AMC Exclusive: CAPTAIN MARVEL Set Visit

January 8th, 2019AMC Exclusive: CAPTAIN MARVEL Set Visit

It’s the first week of June and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is continuing to break box office records. Meanwhile, AMC was invited to the set of the twenty-first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first to follow the epic (and tragic) events of INFINITY WAR, CAPTAIN MARVEL. There’s a lot of speculation on set on how much this film will answer our questions from INFINITY WAR. Following Thanos’ snap which wiped out half the universe of existence, Nick Fury paged Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers before dusting away. With Fury’s page and the fact that Kevin Feige has gone on record saying Carol Danvers is the most powerful hero in the MCU, it is suggested that Danvers will undo or at least help restore Thanos’ actions.

We were immediately told that CAPTAIN MARVEL will not answer those questions, as the film takes place before the Avengers were even assembled and focuses on Danvers’ origin story in the ‘90s. One can at least hope that the end credits scene will lead into AVENGERS: ENDGAME (which was not confirmed on the set visit).

Some fans might be disappointed, but it’s actually a good thing the film is being treated as a standalone. Captain Marvel, after all, will be leading the forefront of the Marvel Cinematic Universe beyond AVENGERS: ENDGAME, so learning her origin is an important first introduction to the character.

From our two-day set visit, we saw and learned a lot. First off, we got to experience two major filming locations. We were on the Sony Pictures studio lot for the first day of our visit, but unfortunately were unable to see any filming (it was revealed that the scenes being filmed were pivotal to the plot and spoiler-heavy). On the second day of filming, we moved locations to an abandoned Costco warehouse and got our first glimpse of Captain Marvel (in her green Kree costume). We got to explore the set and jump aboard two major Kree and Skrull spaceships (more on the Kree/Skrull storyline below). We also got to watch directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck at work filming a scene between Captain Marvel and her team known as Starforce.

Beyond getting to experience the behind-the-scenes movie magic of CAPTAIN MARVEL, we learned about the film’s development, plot, characters, comic book inspirations, and more. We also got to chat with the stars of the film, including Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Jude Law (TBD), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau).
