Teyonah Parris has been confirmed to return to the role of Monica Rambeau in Captain Marvel 2 alongside Brie Larson’s titular character, and Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel. The character is poised to take up a superhero mantle in the upcoming sequel, likely under the alias of either Spectrum or Photon.
In an interview posted on the official Marvel site, Monica Rambeau actress Teyonah Parris discussed her character’s relationship with Wanda in the series. The actress explained the two connect on “a basic level of just grief” as they both grieve the loss of loved ones in Vision and Maria Rambeau respectively
“Monica has connected with Wanda on a basic level of just grief. They’re both grieving a loved one; Monica grieving her mother’s passing and even not being there for the passing. Then she’s watching Wanda go through this trauma of losing her love, the love of her life, and connecting with her on that level. [She has] the empathy and compassion that [Wanda needs].”
