“The Marvels” Drops Electric New Trailer Ahead of Director Nia DaCosta’s Big Marvel Studios Debut

Being a superhero can be a lonely job, especially if you’re the type of superhero that Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) is. Only Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has had a similar responsibility: keeping a watch on all the trouble brewing deep in the cosmos, to say nothing of returning to Earth when things go pear-shaped there, too. Yet Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers, also has the loneliness of having had her memory erased by the Kree, so at the start of director Nia DaCosta’s The Marvels, Carol’s gone off in search of a way to repair those memories and get back all that she’s lost.

The new trailer reveals some fresh footage of the story that’s been teased in previous peeks at DaCosta’s film. Carol’s plans are severely thrown out of whack when she goes to explore an anomalous wormhole lined to a Kree revolutionary (Zawe Ashton’s Dar-Benn) and her superpowers get all tangled up with the abilities of a young girl from Jersey City named Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani, reprising her role from Disney+’s Ms. Marvel), as well as her estranged Niece, S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. It was Monica’s mother, Maria (Lashana Lynch), who was Carol’s best friend and flying partner. But in Carol’s absence, Maria passed away. Her daughter Monica, meanwhile, was snapped into dust by Thanos and then blipped back. Let’s just say her feelings about Captain Marvel have cooled in the interim. The three of these very different but powerful women now find their abilities all mixed up, and they’ll need to figure out a way to work together to untangle this mess and save the planet simultaneously—a tall order.

Higher. Further. Faster. These three words have long been the motto of Captain Marvel, but now that she’s part of a super-team, she’s added another—together.

Check out the new trailer here. The Marvels soars into theaters on November 10.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In Marvel Studios’ “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.”
