And that was at all times my [experience], ‘It’s Marvel, we may shoot ceaselessly.’ And so they’re like, ‘Nah.’ So it was a really totally different expertise from the remainder of the flicks. However on the identical time, it was plenty of enjoyable.
“Those movies are like summer camp,” Mackie continued. “And this show, it was no different. It was the same group of people, coming together to make it work.
