Also in the trailer (at the 1-minute 37-second spot) is a brief sighting of Korean actor, Park Seo-joon, from Oscar-winning film Parasite and popular TV series, Itaewon Class. He sports long hair and armour in the trailer and looks like he’s ready to go into battle. It hasn’t been revealed what character he’s playing although one theory floating online is that he’s playing Carol Danvers’ husband, Prince Yan.
Park is the third Korean actor to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), joining the likes of Claudia Kim (Avengers: Age Of Ultron) and Ma Dong-seok (Eternals) who came before him.
Other stars in the film include Saagar Shaikh, Zenoiba Shroff and Mohan Kapur as Kamala’s older brother, mother and father, respectively, as well as Zawe Ashton playing a villain.
The Marvels is part of Marvel’s Phase 5 films, which includes Guardians Of The Galaxy (May 5).
