In an exclusive from Variety, the Captain Marvel movie has found its directors. Marvel has selected Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct the upcoming superhero film starring Brie Larson in the titular role. Boden and Fleck are known for their work on Mississippi Grind.
Marvel Studio has taken its time in selecting the director for Captain Marvel. They have heavily emphasized that they specifically want a female director to guide the direction of this film. It is interesting to me that after making a big deal about the female director that they would select a female/male duo, but who am I to question such things?
Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman are currently writing the script. The story will focus on Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy project, and flight.
Kevin Feige is producing and, now that directors have been selected, we may get more casting news soon to follow.
