Carol Danvers has her mighty powers challenged and must learn to work with a new team as reality constantly warps when they use their abilities.
Nick Fury is currently fighting a war with shape-shifting enemies on Marvel’s Secret Invasion, over on on Disney+. However, The Marvels will bring our favorite eye-patched former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. back in contact with his old friend, Carol Danvers, as he patrols threats that travel through our solar system from his space station, S.A.B.E.R. Danvers will also come face-to-face with her biggest fan, whom audiences met in her own show on the streamer, Ms. Marvel. Both will also now come in contact with Monica Rambeau, who had a prominent introduction in the series, Wandavision.
Marvel has just released the new trailer, which brings us a bit more of a peek into the predicament the unlikely team will find themselves in. Here, we get more of an explanation of how each Marvel teleports to the locations of the others when using their powers. Plus, despite Captain Marvel once contributing her effort to stopping Thanos with the rest of the Avengers, here she must learn that even with her great abilities that make her incredibly powerful, she does not have to be the sole protector and fighter of Earth.
The official synopsis reads,
In Marvel Studios’ The Marvels, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as The Marvels.
