This superpowered trio will go higher, further and faster than ever before. Entertainment Weekly shared exclusive first-look photos for The Marvels for the cover story of their latest issue. Based on these images, we’re in for a Marvelous time (I’ll see myself out). 

The pics showcase Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), Dar-Benn (Zawe Ashton), Goose the Flerken, director Nia DaCosta and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

Here’s a synopsis for the film per Marvel.com:

“Carol Danvers 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 and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau.”

We last saw Monica Rambeau in 2021’s WandaVision (she made her debut as a child in Captain Marvel), where she gained her new abilities and was recruited by a Skrull to work for Fury in space. After starring in her own film and kicking Thanos’s ass in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, Carol Danvers last appeared at the tail end of Ms. Marvel when she inexplicably wound up in Kamala Khan’s bedroom.

Of course, Kamala Khan recently headlined the aforementioned Ms. Marvel in 2022, marking the character’s live-action debut. Currently, Nick Fury is trying to stop a clandestine Skrull invasion in the Secret Invasion miniseries, which is slated to premiere its finale in the coming weeks. As for Dar-Benn, this film is the character’s live-action introduction. In the comics, Dar-Benn was a Kree General who eventually became Emperor of the Kree Empire. 

I’m super stoked to see this hit the big screen. The MCU has done an excellent job introducing and fleshing out these wonderfully nuanced heroes. I can’t wait to see Kamala interact with her idol, Carol Danvers. That’ll be a blast and a half. 

The Marvels stars Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, Iman Vellani, Zawe Ashton, Park Seo-joon and Samuel L. Jackson. Nia DaCosta directs from a script by DaCosta, Megan McDonnell, Zeb Wells and Elissa Karasik. Check out the photos below, and brace yourself for action when the film premieres in theaters on November 10, 2023.
