Brie Larson has established herself as Carol Danvers and Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since she first appeared as her iconic character in the franchise. Even with the backlash her first movie may have gotten, her character is much loved by many people. Her latest movie, The Marvels has a lot of expectations because of the dry patch that the MCU has been going through.
Not only that, but Captain Marvel had done a lot of things wrong in order to get various other things right. This ended up with the movie developing a love-hate relationship with the audience. To make up for that and improve on it, The Marvels has a lot of fans waiting. The director of the film, Nia DaCosta was surprisingly skeptical about working with Kevin Feige before.
Brie Larson’s The Marvel’s Director Was Terrified of Kevin Feige
When Nia DaCosta first signed onto The Marvels, she was filled with fear because she realized that the movie wasn’t just hers alone. As a director, she did not have as much creative freedom as she would have liked. The movie had Kevin Feige’s guidance every step of the way. DaCosta revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair that the movie was made according to the direction Feige wanted the MCU to go in.
“Are they going to kill me and destroy my soul? Is Kevin Feige a bad man?”
She said that it felt as if he was the primary director of Brie Larson‘s movie and she was only there to sit and watch. This made her fear him a little as though he was in the way of her creative freedom. This even made her develop an impression of him, thinking that he would not be as good of a person and might even be a bad man altogether.
James Gunn and Taika Waititi Had Different Opinions of Kevin Feige
Nia DaCosta is the youngest director the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever hired and her fear soon settled after she got words of reassurance from some of the biggest directors in the world. From James Gunn to Taika Waititi, they all had nothing but praise for him. While speaking with Vanity Fair, she revealed that they helped her remove any prejudice.
“And they were like, ‘No, he’s just a good guy who was a nerd.’”
Although her faith in the filmmaker grew, her stress grew along with it. She was completely overwhelmed by the use of CGI and just how confusing things got for her from time to time. However, she made it through with a breeze and fans are now eagerly waiting for the movie.
The Marvels will be available to watch in theatres from 10th November 2023.
