A new TV spot and clip from The Marvels has surfaced on social media. The TV spot is of particular interest as it starts with a dire, prophetic warning from Thanos. Is Zaw Ashton’s Dar-Benn the successor of the Mad Titan’s legacy?

The TV spot also reveals that the bangle that Dar-Benn wields allows her to absorb the powers of Captain Marvel, Photon and Kamala Khan making the Kree villain more than a match for the incredibly powerful trio. Will Dar-Benn get her hands on the other bangle in Kamala’s possession before the film ends?
In a previous issue of Total Film magazine, producer Mary Livanos explained, “In Ms. Marvel, we learned that the bangle, paired with some other form of power, can force a temporary hole in space and time to lead to somewhere else.“
She continued, “With the power of both bangles, more is definitely possible. And we see the culmination of that over the course of this movie. It definitely leads to plentiful opportunities for the future of the MCU, whatever the Avengers and Secret Wars teams may want to do with them.”
The brief clip picks up where Ms. Marvel’s post-credit scene ended, with Danvers transported to Kamala’s bedroom. It’s somewhat of a weird scene as neither Danvers nor Kamala’s parents seem phased by the world’s most popular and strongest Avenger suddenly walking into their living room. Hopefully, this top-down, vertical slice is expanded upon when the film is released.
After a series of release date changes, The Marvels is currently slated to hit theaters on November 10, 2023.
The Marvels will star Brie Larson (Short Term 12, Fast X) as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Teyonah Parris (The Photograph, Candyman) as Monica Rambeau/Photon, Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel, Zawe Ashton (Not Safe For Work, Nocturnal Animals) as Dar-Benn.
Also appearing in supporting roles are Gary Lewis (His Dark Materials, The Bay), Park Seo-joon (Itaewon Class, Concrete Utopia), and Samuel L. Jackson (Secret Invasion).
Teaming up changes
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. 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 Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as ‘The Marvels.’
