First launched within the second episode of WandaVision, Wanda’s buddy Geraldine appears to be enjoying an more and more large function going ahead. However simply who’s she, precisely? Though her true id hasn’t been formally revealed on display screen as of but, Marvel has made no secret of who she actually is: she’s Monica Rambeau, the now-adult daughter of Captain Marvel‘s Maria Rambeau.
We first met Monica throughout Captain Marvel, when she was only a younger woman and her mother was Carol Danvers’s finest buddy. Captain Marvel takes place in 1995, so, with Monica now showing to be an grownup (performed by Teyonah Parris), it means that WandaVision does happen someplace within the “current” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Why Monica is there in Wanda’s alternate actuality, and what function she’s enjoying there, nonetheless, stays to be seen. At first, she looks like a buddy to Wanda, however they shortly conflict when Monica, aka “Geraldine,” breaks no matter illusions are occurring on this actuality.
It does look like she has some reminiscences of what life on the “exterior” is like — she briefly breaks by Wanda’s sitcom persona when she asks Wanda concerning the loss of life of her brother, Pietro. On the finish of the third episode, she will get ejected forcefully from Wanda’s actuality, crashing by a drive subject and touchdown on the bottom someplace exterior, surrounded by a bunch of troopers.
If the comics are something to go by, Monica has an enormous future ready for her. In these storylines, she ultimately takes up the mantle of Captain Marvel after gaining superpowers when she’s uncovered to extradimensional power. Not solely does she be a part of the Avengers, however she truly turns into their chief at one level! It is value noting that two of her early superhero allies are Physician Unusual and Scarlet Witch — keep in mind, WandaVision is rumored to hyperlink, ultimately, to the upcoming Physician Unusual sequel, Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity. The model of Monica we’re seeing now seems to have already got some hyperlinks to the broader MCU: Wanda ejects her after noticing her necklace, which bears the image of the post-S.H.I.E.L.D. group, S.W.O.R.D. In any case, we will not wait to see how Monica matches into the Marvel world!
