The Marvels has already shattered several gloomy box office records. Well, Brie Larson’s latest movie collection is experiencing sharp declines every day. Under the direction of Nia DaCosta, the movie has generated a variety of reactions and has been discussed online. It has now been made public that several scenes from the film were also omitted. And you can imagine our disappointment when we let you know that one of these scenes is taken straight out of Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel.
Recently, the fan-turned-Marvel phenom acknowledged that the Marvel Cinematic Universe removed her significant scene with Larson. Fans have been anticipating her big screen appearance since her introduction to the MCU in Bisha K. Ali’s miniseries Ms. Marvel.
Iman Vellani On Her The Marvels Deleted Scenes
The revelation that one of the pivotal scenes involving Iman Vellani ‘s Ms. Marvel and Brie Larson‘s Captain Marvel has been omitted from The Marvels is at the heart of the disappointment. The Canadian actress, 21, admitted in her interview with New Rockstars:
“It was we shot it for like a hot minute and it was we still shot it like at our back lot so we didn’t do any on-location work except that grassy planet where Carol and Monica like have and they all have that talk like ‘oh I am so sorry, oh it’s my fault.’ that was the only actual onsite thing that we did so…”
Carol began singing before dancing with the prince at one point, according to Vellani, which was quite amusing. The actress explained how she could not stop “staring” at the people who came with so much energy:
“I know you thought otherwise but the way it’s framed can be misleading but it was real, like somewhere in the Farmland of London… We were still like at the studio, but just on the other hand, all these extras were amazing dancers; they had all this makeup… I couldn’t stop staring at people and just came with all this energy.”
The Pakistan-born actress further elaborated on the moment when Carol began singing, stating that Vellani, too, is a “musical theater nerd”:
“There’s a moment I think Carol starts singing, there’s a bit where Kamala is singing..I was having so much fun; I’m such a musical theater nerd.. Honestly, I didn’t realize how crazy it was until people online started saying, ‘This is just like a weird movie’ and I was like, ‘Yeah, but in the best way possible’.”
This revelation sparked a debate in which fans shared their thoughts on such a delightful scene. They thought it was one of the best parts of the whole film and that it ought to have been shown.

By removing this scene, the MCU missed out on a rare opportunity to highlight the increasing diversity within the superhero genre, which could have been a delight for the audience. The comments under the video reflected their disappointment.
As one noted,
“No doubt one of the bests scenes of the Marvels is when they’re figuring out how the entanglement works before they get into a fight.”
Another pointed out:
“I just got back from The Marvels and it was SOOOOO GOOD!!! Iman was absolutely the best part, and this precious cinnamon bun must be protected!”
One fan shared:
“I hoped this would happen! Boom looking for this!! Indeed. Amazing. It was a treat listening to this.”
“Honestly, I went into The Marvels with low expectations. But it was so fun! It brought me back to why I like Marvel movies. Not bc they’re perfect or super accurate but bc they’re enjoyable.”
Despite the scene’s deletion, one appreciated it, saying:
“Look how much being a good person can go. The Marvels wasn’t good but Iman is amazing in the eyes of the audience.”
The Marvels, the follow-up to Captain Marvel, will see the return of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the debut of Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.
