"I was ignorant. I didn’t know those [Marvel] movies well enough until a family who I consider, like, my adopted family had me watch them," Charlize told the Hollywood Reporter .

She continued, "They’re crazy Marvel fans, and I always used to make fun of them. Like, 'Oh my God, you guys are such fucking nerds.'"

"They were like, 'You need to fucking sit down and watch.' So, we watched all the movies, and I was like, 'Oh my God, they’re so fucking good,'" Charlize said.

She added that her kids got in on it, too, and it ended up being "such an enjoyable ride."

"There's a mythology around it, and it's been thought out over decades with Clea, and I’m challenged by that. Like, how do you reinvent that? So, I’m excited," she concluded.
