The much-awaited movie of the year, The Marvels, has finally released on Friday, and it's going super crazy the whole weekend. This is Diwali season in India, and the movie has collected Rs. 5.26 Crore so far. Another thing that's more exciting, other than being a Marvel movie, is watching Korean actor, Park Seo-Joon for the very first time in a Marvel movie. Although this news made quite headlines since last year, the latest trailer elevated the craze among fans when they saw the first glimpse.

The Marvels story

The Marvels shows Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel, has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. However, unintended consequences see her shouldering the burden of a destabilised universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with two other superheroes to form the Marvels.

While talking to The Hollywood Reporter, the director, Nia DaCosta shared that Vellani was super stressed after seeing Samuel Jackson on the set. Although she's a very hard working actor and performed her character very well, when she first met Samuel Jackson, she was so stressed that she literally hid behind DaCosta.
