Captain Marvel 2’s Other Major Rumored Characters
Captain Marvel 2’s promotional drive is officially in full swing, giving fans the first glimpse at Brie Larson’s MCU comeback as the titular hero alongside newcomers to the big screen: Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau.
Aside from the main trio of heroes, the sequel also banners an unexpected ensemble of characters as announced by Disney and confirmed in The Marvels’ kick-off trailer.
Apart from people confirmed, these are other rumored characters set to appear!
After appearing in Thor: Love and Thunder, Tessa Thompson is rumored to return as King Valkyrie in The Marvels after an eagle-eyed fan noticed evidence of the character’s appearance in the sequel.
A Marvel fan discovered that Zenobia Shroff had unknowingly posted a set of headshots in a picture of her celebrating with the cast and crew of The Marvels, and one of them includes an image of Thompson as Valkyrie. It remains to be seen what her role would be, but there’s a chance that it could be a fun cameo at the tail-end of the movie.
Meanwhile, Lashana Lynch is another candidate to return since seeing her comeback in The Marvels would be fitting due to her important role as Maria Rambeau in the first film.
Although WandaVision confirmed Maria died during the five-year gap between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the character can easily return through flashbacks to reinforce the conflict between Monica and Carol in the movie.
In fact, an IMDb listing may have already confirmed Lynch’s role in the sequel after it was revealed that Thom Jones has joined the crew as the actress’ dialect coach.
The Marvels premieres in theaters on November 10.
