Is Marvel’s decision to make The Marvels a Captain Marvel sequel a smart move?


1. Continuity: Making “The Marvels” a Captain Marvel sequel allows for a continuation of the established story and characters.
2. Familiarity: Fans of the first Captain Marvel movie might be drawn to “The Marvels” to see what happens next.
3. Potential for character development: This decision could provide an opportunity for further exploration and growth of the existing characters.
4. Potential for expanded universe: The inclusion of Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau in “The Marvels” could open doors to more diverse and interconnected storylines.


1. Lack of representation: If the TV spot is indicative of the actual film, the reduced focus on Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau could be disappointing for fans eager to see more of these characters.
2. Missed storytelling potential: By shifting the focus away from Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau, there is a chance that their stories and arcs may not receive the attention they deserve.
3. Narrative confusion: Attracting audiences expecting a direct sequel to Captain Marvel but with reduced screen time for key characters could raise confusion and disappointment.
4. Possible missed opportunity for new viewers: Skipping over Kamala and Monica’s stories might alienate potential new fans who were intrigued by their characters in the previous Captain Marvel film.

In an unusual turn of events, I came across a peculiar TV spot for The Marvels. What caught my attention was its surprising lack of presence from Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), who played significant roles in previous promotions.
