With the impending release of The Marvels, Marvel fans worldwide eagerly speculate about the mysterious villain challenging our beloved heroes. Expanding on Captain Marvel and WandaVision, this MCU instalment guarantees an action-packed adventure brimming with surprises.

In this article, we explore theories and possibilities, aiming to answer the burning question: Who is the villain in The Marvels? Join us on a thrilling multiverse journey to uncover the secrets ahead.

Who is the villain in The Marvels?

Although the trailers so far have not revealed the character's name, Marvel Studios has officially confirmed that Zawe Ashton portrays the role of Dar-Benn in The Marvels. Dar-Benn is believed to be the main antagonist in this instalment of the MCU.

In the comic lore, General Dar-Benn, alongside Ael-Dan and a faction of Kree soldiers, grew weary of the governance of Clumsy Foulup. Their discontent led them to conspire against him, orchestrating an assassination plot with the aid of a robotic Silver Surfer. By implicating the Skrulls in Clumsy's demise, they aimed to seize power for themselves. Notably, intriguing accessories worn by Dar-Benn in the trailer have sparked speculation about their potential significance in shaping the events of The Marvels.

Dar-Benn possesses the following:

Kree Cosmi-rod - a weapon last seen in the hands of Ronan the Accuser in Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel. The fact that Ashton’s villain possesses one suggests they are also a member of the Accusers.

Kree bangle - Dar-Benn is seen wearing the twin of Ms Marvel’s powerful Kree bangle in the trailer.
