Marvel Studios confirmed plans to make a sequel to Captain Marvel in July 2019. Development began in January 2020 with McDonnell hired after working on the television miniseries WandaVision (2021). Larson was set to return from the first film as Danvers, and DaCosta was hired to direct that August. In December, Parris was revealed to be reprising her role as Rambeau from WandaVision alongside Vellani returning as Kamala from Ms. Marvel. Second unit filming began in mid-April 2021 in New Jersey, and the title—referring to the three characters and their similar abilities—was revealed in early May. Principal photography began in July 2021 and concluded by mid-May 2022, taking place at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire and Longcross Studios in Surrey, England, as well as in Los Angeles and Tropea, Italy. Karasik's involvement was revealed during post-production.

The Marvels premiered in Las Vegas on November 7, 2023, and was released in the United States on November 10, as part of Phase Five of the MCU. It received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for the performances but criticism for the script and tonal inconsistencies. The film underperformed at the box-office, grossing $206 million worldwide against a gross production budget of $274.8 million, making it the lowest-grossing film in the MCU and one of the few MCU films not to break even in its theatrical run.

Plot edit

Carol Danvers destroys the Supreme Intelligence, the artificial intelligence that leads the Kree empire.[a] This leads to a civil war on planet Hala, the Kree home world, rendering the planet barren as it loses its air, water, and sunlight over the next 30 years.

The Kree's new leader Dar-Benn discovers one of the two legendary Quantum Bands, which were previously used to create a network that allows fast travel across space. She uses the Band to forcibly open a new jump point that connects to the network. The resulting anomaly impacts the entire network, including a jump point near Earth's S.A.B.E.R. space station run by Nick Fury. Captain Monica Rambeau investigates the jump point near S.A.B.E.R. while Danvers investigates the new one that Dar-Benn opened. When they touch their respective jump points, Rambeau is transported to Danvers's location, Kamala Khan—who has the other Quantum Band on Earth—is transported to Rambeau's location, and Danvers is transported to Kamala's house. The three use their different light-based powers to fight off Kree enemies, leaving the Khan family home destroyed.

After the trio return to their original places, Fury and Rambeau visit Kamala on Earth. Rambeau surmises that their light-based powers are linked through quantum entanglement and that they switch places when any of the three use their powers simultaneously. They join up at a Skrull refugee colony on planet Tarnax, which Danvers helped found and where a peace treaty is being negotiated with the Kree. When talks break down, Dar-Benn rips open another jump point which siphons the atmosphere from Tarnax to restore breathable air to Hala. After a hasty effort to evacuate the colony, Danvers, Rambeau, and Kamala form a team that Kamala names "the Marvels". Danvers explains that Dar-Benn's repeated rupturing of jump points is causing instability in the network and endangering the entire universe. They deduce that Dar-Benn is targeting planets that are meaningful to Danvers, whom Dar-Benn blames for the desolation of Hala.

The Marvels reach the water planet Aladna and warn the locals before Dar-Benn arrives and tears open a jump point, drawing the planet's water to Hala. Her final plan is to seize the energy from Earth's sun to restore that of Hala's sun. Dar-Benn steals Kamala's Band and attempts to use both Bands, but this destroys Dar-Benn, ends the Marvels' entanglement, and leaves behind a rupture between realities. Kamala reclaims the Bands and joins Danvers to energize Rambeau, allowing her to close the hole from the other side, but stranding her in the process. Kamala returns to Earth and Danvers flies into Hala's sun, using her power to restore it.

The short-lived team-up inspires Kamala to seek out other young heroes and form a new group, starting with Kate Bishop. In a mid-credits scene, Rambeau awakes in a parallel universe where she is greeted by Binary—an alternate version of her mother Maria—and the mutant scientist Hank McCoy.

Cast edit

Tessa Thompson reprises her role from previous MCU films as Valkyrie,[24] and Hailee Steinfeld reprises her role as Kate Bishop from the Disney+ miniseries Hawkeye (2021).[25][26] Lashana Lynch reprises her role as Monica's mother, Maria Rambeau, from Captain Marvel. She also portrays an alternate version of Maria who goes by Binary,[27][25][26] appearing in the mid-credits scene alongside Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Hank McCoy / Beast. Grammer reprises his role from 20th Century Fox's X-Men films X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).[25][26] Leila Farzad and Abraham Popoola portray S.A.B.E.R. workers Talia and Dag, respectively,[18] and Daniel Ings portrays Kree scientist Ty-Rone.[28] Goose, Carol's pet Flerken who resembles a cat, is played by cats Nemo and Tango, replacing previous actors Reggie, Archie, Rizzo, and Gonzo from the first film.[6]

Production edit

Development edit

Ahead of the release of Captain Marvel (2019), star Brie Larson expressed interest in a sequel featuring the character Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel.[29] Producer Kevin Feige previously said there were plans to introduce Kamala to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) following the release of Captain Marvel, because Kamala is inspired by Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel;[30] Iman Vellani was later cast as Kamala for the Disney+ television miniseries Ms. Marvel (2022).[31] In March 2019, Feige said Marvel Studios had some "pretty amazing" ideas for a sequel,[32] which could either be set in the 1990s, like the first film, or the present day.[33] Lashana Lynch expressed interest in reprising her role of Maria Rambeau in a sequel, even if it was set in the present.[34] At the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con in July, Feige confirmed plans for a sequel.[35]

Official development began in January 2020, when Megan McDonnell entered negotiations to write the script after serving as a staff writer on Marvel Studios' Disney+ miniseries WandaVision (2021).[36] Larson was confirmed to return as Danvers,[5] but Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck were not expected to return after directing and co-writing the first film. The studio hoped to hire a female director to replace them. The film was expected to be set in the present day, and was aiming for a 2022 release.[36] In April 2020, Disney scheduled the film for release on July 8, 2022, filling the July 2022 date that the studio had previously reserved for an untitled Marvel film.[37] Nia DaCosta was hired to direct the film that August. Deadline Hollywood's Justin Kroll called this another sign of Marvel Studios adding diversity to its films due to DaCosta being the first Black woman hired as a director by the studio, adding that the film would likely break the record for the biggest-budgeted film directed by a Black woman.[38] The studio had also considered Olivia Wilde and Jamie Babbit as directors for the film,[39] but DaCosta was said to have been the frontrunner for some time.[38] DaCosta, a self-professed comic book nerd, developed the film with WandaVision producer Mary Livanos who gave her "creative latitude" to make the film she wanted.[40][41] Larson said DaCosta was the best person to direct the film and praised her pitch presentation.[42] Richard Newby of The Hollywood Reporter said DaCosta's hiring could bring new energy to the MCU and Captain Marvel franchise, saying she "enjoys challenging preconceived notions about the relationship between characters and the lore behind stories". Newby also felt the film could explore Danvers's story from the perspective of Maria Rambeau's daughter Monica, a Black woman in present-day America.[43] DaCosta's original pitch included Adam Warlock and time travel, but she was told that Warlock would be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) and the Disney+ series Loki (2021–present) already dealt with time travel stories.[44] DaCosta also cited Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005) in her pitch as a reference for the film, particularly for its fight scenes and ending sequence.[45]

Feige announced Captain Marvel 2 in December 2020, with a new release date of November 11, 2022. He confirmed DaCosta's involvement, revealed that Teyonah Parris would reprise her role as Monica Rambeau from WandaVision, and said Vellani would reprise her role as Kamala.[10] Parris was excited to work with DaCosta again after Candyman (2021), and to further explore Monica's relationship with Danvers as teased in WandaVision.[46] Larson felt it made sense narratively to have Kamala and Rambeau introduced to the MCU in other projects before the three characters meet in this film, something she had discussed with Feige "from the beginning".[6]

Pre-production edit

Pre-production work began by February 2021, when Zawe Ashton was cast as the film's villain.[47] By that time, all of the scripts for Ms. Marvel had been written so The Marvels creative team was able to read those to know what happens to Kamala in that series.[48] Principal photography was expected to begin at the end of May,[49] though some second unit filming began on April 9 in Jersey City, New Jersey,[50][51] under the working title Goat Rodeo,[50][52] to capture aerial footage, establishing shots, and green screen plates.[50][53] In May, Marvel Studios revealed that the sequel would be titled The Marvels.[54] Ethan Anderton of /Film noted that the title referred to both Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel, since the film's logo included the same stylized "S" from the Ms. Marvel series' logo.[55] Graeme McMillian at The Hollywood Reporter acknowledged this explanation, but also wondered if there was a connection with the 1994 comics series Marvels—which tells various Marvel Universe events from the perspective of a photographer—or with a project of the same name announced in 2020. He also wondered if "The Marvels" referred to a family of heroes, much like DC Comics' Marvel Family (now known as the Shazam Family).[56] Later that month, pre-production work began in the United Kingdom.[57]

Park Seo-joon was cast in an undisclosed role in mid-June, and was set to join the production after completing work on the film Concrete Utopia (2023).[58] His role was reported as Prince Yan of the planet Aladna.[59][20] Larson and Parris began preparing for filming the next month.[60][61] DaCosta said The Marvels would deal with "specific, personal, [and] sometimes sad things",[62] such as how people deal with pain and trauma,[63] but would have a lighter story than her films Little Woods (2018) and Candyman. She felt that she had more creative freedom on The Marvels than on her prior films.[62] Feige said the dynamic between Danvers, Kamala, and Rambeau was the center of the film and likened their team-up to the formation of the Avengers in The Avengers (2012). He revealed that The Marvels would have "fun cosmic elements", including some from Roy Thomas's 1971 "Kree–Skrull War" comic book storyline, with the story directly picking up from the ending of Captain Marvel. He described the film as tonally different from the MCU miniseries Secret Invasion (2023),[14] another Captain Marvel follow-up;[14] the series was believed to tie in with the film,[6] but The Marvels largely ignores the events of Secret Invasion. Matt Webb Mitovich at TVLine speculated that Marvel intended for The Marvels to be set before Secret Invasion, given that film had numerous previous release dates prior to Secret Invasion's June 2023 premiere, but that assumption "still leaves continuity issues all over the place".[64]

Filming edit

Principal photography was expected to begin on May 31, 2021,[49] but began on July 26, 2021[19] at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire,[19][49][62] and at Longcross Studios in Longcross, Surrey, England.[19][65] Sean Bobbitt was the cinematographer.[66] Larson confirmed that she had started filming on August 10,[67] and shortly after, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that he would reprise his MCU role as Nick Fury,[22] working on it in London at the same time as he was preparing to film Secret Invasion.[68] Filming for The Marvels took place in Tropea, Italy, beginning on August 27, including on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea.[69][70] On September 3, Park left for Los Angeles to begin filming.[71] Shortly after, Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff and Mohan Kapur were revealed to be reprising their respective roles as Kamala's older brother Aamir, mother Muneeba, and father Yusuf, from Ms. Marvel.[21][8] In October 2021, the film's release was delayed to February 17, 2023.[72] Park shot his scenes for two months, and completed filming in England by November 2.[73] Production designer Cara Brower said the film's scale and scope were massive, contrasting her work with DaCosta on Candyman.[74] The production created 54 sets at Pinewood and Longcross Studios for five different planets (including Aladna) and spaceships, the S.A.B.E.R. space station, Maria Rambeau's house, and the Khan family's house. DaCosta wanted each planet to have a distinct design.[19] In April 2022, the film's release was moved to July 28, 2023, swapping places with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, as that film was further along in production.[75][76] Filming of The Marvels wrapped by the middle of the following month.[77]

Post-production edit

Jackson revealed in mid-June 2022 that he would return to London in August to work on reshoots for The Marvels, before doing the same for Secret Invasion,[78] and Marvel was preparing for those reshoots by the end of July.[79] That month, Larson made a cameo appearance in the last episode of Ms. Marvel, "No Normal", through footage that DaCosta had filmed for The Marvels. DaCosta did not know the footage would be used this way when she filmed it, and its inclusion in Ms. Marvel was a surprise to directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah as well.[80] Filming for The Marvels occurred in early August in Battery Park in New York City to capture visual effects plates.[81] DaCosta was revealed in January 2023 to have also worked on the film's script alongside Elissa Karasik and Zeb Wells, who had respectively served as a writer on Loki and the MCU miniseries She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (2022),[82] though only DaCosta, McDonnell, and Karasik were credited.[83] In February 2023, the film's release was delayed to November 10, 2023, as Disney and Marvel Studios were re-evaluating their content output and costs.[84] This allowed more time for post-production.[85][86] Joanna Robinson of The Ringer reported in April that the film was undergoing a "massive overhaul" and reshoots,[87] which took place for four weeks to reportedly make the storyline coherent.[86]

The first trailer, released in April 2023, revealed that Ashton was playing Dar-Benn and Daniel Ings had been cast as Ty-Rone.[59][28] Lynch was then reported to be reprising her role as Maria Rambeau, alongside Cobie Smulders and Randall Park in their respective MCU roles as Maria Hill and Jimmy Woo,[27] although Smulders denied her involvement in June.[88] Also in June, Gary Lewis was revealed to have joined the cast,[89] portraying Emperor Dro'ge,[18] and Marvel Studios held a public test screening of the film in Texas. This was an "uncharacteristic" move by the studio and the screening was reportedly met with mixed responses.[86] Tessa Thompson was revealed to be reprising her MCU role of Valkyrie in the film when the final trailer was released in early November.[24] When the film was released soon after, Hailee Steinfeld and Kelsey Grammer were revealed to be in the film, reprising their respective roles of Kate Bishop from the Disney+ miniseries Hawkeye (2021) and Dr. Hank McCoy / Beast from 20th Century Fox's X-Men films X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).[25][26] Grammer was excited to return to his role, which he described as "a real character of gravitas and importance in our culture", and hoped it would lead to more MCU appearances.[90]

Catrin Hedström and Evan Schiff edited the film. Hedström previously worked with DaCosta on Candyman.[91][19] Ashton stated in February 2024 that they filmed an alternate ending where Danvers perished with Dar-Benn.[92] Visual effects for the film were created by Industrial Light & Magic, Rise FX, Rising Sun Pictures, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Trixter, Wētā FX, and Wylie Co. Tara DeMarco was the visual effects supervisor.[93]

Music edit

In January 2022, Laura Karpman was hired to compose the score for the film, after previously doing so for the first season of the MCU television series What If...? (2021) and Ms. Marvel.[94][95] DaCosta asked Karpman to write a new theme for the titular team rather than focusing on the individual characters, similar to how The Avengers focused on a team theme rather than individual character themes.[96][97] Karpman described the film's main theme, "Higher. Further. Faster. Together", as a chosen family theme that combines elements for Danvers, Rambeau, and Kamala. The theme ends with a choir chanting "higher, further, faster, together" in Latin. Dar-Benn's "slithery and jazzy" theme is mainly played on flutes and was inspired by the music of Herbie Hancock.[97] John Ottman's X-Men themes from X2 (2003) and X-Men: Days of Future Past are heard during the mid-credits scene.[26]

A suite that Karpman wrote to take the main theme "through paces", titled "The Marvels Suite", was performed at the Philadelphia Orchestra on June 3, 2023.[98] "Higher. Further. Faster. Together." premiered at the Last Night of the BBC Proms on September 9,[99] and was released as a digital single on November 2.[100] A soundtrack album for Karpman's score was released by Hollywood Records and Marvel Music on November 8.[101]

Marketing edit

Larson, Parris, and Vellani appeared at the 2022 D23 Expo to promote the film and show exclusive footage.[102] A teaser trailer, which featured the song "Intergalactic" by Beastie Boys, premiered on Good Morning America on April 11, 2023.[103] Edidiong Mboho of Collider felt the teaser "delivers on the charm and action the MCU is known for".[104] Charles Pulliam-Moore at The Verge said the trailer showed that Danvers, Rambeau, and Kamala "are going to end up making quite the team" and thought the 'place-switching' fight sequences could be the most inventive of the MCU.[9] Jackson's appearance in the teaser was considered by some commentators to be a spoiler for the end of Secret Invasion, as it indicated that Fury survives the events of the series despite speculation that the character could die by the end of it.[105][106] Marvel Studios and Bic partnered to create limited-edition pens inspired by the film, as well as the "Write with Might" sweepstakes that offered a chance to win a trip to the film's premiere.[107] Pita Pit was also partnered with Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures to launch the brand new limited edition smoothie "Banana Chai" to promote the film.[108] In September 2023, DaCosta expressed concern that she would be promoting the film on her own since the cast were not able to participate in marketing during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike.[109] The strike ultimately did not end until after the film's premiere, which was held in Las Vegas on November 7 without the cast.[110] Marvel collaborated with software company Autodesk to display a video of Goose, Danvers's cat-like pet Flerken, on the Sphere through November 13.[111] The strike ended on November 9, and Larson was booked to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon the next day to promote the film.[112]

Release edit

Theatrical edit

The Marvels premiered in Las Vegas on November 7, 2023.[110] It was released in South Korea on November 8,[20] and in the United States and China on November 10,[84][113] in IMAX,[114] ScreenX, and 4DX.[115] The film was initially not expected to have an IMAX release because Dune: Part Two was scheduled to be released on November 3 and would have access to all IMAX screens for five to six weeks.[116] IMAX Corporation CEO Richard Gelfond said the company would pivot to showing The Marvels in IMAX should Dune: Part Two be delayed by the SAG-AFTRA strike,[116] and this was confirmed in August when the film was moved to March 2024.[114][117] Before it was set for the November 2023 release date, The Marvels was scheduled for July 8, 2022,[37] November 11, 2022,[54] February 17, 2023,[72] and July 28, 2023.[75] It is part of Phase Five of the MCU.[118]

Home media edit

The film was released by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on digital download on January 16, 2024,[119] on Disney+ on February 7,[120] and on Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on February 13. It includes deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes.[119]

Reception edit

Box office edit

The Marvels grossed $84.5 million in the United States and Canada, and $121.6 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $206.1 million.[3] It is the lowest-grossing film in the MCU,[121] and underperformed at the box-office, falling short of its reported break-even point of $439.6 million, while reportedly needing to earn around $700 million to become profitable.[2][122] Some publications have labeled the film the first box-office bomb of the MCU franchise.[123] Despite this, it surpassed A Wrinkle in Time (2018) to become the highest-grossing film directed by a Black woman.[124]

In the United States and Canada, The Marvels was originally projected to gross around $60 million from 4,030 theaters in its opening weekend.[125] After making $21.3 million on its first day (including $6.6 million from Thursday night previews), estimates were lowered to $47–52 million. It went on to debut to $46.1 million, topping the box office and marking the best opening weekend for a Black female director. However, this also marked the lowest opening weekend for an MCU film, taking that record from The Incredible Hulk (2008).[126] In its second weekend, the film made $10.12 million and finished fourth behind newcomers The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, Trolls Band Together, and Thanksgiving.[127] This was a 78% drop from the first weekend, which was the biggest second-weekend drop for any Hollywood superhero film.[128] The Marvels made $6.4 million in its third weekend, finishing in sixth place.[129] On December 3, during the film's fourth weekend, Disney described the film's box office as "winding down" and said the studio would no longer report its weekend box office grosses, despite the film being expected to continue playing in theaters through the New Year's holiday. It had earned an additional $2.4 million in its fourth weekend, dropping out of the top 10 to 11th place.[121]

Discussing why the film's box office performance was so low, Anthony D'Alessandro of Deadline Hollywood rejected claims that the film was impacted by general "superhero fatigue" and instead blamed lackluster marketing and the overexposure of MCU content on Disney+.[126] Disney CEO Bob Iger also attributed the film's failure to the large amount of MCU content that Disney had produced for its streaming service, but he added that insufficient day-to-day supervision by Disney executives during production was partially to blame as well.[130] Multiple commentators took issue with this statement, with some pointing out that Marvel is known for having a lot of executive oversight on all of their projects. Others felt Iger was wrongfully putting all of the blame on DaCosta,[131][132] and noted several instances where DaCosta had appeared to be unfairly targeted by Disney before Iger's comments.[133][134] Gizmodo's James Whitbrook said the studio's "increasingly public critiques of DaCosta are just starting to feel weird", and he noted that The Marvels was not Disney's only 2023 film to fail at the box office.[133]

Critical response edit

The review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 62% with an average score of 5.9/10, based on 355 reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, "Funny, refreshingly brief, and elevated by the chemistry of its three leads, The Marvels is easy to enjoy in the moment despite its cluttered story and jumbled tonal shifts."[135] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 50 out of 100 based on 57 critics, indicating "mixed or average" reviews.[136] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B" on A+ to F scale, tied with Eternals (2021) and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023) for the lowest score of the MCU, while those polled by PostTrak gave it a 73% positive score.[126]

Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Lovia Gyarkye praised DaCosta's direction as "kinetic", and felt that the directing and the "intimate storytelling style" lets audiences see the main characters from "new and entertaining vantage points."[137] Abby Olcese, for Paste, rated the film an 8.5/10 and praised the film for playing with genre and pulling "aesthetics" from the Ms. Marvel streaming series; Olcese felt that "DaCosta's assured, efficient direction" was an example of what the MCU could have been if the franchise "hadn't gotten bogged down by gloopy effects and overblown lore".[138] In contrast, James Mottram of NME gave the film a 3/5 star rating and felt that the film "never musters the same level of engagement" as DaCosta's Candyman even with "a script that is chock full of good lines and a cast of willing participants".[139] Christy Lemire of RogerEbert.com gave the film a negative review with a 1.5 star rating, calling it "terrible" and opined that it is "the worst film yet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe" with only the musical moments as "an unexpected and much-needed delight".[140]

Despite mixed critical reception, the performances were praised. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian described the lead trio as "an entertaining intergalactic ensemble".[141] Peter Travers of ABC News similarly commended that "If there is such a thing as chemistry, Larson, Parris and Vellani have it."[142] Amelia Emberwing of IGN declared that Vellani "predictably steals the show".[143] Helen O'Hara of Empire praised the humor and emotional depth of Vellani's Kamala with the "two older heroes".[144] Christian Holub of Entertainment Weekly gave a lukewarm review of the film and opined that it was "a mixed bag that tries to juggle too many different characters and plotlines", but praised Vellani as a "shining star".[145]
