The Disney Investor's Meeting turned out to be an overwhelming success for Marvel Studios, as Kevin Feige introduced six new confirmed projects and gave confirmed news for over a dozen others. Some of the highlights included four new trailers for the first four shows to premiere on Disney+ in 2021, the reveal that Christian Bale will play Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder, and official plans for the MCU's take on the Fantastic Four with Jon Watts at the helm.
Among this giant batch of news were confirmations for Iman Vellani taking on the role of Kamala Khan in Ms. Marvel along with news that both she and Teyonah Parris' Monica Rambeau are joining the cast of Captain Marvel 2. No plot details for this movie have been revealed yet, but these two additions will pump the scale of the sequel to all-new levels of crazy.
It's clear that everybody involved in making this movie is just as geared up as the fans, as shown by a recent social media post from the leading actress in Captain Marvel 2.
In a new post on her personal Twitter account, MCU star Brie Larson shared a text conversation between herself and newly confirmed Captain Marvel 2 director Nia DaCosta. After Larson asks DaCosta if the world was ready for a movie with herself, Iman Vellani's Kamala Khan, and Teyonah Parris' Monica Rambeau teaming up together, DaCosta confidently replied back "They better get ready."

WHAT THIS MEANS
Even with such a massive amount of news coming from Marvel Studios at the Investor's Meeting, Captain Marvel 2 managed to make its mark and stand out with the news it brought to light. Ms. Marvel is quickly turning into one of the MCU's most intriguing new properties as Iman Vellani makes her Hollywood debut, and Teyonah Parris is going to help bring a whole new dynamic to the adult version of Monica Rambeau when she debuts in WandaVision just a few weeks from now.
There are no details pertaining to how both new actresses will join the Captain Marvel sequel, especially since it's still a mystery as to what year the film will be set in. The original movie took Carol Danvers into 1995 when she stopped the Kree invasion led by Ronan the Accuser, and there are still over 20 years of time to fill in between that movie and her arrival at the beginning of Avengers: Endgame. No matter how the details pan out, this trio should make for one of the most powerful hero combinations in all of Phase 4, as they work together against their next challenge.
Iman Vellani will make her debut as Kamala Khan in 2021's Ms. Marvel while Teyonah Parris will arrive as Monica Rambeau in WandaVision when it begins streaming next month. Captain Marvel 2 will see them team up with Brie Larson's Carol Danvers when it comes to theaters on July 8, 2022.
