Brie Larson returns as Captain Marvel, who finds herself in a destabilizing universe in The Marvels.

Marvel Studios might not have a panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year, but it did release a shiny full trailer for The Marvels, part of Phase Five of the MCU, and directed by Nia DaCosta (Candyman).

As previously reported, Brie Larson and Iman Vellani reprise their respective roles as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel for the film, along with Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, daughter of Carol/Captain Marvel’s BFF Maria. Monica grew up to become a SWORD agent, but thanks to the events of WandaVision, she can also absorb and manipulate energy as Spectrum. As for Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, she’s a teenage Pakistani American who lives in Jersey City. She’s a major comic books fan, worships Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, and fantasized about becoming a superhero someday. Her powers stem from the Terrigen Mists, released globally in a crossover storyline, the “Inhumanity.” The mists activated dormant Inhuman cells in several people, Kamala included.

Naturally, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) will be on hand to lend some assistance, along with fan-favorite Goose the cat-shaped Flerken (played by two cats, Nemo and Tango). Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur will reprise their Ms. Marvel roles as Kamala’s older brother Aamir, mom Muneeba, and dad Yusuf, respectively. Lashana Lynch will be back as Maria Rambeau (one assumes in a flashback), and Randall Park returns as Jimmy Woo. There’s also a new villain called Dar-Benn, played by Zawe Ashton—the aforementioned Kree revolutionary, who wields an Accuser’s hammer. Park Seo-joon (Parasite) has also been cast as a yet-unnamed ally of Carol, and Colin Stoneley plays a Kree scientist named Papp-Tonn.
