This is Jessica Chastain’s first Marvel film. She has not spoken much about her role however, she did mention on ‘The Graham Norton Show’, that her character was alien. Meanwhile, she has turned down roles in ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘Ant-Man’ in the past.

The film wrapped on the same day ‘Deadpool 2’ wrapped.

It was supposed to be released in November 2018, but the film was delayed due to reshoots! However, the wait will most certainly be worth it.

Like many comic books, this film is about a superhero succumbing to their powers and turning to their dark side. However, will it be a happy ending?
