“And it's really such a science-fiction story. It's a superhero story, but in some ways, it's the most sci-fi of all the Marvel movies and it's the most epic of all the Marvel movies. And the story spans thousands of years. So it's really not like any of the other Marvel movies."

Nanjiani also took the time to explain his own love of the genre, openly asserting, "I love superhero movies, but beyond that, this is exactly the type of movie that I love.”

He then continued to tease the film, by adding, “The story is just so big and so epic. And I don't mean epic in the internet way, I mean epic in the old-school way…It doesn't look like any of the other Marvel movies. I was on set shooting, and the director showed me just a still of all of us together in the scene. And I was like, 'I mean, look at all of us together.' We all look so different.”
