It’s been a long wait, but Marvel Studios has finally revealed that they’ve found their new director for Captain Marvel 2 in Nia DaCosta.
The first Captain Marvel movie ended up being rather divisive.
Some people thought it was good fun and actually pretty good – people like me.
Others didn’t like it at all and thought it was rather dull.
There were some people who didn’t like the sexual politics of the movie, and I don’t want to give too much time to those people.
Anyway, it was revealed by Marvel Studios that Captain Marvel 2 wouldn’t be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck – the people who directed the first movie.
They announced that they were looking for a new director who would replicate the character’s core values.
Well, it’s now been announced via Deadline that Marvel has found that person in Nia DaCosta.
Captain Marvel 2 will be directed by Candyman director, Nia DaCosta
It really seems as though DaCosta is going to be the next big name in Hollywood.
She’s currently working on her reboot of the Candyman franchise.
That’s an eagerly anticipated horror movie which is also being produced by Jordan Peele.
Megan McDonnell, a story editor on the Marvel-based series WandaVision, has already penned the script for Captain Marvel 2.
It’s also been confirmed that Brie Larson is going to be returning to star as the titular Marvel character.
