CAPTAIN MARVEL Lands Directors
With Marvel Studios’s Captain Marvel adapation still two years out from its release, the upcoming phase three adaptation is still taking shape with actress Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island) having been cast as of last July. Thankfully, word now, via Variety, writes that the film has found its directors in the form of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind, Showtime series The Affair and Billions) who’ve been in talks with Marvel execs for the last few weeks before being offered the movie last week.
The character itself bares numerous versions but will focus solely on the Carol Danvers iterarion based on her 1968 launch from creators Roy Thomas and Gene Colan, telling of an airforce pilot who awakens with superhuman powers and strength after surviving a deadly explosion involving weaponry that fuses her DNA with that of an alien. Guardians Of The Galaxy scribe Nicole Perlman & and Disney•Pixar’s Inside Out writer Meg LeFauve are behind the script with Kevin Feige producing for its March 8, 2019 release.
