Captain Marvel Enlists Oscar Nominated Production Designer

 

As Captain Marvel heads towards the start of production, its core crew is beginning to come together, most recently recruiting Andy Nicholson for production design. Though Captain Marvel was announced some time ago, the various members of the film’s cast and crew have only slowly trickled in over the years. With shooting said to begin in January or February of next year in California, however, more and more announcements have been made in recent months. Comic-Con brought with it word that the movie will take place in the ’90s and tackle the Kree-Skrull War. It may even feature Nick Fury, though Samuel L. Jackson has continued to play cat and mouse about that.

While more casting information will be on the way in the coming months as Captain Marvel gets ready to shoot, the crew has slowly been assembled. Along with directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Marvel recently brought aboard Tomb Raider writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet to rework the previous script by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out). The decision was met with some apprehension, but fans have been assured things aren’t starting over from scratch. And with the script and direction in place, the film now has someone to oversee the look of the movie.

Omega Underground is reporting that Oscar Nominated Production Designer Andy Nicholson has come aboard Captain Marvel. Nicholson’s work is best known from Gravity, which landed him the Academy Award nom. It should also set him up to tackle the partially intergalactic setting of Captain Marvel. Interestingly, Nicholson also served as the Art Director on Captain America: The First Avenger, which will also help him craft the feel of Carol Danvers big screen adventure.

Nicholson has also worked in various capacities on Alice in WonderlandAssassin’s Creed, and Divergent. His work will next be seen in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, where he served as Production Designer during the recently-wrapped shoot. Though not all of the films he’s worked on have been hits, they’ve all incorporated either fantasy, sci-fi, or period worlds that almost always needed to be wholly constructed from scratch. As such, he should be the perfect choice to tackle both a ’90s period piece and an epic intergalactic war.

With Captain Marvel just a few months away from starting production, the rest of the principal cast and crew will soon start coming aboard and being announced. When they do, we should get an even better sense of how the film will look and feel. For now, we’ve seen a few pieces of concept art, but more should make its way online as production gears up. Similarly, a synopsis and official look at Larson in costume aren’t out of the question before the year is out. Whenever more Captain Marvel news breaks, we’ll let you know.

Justice League Runtime, Rating and Sequel Talk

 

Justice League runtime, rating and sequel talk

Manabyte has confirmed that the Justice League runtime is 121 minutes, or two hours and one minute, which makes it the shortest of the DC Extended Universe films so far. Man of Steel was 143 minutes long, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in at 151 minutes, Suicide Squad with 123 minutes, and Wonder Woman was 141 minutes long. The Warner Bros. release has also received a PG-13 rating for “sequences of sci-fi violence and action,” which is not unusual for this type of film.

In related news, Total Film (via Cosmic Book News) spoke to J.K. Simmons, who plays Commissioner Gordon in Justice League and said a script for the sequel is in the works. “Well, Commissioner Gordon wears a trench coat in every scene, so I don’t know that the ‘pumped up’ part is going to be all that evident, especially when you’re standing next to Batman! But this is the first Justice League movie – we hope – of a few. They’re working on scripts for The Batman and for the next Justice League movie. It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don’t have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be.”

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.

Fueled by the hero’s restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Justice League sees Bruce Wayne enlist the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeMan of Steel), the screenplay is by Joss Whedon and Chris Terrio from a story by Snyder and Terrio. Whedon directed the additional photography for the sequel and is overseeing the completion of its post production following Snyder’s family tragedy. Justice League is produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck.

Justice League opens in theaters on November 17.
