Total Film has unveiled fresh magazine covers centered around the highly-anticipated Marvel Cinematic Universe movie The Marvels. The primary cover showcases three of Marvel’s powerhouses: Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau, and Kamala Khan. All three are prominently displayed, donning their iconic superhero attire, seemingly geared up and ready for action.

The second Total Film cover throws an intriguing twist into the mix. Those who remember the extraterrestrial cat Goose from Captain Marvel are in for a treat. The magazine teases the resurgence of Flerkens, the intriguing alien species to which Goose belongs. The display of multiple Flerkens on the cover suggests they might have a significant role in the sequel.

“I’m excited that the MCU has three lead women, all from very diverse backgrounds, and they’re all baddies in their own way,” Parris said in a recent interview with EW. “It’s going to be really exciting just to see these smart, fun, intelligent, and troubled women find their way.”

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.
