Spoiler alert! Marvel just dropped the final trailer for The Marvels, and it's got some exciting surprises for fans. The trailer not only shows the characters we were expecting, like Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau, Ms. Marvel, Nick Fury, and Dar-Benn, but it also introduces Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson.
In the trailer, Valkyrie gives Captain Marvel some words of encouragement, saying, "You can stand tall without standing alone." But the big question is, how big a role does Valkyrie play in the movie? Is it just a quick cameo, or does she have a more significant part in the battle against Dar-Benn? Up until now, we hadn't heard anything about The Marvels bringing in any characters from the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially not a character like Valkyrie from the Thor movies. So, you can say it's a bit of a pleasant surprise.
In the same trailer, Monica Rambeau drops a bombshell, saying, "there’s a different reality bleeding into ours." Now, this is where fans start to speculate. Many people are thinking about the X-Men, and we have an idea as to why. We already know that Ms. Marvel is a mutant, as we saw in her TV show. And last month, another The Marvels trailer had a cryptic message that read, "What Comes Next." What's interesting is that all of the letters in that message fade out except for the letter X. Could this possibly be a hint at the X-Men finally making their way into the MCU? Although we have yet to find out for sure, we can definitely say it's got fans buzzing with excitement.
So, all in all, the final trailer for The Marvels has left us and millions of other fans with some really juicy questions. How does Valkyrie fit into the story, and what's this "different reality" that Monica is talking about? Is it the X-Men? With Marvel, you never really know until you're in the theater, and that's part of what makes it all so thrilling. Be sure to check out the trailer if you haven't already!
