Iman Vellani, star of The Marvels, revealed a hilarious behind-the-scenes story from the set about meeting Samuel L. Jackson for the first time. In an interview, Vellani referred to her encounter with Nick Fury as an unusual one, stating that she was so taken aback by Jackson’s appearance that she had to hide behind The Marvels director Nia DaCosta.”Yes,but I was so in a state of utter shock that he exists beyond a 16:9 frame,”she recounted.”Seeing him in person and being able to see his legs, height, and walking swagger was just strange. It was so strange. He greeted everyone and shook hands when he first arrived on set, and I hid behind our director, Nia. I was freaking out too much. She was thus grappling with me in an attempt to bring me in front of her.”
In order to calm her anxiety when filming sequences with the Marvel veteran, Vellani stated that it was the Oscar winner who approached her first and gave her the ‘largest bear embrace that I’ve ever had in my whole life’. She described it as “so warm and welcoming.” “After that, I was quite good, although you’ll notice that I say a lot less when I’m with Sam in all of the sequences. I just said, “I’m being cautious here. I don’t want to interfere in any way with this man’s procedure. However, he likes Nick Fury so much and is a pleasure to work with. It was fantastic.” The last sequence of the emerging Canadian sensation The Marvels has drawn a lot of attention from viewers who have already seen the show. Fans are intrigued about what the big climax may hint to in the future. The key moment in question shows Kamala Khan surreptitiously enlisting Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfeld, for the squad she intends to form. When Vellani first heard about the sequence, she said that it made her want to rewatch Iron Man (2008) in an effort to find her inner Nick Fury.
“So I never really got the script until right before additional photography and then I flipped out,” Vellani explained. “I texted Nia in all capitals and went back to see Iron Man right away. I said to myself, “I can’t believe I am receiving this honour right now.” This is absurd! It didn’t hurt to watch the entire movie again, even if I didn’t need to. I was thinking, “I feel so cool right now in my baseball cap,” during all of our practises. Also, that trench coat was really awesome. That’s when I first met Hailee, and it seemed like a dream. All of a sudden, I had a sense of belonging to something far greater.” Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have welcomed Vellani into the fold and have expressed gratitude for her true Marvel fangirl status. Vellani is gaining praise from both fans and reviewers for her feature playing debut in The Marvels. Nearly all reviews hail the young actress as the movie’s MVP. Star of Captain Marvel Brie Larson recently thought back on the moment she ushered Vellani into the series, continuing a legacy started by Scarlett Johansson, who was the first to congratulate her on securing her part in the MCU.
