“Higher, further, faster, baby.” Iconic words, spoken by the hero that almost single-handedly beat Thanos in a fistfight. Carol Danvers, a.k.a. “Captain Marvel” is officially returning to the big screen after nearly four years away in an epic cross-over feature. Danvers, played by Academy Award winner Brie Larson, will be teaming up with Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) in the latest edition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “The Marvels.”
Captain Marvel helms from an ungodly amount of Marvel Comics lore and following her controversial introduction to the MCU, against the greater majority of enraged fanboys alike, the average MCU fan quickly realized that Danvers is one of the most powerful Avengers to ever join the infamous supergroup, a force not to be trifled with.
This marks the first official crossover cinematic edition of the MCU, where audiences will require at least a passing knowledge of the events that took place in both “WandaVision” and “Ms. Marvel.” Two Disney+ originals, that introduced Parris’ character “Photon” and Vellani’s character “Ms. Marvel,” respectively. “The Marvels” centers on the consequences of Danvers shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe in the aftermath of “Captain Marvel”. When one of her missions sends her through a wormhole that entangles her powers with Rambeau’s and Khan’s, chaos ensues. The unlikely trio must team up to take on the otherworldly forces and determine whether or not they are truly stronger together than they are apart.
What this film means for the current state of things in the MCU is anyone’s guess. Following the self contained events of “The Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3” and the potentially cataclysmic events of “Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantamania” and whatever is actually happening in “Loki” season 2, audiences are curious to see how the latest installment of the widely successful and lucrative franchise with play out in the greater scheme of the MCU.
With ungodly power, comes a plethora of tattoo inspiration. We’ve gathered the best “Captain Marvel” tattoos in the universe in order to celebrate the latest edition to the MCU.
