Nia DaCosta’s MCU Sequel The Marvels Begins Production

In a recent interview on SiriusXM, Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson has opened up about Marvel Studios’ The Marvels, confirming that production on the Nia DaCosta-directed MCU sequel has officially begun. Larson also went on to tease the massive scale of the film’s sets, which might mean that the story would probably continue to take place outside of Earth.

“They’re unlike anything else. Huge sets. Huge amounts of people on set. Lots of specialists,” Larson said (via Comic Book). “It’s a really unique experience. I’m a huge fan of Disneyland, so to me it feels like I get to go to my own private Disneyland every single day. Because they’re building all of these insane worlds that no one else knows about, no one else gets to see. You’ll see it when the movie comes out but for now, it’s just mine. I’m in sets that are bigger than you can imagine right now. It’s really special.”

In addition to the highly-anticipated Captain Marvel sequel, there are also four other MCU projects currently in production including Disney+’s She-Hulk and Moon Knight shows as well as sequels Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

The Marvels will see the return of Oscar winner Brie Larson as she reprises her role as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, who fans have last seen during Avengers: Endgame. The sequel will be helm by Nia DaCosta (Candyman), from a screenplay by Megan McDonnell.

Joining Larson in the sequel are WandaVision breakout star Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau and MCU newcomer Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, in her own upcoming Disney+ series, which is currently in post-production. English actress Zawe Ashton (Velvet Buzzsaw) has also been cast for the role of the film’s antagonist. It has also been rumored that Jude Law might be reprising his role as Yon-Rogg. Popular South Korean actor Park Seo-Joon has also reportedly been cast for an undisclosed character.

Captain Marvel made its debut in 2019 where it went on to earn a worldwide gross of over $1.1 billion, making it the fifth-highest grossing film of that year. It also starred Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, who are both set to star in their own Disney+ series Secret Invasion.

The Marvels is currently set for a November 11, 2022, release.
