The director of The Marvels presents her three heroines as sisters

Nia DaCosta explains the relationship between Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani).

The director Nia DaCosta, at the head of the next The Marvels, looks back on the sisterly relationship that unites the three protagonists of his blockbuster. Indeed, the heroines each presented successively to the viewer in recent years (Captain Marvel in his eponymous film; Monica Rambeau alias Photon in the series WandaVision and Kamala Khan aka Miss Marvel in its eponymous series), will be brought together in the same film, continuing the development of the MCU.

The trailer already reveals that the three heroines will be linked together by their powers, which corresponds to the desire of Nia DaCosta to consider them as a singular trio: “I thought it would be cool to imagine a strange family situation and a sister story about them” she explains to Empire. It also describes the hierarchy of this relationship: “Carol is the oldest, the prodigy, then there is her middle sister, Monica, whom Carol knew as a child and to whom she promised to return, which she did not do (…) Kamala is the youngest, she never had the opportunity to live with her eldest, but she idealizes her.

that is how Nia DaCosta describes this trio of sisters linked not by blood but by their cosmic powers. In this sequel, the three women will have to find a balance to defeat new threats from space. Moreover, the filmmaker adds that she is more interested in how Carol and Monica will reconnect after years of separation and a broken promise: “What matters most to me in this film is how these two will reconcile.”

The Marvels will be released in theaters on November 8, 2023.
