There are plenty of reasons to be excited about the unexpected trailer drop for Marvel & # 39; s WandaVision during the Sunday night airing of Emmys, but one of the biggest elements of the excitement is actress Teyonah Parris' short cameo. In addition to being a phenomenal actress, Parris brings a very important character to the Disney + series: Monica Rambeau. Yes, this is exactly the Monica we met in 2019 Captain Marvelalthough she is obviously a bit older.
For those who didn't know, Monica is the first woman to wear the Captain Marvel cloak in the comics after Marvel registered the name as a trademark. She is a lieutenant on the New Orleans Port Patrol who gained the ability to convert her body to energy after exposure to extradimensional energies. Out of respect for her predecessor, she eventually gives the name Captain Marvel to Genis-Vell, the son of the original Captain Marvel, and uses several other names, including Photon and most recently Spectrum.
in the Captain MarvelMonica (played by Akira Akbar) appears for the first time in the cinema as the 11-year-old daughter of fighter pilot Maria Rambeau, the best friend of a Carol Danvers.

By doing WandaVision Trailer, Monica's appearance is both brief and a hint of the magical chaos that the series will undoubtedly be full of. We see a figure being thrown through an energy field and when they land they turn out to be Monica in 70s clothing. The red energy that surrounds her resembles the aura that Wanda usually gives off when using her power. So it is very likely that Monica was pushed by the Scarlet Witch herself. The question is, where was she before and why did Wanda feel the need to drive her out?
We won't get these answers until the series premieres in December, but there's a lot of material to speculate! If Parris' role is as big as we hope it can lead her to gain her comic book skills (unless she already has them) and move on in large part in the time to come Captain Marvel Episode. Maybe she'll take on the mantle of Brie Larson's Carol, or grab one of her many other superhero monikers and lead the prosecution for a new Avengers team. There are so many possibilities!
