Further information is made known about Captain Marvel 2, The Marvels, where the flick is said to be not about Brie Larson’s character, Carol Danvers.
Recall how rumors have offered that Disney lost confidence in Brie Larson, and we can also add that Kevin Feige dumped the writing and directing team of the billion-dollar “hit” Captain Marvel and decided against using “Captain Marvel” in the sequel title, which suggests some kind of trouble.
Regarding The Marvels not being all about Brie Larson, which the obvious title change suggests, Variety actually goes so far as to say Ms. Marvel will co-headline the movie, adding it will be a small-scale all-female team-up adventure (bold my own):
Nia DaCosta (“Candyman”) will direct the sequel to the $1.1 billion-grossing sensation “Captain Marvel,” starring Brie Larson. The new title, however, makes clear that this won’t just be a story about Carol Danvers, and will instead be a small-scale all-female team-up adventure. Megan McDonnell (“WandaVision”) wrote the script.
MCU Tie-In: “Ms. Marvel” star Iman Vellani will co-headline the project as Kamala Kahn, who idolizes Captain Marvel. And Teyonah Parris will appear as the adult Monica Rambeau, who transformed into an enhanced superhero during the run of “WandaVision,” which ended with an invitation by the Skrulls for Monica to go to space.
