DeCosta said:

I just nerded out. I was like, here are the movies I think you should do! Galactus, Storm, and Scott Summers team-up movie! Blah blah blah!

Nia DaCosta is clearly a big Marvel fan, and from the sounds of it could not help but word vomit ideas all over the pitch meeting, shouting potential projects and character names that the studio should be focused on.

Marvel was more than happy to listen to DaCosta who praises the studio’s patience and hands-off approach, something which ultimately convinced her to sign on to helm the Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels.

She just endured me going in super-deep. And she also gave me a lot of confidence that I would have the creative latitude to not just basically be a puppet on a string.

In closing, DaCosta revealed her approach to the comic book movie outing, comparing it to Candyman.

I can say it’s a very different beast. But I am obsessed with how we all deal with our pain and trauma, and there’s some of that in the story
