“[Wes] filters us all into this movie with a great amount of fidelity. He’s almost like this master chef,” he said. “He says, OK, you’ll come in for this bit. I need you to come in for this. 18 takes later he’s got what he wants, and he’ll say, can you hang around for another day?

The Marvel star also admitted how grateful she is to be able to bring her child on set.
“I mean I feel very fortunate because I have a lot of friends who are working moms and they go back to work, you know, just a couple of months after giving birth and they don’t get to bring their babies on set,” she said. “So I really feel very lucky to be working in that kind of environment where that is possible.”
