Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Lashana Lynch), and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) are returning for “The Marvels.” In the upcoming movie, they’re swapping places every time someone uses their powers. There’s at least one villain on deck, an unknown figure played by a technical newcomer to the MCU, Zawe Ashton (“Mr. Malcom’s List”).
Since “Secret Invasion” is also on the menu, we know the Kree are far from done with Captain Marvel. Rumors suggest Ashton will play a Kree General looking to square up with their former recruit. There are two perfect minor characters to slam together into a new, fiercer foe. Ael-Dan and Dar-Benn are Kree Generals from the comic books, and in their sole major outing, they usurped the Emperor and established joint rule. As the MCU’s Kree are already under the thumb of the artificial Supreme Intelligence, their synthetic ruler will probably send a new, improved Kree General with a riff on at least one of these names to strike out at the Marvels.
