Here’s an interesting detail that found its way online but somehow flew under everyone’s radar. Thank you to @GemBiscuits for bringing it to your attention. Cinematographer Sean Bobbitt has left quite an impact in the industry with his work on projects like The Place Beyond the Pines, Shame, 12 Years a Slave, and the recently released Judas and the Black Messiah. It looks like the industry veteran has set his sights on his next major project, as he seemingly has joined Nia DaCosta‘s untitled Captain Marvel 2 sequel. In two separate interviews, he pointed out his involvement with the project. When BTL was asked about recording from COVID, he revealed his involvement.
I’m hoping to get back. I’m sort of signed up to shoot Captain Marvel II, so that will be a real change for me. It’s a very different type of film to what I usually make, and I’m very excited to be part of that.
He also confirmed his involvement with the sequel in the GCS Podcast. As he points out, it is quite a departure from his usual projects. Captain Marvel‘s sequel will probably continue the more space-focused story. Bobbitt has pointed out that the CGI world he is about to enter might be his biggest worry, as he wants to keep the focus on the people. It looks like the upcoming sequel might be a departure from the previous entry that can take Brie Larson‘s character to new highs and add a unique visual style that Marvel Studios has yet to truly explore.
So far, we know that Teyonah Parris is reprising her role from WandaVision as Monica Rambeau. Iman Vellani will also play Kamala Khan following her Ms. Marvel Disney+ series. Zawe Ashton has also joined the project in a villainous role, which is still being kept a secret. The project is shaping up to be quite an interesting addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and we cannot wait to see what the sequel has to offer.
