Notably, Menon explained that filming the show’s episodes felt almost like “make a movie“Because of the great action sequences that alternate with those set in the Kamala school:
“It was very funny. I mean, I shot the second and third episodes, and both of them are very big episodes. They look like movies. It certainly felt like we were making a movie. The time we spent filming and the breadth of material we shot … we went from very intense action sequences to scenes in the school cafeteria with the kids gossiping about who the newcomer is. The pendulum swinging between the ordinary and the extraordinary has been a constant feature on this show. And it was a lot of fun. It was a very fun roller coaster [ride]. “
When asked what it was like working with a big company like Marvel Studios on a big production like Ms. Marvelthe director explained:
“I had heard a few things but it was all quite new, because the Disney + platform was quite new. WandaVision wasn’t even out when we started filming, so I think we felt like we were part of the beginning of something, and we still feel like we were part of the beginning of something.. So it’s very exciting. “
