With Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel now available on Blu-ray and digital platforms, I recently sat down with Nancy Wilson from the band Heart to talk about what it meant having a song and the band’s t-shirt in the movie. During the interview, she talked about how they got involved in the film, how the movie almost used two songs, what she thought about the film, and more. In addition, early in her career, Heart went on tour as Queen’s opening act and she shared some cool, behind-the-scenes stories, about the band and Freddie mercury. She also shared her thoughts on Bohemian Rhapsody and Rami Malek’s performance.
As most of you already know, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, and at the start of the film, she’s a Kree warrior fighting with a Special Forces-like group known as Star Force in the Kree-Skrull War. She doesn’t remember her human past but ultimately, winds up crash landing back on Earth where she runs into MCU mainstay Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) where they team up. The film also stars Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, Lee Pace, Gemma Chan, Lashana Lynch, and Mckenna Grace.
