It’s been a long road to the discovery of the director that Marvel Studios had in line to helm their upcoming and highly anticipated Captain Marvel film. Finally now we have confirmation via an exclusive report via Variety that “Missippi Grind” directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck are going to direct the film.
This comes as a suprise as these filmmakers were not on the shortlist that was announced a few months ago. However that does not discredited Marvel as they have a talent of casting reletively underground filmmakers and guiding them into the blockbuster pedigree.
Currently the script is being worked on by “Guardians of the Galaxy” co-writer Nicole Perlman and “Inside Out” co-writer Mega LeFauve, with Brie Larson (“Room”, “Freefire”) attached to star in the titual role.
Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019.
