Carol Danvers is one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes, but does she also have one of its best voices? A new rumor making its way across the internet says that The Marvels, the upcoming sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel, will feature musical elements in the film. The information comes from a variety of online outlets with a strong track record of being correct, and if true, could help The Marvels stand out in Marvel Studios’ extensive Phase 4 plan. According to the word on the street, the movie will include a sequence in which its characters visit an alien planet where song is the only developed form of communication.
Star Brie Larson is set to reprise her role as Danvers, which will surely help if The Marvels actually does lean into its musical side. The actress is known for her vocal capabilities, having previously flexed her golden pipes in projects like 2010’s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and a solo album, titled Finally Out of P.E., released in 2005. So, if any member of the cast has the qualifications to pull off a musical number, it’s Larson.
While The Marvels having a potential musical section comes as a surprise, there is actually a basis for the concept in the comics. 2014’s Captain Marvel #9 took it’s titular character to the planet Aldana, where all living beings spoke to each other in rhyme and music. The move would also set up The Marvels as the second major comic book movie to feature musical elements in the next couple years, coming before Joker: Folie à Deux does the same thing with Joaquin Phoenix.
The Marvels is set to hit theaters on July 28, 2023.
