Last week, it was revealed that Marvel Studios’ The Marvels has been pushed back from its summer date to November of this year, and now Kevin Feige has been hyping the Captain Marvel sequel to Entertainment Weekly, describing the upcoming team-up between Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau as “akin to the first Avengers movie.”
“There’s something immensely powerful about seeing Monica and Kamala and Carol together in a frame”, said Feige. “To me, it’s only akin to the first Avengers movie and seeing the six of them together in a frame. It’s chill-inducing. They’re so great together, and they all have different histories with another.”
Feige went on to discuss Vellani’s Kamala Khan in particular, who is following up her own Disney+ series by making the jump to the big screen, the producer teasing: “I also know — and this is a spoiler — she essentially steals The Marvels. The great thing about Kamala in her show, and now in this movie, is that she’s not unlike Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in Civil War. She can’t believe she’s with these other heroes and can’t believe that she finds herself in these places. And that’s fun because we want to be that. I want to be that.”
