Love Story Between Best Friends And Everything Else We Learned from the 'Captain Marvel' Cast
Hear what the stars have to say about 'Captain Marvel' on Earth's Mightiest Show!
During the Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" press junket, our very own Judy Stephens got to sit down with the stars and creators of film to talk all things Captain Marvel on a brand-new episode of Earth's Mightiest Show. You can watch the clip above.
Here are 5 things we learned from the junket from the cast and crew!
1. "Captain Marvel" is a love story between two best friends.
According to actor Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), "To recognize that type of friendship can be just as a powerful and fierce as any romantic is a revolution in itself." Learn more about Carol and Maria's friendship here.
2. You don't need super powers to be a super hero.
Star Lashana Lynch, who plays Maria Rambeau, revealed, "Not everyone has powers in a literal sense but some people have powers inside. She's already setting up a new generation of young women that are going to come up and take over the world. She's casually doing it just by being herself."
3. Defying Super Hero Tropes
Samuel L. Jackson appreciated the touching subject matter at the center of the film and what his colleagues brought to the table, whether it was about self-discovery or friendship. "There are a lot of notes that get hit on in this film that don't normally get hit on with what people refer to as super hero movies," said Jackson.
4. Identify Your Kree Center
What did Starforce's Jude Law (Yon-Rogg) and Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva) love tapping into? Law dug diving into "the absolute belief that his way is the right way," while Chan elaborated, "Minn-Erva very much subscribes to the Kree ideology, for better or worse, rightly or wrongly, I'd love tapping into that side of things, and the physicality of it, of course."
5. Don't Forget Being Human Is A Good Thing
Co-writer and director Anna Boden revealed the message she's most excited to bring to young boys and girls everywhere is "embracing that humanity, that compassion, and valuing [yourself]." That is what gives you your power.
