An artificial intelligence system has taken the MCU’s fictional universe in a completely different direction, creating a cast of characters who have real-world identities.
The new MCU film, directed by Sam Mendes, is the third in the series of films based on the characters of the comics.
In this film, the characters are not merely robots who do their jobs, but have real personalities and histories.
The film has been dubbed “a new MCUs first film” because it is a first-person narrative film and takes place in the real world.
It’s based on a script by writer/director Sam Mendez and features a cast including Chris Pine, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Affleck, Emily Blunt, Lupita Nyong’o, and Jon Bernthal.
The film was released in the US on November 8.
“We wanted to take this idea that our heroes are all robots and take it to another level,” Mendes told the Associated Press.
“The technology that is at the core of this film is not a technology that’s been in our universe since the early 1970s.”
Mendes said the film’s “real-world” cast includes Scarlett Johanson, who plays the cyborg assassin Maya Hansen, and Mark Ruffalos, who played the assassin John Fowley in the original MCU, as well as Idris Elba, Josh Brolin, Jai Courtney, Emily VanCamp, and more.
It also includes Benedict Cumberbatch, who was previously rumored to be a part of the film, and Idris Taoufik, who also played the lead in the comic books.
“It’s not the first time we’ve done this,” Mendez said.
“We have a lot of people in the room who have been working on this since the first one came out.”
He added that the MCUs original cast consisted of “a bunch of robots who did their job and had their own stories, so this is very much a story that’s going to have a whole new cast of people who are playing different parts.”
Mende, who is also the executive producer on the film with his brother-in-law, Martin Mendes.
He said the two had worked together for a long time before this film.
“In our universe, the heroes are robots,” Mende said.
“I think that’s a huge departure from the previous films.
I think it’s a great idea, and I think we’re going to do it.”
Mendez said he and his brother worked closely on the script before working with a production company to produce the film.
He added that they worked closely with a number of actors and writers.
“This is going to be our first film in five years,” he said.
The filmmakers have not yet announced a release date for the film and Mendes said he would not be able to give any specifics.
