‘Captain Marvel’ Co-Director Reveals Use Of Historic Stage

Captain Marvel Screenwriter MCU Captain Marvel has been shooting for a little while now and the set photos and videos we’ve seen so far have shown scenes that take place on Earth. Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson, is known for her intergalactic heroics just as much as her earthbound ones. So, it’s no surprise that the film is likely going to space. Co-director of the upcoming film, Ryan Fleck, has taken to Instagram to tease the historic stage the film will be shooting on, and it may be the home to Captain Marvel’s space adventures.

Fleck posted the image to Instagram, teasing a reveal:

It’s no wonder Fleck seems so excited. To shoot on a stage that was utilized for a film as iconic as The Wizard of Oz is quite an honor. While we don’t know for certain what’s behind that door, Captain Marvel’s space scenes are likely going to require a soundstage like this to be filmed. Whatever is behind that door, let’s just hope it looks as good as the locations featured in Guardians of the Galaxy. 

What do you think is behind that door? Let us know down in the comments!

The film stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser and Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer. Ben Mendelsohn, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte and McKenna Grace are also on board in undisclosed roles. Here’s the official synopsis:

The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2019. Keep an eye on Heroic Hollywood as more details on this project come out.

5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe

Superheroes Video Game UniverseWorld building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.

Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.
