The Marvels is a direct sequel to 2019's Captain Marvel, which introduced Brie Larson as Carol Danvers to the MCU, while also being the first film in the franchise set around a female character, grossed $1.1 billion in worldwide collections. Based on a script written by Megan McDonnell, who's known for her work in the 2021 Disney+ series WandaVision, the upcoming film will focus on the Monica Rambeau character. Teyonah Parris' character first got her superpowers in WandaVision after she was introduced in Captain Marvel as a child. The Marvels will also go into detail on Kamala Khan from the Ms. Marvel series, which began streaming in 2022.
The post-credits scene for the Ms. Marvel series had already given the lead for The Marvels as it saw Brie Larson make a cameo appearance as Captain Marvel. When Kamala Khan's bangle begins glowing all of a sudden, she gets teleported away while Captain Marvel is seen transported into her room, leaving her pondering how she ended up getting there. The Marvels marks Brie Larson's second appearance as the superhero post-pandemic after she featured in an uncredited mid-credits cameo in 2021's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. It is also her fourth time playing Carol Danvers aka. Captain Marvel after being introduced into the MCU in 2019's Captain Marvel after which she teamed up with the Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the second highest-grossing film of all-time, Avengers: Endgame, released the same year.
