The Marvels is an upcoming American superhero film based on Marvel Comics featuring the characters Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the sequel to Captain Marvel (2019), a continuation of the Disney+ series Ms. Marvel (2022), and the 31st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Nia DaCosta from a screenplay by Megan McDonnell, and stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.

Marvel Studios confirmed plans to make a sequel to Captain Marvel in July 2019, and development began in January 2020 with McDonnell joining and Larson set to return. DaCosta was hired that August, with Vellani and Parris revealed to be cast in December. Second unit filming began in mid-April 2021 in New Jersey, with The Marvels revealed as the title in early May. Principal photography had begun by August 2021, taking place in Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire and in Tropea, Italy. It will also occur in Los Angeles and New Jersey.

The Marvels is scheduled to be released in the United States on February 17, 2023, as part of Phase Four of the MCU.

Cast

Additionally, Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur reprise their respective roles as Khan's older brother Amir, mother Muneeba, and father Yusuf, from Ms. Marvel.[5] Zawe Ashton has been cast in an undisclosed villain role,[6] with Park Seo-joon also cast in an undisclosed role.[7]

Production

Development

Ahead of the release of Captain Marvel (2019), star Brie Larson expressed interest in a sequel featuring the character Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel.[8] Producer Kevin Feige previously said there were plans to introduce Khan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and this would follow the release of Captain Marvel since Khan is inspired by Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel;[9] Iman Vellani was later cast as Khan for the Disney+ television series Ms. Marvel (2022).[10] In March 2019, Feige said Marvel Studios had some "pretty amazing" ideas for a sequel,[11] which could either be set in the 1990s time period of the first film or move to the present day.[12] Lashana Lynch expressed interest in reprising her role of Maria Rambeau in a sequel, even if it was set in the present.[13] At the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con in July, Feige confirmed plans to make a sequel to Captain Marvel.[14]

Official development on the film began in January 2020 when Megan McDonnell entering negotiations to write the script, after previously serving as a staff writer on Marvel Studios' Disney+ series WandaVision (2021).[15] Larson was confirmed to return as Danvers,[1] though Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck were not expected to return after directing and co-writing the first film, with the studio hoping to hire a female director to replace them. The film was expected to be set in the present day, and was aiming for a 2022 release.[15] In April 2020, Disney scheduled the film to be released on July 8, 2022, filling the July 2022 date the studio had previously reserved for an untitled Marvel film.[16] That August, Nia DaCosta was hired to direct the film. Deadline Hollywood's Justin Kroll called this another sign of Marvel Studios adding diversity to its films due to DaCosta being the first Black woman hired as a director by the studio, adding that the film would likely break the record for the biggest-budgeted film directed by a Black woman.[17] The studio had also considered Olivia Wilde and Jamie Babbit as directors for the film,[18] but DaCosta was said to have been the frontrunner for some time.[17] Richard Newby of The Hollywood Reporter felt DaCosta's hiring could bring new energy to the MCU and Captain Marvel franchise, saying DaCosta "enjoys challenging preconceived notions about the relationship between characters and the lore behind stories". Newby also felt the film could explore Danvers' story from the perspective of Maria Rambeau's daughter Monica, a Black woman in present-day America.[19]

Feige announced the film as Captain Marvel 2 in December 2020, with a new release date of November 11, 2022. He confirmed DaCosta's involvement, and announced that Vellani would reprise her role as Khan in the film, alongside Teyonah Parris reprising her role as Monica Rambeau from WandaVision.[2] Parris was excited to work with DaCosta again after Candyman (2021), to star alongside Larson and Vellani, and to further explore Monica's relationship with Danvers that was first teased in WandaVision.[20]

Pre-production

Pre-production work on the film was starting by February 2021, when Zawe Ashton was cast as the film's villain.[6] By the end of March, principal photography was expected to begin at the end of May,[21] with second unit filming beginning in mid-April.[22][23]

Filming

Second unit filming began on April 9, 2021, in Jersey City, New Jersey,[22] under the working title Goat Rodeo,[24][22] to capture aerial and establishing shots, and green screen plates.[22][23] In May, Marvel Studios revealed that the sequel would be titled The Marvels.[25] Ethan Anderton of /Film noted that this title refers to both Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel, since the film's logo includes the same stylized "S" from the Ms. Marvel series' logo.[26] Graeme McMillian at The Hollywood Reporter acknowledged this explanation, but also wondered if there was a connection to the 1994 comics series Marvels—which tells various Marvel Universe events from the perspective of a photographer—or a project of the same name announced in 2020. He also wondered if "The Marvels" referred to a family of heroes, much like DC Comics' Marvel Family (now known as the Shazam Family).[27] In mid-June, Park Seo-joon joined the cast in an undisclosed role. He was scheduled to leave for the United States to begin filming in the coming months, after completing work on the film Concrete Utopia.[7] The next month, Larson and Parris had begun to prepare for filming,[28][29] while DaCosta said The Marvels would deal with "specific, personal, [and] sometimes sad things", but would have a lighter story compared to her films Little Woods (2018) and Candyman. She also felt that she had more creative freedom on The Marvels than on her prior films.[30]

Principal photography had begun by August 10, 2021,[31] at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire,[30][21] with Sean Bobbitt serving as cinematographer.[32] Filming was originally expected to begin on May 31.[21] Filming took place in Tropea, Italy on August 27, on the seaside of Tirreno, with Calabria also inspected.[33][34] On September 3, Park left for Los Angeles to begin filming shortly.[35] Shortly after, Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur were revealed to be reprising their respective roles as Khan's older brother Amir, mother Muneeba, and father Yusuf, from Ms. Marvel.[5] In October 2021, the film's release was delayed to February 17, 2023.[36] Additional filming is also expected to occur in New Jersey.[21]

Release

The Marvels is scheduled to be released in the United States on February 17, 2023.[36] It was previously scheduled for July 8 and November 11, 2022.[16][25] It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU.[37]
