Not only did MPower premiere in time for March 8's International Women's Day but also ahead of Captain Marvel's return to the big screen in The Marvels.
Disney+'s New Captain Marvel Documentary
One of the short documentaries in MPower's 4-episode series centers on Captain Marvel and revisits her story, as well as her impact, through new footage, animation, and commentary from Marvel Studios stars.
One of those stars is Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers' Captain Marvel.
She's also joined by actress Annette Bening, who played Mar-Vell in the 2019 film.
MPower's Captain Marvel episode press release reads as follows:
"MPOWER—CAPTAIN MARVEL journeys with one of the MCU’s most powerful Super Heroes, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson)—seen through the eyes of those who helped bring her to life. Through animation and never-before-seen footage, viewers will gain a new sense of the transformation from Carol Danvers to Captain Marvel, the women who look up to her—Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani)—and how the teams behind and in front of the camera helped bring it all together."
How MPower Previews The Marvels
MPower's Disney+ debut comes at the perfect time and not only because of International Women's Day.
However, Captain Marvel's documentary just may be the most relevant to this point in the MCU.
In addition to revisiting Carol Danvers's significance ahead of her 2023 sequel, the episode is also connecting the character to her upcoming female co-stars before Marvel Studios has even released a trailer.
Fans should expect to hear more about this female superhero trio in the weeks and months to come.
All four episodes of MPower are available to stream now on Disney+; The Marvels arrives in theaters on November 10.
