RELATED: Captain Marvel 2 Gets Candyman Director Nia DaCosta "Marvel is a little bit of a house of cards in a sense that everything influences everything around it, even if it's very modular.

She an incredible character, but I will also say that since Marvel has done so many movies already, you really have to go out of your way to make sure her story is fresh, and doesn't borrow too heavily from the other films. She's an incredibly strong and wonderful hero, but all the Marvel characters are. So you just need to figure out how to bring her to life in a way that's unique to her story but in a way that honors the canon and also gearing out the roles that she needs to play with everything that's going on in the MCU.

The Emmy-nominated filmmakers behind the Netflix documentary discuss why the public should be concerned about how tech companies use our data. When The Great Hack premiered at Sundance in January 2019, and months later launched on Netflix in June, a global pandemic was not a reality most envisioned in the near future. The Emmy-nominated documentary from husband-and-wife team Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim, who previously earned an Oscar nomination for the 2013 doc The Square (which Noujaim directed and Amer produced), is not about a global health crisis.
