Teyonah Parris crashes into the MCU!
Although the focus might have been on Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in the WandaVision trailer, we also got our first look at Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.
The last time fans saw Monica Rambeau was as a child in the 1990s during Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, but she seems to have a mysterious role in WandaVision. It was confirmed back in July last year that Monica Rambeau will appear in the series, but the recent trailer revealed Teyonah Parris in the role. Fans were also treated to shots of Paul Bettany’s Vision in a comic-accurate outfit as well as Kathryn Hahn’s intriguing new character.
But the WandaVision trailer also showed off a brief shot of Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau being hurled out of the idyllic suburban town into the darkness, surrounded by agents with guns, presumably from the S.W.O.R.D. agency. Comic readers will already know that in the comics Monica Rambeau became became her own version of Captain Marvel before taking on a whole host of other codenames, like Photon, Pulsar and Spectrum. Although we didn’t get a glimpse of Teyonah Parris in costume, the force that throws her to the ground could imply that she already has powers, since it seemed like a rough landing. Take a look at Monica Rambeau in WandaVision below.

Here is the official synopsis for WandaVision:
Marvel Studios’ “WandaVision” blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
Directed by Matt Shakman with Jac Schaeffer as head writer, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, and Kathryn Hahn in an undisclosed role. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said that the series will lead into the feature film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
WandaVision is set to premiere on Disney Plus in 2020. Stay tuned for all the latest news on WandaVision and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
