Teyonah Parris' MCU character is set to be pushed to the forefront in Captain Marvel 2 after an impressive debut in WandaVision. Ahead of her appearance, one of the main topics of discussion is her costume and superhero name. 

It was previously hinted that Monica's superhero name would end up being Spectrum, potentially indicating that she will have the same costume as her comic counterpart.

How Monica Rambeau Fits in Captain Marvel 2

Teyonah Parris' Monica Rambeau's costume is a mix of Photon and Spectrum's look from the comics, adding confusion on which superhero name she will take in the sequel. 

Moreover, the costume's sleek appearance allows Monica to be more active during action scenes while utilizing her light manipulation powers to their fullest.

Monica Rambeau is expected to have a significant role in The Marvels, considering that Nick Fury hand-picked her to be in space during WandaVision's post-credits scene.

Rambeau's issues with Brie Larson's Carol Danvers will come to light while she also takes a potential mentorship role to Iman Vellani's Kamala Khan. 

The Marvels director Nia DaCosta revealed that Parris is active in giving her feedback to the sequel's story, indicating that a good chunk of it relies on improving Monica's character arc. 

All in all, fans can expect to see Monica go through a thrilling journey in the MCU sequel.

The Marvels is set to premiere on November 10.
