Teyonah Parris Will Return as Monica Rambeau for the ‘Captain Marvel’ Sequel. Filming for various Phase 4 MCU projects is well underway, and Marvel Fans are eager to hear new details and see the new shows and movies. Recently, WandaVision star Teyonah Parris spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about her audition with Marvel and her excitement for the upcoming film, The Marvels.
In regards to her role, Teyonah shared she knew she was auditioning for a character that would be featured in the MCU, but had no idea she would be playing Monica Rambeau. “From the jump, they were very clear that the projects they’re bringing to Disney+ would be seamlessly integrated into the feature world,” Parris elaborated. “Now, they did not say that my character would necessarily be going along with it. But I knew it wasn’t a stand-alone project.“
Teyonah continued, “I knew it was Marvel, but that’s about it. I didn’t know the context, just the sides for what I now know was the scene between Monica, as Geraldine, and Wanda [Elizabeth Olsen], when Wanda’s water breaks and that stork was walking around, and the scene where Monica wakes up from the blip. Imagine being given those two scenes and told it’s the same character! I had no clue. So, I had to play broad sitcom and drama.“
A synopsis for The Marvels reads: “Marvel Studios’ The Marvels will feature Brie Larson returning to the role of Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers. In the film, she’ll be joined by Teyonah Parris, who was first introduced as adult Monica Rambeau in Marvel Studios’ WandaVision, along with Iman Vellani, who will appear as Ms. Marvel in the upcoming Disney+ series of the same name. Prepare to experience it and fly higher, further, and faster with the film, directed by Nia DaCosta!”
The Marvels is currently filming at Pinewood Studios in London. The movie is also set to film in both Los Angeles, CA, and New Jersey. The film will star Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Teyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau), Iman Vellani (Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel), and Zawe Ashton (unspecified).
