The Marvels’ First Reactions Are Here, and All Over the Place
The first impressions for The Marvels have hit the internet, and while for some the Marvel Studios flick that soars by the might of its trio of heroes, for others that chemistry is brought down by some wider issues
Nia DaCosta’s The Marvels showcases Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) stepping into a team of her own alongside Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani); early social media reactions are largely divided on whether or not the film can overcome some pacing and plotting issues with a sense of fun. Vellani’s enthusiasm and earnest portrayal of Kamala also earned very high praise, as did the dynamic between Kamala, Danvers and Rambeau.
