The hype for The Marvels keeps getting higher, further, faster! Fandango has officially named the Captain Marvel sequel the most anticipated Fall release by moviegoers.
Despite actors being unable to promote their work due to the ongoing strike, Fall is certainly a packed season for films between A Haunting In Venice, Five Nights at Freddys, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, and, of course, The Marvels. Fandango recently took a poll about how excited moviegoers are for the upcoming films, with the results placing the Captain Marvel sequel as the most anticipated film of the fall:
The first Captain Marvel film managed to gross $1 billion at the box office despite coming out just a month before Avengers: Endgame. With Carol Danvers now being joined by fan-favorites Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan, and the theater industry as a whole starting to rebound from the pandemic, it’s possible The Marvels returns with another billion-dollar gross.
The talent behind The Marvels
The Marvels is set to be a groundbreaking film in many ways. Not only does it feature three powerful female superheroes, but it also has a female director, Nia DaCosta, who previously directed the horror flick Candyman. The movie features a cast that includes Zawe Ashton, Park Seo-joon, Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur.
“She has a really calm vibe, too,” Iman Vellani said about DaCosta. “These movies are not easy to make at all. There’s like a million, bajillion little moving pieces. She and [executive producer] Mary [Livanos] did such a great job to keep morale high. Even if there were days where they wanted to rip people’s heads off, they would never show it and never put their stress on anyone else.”
In addition to directing The Marvels, Nia DaCosta also co-wrote the script alongside Megan McDonnell, Elissa Karasik, and Zeb Wells. During an interview, DaCosta described the movie as being “full comic book madness,” teasing what audiences can expect from the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe project.
