Director Comment About Upcoming Disney Film Doesn’t Bode Well

A new major project from Marvel Studios, titled The Marvels, designed to target women from all walks of life is set to hit the theaters soon. According to Mary Livanos, Executive Producer of The Marvels, the production team set out to create a film that women can relate to.

In an exclusive interview with Total Film, Livanos contrasted the upcoming production to the Avengers films by noting that usually one would have to wait for the characters to show up together in Avengers productions. She highlighted that with The Marvels, they were “excited to design a team-up featuring characters that women from all walks of life could relate to.”

Looking into the specifics of power entanglement that is seen in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film, Livanos admitted that the idea of location swapping harkens back to early Captain Marvel comics from the 1960s. In these comic, Mar-Vell (the first Captain Marvel) and human Rick Jones would swap places using magical Kree bracelets called Nega-Bands. In the film, the character Dar-Benn, the gender-swapped villain of The Marvels, appears to be wearing what could be the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of a Nega-Band in an official still from the film.

The film’s official description also confirms power entanglement, but does not provide any details on how it works. It states, “Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as The Marvels.”

While fans eagerly await the film’s premiere, they can only speculate on the specifics of power entanglement and its effects on the characters in the film. Hopefully, with the film’s release, those mysteries will be solved.
