CHICAGO – Some Marvel movies are essential viewing for those following the ongoing advancements in the Marvel Cinema Universe (MCU). “The Marvels” is eminently skippable, and draws from so many different MCU properties it almost feels like you’d have to cram for a comic book final exam to understand half of what is going on. Oscarman rating: 2.0/5.0
Rating: 2.0/5.0

Ostensibly a sequel to the mid-tier and instantly forgettable “Captain Marvel,” the film pairs up Carol “Captain Marvel” Danvers (Brie Larson) with her estranged niece Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris from “WandaVision”) and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani from the “Ms Marvel”). They each have specific light based powers that become tangled when a “Kree” space baddie from Planet Hala punches holes in the fabric of space/time, creating worm holes. So they instantly switch places when they use their powers at the same time.

”The Marvels” is in theaters November 10th. Featuring Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, Iman Vellani, Zawe Ashton and Samuel L. Jackson. Written by Nia DaCosta, Megan McDonnell and Elissa Karasik. Directed by Nia DaCosta. Rated “PG-13”
