The most headline-making project in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this point is The Marvels, which is due later this week. The movie, which stars an ensemble led by Brie Larson, has made a worldwide buzz, making director Nia DaCosta a household name. Turns out the filmmaker has now expressed her wish to work with the Badshah Of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan

Yes, you read that right. Nia’s directorial The Marvels stars Brie as Captain Marvel, Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel, and Teyonah Parris as Captain Monica Rambeau. With Samuel L Jackson joining them as Nick Fury, the movie will be a big gateway into the world of the Multiverse and also mutants in a way. 

Now, as Nia DaCosta promotes her big Marvel Cinematic Universe release in India, the filmmaker was asked which actor from Bollywood she would want to work with if she gets a chance to, and the filmmaker didn’t even blink an eyelid before taking Shah Rukh Khan’s name.

Further, she was asked whether there was ever a conversation to rope in a Bollywood star in The Marvels like Farhan Akhtar was hired for Ms Marvel, but she revealed there was no discussion. “I never thought about that. I think we were just keeping everything really organic so we never wanted to do any kind of stunt casting. But there is always time, there’s always time," she said.

The Marvels will hit the big screens worldwide on November 10, 2023. Stay tuned to OTTplay for more.
