Captain Marvel Director Says Script Was “Constantly Changing”

The 2019 Marvel film Captain Marvel introduced long time Marvel heroine Carol Danvers (Played by Brie Larson), who has been known as both Ms. Marvel and Captain Marvel. Former U.S. Air Force pilot turned galactic protector she battles various forces that threaten mankind and is one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s top assets.

The 2019 film was announced in 2014 as part of Phase 3 of the MCU and was meant to be a major part of 2019’s Avengers Endgame. However the film wasn’t without its issues. Recently co-director, Anna Boden, shed some light on the film’s production, specifically that the scrip was constantly being altered or changed:

“So the script is constantly changing because the movie is constantly changing and growing, all throughout development, all throughout production, and all throughout post. And there is a real desire to be responsive to what the movie is becoming in any moment.” 

This does send off a few red flags. With a constantly changing script this could definitely throw off the schedule and even the film’s budget. She later stated that she was prepared for such changes:

“I am a super planner. I like to know what I’m doing, have a lot of private time to meditate on it, to really think about it, and to figure out how to best execute it. And then to come on set on the day with a plan that I understand so well that when something comes and changes, I can be very flexible in the moment – because of all the preparation I’ve done ahead of time. That is my style.”


The idea of a script constantly being changed during filming doesn’t seem like a vary good sign. Most times you have everything planned out that way the production goes smoothly. But seemingly winging it and not knowing what the finished product will be is concerning on a production as large as this. Perhaps the inconsistencies with certain plot points in the final film were the result of these changes.

Brie Larson will be reprising her role as Carol Danvers in 2023’s The Marvels, and will star alongside Iman Vellani and Teyonah Parris.
