Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige recently opened up about the inspiration for their upcoming film Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson.
In an interview with Total Film Feige noted the film is inspired by James Cameron’s [easyazon_link identifier=”B000JNN0SM” locale=”US” tag=”boundingintocomics-20″]Terminator 2: Judgment Day[/easyazon_link].
Feige explains, “These are definitely homages to our favourite ’90s action films.” He specifically references Terminator 2, “Those cool street-level fights and car chases.” The star of the film Brie Larson added, “I’m proud of what it is we’re making. All of the hype will be worth it.”
Comparing Captain Marvel to Terminator 2 is high praise. Terminator 2 might just be the greatest movie of all time and it’s chase sequences are some of the best ever.
What makes the chase scene so good is you don’t really know who is the good guy and who is the bad guy until Arnold shouts, “Get down!” Not only that, but the chase scene is extremely personal from the up-close fight between the two Terminators to the creeping music in the background. Not to mention the tension that builds throughout each of the scenes.
Larson went on to reiterate just how powerful Captain Marvel is stating, “She can move planets!” And it’s quite possible we will get to see her move planets as Feige confirmed, “Much of the movie takes place in outer space.”
Captain Marvel will see Carol Danvers takes flight as she becomes one of Marvel Studios’ most powerful heroes. However, it won’t be rosy as she will find herself caught in the middle of a galactic war between the fanatical Kree and the shape-shifting Skrulls. The film is expected to be set in the ’90s.
Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. It stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
