"They continue to reinvent..."

Avengers Endgame Captain Marvel 2 Brie Larson Nia DaCosta The Marvels MCU

Brie Larson recently shared her reaction to reading The Marvels script and working with director Nia DaCosta.

The Marvels will mark the subsequent appearance of Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers in the MCU, who was last seen in Shang-Chi‘s mid-credits scene. The upcoming film will also unite Danvers with Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan following her debut in the solo Disney Plus series.

In a recent interview with Uproxx, Brie Larson talked a little bit more about The Marvels by hyping up Megan McDonnell’s script and director Nia DaCosta:

“I feel it’s like, I wish I could talk about it. I can talk about my feelings around it. I can say that… I can’t say enough about how incredible our director, Nia DaCosta, is and what an honor it was to work with her, what an immense talent she is, how much I just feel like she’s the future. And I could also say that, when I read the script for the first time, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. I was like, this is bonkers. And it’s the thing that I love about Marvel, is that they continue to reinvent. They continue to do the thing that you just would never think would be possible in these films. And they’re not afraid to go there. So I’m super excited about what we did. I think there are some huge personal achievements of mine that I’m really excited about sharing, but you know, it’s fun to have a bit of a secret. And it’s fun to know that, when this film comes out, people are going to be delighted. And I get to keep that to myself for a little bit longer.”

Here is the synopsis for the first film:

Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
