Yesterday, Brie Larson did an interview with SiriusXM Stars (captured by and shared online by fans as the full interview was on their app), where she talked about the routine of shooting The Marvels directed by Nia Dacosta (Candyman) and compared the massive sets on the production to her own private Disneyland.
Confirming that production is indeed underway in the United Kingdom.
Director Nia DaCosta recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the Captain Marvel sequel and how Marvel Studios is giving her more freedom than she’s had on her last two projects.
“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. 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.”
The Marvels (working title Goat Rodeo) as we’ve previously confirmed will mainly shoot at Longcross Studios in Surrey, England with a production team that has cinematographer Sean Bobbitt (Widows, Judas & The Black Messiah) and production designer Cara Brower (Candyman).
Local South Korean outlets reported on Parasite actor Park Seo-Joon joining the film, but have yet to be supported by Hollywood trades or Marvel/Disney.
There is a proximity to the Skrull event series Secret Invasion (shooting in England and Scotland), which is also shooting close to Longcross and likely means the cast members on both shoots could crossover. It’s also assumed that Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel series will also plant seeds for The Marvels too.
Larson also teased alien worlds and off-world settings, which is nice to hear considering that the best parts of Captain Marvel took place on other planets than Earth.
Zawe Ashton was previously announced as playing a villain, but we’re still waiting on confirmation of that that role will be.
Disney has given the sequel a release date of November 11, 2022.
