It was only a matter of time before Marvel Studios got working on a sequel to Captain Marvel after the first film grossed $1.1 billion worldwide, and now THR reports that a follow-up to the 2019 superhero adventure is officially in development.
According to the trade, WandaVision writer Megan McDonnell has been brought on to pen the script. Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, meanwhile, are not expected to return to take the helm of the sequel, as Marvel wants to find a (solo) female director for the gig. Boden and Fleck are being looked at for a possible Disney+ series, however.
No plot details or proper title have been revealed yet, but the movie will update the action from the ’90s to the present day. Brie Larson will reprise the role of Carol Danvers.
Captain Marvel 2 is currently eyeing a 2022 release.
