Finally there is an update to “Captain Marvel 2,” which includes a writer and a possible release date.
“Captain Marvel 2,” as announced by The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday, January 22, anticipates a 2022 release with Megan McDonnell as script writer. Unlike the first film which was in the 1990s, the film will be set in the present day.
McDonnell also worked on “WandaVision,” the Disney+ miniseries based on Scarlet Witch and Vision. The series is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and anticipated for release this year.
The sequel will not be helmed by the directors of the first film, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Reportedly, Marvel is looking for a female director. Report said that Boden and Fleck could direct a Disney+ series.
The 2019 “Captain Marvel” is the MCU’s first female-led film and had a box-office success with $1.1 billion worldwide gross. The title role was performed by Academy award-winning actress Brie Larson.
