Wait, what? Is Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau going to replace Brie Larson in ‘Captain Marvel 2’?
Before the Disney Investor Day on December 10, 2020, a big rumour took over the internet telling people that Disney isn’t happy with Brie Larson and that her character might entirely retire from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The rumour was further ascertained when Kevin Feige, President of the MCU, confirmed at the Disney Investor Day presentation that Teyonah Parris will star in the sequel. Does that mean Brie Larson has actually been replaced by Monica Rambeau in ‘Captain Marvel 2’, who in the comics has gone by Captain Marvel even before Carol Danvers?
Is it really the end of the era of Larson being Captain Marvel? Or is this all just a misconception?

Is Monica Rambeau to be the end of Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers in ‘Captain Marvel 2’?
Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau to replace Brie Larson in ‘Captain Marvel 2’?
If we recall, Carol Danvers last appeared in ‘Avengers: Endgame’, spending much of her time out in the galaxy but returning to take part in the big battle with Thanos, only to get whipped by him. So, you see, the character was basically written out of the movie. Marvel buffs are in for some major news. At the Disney Investor Day presentation, Kevin Feige confirmed that big things lie in store for the MCU in the future. ‘Captain Marvel 2’ is confirmed to include Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau alongside Brie Larson’s titular hero. This means Larson will be reprising her character in the sequel.
Both Photon and Ms. Marvel have powers relating to energy absorption, which fits in excellently with MCU Carol’s abilities. That leaves us with the question of whether the story will revolve around Carol or will her character be taken over by the other two superheroes? Or is there a possibility to see the three Captain Marvels simultaneously on-screen?
Iman Vellani – Ms. Marvel star joins ‘Captain Marvel 2’: Confirmed.
Kevin Feige’s announcement has confirmed ties between the MCU and the companion series in Disney+. Neither character’s entry is surprising, given that both are inspired by Carol Danvers in the comics. While Kamala aka Ms. Marvel knows Carol from afar and idolizes her so much that she takes the superhero name in her honour, Monica Rambeau has a history with Captain Marvel (played by Brie Larson).
It will be interesting to watch how the MCU will translate all the relationships on screen. Will they all be taking on a villain or an intergalactic event of catastrophic energy levels? Or will they go spiraling around their personal feuds?
Brie Larson is going nowhere – at least until Captain Marvel 2.
What will the plot be like?
Since both Rambeau and Ms. Marvel are inspired by Carol Danvers in the comics, many of their powers complement Captain Marvel’s, including the ability to fly, shoot energy from hands, and more. Brie Larson has known Rambeau from birth and considered her family before her disappearance in ‘Captain Marvel’. But given the events of Carol’s intergalactic travel and time-hopping, they both may appear roughly to be of the same age in the sequel.
Monica has been immortal in the comics, but perhaps the team will have a more creative angle, like a slowed down the aging process. And as far as Kamala is concerned, she may finally meet her idol. What we do not know is whether Captain Marvel will be the idol Ms. Marvel considers her, or will there be a twist? Tell us your expectations from ‘Captain Marvel 2’ in the comments.
