When Carol Danvers crashed by means of the roof of a constructing, and the digital camera moved all the way down to reveal it was a Blockbuster Video, Marvel followers knew they have been in for a blast from the previous, and the 90s atmosphere turned out to be a promoting level.
Now, nevertheless, comes the information that the Captain Marvel sequel will eschew the 90s nostalgia and happen within the current day. That being the case, can the sequel hope to high the $1 billion-grossing success of the unique?
What will the ‘Captain Marvel’ sequel be about?
Few particulars have been launched concerning the sequel that’s in improvement, however Screen Rant noticed that WandaVision is already serving as connective tissue, despite the fact that the TV present solely simply began capturing.
Set photographs of that present, which has been moved up from early 2021 to later in 2020, affirm that one of many characters is Monica Rambeau, whom we met as a baby within the first film.
Monica Rambeau is the daughter of Maria Rambeau, who was Carol Danvers’ BFF who served within the army together with her. The Captain Marvel sequel shares a author with WandaVision, Megan McDonnell, so Marvel’s well-known inter connectivity is going down behind the scenes as effectively.
We additionally stand to search out out simply what the Skrulls have been doing on the finish of Spider-Man: Far From Home – that scene is a contender for probably the most weird finish credit scene the MCU has but provided.
All of this means that after Black Widow, MCU motion pictures could have extra of a cosmic/intergalactic really feel, with The Eternals arising in November and subsequent yr’s motion pictures together with Doctor Strange within the Multiverse of Madness (additionally linked with WandaVision) and Thor: Love and Thunder.
The first film made probably the most of its setting, however not its sound
With 90s music figuring so prominently within the film, Marvel followers thought Captain Marvel may supply a throwback soundtrack, as the 2 Guardians of the Galaxy motion pictures did. That by no means got here to move, although. The solely soundtrack issued from Captain Marvel was of the rating.
In equity, nevertheless, the soundtrack within the Guardians of the Galaxy motion pictures was virtually a personality in itself – a lot in order that the soundtrack really revived the recognition of the long-dormant cassette. By distinction, Captain Marvel’s 90s track rating felt extra like window dressing to determine the time interval and that’s all.
With Captain Marvel in a position to journey between galaxies, and together with her powers being so immense, Marvel would in all probability do effectively to not tie her all the way down to the final decade of the 20th century. Besides that, time journey figured prominently in each Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, so for the sake of selection, Marvel in all probability needs to keep away from that trope in the meanwhile.
Where else may we see Captain Marvel?
With the Captain Marvel 2 script nonetheless in all probability unfinished, will probably be fairly a while earlier than Marvel will announce a launch date. Screen Rant factors out that Marvel Studios has two launch dates in 2022 that don’t have titles introduced; February 18th and November 5. It’s potential Brie Larson and her workforce will return then. It is just not recognized if administrators Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will return.
However, it’s not out of the query that Carol Danvers may seem in at the very least one in all Marvel’s motion pictures by means of subsequent yr. The Eternals, a few race of super-beings would appear to be probably the most logical match as a result of they match into the cosmic heroes milieu.
However, she could cameo in a extra earthbound film, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. That film’s director is Destin Daniel Cretton, who has directed Larson in three motion pictures: Short Term 12, The Glass Castle, and Just Mercy, which is in theaters now. Larson may need helped Cretton get the job – now she has a favor to return.
