Meanwhile, during an interview with Collider to promote her latest film Tomb Raider, screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet has been chatting about bringing Carol Danvers to the big screen, how she’ll be portrayed in the movie, and her experience working with Marvel Studios:
“We really were bringing so much of what was already in the comics onto the screen, it felt like, in terms of the amazing character who’s so funny and sassy and talks back, and she’s fearless,” said Robertson-Dworet. “I love that Carol Danvers is so funny. She has a blast when she kicks ass. Those comics are amazing! It’s an amazing world and sandbox to play in. You’re working with incredible creative people, every day. I had a total dream experience. Marvel is a dream experience. It’s a very structured environment. You’re in this amazing collaborative environment, where you go in and meet with the team in person, a lot. Kevin Feige is there, multiple times a week, meeting with you and talking you through his vision of it, within how this story fits into the universe and what you want to do with the character. It was a total blast!”
Captain Marvel is set for release on March 6th 2019 and sees Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) directing a cast that includes Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Dr. Walter Lawson/Mar-Vell, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva and Ben Mendelsohn and Lashana Lynch in as-yet-unrevealed roles.
