The Marvels Reportedly Includes a Major Post-Credits Cameo
Your Nerd Side Halloween Special part 01
More than a week before its theatrical debut, a brand-new rumor about The Marvels started circulating online, teasing a potential surprise cameo appearance. According to industry scooper Daniel Richtman on X, The Marvels might feature "someone who was the perfect casting for a certain role and never got his chance to do justice with it," hinting that the rumored cameo is potentially an actor who has already appeared in a Marvel movie before. In addition, scooper CanWeGetSomeToast also seemingly teased that the upcoming superhero team-up movie might have a connection with Deadpool 3 and Avengers: Secret Wars. However, fans should note that these are all just speculations at the moment, as excitement for The Marvels’ premiere ramped up.
This new cameo rumor comes after it was recently revealed that a major character from Thorfranchise is seemingly joining The Marvels to help titular trio in their intergalactic adventure. The Asgardian cameo was teased in a recent TV spot, which gave fans a glimpse of a Bifrost blasting into Captain Marvel’s ship. Even though the teaser didn’t confirm the Asgardian’s identity, it is heavily speculated that this might be Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie. Her appearance was actually hinted back in Jan. 2022, when eagle-eyed fans caught a glimpse of her headshot in a behind-the-scenes image from The Marvels production.
Thompson’s Valkyrie cameo in The Marvels won’t be a far-fetched idea, especially when the Thor: Love and Thunder star previously collaborated with director Nia DaCosta in her feature directorial debut Little Woods in 2018. Since making their respective MCU debuts, many fans have been shipping Valkyrie with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. Thompson previously addressed the potential romance between the two heroes, revealing that she’ll definitely support it when it happens.
What to Expect in The Marvels?
The Marvels is directed by DaCosta from a screenplay she co-wrote with Megan McDonnell and Elissa Karasik. In addition to Larson, the Phase 5 film will also be led by WandaVision's Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/ Ms. Marvel, and Zawe Ashton as Kree villain Dar-Benn. As seen in the official trailers, Carol, Monica and Kamala have no choice but to team-up after discovering that their powers got somehow entangled with each other. According to the official synopsis, this might be linked to a Kree revolutionary, who has a personal vendetta against Captain Marvel.
In a previous interview, DaCosta opened up about the interesting dynamic between the leading trio. "I thought it would be cool to map an estranged family history and sister story onto them," she said. "Carol’s the oldest, the prodigal, then there’s the middle sister Monica, who Carol knew as a kid and promised she’d come back [to] but then never did. Kamala is the youngest, who hasn’t had the experience of living with this older sister but idolizes her. Carol’s a bit jaded at the beginning of the film [but] Kamala reminds her how amazing she is."
The Marvels arrives in theaters on Nov. 10.
