ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Star Michelle Pfeiffer Reveals Biggest Challenge Of Working With Marvel Studios
Ant-Man and The Wasp star Michelle Pfeiffer (Batman Returns) has shared some insights into the main challenge of working with Marvel Studios and what it's like to have the script change during shooting.
It's no secret that Marvel Studios often makes it up as they go along when it comes to their movies and TV shows, with the script potentially in flux right until the moment shooting finishes. It's an approach to storytelling we've seen pay off for the MCU on countless occasions at this stage, but it's fair to say that it doesn't always prove the easiest environment to adapt to for actors.
During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show, Ant-Man and The Wasp star Michelle Pfeiffer shared some of the biggest challenges she's been presented with since joining the MCU.
"[Marvel Studios is] very mysterious, and they’re very secretive, of course, with their storylines. It’s a little hard because I met with [director] Peyton [Reed], and I knew a little bit about the character, but there was no script. You have to commit without actually having read anything."
"It wouldn’t have mattered because it all changes anyway," Pfeiffer continued. "You don’t really know what you’re getting into, and then you get a script right before you start shooting, and then it changes every day. And then you shoot the movie, and you wrap, and then it changes again."
The actress would go on to admit that this was particularly difficult for her, as she struggles with improvisation and having to go off the shooting script she's given (we know of at least a few MCU movies where cameras started rolling when there was no third act in place at that time).
Pfeiffer didn't share any new intel on Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, but it's still interesting to hear these insights from someone who's been thrown into the thick of Marvel Studios' way of filmmaking.
