UPDATE: Well-placed sources have indicated that there is no truth to this rumor.
The Marvels, Marvel Studios' upcoming sequel to Captain Marvel, was recently pushed back from July 28, 2023 to November 10, 2023, and if a new rumor is to be believed, there could be a little more to the story than we've previously been led to believe.
Shortly after the delay was announced, reports indicated that the movie was pushed back to allow more time for post-production, and while that may be the case, Jeff Sneider has heard that it's not the main reason.
On tonight's episode of The Hot Mic, Sneider said he'd heard that star Brie Larson has not been the easiest to work with (the word "nightmare" was used), and has clashed with co-star Teyonah Parris. We're not exactly sure why or how this could impact the film's post-production process, but Sneider suggested that there has been some diva-like behaviour behind-the-scenes.
Apparently, Larson wasn't happy that the sequel was titled The Marvels and not "Captain Marvel 2," because she feels the franchise was originally built around her being cast in the lead role before any writer or director was brought on board.
Oh, and the Blade delays? Mahershala Ali is said to feel exactly the same way about the MCU reboot!
This is walking the fine line of industry gossip, and if it didn't come from such a reliable source we probably wouldn't put much stock in it, but here we are!
We could well get some swift and stern rebuttals/denials to this one, so keep an eye out for updates, and be sure to check out the episode for yourselves below.
