A big cameo was reportedly cut from the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel The Marvels, according to an industry insider.

What sort of cameo was cut from The Marvels?

Insider @MyTimeToShine revealed that the cameo was originally going to feature a “well-known name,” with George Clooney and Clive Owen apparently being considered. They would have played a “big Marvel hero from the comics” who would have appeared to be set up for a substantial role in the movie, but would instead die at the end of the first act. This idea later ended up being scrapped.

The Marvels will see the return of Oscar winner Brie Larson as she reprises her role as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, who fans last saw in a major role in Avengers: Endgame. Joining Larson in the sequel are WandaVision breakout star Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau and Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel. It’s set to hit theaters on November 10, 2023.

The sequel is directed by Nia DaCosta (Candyman) from a screenplay by Megan McDonnell. Additional cast also includes MCU vet Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and popular South Korean actor Park Seo-Joon.

“Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence,” reads the synopsis. “But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as The Marvels.”

Captain Marvel made its debut in 2019, where it went on to earn a worldwide gross of over $1.1 billion, making it the fifth highest-grossing film of that year. It also starred Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, who recently starred in their own Disney+ series, Secret Invasion.
