The Marvels trailer features a compelling cast of characters, with a focus on Kamala Khan, Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau, and Nick Fury. Fans were also pleasantly surprised by the teaser’s reunion of Kamala with her family from “Ms. Marvel.” The sneak peek also revealed new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), including a major villain, Dar-Benn, played by Zawe Ashton and the acclaimed Korean actor Park Seo-joon.
Prince Yan: A Royal Revelation
Insider and trusted source Daniel Richtman (@DanielRPK) previously revealed Park Seo-joon’s character, revealing that the beloved Korean actor would play a comic book character named Prince Yan. Carol Danvers and Park Seo-joon’s Prince Yan would be depicted as a married couple on the planet Aladana, according to this report.
There had been rumors that “The Marvels” would include a “musical planet” where singing was the primary mode of communication. This musical planet turns out to be none other than Aladana, where Brie Larson is seen singing in the latest trailer. The dance number in the teaser has officially confirmed this intriguing musical element.
A Look Back at the Comics
Yan first appeared in the comic book Captain Marvel (Vol. 8) #9 in November 2014. He bore the title of Prince of Aladna and had been engaged to Terran musician Lila Cheney since childhood. When Lila returned to Aladna as an adult, she and Yan decided against their marriage.
Rather than marrying Lila, the comic depicted Captain Marvel battling a character named Marlo, with Captain Marvel eventually becoming Yan’s wife. This gave Yan the authority to choose his own mate. As a result, Yan ascended to the throne and abolished the custom of only allowing women to choose their marriage partners.
A Potential Narrative for “The Marvels
In “The Marvels,” Carol and Prince Yan appear to be considering marriage for similar reasons. Dar-Benn, played by Zawe Ashton, could be the character posing challenges instead of Marlo. It remains to be seen whether Dar-Benn seeks marriage with Prince Yan or if her motivations are revealed later in the story.
“The Marvels” is set to be released in theaters on November 10, 2023. The film is poised to be another exciting addition to the MCU, with its intriguing mix of new and familiar characters, unexpected musical elements, and hints of complex relationships.
