Good Omens SXSW Experience

The delightful chaos wrought by Amazon Studios’ new Good Omens TV series at SXSW cannot be denied or ignored, literally. With such an enormously immersive marketing strategy, you’d expect it was being positioned as the next Game of Thrones or Westworld, both of which saw HBO employ similar tactics in years past. But, you’d be utterly and completely wrong.

Good Omens is something entirely different — and, if successful, could have the potential to usher in a new era of TV.

Though there have been many strong female characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel is the first time that Marvel Studios brings its fans a female superhero standalone film. The film sees Brie Larson play Carol Danvers, a highly skilled soldier of Star Force, an elite Kree peacekeeping force, separated from her troop when she crash lands on the planet Earth. Determined to reunite with her team, she soon discovers that she has a deep connection with this planet, and starts to search for the clues that could help unlock the memories of her mysterious past.

We were invited to attend the Captain Marvel press junket with our fellow journalists to talk to Larson, Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), and Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva). Additionally, MCU alum members Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) also attended to chat about appearing in the upcoming film.

As much as this is a continuation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel holds so much more meaning for the studio. It’s Marvel Studios’ first female standalone film, and one with such an empowering message and a character who will be a symbol of inspiration to everyone, especially young girls. And that would not have been possible without directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who took their character-driven story approach to the upcoming film. Find out more about their leap from small films to Marvel Studio blockbuster tentpoles below.

When Marvel Studios releases Captain Marvel this week, you can expect audiences to have their full attention on the title character as she lights up the screen. However, there’s one particular character that might steal the show: an orange cat named Goose. But don’t let his appearance fool you — Goose is actually a flerken, a mighty and powerful alien that just happens to look like a feline.

Geeks of Doom was invited to attend the Captain Marvel press conference, where Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau), Jude Law (Yon Rogg), Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) talked about what it was like to work with a “snack-oriented” cat and his three other stunt doubles, as well as letting a cat do their thing while filming, and how the cats demanded respect. Check out what they all had to say here below.

The 2019 Oscars or Academy Awards were like no other. There was a superhero film up for Best Picture and a superhero film actually won for Best Animated Feature. Among top films to come away a winner this year was an Alfonso Curaón film named Roma. It scored an industry first in that despite the fact that it was available for viewers to stream on Netflix even as it was still playing in theaters, Roma was not only a serious contender for competitive awards like Best Director and Best Picture, it actually won three of the four awards it was nominated for.

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Captain Marvel

Set in the 1990s and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who arrives on the planet Earth after engaging in a fight against the Skrulls. Separated from her team, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) will help Carol find the answers she is looking for and help prevent the war between the Kree and the Skrulls from reaching their planet.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast and crew of Captain Marvel. There, both Jackson and Gregg talked about working with de-aging film technology, what it took to convince them to return, and what piece of ’90s nostalgia they would like to see make a comeback. Check out what the two had to say below.
