“It also got us talking about different genres, exploring this notion of sort of the ‘90s action film. We hadn’t necessarily done anything like that before either, so there are definitely homages to our favorite ‘90s action films within Captain Marvel. Not necessarily talking about any particulars of the story, but the action elements of Terminator 2. That’s about as iconic as you get, looking at kind of those cool street level fights, street-level car chases, and fun stuff like that.”
With most of the movie possibly taking place in space during the 90s, directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will be setting the tone for what’s to come in the next decade of Marvel cinema. A double dose of classic action and female badassery might make this the flick that bridges generations! Whether it feels like a flashback or something entirely fresh and brand new, the audience is in for something special with Captain Marvel.
