks to the wonders of time travel and a dash of Tony Stark’s sacrifice. Teyonah Parris played the character of Monica. Still going by her childhood nickname of “Lieutenant Trouble,” Monica’s got some serious heroism to bring to the table.
There’s Nick Fury, the man with the plan, played by the iconic Samuel L. Jackson. Fury was dealing with a Skrull invasion on Earth, revealing some surprising twists about MCU heroes being replaced by Skrulls. After resolving the invasion threat, Fury heads back to space, this time with his space wife Priscilla. Classic Fury.
Now, why are these heroes teaming up? Something cosmic has brought them together to face off against an evil space entity named Dar-Benn, played by Zawe Ashton. This threat is tearing holes in space, causing realities to bleed into each other. If this sounds familiar, it’s because the MCU has been delving into multiversal fracturing lately, and it seems like “The Marvels” will continue this cosmic saga.
So, are you ready to watch The Marvel? Because it will set you up on a cosmic roller coaster. The excitement of the show will keep you on edge. The characters are justified. The storyline is unique and entertaining. Enjoy the show, Marvel fans!
