“The Marvels” Final Trailer Reveals Major Cameo From MCU Star
The opening half-minute or so of the final trailer for The Marvels connects co-writer/director Nia DaCosta’s movie to major moments in MCU history. From Nick Fury’s initial idea to form a team of superheroes to fight threats too large for any one of them to face alone to the troubling words of the biggest threat of them all (so far), Thanos (Josh Brolin), who promised those Avengers that he was “inevitable,” and even if vanquished, “there will always be more.” Over these words, we see the threat that will center The Marvels, Zawe Ashton’s Dar-Benn, a Kree revolutionary whose anger at Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) is so potent she’ll burn down the world to make her pay.
The final trailer more fully centers Dar-Benn than any previous look at the film and firmly paints a picture of a formidable enemy who can use Captain Marvel’s prodigious powers to make herself stronger. This leads to the trailer’s most surprising moment, the arrival of a beloved character from the larger MCU, Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie. Valkryie tells Captain Marvel, “You can stand tall without standing alone.” This crucial piece of wisdom likely helps the good Captain see that she can use the help of her two new, cosmically intertwined teammates. The Marvels, as the title suggests, offers not one but multiple heroes in the form of Captain Marvel’s estranged niece, S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Harris), and the pint-sized powerhouse who also happens to idolize her, Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani, reprising her role from her Disney+ series Ms. Marvel). These three women find themselves cosmically connected after a mishap with an anomalous wormhole that connects their powers and turns them upside down.
It will take Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau, and Ms. Marvel to take down Dar-Benn, with a little help from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), of course.
The abovementioned cast is joined by Park Seo-joon, Zenobia Shroff, Saagar Shaikh, Mohan Kapur, Jessica Zhou, and Caroline Simonnet.
Check out the final trailer below. The Marvels arrives in theaters on November 10.
