Just before nine this morning, Good Morning America gave the world its first look at the upcoming The Marvels movie starring Brie Larson, Iman Vellani, and Teyonah Parris. The plot centers around the issues arising from the Marvels’ powers getting “entangled.”
The trailer opens in outer space. Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is inside the S.A.B.E.R. space station communicating with Captain Monica Rambeau (Parris), who is in an astronaut suit completing a mission outside the compound. She’s inspecting a wall of energy, and when Captain Rambeau touches it, there’s a supernatural glitch. Kamala, AKA Ms. Marvel (Vellani) is suddenly inside the astronaut suit, and Monica is nowhere to be found. Despite the harrowing situation, Kamala is excited and star-struck at seeing Nick Fury, asking, “Is this an Avengers test?” Parris’ Rambeau suddenly shoots onto another planet amid a fight.
Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, also known as Carol Danvers, makes her trailer entrance by smashing through a bedroom door. Presumably, this is Kamala’s house, and another glitch in energy has swapped the Marvels’ places again. How do we know it’s Kamala’s bedroom? Hundreds of posters, fan art, and merchandise of Captain Marvel cover the wall. Larson surveys the scene and says, “What the…?”
Nick Fury and Monica drop in on Kamala at home to figure out the glitch issue, and in excitement, Monica accidentally glitches again, hurling Brie Larson into her living room. Kamala is thrust onto another planet this time, in the middle of whatever battle Captain Marvel is fighting. Goose, the alien charading as a cat, is by her side. It unleashes tentacles from its mouth to stop a bad guy. Kamala is traumatized.
A quick montage advertises an action-packed, badass, female-led, and militarized kitten-filled blockbuster. In the last clip, the three Marvels stand together, discussing their plight. Kamala is thrilled at the prospect that the three of them are “a team.” Brie Larson and Teyonah Parris quickly correct her, saying “We are not a team,” but Kamala is not deterred.
The Marvels looks like another potential hit for Marvel Studios. The distinct differences in personalities of the three leading ladies make for some good chemistry, comedy, and emotional stakes.
The Marvels will be in theaters on November 10! See the fuller trailer here!
