Captain Marvel 2 director explains her MCU Experience

It is a very interesting fact that the directors from the first movie are not going to return for the new project. The new project has been helmed by Nia DaCosta. This implies that there’s going to be a transition in the theme and tonality of the sequel. As per her, this new Marvel movie is full-on comic book madness. But it is not the first time, she has shared her experience of working with the MCU.

Earlier also, Nia DaCosta explained how she loved to work in this new universe and how this is far better than her past ventures:

“It’s a lot less traumatizing to work on for sure…[laughs]… But this movie also deals with specific, personal, sometimes sad things. But no, it’s been nice to work in a different world for sure.”

Even though it is not clear exactly what trauma she’s referring to but many fans are expecting to be her experience during the 2021 horror reboot of Candyman

Nia DaCosta also described that the superhero studio gave her full freedom to work on the story the way she wants:

“It’s amazing… [It’s] more [freedom] than I’ve had on anything. It’s great because we’re all just comic-book nerds who want to make a great comic-book movie.”

Now, this is a big statement by the director as the studio’s intervention in the works of the directors is something very common in the Hollywood industry. Even one of the main reasons cited for the last two disappointing MCU movies was reportedly due to the studio running their knives over it.
