When Captain Marvel arrived on the scene back in her 2019 self-titled movie, Thor found his spot as the strongest Avenger usurped by Carol Danvers, with Nick Fury’s first superhero friend turning out to be a key ally in the battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame. We’re all expecting Carol to rejoin the team once they assemble again in The Kang Dynasty, but let’s not forget that Brie Larson is about to form her own superhero team first in next summer’s The Marvels.
And, when you think about it, it’s just possible that the Marvels could make an even bigger impact on the franchise than Carol did on her own. Just in case you need reminding, the Captain Marvel sequel will bring Larson’s heroine together with a couple of other notable superpowered women we’ve just met in Phase Four — Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau (first seen in WandaVision) and Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan (as introduced in Ms. Marvel). Together, the trio — whisper it — might even be more powerful than the Avengers themselves.
