While Brie Larson's second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is well on its way to release in 2023, the film director, Nia DaCosta, reveals some important details regarding the film.

DaCosta said that the superhero characters that the fans are going to see in the film are included after a lot of thinking from the filmmakers and the characters will be provided equal time in the film. "It's interesting, and something we thought about and worked through a lot, which was how do we get each of these really big, exciting heroes space in a two-hour film," DaCosta explained to Inverse in a recent interview.

She further discussed about Brie Larson's superhero characters Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau. "Captain Marvel has a history from the first film, Kamala will have her Ms. Marvel show, and Monica Rambeau, we've only seen her a little bit in WandaVision. A lot of what we've been thinking about is what part of the journey do we need to see for each of them? How do we honor the part of the story they're at in terms of the canon, while also within our story making them equal?"

During the same interview, DaCosta revealed the different challenges she faced while directing The Marvels when she was asked by the interviewer Are you able to challenge that formula to bring your own aesthetic to The Marvels?

She said, "That's a really good question. For The Marvels, my biggest thing going into it was making sure I approached these characters as human beings and not necessarily as superheroes. I want to know more about Captain Marvel. Who is she? What are her fears? What drives her? How do you actually deal with being the most powerful being in the universe? How does that weigh on you? That's the sort of thing I want to explore.

The 31-year-old filmmaker DaCosta also talked about the fact that The Marvels is just going to be her third and it is such a massive project. "You get to work with the best people in their field. My gaffer's amazing, my grip is amazing. It's been a really interesting experience because I've always had great crews, but there's something interesting about feeling like we were just totally in good hands at this huge scale," she said

My first film, if we didn't get it within the schedule, it was never going to happen. There was no additional photography. There was no, “Don't worry, shoot it till you get it right, we'll come back the next day.” Whereas on this, I'll be like, “Oh God, I have to rush,” and they're like, “No, don't rush. Don't finish it today, finish it tomorrow.” Having those resources is so helpful to tell the best story you can," she continued.

When asked about the fact that she has to face a lot of pressure from the fans as the movie is coming with so much expectations. DaCosta told Inverse that is something she is trying to figure since the Coronavirus Pandemic. "How do I deal with the pressure? Something I’ve been exploring since the pandemic started is work/life balance. This is my third movie in four and a half years, and that’s too much. I’m trying to put less significance on my worth through work. That helps me shoulder that pressure because I’m also thinking, “Am I a good friend? Am I a good sister? Am I living in the right city?” I also try to come at it like, I’m a fan. I'm doing the best I can as a fan as well as a creator and storyteller."
