The first reactions to the latest MCU effort are now in, with critics taking to social media to share their response to The Marvels. Amid the meek box office projections for The Marvels, and with reported chaos behind-the-scenes at Marvel Studios, how does the latest offering from the world of Marvel fare? Pretty well based on the first reactions, with critics calling The Marvels “an absolute BLAST” and “a great time at the movies!”

But what of those rumored cameos and connections to the wider MCU? Well, it sounds like too will be worth the wait.

When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as ‘The Marvels.’”
