It looks like Brie Larson is having a blast working with Marvel Studios on the upcoming Captain Marvel film. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress expresses relief over Marvel’s personal and creative atmosphere:
“That’s one of the things that I’m so impressed with at Marvel – is that although they are this big company, at the same time their stories are really character driven and they care a lot about the journey of these characters and they understand that these films are a metaphor for the things that are very real in our lives. There’s been a lot of talk about it, they’re really open to the things I have to say about it, and it’s super collaborative. It feels like any other job at this point, which is really wonderful.”
Whenever actors discuss these big-budget-tentpole-studio-films, the most common response is that the process can feel really impersonal. Marvel Studios’ bread and butter has always been creating a family-like atmosphere for directors, and actors. The studio always seems to have the long-game in mind, and an important part of that is creative talent that will keep coming back. More importantly: that will WANT to keep coming back.
Captain Marvel will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and sees Larson’s Carol Danvers battling the Skrulls in the 1990s. It is set for release on March 8th, 2019.
