The Marvels sets up UK shoot
Pre-production is underway in the UK on The Marvels, the sequel to the 2019 feature Captain Marvel and a continuation of the Disney+ series, Ms. Marvel.
Nia DaCosta directs the feature from a screenplay by Megan McDonnell. Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel with Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.
The features are just two of the hefty tranche of inward investment projects continuing to pour into the UK. Wonka, an origins story about the years before Willy Wonka opened his chocolate factory, is readying to shoot later this year.
The fifth in the series of films about adventuring archaeologist Indiana Jones is also deep into prep in the UK, with filming expected to get up and running in late summer.
