Just a few weeks in the past, Anthony Mackie obtained the passcode to learn the upcoming script for Captain America: New World Order. Throughout an look on The Kelly Clarkson Present, Mackie describes procedures for studying Marvel scripts, which appear to require about the identical security clearance as nuclear code entry. “We actually get a passcode to a web site that provides us a location,” he defined. The actors then go “to satisfy the particular person to signal, to take a seat with a pc, and skim our script.”
It looks as if actually no one at Marvel thinks a lot of the trustworthiness of their actors. “They don’t belief no one,” stated Mackie. He describes the dismissive method that individuals deal with him when he does arrive to learn the script, saying that they complain concerning the velocity at which he reads.
This isn’t the primary time individuals have complained about these measures. Zoe Saldana, who needed to take an Instagram down of herself flipping by a script, stated to InStyle that the secrecy “could be annoying typically.” Joe and Anthony Russo stated to Rotten Tomatoes that Robert Downey Jr. was doubtless the one one who noticed the complete Endgame script, whereas each different actor was given their components piecemeal. Just lately, Bloomberg reviews that Disney is at the moment making an attempt to determine who leaked the Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania transcript on Reddit.
What makes all of this infinitely sillier is the truth that most of those movies are primarily based on comedian books and storylines which have been circulation for years, if not a decade. What’s the level? Spoilers solely exist for many who are on-line (and most time solely exist for people who search them out), and don’t have an effect on an enormous majority of the viewers. It appears wildly self-important to demand this stage of secrecy reasonably than simply trusting your actors. Marvel actors deserve higher.
