We're back in the cinema for the 34th MCU movie The Marvels. The funny and action filled team up between Captain Marvel, Ms Marvel and Photon.
Synopsis for our The Marvels 2023 Review
Written by: Nia DaCosta
Directed by: Nia DaCosta, Megan McDonnell and Elissa Karasik
The collapse of the Supreme Intelligence leads to a civil war among the Kree species in their home world of Hala. The conflict renders the planet barren as it loses its air, water, and their sun begins to die.
Dar-Benn, the new leader of the Kree, retrieves one half of the Quantum Bands, of which Kamala Khan has the other half. Dar-Benn harnesses the power of the Band, and pairs it with her staff, Universal Weapon, to tear apart a jump point in space with the aim of stripping the resources required from planets linked to The Annihilator, aka Carol Danvers, to repair her home world of Hala. The resulting anomaly is discovered by the Strategic Aerospace, Biophysics and Exolinguistic Response or S.A.B.E.R.
Meanwhile, Nick Fury, now residing at the S.A.B.E.R. space station calls in Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau to investigate a jump point anomaly near the space station. When Rambeau touches it, she, Danvers, and Khan switch places through teleportation. The switching causes the three to fight each others' Kree enemies, leaving the Khans' house destroyed in their wake.
As the three women return to their original places, Fury and Rambeau visit Khan on Earth. As Khan eagerly demonstrates her powers, she switches places with Danvers. The group surmises that the light-based powers of Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau, and Ms Marvel are linked through quantum entanglement, and that they switch places when any of them use their powers at the same time.
The three join up at a Skrull refugee colony on the planet Tarnax, where talks of resettlement have dissolved. Dar-Benn rips open another jump point, which siphons the atmosphere of Tarnax into Hala to try and restore its air. After a hasty effort to evacuate the colony, Danvers, Rambeau, and Kamala form a team informally referred to by Kamala as "the Marvels".
Danvers informs the others of the legend that the Quantum Bands had been used to create the jump point transportation network; the three became entangled due to their mutual contact with its energy when Dar-Benn disrupted it, with Dar-Benn's repeated rupturing of jump points causing instability to the network and endangering the universe.
Dar-Benn reaches the planet Aladna, where she tears open a jump point to draw the ocean water into Hala. Her final plan is to take the energy of Earth's sun to restore that of Hala. The Marvels fight and subdue Dar-Benn, but she steals Kamala's Band and uses both bracelets in conjunction to tear open another hole in space. The effort in doing so destroys Dar-Benn and leaves behind an opening into the multiverse.
After Khan reclaims the Bands, she and Danvers use their combined powers to energize Rambeau, allowing her to close the hole from the other side, but leaving her stranded in the process in the other universe. Danvers flies into Hala's sun and uses her power to restore it.
The short-lived team-up with Danvers and Rambeau inspires Kamala to seek out other heroes and form a new group, starting with Kate Bishop.
In a mid-credits scene, Monica Rambeau awakes in a parallel universe where she is greeted by an alternate version of her mother Maria (Binary) and the mutant Hank McCoy aka Beast of The X-Men.
