The Marvels (12a)
In this latest entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Marvels sees a crop of new heroes and old ones, in the ultimate fight. Director Nia DaCosta's (Candyman) new ensemble MCU superhero blockbuster sees Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel team up with Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau for a body-swapping mind-bending adventure, that will bring them together or tear them apart. As a new force has torn a hole in the universe and threatens to bring everything crashing down. Co-starring Samuel L. Jackson and featuring action aplenty, fun and a dimension-warping plot, as well as our favourite alien cat's return in the almighty Goose, The Marvels is the superhero team-up you have been waiting for!
