The Ronin has been able to confirm that the Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels will be shooting mainly at Longcross Studios in Surrey, England. The stages have been previously used for other Marvel Studios projects such as Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of The Galaxy, Doctor Strange, and most recently for Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen.
Candyman’s Nia DaCosta is directing The Marvels as she reunites with production designer Cara Bower (Candyman, Us) and will have the extremely talented cinematographer Sean Bobbitt (Widows, Judas & The Black Messiah, Shame) behind the camera.
The cast officially consists of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, and Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan. The only new addition to the cast so far is Zawe Ashton, who is said to be playing a villain. We are assuming that there will be crossover with the casts of The Marvels and their Skrull event series Secret Invasion given the two projects will be shooting around the same time in the United Kingdom.
It’s new title could suggest they might be aiming to add more heroes to the lineup such as Blue Marvel, but that remains to be seen. However, it’s a little odd that the studio has seemingly pivoted from a solo film franchise to what now looks like a team project bumping Larson’s Captain Marvel from the title.
There has been confirmation previously that Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania would be shooting at Pinewood Studios UK, where things like Black Widow, and Eternals have shot in the last couple of years. Other projects heading to the United Kingdom in the next year or so include Moon Knight, Secret Invasion, and James Gunn’s Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.3. There is also a chance that Season 2 of Loki could be moving from Atlanta to England.
The Marvels will hit theaters on November 11, 2022.
