Another Autumn, another superhero movie for the disciples of the MCU to feast on – and this time it comes in the form of The Marvels, directed by Nia DaCosta. We loved the film – read our glowing review here.
To mark the film’s release, we had the pleasure of sitting down with the indie filmmaker, who has been given the keys to the kingdom, in what is comfortably the largest movie of her career to date, and she does a good job in capturing the endearing tonality of the franchise, while giving fans much to be entertained by. She talks to us about the film’s modest run-time (the shortest yet in the MCU), while also speaking about the directing the three leads: Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris & Iman Vellani.
She also speaks about the frenetic energy and challenges that derive from shooting the ambitious action sequences, as well as talking about representation within the MCU.
Watch the full interview with Nia DaCosta here:
Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. However, unintended consequences see her 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 two other superheroes to form the Marvels.
The Marvels is out on November 10th
