Directors and producers of the MCU series, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are also in the process of finishing a Batgirl film for the DCEU and HBO Max. They do the comparison for us!
Two universes. Two franchises. Two superheroines. And two directors to direct them. Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are producers of Miss Marvel, of which they also directed the first and the last episode. And curiously, they work at the same time for the camp opposite, since they have been filming the feature film for a few months Batgirlfor the DCEU and Warner Bros.’ HBO Max streaming platform.
For Première, they explain how Miss Marvel and Batgirl look alike :
“There are similarities, in the sense that they are two ‘Origin Stories’. But also two stories of young women who are looking for their place in this world and who suddenly find themselves crushed by the weight of the mission, of the responsibilities.”
Who is Iman Vellani, the young actress who breaks the screen in Miss Marvel?
“But frankly, the comparison stops there!”temper the two Belgian filmmakers in the process.
“Miss Marvel is a series so much more colorful, enthusiastic. Suitable for the whole family. While Batgirl will be much darker! It will also be fun in some ways, but it will also be dark, because it takes place in Gotham City and there will be Batman in it (Michael Keaton will resume his role, editor’s note). So yeah, they don’t have much in common and I would say we’re on both ends of the superhero spectrum.”
Miss Marvel will continue this Wednesday on Disney+. Batgirl is expected in 2023 on HBO max.
