Were Marvel production studios banking on this component to launch a new plot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)? Obviously not. Since Thanos, the saga has struggled to find a character of stature to take over and the Marvels are no match.
In this 33rd installment, Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel (still played by Brie Larson), finds herself allied with two partners from the Disney series WandaVision and Miss Marvel: Monica Rambeau, played by Teyonah Parris, and Kamala Khan, played by Iman Vellani . The three heroines find themselves linked by their powers which, when they use them, teleport them one in place of the other. After acclimatizing to this ability, the trio, dominated by Captain Marvel, decides to save the universe, threatened by Dar-Benn (played by Zawe Ashton), the unimpressive villain of the story. The lack of importance of this character is reflected in particular in the final fight scene; notable not for its stakes but for its speed, where The Marvels win without much suspense.
What we will remember from the latest film in the saga - omitting the "musical comedy" minute on a planet where the characters speak while singing - is its "general public" style. Far from being the longest Marvel film, director Nia DaCosta preferred to focus on short scenes - sometimes very short - guaranteeing a certain dynamism in the story. Add to that the ingredients of a good family film: a little humor and a touch of emotion, we obtain an entertaining film but of little importance for the evolution of the Marvel universe.
