Although the amount of MCU movies has slowed down in the past few years, fans are always excited for another installment. The Marvels was previously teased in the Ms. Marvel finale, but after the first trailer for the film and the official synopsis release, fans are developing all-new theories about the plot of the movie.

In the Ms. Marvel finale mid-credits scene, Kamala Khan's bangle glows purple, and she then seems to trade places with Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). Carol ends up in Kamala’s bedroom, and Kamala ends up … somewhere in the multiverse. But what exactly will The Marvels be about and who will be in the upcoming film?

Much of the main cast for ‘The Marvels’ includes familiar faces.

The film brings together three “Marvels”: Brie Larson as the original Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers), Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau (who, in the comics, becomes Captain Marvel) and Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel).

Also returning to the MCU are Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Randall Park will reprise his role as Jimmy Woo.

Zenobia Shroff, who plays Muneeba (Kamala’s mom) in Ms. Marvel, accidentally spoiled Kamala’s family’s return to The Marvels. Zenobia will appear on the MCU silver screen alongside Mohan Kapur, who plays Kamala’s father, and Saagir Shaikh, who plays Kamala’s brother, Amir.

What will 'The Marvels' be about? Marvel Studios has released a new synopsis to help.

While details about the plot of The Marvels have been kept relatively secret, Marvel Studios has officially released a new synopsis for the film in tandem with the trailer. It reads, "...Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe."

The synopsis continues, "When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as 'The Marvels.'"

Many fans guessed that Kamala Khan's magical bangle and Carol's powers were intertwined thanks to the end of Ms. Marvel, but the new trailer states outright that all three of the Marvels' powers are intertwined, leading to many intergalactic hijinks.

Others have theorized that the markings on Kamala's bangle are similar to the Ten Rings, leading ultimately to another team-up with Shang-Chi. Fans will have to wait and find out more as the release date draws nearer.

The Marvels will premiere in theaters on Nov. 10, 2023.
