There has been a lot of confusion about whether there are two Captain Marvel movies or not. Let’s clear the air and get to the bottom of this.
What is Captain Marvel?
Captain Marvel is a superhero from the Marvel Comics universe, who was initially introduced in 1967. The character has undergone several transformations over the years, but the most popular version is Carol Danvers, who first appeared in 1977.
The First Captain Marvel Movie
In 2019, Marvel Studios released their first Captain Marvel movie, which starred Brie Larson as Carol Danvers. The film was set in the 1990s and followed Danvers as she became one of the universe’s most powerful heroes after Earth gets caught in the middle of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.
So, Is There a Second Captain Marvel Movie?
Yes! In December 2021, Marvel Studios released their second Captain Marvel movie called “The Marvels”. This film features not only Brie Larson as Carol Danvers but also Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau (who appeared in WandaVision), and Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel (who will also have her own Disney+ series coming soon).
What Can Fans Expect From “The Marvels”?
While not much is known about “The Marvels” plot-wise, it has been confirmed that it will take place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame”. It has also been teased that there will be a strong focus on female superheroes and their relationships with each other.
To sum it up – yes, there are two Captain Marvel movies. The first one was released in 2019 and starred Brie Larson as Carol Danvers.
The second movie, “The Marvels”, was released in December 2021 and features Larson, Teyonah Parris, and Iman Vellani as female superheroes. While we might not know much about the plot of “The Marvels” yet, one thing is for sure – fans can expect a lot of dynamic female-led action.
