Robert Downey Jr says The Avengers are 'like a family'


Lifecasts are common in films that use a lot of special effects and FX prosthesis, and given that Jackson is set to appear as a much different Nick Fury in Captain Marvel than we're used to, it isn't entirely surprising that the actor had to undergo the process ahead for the film.

While we wait, you'll be able to see Boseman and some of the other Black Panther stars in Marvel's next movie, Avengers: Infinity War, which opens April 27. That's about as iconic as you get, looking at kind of those cool street level fights, street level vehicle chases, and fun stuff like that. "We hadn't necessarily done anything like that before either, so there are definitely homages to our favorite '90s action films within Captain Marvel". The deal isn't final yet, but if it goes through, it will have major implications for the future of shared universe blockbusters and franchise filmmaking, particularly for Marvel Studios. "There's this constant contrasting thing about this Neanderthalic lughead who's way more intelligent than anybody else in the movie, by far". The action films of the 90s were over-the-top spectacles and very enjoyable popcorn movies, so mixing that aspect of those films with the Marvel formula should prove to make Captain Marvel both fun and entertaining. "We wanted to explore a period of time before Nick Fury is aware of the super-heroes and stuff of insane going on in the world. Like all of our genre inspirations, there are bits and pieces here and there".

We know Thanos doesn't take to kindly to the people who fail him (#Pray4Loki), and Gamora not only failed to deliver, she betrayed him, left him behind, became a fully-fledged hero, and got her sister to join her.

Notably, if Fury is a Skrull, it could have major ramifications for all of the MCU, and also mean that the S.H.I.E.L.D. boss that fans have come to know and love over the past decade isn't who he says he is at all.

So where does next year's Captain Marvel movie fit? You can head on over to Entertainment Weekly for their full interview with Kevin Feige.
