The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios are bracing for disaster as the release of The Marvels (2023) nears.

Captain Marvel first blasted onto the screen in Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s Captain Marvel (2019). Introducing Academy Award-winner Brie Larson as the titular hero, Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, the movie went on to score $1 billion at the global box office.

Larson would reprise her role as the cosmic-powered hero in Avengers: Endgame (2019), alongside Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021). This year, she will join forces with Monica Rambeau/Photon and Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, played by Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani, respectively.

The Marvels comes by the way of director Nia DaCosta and will debut on November 10, 2023. The 33rd film in Kevin Feige’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Marvels joins the likes of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) as the next installment in Marvel Phase Five.

After a string of lukewarm responses from audiences regarding both the big-screen movies and the small-screen TV shows, thanks, in part, to superhero fatigue, anticipation for The Marvels is high. That said, The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios will seemingly be bracing for disaster after long-range box office projections put The Marvels in the $50-75 million opening weekend range.

This is far off the opening for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which, as many know, went on to close out at the box office with one of the worst performances in the live-action Marvel Universe’s history. There is hope, though, as Captain Marvel did go on to take over $1 billion, but time will tell if the movie’s large takings were more of a result of it being sandwiched between Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame, than anything else.

Now, as DaCosta’s The Marvels nears, Disney is prepping audiences for the Captain Marvel sequel by filling them in on what they need to know about the trio of characters that make up this titular group of cosmic-powered superheroes.
