Kevin Feige On Why He Chose CAPTAIN MARVEL Directors
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is doing its rounds. Actor’s and filmmakers from the studio are currently on a promotional tour for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. One of those promoting the film is Marvel studio’s chief Kevin Feige.
24 hours after it was announced that Brie Larson’s upcoming Captain Marvel movie, due out in theaters on March 8, 2019 had its directors (Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden) Fandango had a chat with Feige. He discussed the reasons behind choosing the Half Nelson and Mississippi Grind director’s.
“We met with lots and lots of people as we always do, and had multiple meetings, and Anna and Ryan just had an amazing way of talking about Carol Danvers and talking about her journey,” Feige said. “We want filmmakers that can help us focus on and elevate the character journey so it doesn’t get lost amongst the spectacle. And there’s going to be a lot of spectacle in the Captain Marvel film.”
“We’re pretty good at that at Marvel Studios, and have an amazing team that can help with that. But when we’re filling a director chair or chairs, we want people who are focused on the emotional journey, the humor, the surprising twists and turns of a singular character journey, which is what Captain Marvel is. They had the best handle on it. And when you look at the work that Ryan and Anna have done in the past, they are all amazing and very diverse character studies and journeys, and that impressed us.”
Sounds good to me.
