In 2019, the Marvel Cinematic Universe broke new ground with its first female-led superhero film.  Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel achieved a remarkable history of crossing the $1 billion mark at the global box office, heightening Marvel’s renown. This accomplishment underscored the audience’s hunger for diverse and strong women characters, in the superhero universe. Consequently, fans can look forward to an upcoming sequel with an awesome female-driven narrative titled The Marvels, which features  Captain Marvel, Mrs. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau.

As per the report, The Marvels will be the next major flick from the MCU and will not only be the second reprisal of  Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel but will also weave together the female adventures of  Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau from Wanda Vision as well. The movie follows the forceful team of three resilient women as they save the world from Zawe Ashton’s Kree revolution. Due to The Marvels’ Phase slot, the movie will also serve as a prelude to the trio’s upcoming adventures which may encompass Avengers 5 and beyond.  

As The Marvels is to hit theaters, director Nia DaCosta is discussing the new updates for Captain Marvel 3. In the recent issue of Total Film magazine, the director spoke about the potential of Captain Marvel’s adventures beyond. DaCosta shared her future ideas with Marvel Studios’ head  Kevin Feige. The director said she received a mixed reaction from him, sometimes thinking she’s “got a movie going” and other times feeling there’s “a whole other plan I’m not part of.”

She said Captain Marvel’s future adventures hinge solely on the box office outcome of The Marvels.  DeCosta is optimistic about her Marvels, seeing the recent success of female-led movies in 2023. Regardless of their success,  the increasing number of female-led movies marks a significant and commendable change in the industry, she says,

“In terms of women-led films and women as superheroes in particular and excitement around that, I think it’s just about whether or not the movie’s good. especially now that there are more and more action or superhero movies with female leads”.

The resounding triumph of Captain Marvel in 2019 meant a sequel, which was inevitable. So in fact, The Marvels should see similar success to assure the arrival of Captain Marvel 3.  Whatever the case, it appears that Da Costa is willing to mark a sequel to The Marvels, and there are plenty of plots that can be taken from the comics.

The Marvels aims to relate a diverse female audience

For the magazine, the director described her upcoming movie, The Marvels, as “wacky and silly.” The Marvels adventure will be a fresh experience for fans, unlike other MCU movies.  Executive producer Mary Livanos agrees and says the movie is something that women from all walks of life could relate to.

“The biggest difference from the other MCU movies to date is that it’s wacky and silly. The worlds we go to in this movie are worlds, unlike others you’ve seen in the MCU. Bright worlds that you haven’t seen before.”

In the interaction, DaCosta discussed the box office possibility of The Marvels. She mentioned the recent success of the movie Barbie, which was phenomenal to hit a billion dollars with something that connects with a girl. Similarly, DaCosta believes that The Marvels would maintain the quality of the female superhero movie, “superhero fatigue exists.” She insists her movie, starring Brie Larson, will still excite fans the same as she did before and lead the audience to come back.

“‘Barbie’ is so specific—it’s Barbie. Every girl in the world probably has a Barbie, as do a lot of men. So I think that’s a phenomenon that’s probably going to make a billion dollars.” “But I think for women-led superhero films, as long as the quality stays up, that’s what’s going to keep the audience coming back.”

With even more attention being placed on the trio, The Marvels. This appears to have bright future for the franchise.

The Marvels is scheduled to release in cinemas on November 10.
