The Marvels director Nia DaCosta gave an unexpected take on the now famous all-female superheroes scene of Avengers: Endgame,
revealing how it affected the direction of her upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel.
As part of an interview for Entertainment Weekly, DaCosta recounted her initial reaction to one of the film's most controversial scenes.
"I, like many women around the world, watched Avengers: Endgame and had that six seconds of all the Marvel women together," DaCosta said.
"And at once I had chills, but I was also very annoyed. I was like 'Two hours of this, please.'
So it was really nice that they decided to do a team-up movie with three of my favorite heroes. So that's what was most exciting."
So, even though DaCosta appeared to view the event as a compromise but it did set the stage for her plans to develop an all-female super-hero showcase within the MCU.
The Marvels will be an update to the film of the same name in 2019 Captain Marvel and see Brie Larson return to the role of Carol Danvers
as she joins allies with recently-super-powered Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris)
who is now a mature S.W.O.R.D. Agent daughter of the deceased friend Maria who died, creating a rift between them.
