If you didn't see the first film, the story revolves around Carol Danvers as she becomes the vastly powerful Captain Marvel after the Earth is caught at the middle of a galactic conflict in 1995. Now, plans for the sequel are finally coming together.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Megan McDonnell, who is now one of the staff writers on Marvel spin-off series WandaVision, is set to pen the script. THR reports that Marvel is now on the hunt for a female filmmaker for Captain Marvel 2, which will move forward from the 1990s setting to the present day. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck wrote and directed it alongside co-writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet. However, the duo are in in talks to remain in the Marvel Universe and direct a possible Disney+ series.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the Marvel studio is seeking a female director to take on the movie, which has a potential 2022 premiere date. McDonnell is in final negotiations to land the job, according to THR. We've known for some time that WandaVision will feature Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau.
Despite being some of their most popular properties, sequels for Captain Marvel, Black Panther, and Spider-Man were not officially announced, leaving fans to wonder when the next films in these beloved franchises would be rolling around.
The Captain Marvel sequel is reportedly being eyed for a 2022 debut, although no date has been specified.
