One of many excessive factors of WandaVision is the collection offers a much bigger function to what had been merely supporting characters within the MCU till now. Everybody from Wanda Maximoff to her android boyfriend Imaginative and prescient, to Jimmy Woo and Darcy Lewis, get to point out followers what they’ve been as much as within the background of the entire “Infinity War” saga.
The character of Monica Rambeau, performed by Teyonah Parris, is one such one who first confirmed up as a tween in Captain Marvel, and is now a fully-grown undercover agent working for SWORD in WandaVision. Followers have seen that Monica, who idolized Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel as a baby, appears to have a strained relationship with the superheroine now. In an interview with ET Canada, Parris hinted on the supply of the strain.
“Well, as you know, I was announced to be joining the cast of Captain Marvel 2 with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and the Kamala Khan character. I do believe that we’re going to get more into that relationship, and what’s going on with those two… Not only did [Monica’s mother] pass, but Monica wasn’t there to help her mother transition. And that’s a very hard pill to swallow. The guilt and the shame and whatever other grief she might be trying to sort through, while returning to work on a project she doesn’t even typically do – there are parallels between Monica’s grief and trauma and tragedy, as well as what Wanda is experiencing. Monica connects with Wanda on that level.”
In WandaVision, we be taught that Monica Rambeau was one of many characters who was blipped out of existence after Thanos’ snap. When she returned 5 years later, she discovered her mom Maria had succumbed to most cancers for the time being interval. It appears Monica may blame Captain Marvel for not serving to her mom in her battle in opposition to the lethal illness, and in some methods holds Carol liable for Maria’s demise.
This could clarify why Monica has not even tried to get Captain Marvel’s assist in coping with Wanda, although it’s turning into more and more clear that the latter is an immensely highly effective risk who can solely be stopped by somebody like Carol. Parris goes on to state that the connection between Monica and Captain Marvel must be resolved in Captain Marvel 2, whereas WandaVision will proceed to take care of the fallout of the warping of actuality within the city of Westview.
“We do have a lot of real estate and time to play with the relationships between Carol and Monica [in Captain Marvel 2]… There’s still a lot more story to be told [in the show’s final three episodes].”
