WandaVision producer Mary Livanos explains how the post-credits scene in WandaVision perfectly sets up the events in the upcoming sequel, Captain Marvel 2.
Marvel Studios welcomed a powerful new superhero in WandaVision with the introduction of Monica Rambeau, a little girl who first debuted in Captain Marvel (2019), but is now handed strong capabilities with the sequel scheduled for release next year.
We’ve been aware for a while that Teyonah Parris will feature in Captain Marvel 2 (2022), and after what transpired in WandaVision, she will now boast formidable light-based powers thanks to her journeys in and out of Wanda’s Hex that changed her molecular structure. This incident set the future of Monica as a dominant big hitter in the entire MCU.
In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, WandaVision producer Mary Livanos discussed the high-octane finale. She teased what’s in store for the Captain Marvel sequel and how Monica Rambeau‘s encounter with a Skrull perfectly sets up what we can expect going forward in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It’s not Monica’s first interaction with a Skrull. Just [Parrris’s]. It was so cool to see Teyonah interact with her Skrull counterpart, just knowing the crazy Captain Marvel universe that’s in store. There’s just so much more zany that it’s going to get, it’s fun to think about.
Fans might recollect Monica’s annoyance as she responded to FBI agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park), “We aren’t talking about her,” during a reference to Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). Parris assured the Associated Press that the topic will be addressed in the future.
The actress said,
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.
Keeping in mind the blip aka Thanos’ snap and those who lost half a decade of their lives, it feels like Parris’ Monica isn’t willing to forget the past and reconcile just yet.
Parris told TV Line,
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.
Captain Marvel 2 is slated to hit theatres on 11th November 2022.
