In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor spoke about his feelings regarding the upcoming superhero film and how upon his first time watching footage he was blown away by the dynamics that were present on screen. 

‘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.’

Nanjiani also commented on the fact that although the movie was centered around superheroes, he felt that the majority of the picture would actually defy expectations in its portrayal of relationships between its characters.

‘While you have certain scenes where you’re hanging up on a wire fighting bad guys and you have all these superpowers, the rest of it does feel like you’re making something really small.’
