Just recently, we learned that the sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel has started production. We still don’t know where the story exactly picks up, but we did get the confirmation that Carol Danvers won’t be the only holder of the Marvel title. She’ll be joined by WandaVision‘s Monica Rambeau and the newest member of the Marvel family, Kamala Khan.
There’s the potential we might see many more heroes join the fray, as Samuel L. Jackson hinted at his appearance in the film, which might tie into the Disney+ Secret Invasion series. The project will see a new direction alongside its new director, Nia DaCosta. She’s worked on the recent Candyman film and she offered a tease of what we can expect for the upcoming film. She even highlights it’ll be “a very different beast” from the previous entry in the franchise, as it focuses on a specific theme.
But I am obsessed with how we all deal with our pain and trauma, and there’s some of that in the story.Nia DaCosta
The theme strongly matches with the first seeds set when we were introduced to Teyonah Parris‘ Rambeau. We find out her mother, Maria Rambeau, passed away during the events of the snap. When Captain Marvel was named, she seemed openly upset at hearing her name. So, there might be a clash between two of our heroes. Monica gained superhuman abilities in WandaVision, which might make her a formidable foe in the series but her abilities are quite distinct.
We don’t know if the series might also dive into the Kree-Skrull War storyline from the comics or is also a side story for Secret Invasion. There’s a lot of potentials and the theme will add a new layer to this story moving forward. It’ll be interesting to explore Carol Danvers in the modern-day after witnessing what she has gone through, especially with her solo story taking place in the 90s. There’s a lot we might not know about her journey since outside of taking on Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
