We thought the next Captain Marvel sequel would be another solo adventure, but The Marvels is going to give us a trio of cosmic Marvel gals. We don’t have any official previews for the movie yet, but some merch leaks online have given us a look at Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel), Monica Rambeau (Photon), and Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel).
Check them out:

Though the finale of Ms. Marvel did confirm Carol’s short-sleeved costume, the shirt does give us a look at Ms. Marvel’s updated outfit, as well as an official superhero costume for Photon (or Spectrum—she has a bunch of different names in the comics).
We had already met a younger Monica in Captain Marvel, and WandaVision confirms that she works for SWORD and has hinted that she’s received her mutant abilities. As for Kamala’s connection, the end of Ms. Marvel implies that she’s somehow teleported locations with Carol, and it could be up to Carol and Monica to find her somewhere in space.
I’ll admit, I was expecting Carol to get the spotlight one more time before they decided to give her a team-up, but maybe incoming director Nia DaCosta has an interesting direction to take the characters. I suspect the movie is going to take place largely in space, but I wouldn’t mind having Carol come back to Earth and see what she’s missed out on.
The Marvels is set to hit theaters July 28, 2023. For now, you can catch Black Panther: Wakanda Forever now screening in theaters.
