The Marvels dropped in theatres on Nov. 10, after a long spate of postponement, that began in July 2022 and finally resolved in 2023. The film is now all set for its OTT premiere.
The Marvels was released in international theatres on November 10, 2023. The film got mixed responses from viewers, with many pointing out multiple issues with plot, VFX, as well as sincerity of the plot conflict.
However, the film’s basic premise combining three iconic characters who either absorb (Carol Danvers), see (Monica Rambeau), or uses light as a physically tangible source (Kamala Khan) is well-thought of.
When and where to see The Marvels on OTT?
The film made its OTT debut on Prime Video, Apple TV, and Vudu, on January 16, 2024, instead of Marvel’s home Disney+.The Marvels has been available for rent since January 16, 2024. The film will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on February 13, right in time for Valentine’s Day as well.
Since previous MCU releases like Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 dropped at Disney+ after their DVD and Blu-ray release, the same was expected of The Marvels, that it will hopefully arrive at Disney+ before March begins. Thankfully, The Marvels will also drop on Disney+ on February 7, 2024.
The cast and story of The Marvels
The film stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury, and Zawe Ashton as the new MCU villain Dar-Benn, among others.
The Marvels is based on the consequences of the vengeance Carol Danvers wreaked on the Kree Supreme Intelligence, for stealing her identity and memories to make her its trained, loyal soldier.
However, that act of hers had incurred the scorn of Dar-Benn, a former Kree ally of Caol Danvers, who uses an ancient bangle identical to the one Kamala Khan has, in order to attack other planets to save her own.
The light manipulating powers of all three women, Carol, Kamala, and Maria get connected to one another, after Captain Marvel’s journey through an anomalous wormhole controlled by Dar-Benn, creating chaos on a cosmic level.
