Marvel Studios presents “The Marvels,” the 33rd movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “The Marvels” is the sequel to the 2019 box-office phenomenon “Captain Marvel,” which introduced audiences worldwide to an all-new adventure starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character.
While “The Marvels” is a follow-up to the blockbuster “Captain Marvel,” Kevin Feige, producer and president of Marvel Studios, points out what makes the new film unique.
“This movie was really built from the ground up by our director, Nia DaCosta, who created a fun, quirky tone for this story that is completely new to the MCU,” says Feige. “And we’re shining the spotlight on these three powerhouse women, who are each so different and distinct but fit together perfectly as a trio of dynamic heroes.”
In “The Marvels,” Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super fan Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as “The Marvels.”
“‘The Marvels’ is a huge world-building endeavor,” says executive producer Mary Livanos. “The film paints the biggest picture of the cosmic Marvel universe that we have seen yet. With that come locations and new characters that celebrate all the most zany and mysterious facets of sci-fi that we as filmmakers love.”
Marvel Studios’ “The Marvels” stars Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, Iman Vellani, Zawe Ashton, Gary Lewis, Seo-Jun Park, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Saagar Shaikh, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Nia DaCosta directs with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Mary Livanos, Jonathan Schwartz and Matthew Jenkins serve as executive producers. The screenplay is by Nia DaCosta and Megan McDonnell and Elissa Karasik.
“The Marvels”’ impressive production team includes director of photography Sean Bobbitt; production designer Cara Brower; costume designer Lindsay Pugh; editors Evan Schiff and Catrin Hedström; visual effects supervisor Tara DeMarco; special effects supervisor David Watkins; composer Laura Karpman; stunt coordinator Jo McLaren; and hair and makeup designer Wakana Yoshihara.
