While the fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe are busy expecting the upcoming movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and also two more MCU movies that will be released this year — Thor: Love and Thunder and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, we cannot forget that with every day we are also getting closer to The Marvels, the sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel.
Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson is set to reprise the role of Carol Danvers she played in Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame (and the post-credit scene of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), and she’s also set to be accompanied by Teyonah Parris, who debuted as Monica Rambeau last year in WandaVision, and Iman Vellani, who is set to debut this year as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel in her own Disney+ series before she reprises the role in The Marvels.
Initially announced as Captain Marvel 2 in December 2020, with the release date set for November this year, the movie got a new title last spring and it was later moved to the current release date — February 17, 2023, while the previous release date (November 11, 2022) has been taken over by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Although the movie is still one year away, and we still don’t have any teasers or first-looks, Brie Larson recently shared the picture of her chair from the movie’s set, writing “See you in a year, Carol!” in the description. You can check the tweet below:
Although this isn’t showing us anything about the movie itself, we realize that Marvel still needs to hype up and release three movies before The Marvels starts its marketing campaign.
Candyman director Nia DaCosta is directing this sequel from the script written by Megan McDonnell. When DaCosta signed on to direct the film, she became the youngest director who ever worked on the Marvel film, beating the record set by Ryan Coogler, who directed Black Panther and its sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The Marvels already wrapped production. Samuel L. Jackson is also expected to reprise the role of Nick Fury, while Zawe Ashton joined the film in the undisclosed villainous role. The Marvels is set to hit theaters on February 17, 2023.
