A new TV spot for The Marvels teases a connection between Zawe Ashton’s Dar-Benn and Josh Brolin’s Thanos. However, Disney may have also spoiled the Mad Titan’s surprise return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Marvels seems to be the Phase 4 movie fans have been begging for, filled to the brim with connections to other MCU properties. The newest TV spot cranks things up to eleven, featuring The Mad Titan Thanos speaking over footage of Zawe Ashton’s Dar-Benn, with the brand new line: “There will always be more to finish my work.”
However, despite many people concluding this means Thanos will make his return to the MCU in The Marvels, it’s not the only option. It’s possible Marvel is simply using cut dialogue from his prior appearances to hype up Zawe Ashton’s Dar-Benn, or even combining other sentences together to make a new one. While only time will tell, MCU fans can judge themselves with the TV spot below.
The Talent Behind The Marvels
The Marvels is set to be a groundbreaking film in many ways. Not only does it feature three powerful female superheroes, but it also has a female director, Nia DaCosta, who previously directed the horror flick Candyman. The movie features a cast that includes Zawe Ashton, Park Seo-joon, Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur.
“She has a really calm vibe, too,” Iman Vellani said about DaCosta. “These movies are not easy to make at all. There’s like a million, bajillion little moving pieces. She and [executive producer] Mary [Livanos] did such a great job to keep morale high. Even if there were days where they wanted to rip people’s heads off, they would never show it and never put their stress on anyone else.”
In addition to directing The Marvels, Nia DaCosta also co-wrote the script alongside Megan McDonnell, Elissa Karasik, and Zeb Wells. During an interview, DaCosta described the movie as being “full comic book madness,” teasing what audiences can expect from the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe project.
