The Marvels

If you want a movie with a fun and goofy plot mixed in with some military propaganda and a bit of coming age, then The Marvels is for you. Directed by Nia DaCosta, the movie is actually better than Captain Marvel, quite fun, effervescent and action packed performances that make you really immerse yourself in the comic book style storytelling that Marvel and DC pioneered so many ions ago.

Serving as the sequel to Captain Marvel and the 33rd installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the movie ties the TV shows Ms Marvel and WandaVision as well. The Marvels stars Captain Marvel of course, Ms. Marvel, and Photon. The latter went by the name Captain Marvel (played by the titular Brie Larson) at the beginning of her career in the comics while Ms. Marvel (played by Iman Vellani) was introduced in the Ms. Marvel series, and the final post-credit scene of the series is a teaser of the Marvels. Photon (played by Teyonah Parris), the daughter of Carol Danver’s best friend, was first introduced as a child in the Captain Marvel movie. She is all grown up now and got her powers in WandaVision.

The Plot (credit: Wikipedia)
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.
