Captain Marvel star Brie Larson confirms that filming for The Marvels has begun. August 11, 2021

It has been believed that The Marvels would start filming in April. Today on Sirius XM, Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson confirmed that filming is now underway in London.

“It’s pretty surreal when you’re doing films like this, they’re unlike anything else: huge sets, huge amount of people on set, a lot of specialist specialty things. It’s a really unique experience. “I’m a huge fan of Disneyland, so to me it feels like I get to go to my own private Disneyland every single day, because they’re building all these insane worlds that no-one else knows about, no-one else gets to see. I’m in sets that are bigger than you can imagine right now and it’s really special, and it’s super fun and bizarre.”
