In an interview with Screen Rant, Natalie Portman express sincere praise and gratitude for Marvel’s forward-thinking approach to embracing unique styles of telling these superhero stories.
Portman stated that when she joined the franchise in Thor, no one knew what impact the MCU would have on the public. Since then, Marvel has grown immensely, thanks in part to the prominence that Kevin Feige and the studio they give to their artists, and notes that their willingness to take risks has repeatedly proved successful.
“It’s really crazy to think about it, because when we started, it was one of the first MCU movies. Iron Man, I think, had just come out and we arrived shortly after. It looked great, but we weren’t quite sure what the possibilities were, and I think it’s really a testament to what Kevin Feige and his entire team have done with the Marvel Universe.
I think Marvel really treats creative collaborators with so much respect and encourages and promotes all of this – yes, it promotes – creativity that really allows people to do their thing. [meglio].
Taika has brought all of her imagination and self into these films, which benefit greatly from them. I think they really understand how creative people bring us. “
