GENIS-VELL IN CAPTAIN MARVEL?
Another toy may have recently revealed that Genis-Vell will assume a role in the upcoming Captain Marvel film.
The accompanying picture of a Marvel Legends toy figure was posted by CollectAndChill on Twitter. It also shows up on the official Shop Disney site.
“Born of a Titanian Eternal,” the description reads, “Genis-Vell possesses indomitable strength and uses powerful Nega-Bands to channel incredible energy blasts. Recreate Genis-Vell’s Captain Marvel scenes with this 6” action figure from the Marvel Legends Series.”
HOW COULD HE MAKE HIS PRESENCE?
It’s indistinct right now who may play Genis-Vell in the film. And there’s a reasonable shot that he probably won’t show up in the film. The description for the toy takes note that it’s designed according to the adaptation from the comics. However, it pairs together with various Marvel Legends figures from the film to shape a Kree Sentry.
There’s also the matter of the phrasing of “recreate Genis-Vell’s Captain Marvel scenes,” which suggests that it originates from the film. However, it may very well be an especially odd approach to make reference to the comics.
This toy is additionally fascinating in light of the forthcoming Eternals film, which will feature Starfox. This may imply that Captain Marvel has a deeper association with that film than recently thought. However, this addition may integrate with the mystery encompassing Jude Law’s character, who many have speculated to play either Mar-Vell or Yon-Rogg.
Made by Ron Marz and Joe Phillips, Genis-Vell first showed up in 1993’s Silver Surfer Annual #6. The character is the child of the first Captain Marvel, however he was raised to think he was the child of Thanos’ sibling Starfox. He proceeded to take up the mantle of Captain Marvel himself.
