Brisk, easy-breezy fun, Marvel Studio’s latest cinematic entry is a witty, emotional return for the maligned Captain Marvel, as Oscar-winner Brie Larson returns to the franchise alongside small-screen superstar Iman Vellani and Wandavision’s Teyonah Parris. The MCU’s cosmic realm has until now largely been the realm of the Guardians of the Galaxy but with a less-serious screenplay than the Captain’s initial solo film endured The Marvels is an absolute blast of entertainment. The Marvels plays to the property’s strengths – notably including the Disney+ breakout character Ms Marvel, proving that Vellani is arguably the best thing about the current MCU bar-none and an outright treasure – and will satisfy most long-time fans as well as drawing in new, impressionable younger ones. Deft humour weaves through a story boasting an improbably overpowered villain and a nonsensical plot device in the Skrull-Kree war, and although at times the film steps dangerously into it’s-too-silly territory, the laughs and action accomplish more for Larson’s embittered Captain than any previous screen appearance to-date.

When Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) aka Captain Marvel suddenly finds herself translocating between the cosmic realm and Earth, with goddaughter Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and young mutant superhero Ms Marvel (Iman Vellani), the trio must come together to thwart the malignant plans of Kree leader Dan-Benn (Zawe Ashton), who seeks to repopulate, replenish and restore her homeworld using unstable galactic jump points. Along for the ride is Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) and Ms Marvel’s Pakistani family, her mother Muneeba (Zenobia Shroff), father Yusuf (Mohan Kapur) and older brother Aamir (Saagar Shaikh), all of whom have their own adventures aboard an orbiting space station known as SABER.
