‘Captain Marvel’: Brie Larson On Why She Loves Working With Marvel

Brie Larson Captain Marvel Brie Larson has only been a part of Team Marvel for a short time, but so far she is loving the experience working with the team on Captain Marvel.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Larson talked about how impressed she is that Marvel still has a unique feel within the confines of a huge organization:

“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.”

Check out the video clip of the interview below:

While Captain Marvel is still two years away from being released, which will be eleven years into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it is good to hear that Marvel is still putting care into crafting the important narrative details of each individual films. The collaborative atmosphere can only help to create better films, and it is a great example of why Marvel continues to be so successful.

Captain Marvel will take place in the 1990s and that the film will feature the Skrulls, a race of shape-shifting aliens which are fairly well-known in the Marvel comic book world.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel will star Brie Larson as the titular character, while Samuel L. Jackson is also set to reprise his role as Nick Fury.

Captain Marvel is set to hit theatres on March 8, 2019.

10 The Defenders/Marvel Cinematic Universe Crossovers We Want To See

Previous1 of 11

Netflix The Defenders The Avengers Marvel Cinematic UniverseAfter three long years, the Marvel Netflix universe is finally coming together for the epic crossover event series The Defenders, where Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist will team up to fight to save New York from a massive army of deadly ninjas known as The Hand. However, that is not the only crossover that Marvel and Defenders fans are longing for. Ever since these shows were announced, fans have been wondering when we might be able to see these characters appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe proper or when we might see a movie character appear on one of the shows.

Currently, though, there seems to be a divide between Marvel Television and Marvel Studios. They always like to say “it’s all connected,” but the most we get in the Netflix world is the occasional reference to “magic hammers” or “the green guy” or “the incident.” Marvel’s ABC shows have been given a bit more love, with characters like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Colbie Smulders’ Maria Hill or Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif showing up from time to time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but we still haven’t seen much crossover in the way of actual Avengers appearing on the show or characters like Daisy Johnson/Quake (Chloe Bennet) appearing in a Marvel film.

Who knows if we’ll ever actually see these two worlds clash in a way that is satisfying to both fans of the films and fans of the shows, but it sure is a heck of a lot of fun to dream. With these worlds so populated by superheroes, the possibilities are endless, but there are quite a few crossovers that we already know we would love to see.

Before we begin with this list, I would like to note that this article may feature spoilers for some of the Marvel Netflix series up until this point, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. However, I have not seen any episodes of The Defenders yet, so there will be no intentional spoilers for that show.

So, without further adieu, here are the ten crossovers between Netflix’s The Defenders and the Marvel Cinematic Universe films that we want to see. Hit the next button below to begin!
