After the original directors of Captain marvel have stepped down, Brie Larson could possibly be the co-director of the sequel.
Being a superhero in one of MCU’s productions is a task in itself. Rigorous training, frustrating diet, and shooting for days at the end is exhausting. Which is why we have never really seen a lead actor directing a superhero movie as well. Of course, that would take considerable amount of time and energy.
Hold your horses! We have a superhero that very much rumoured to direct their own movie. Yep, cheers to Brie Larson.
Brie Larson justified the role of mighty Captain Marvel and it is safe to say that there was no looking back then. Following which her cameos in Avengers: Endgame stood out too. Could she even jump into directing territory and own it like the boss that she is?
Well, she certainly could, for there have been rumours about her co-directing the sequel of Captain Marvel. And if the rumours are to believed then Brie Larson will be the director of Captain Marvel 2.
The directors and co-writers of the first part- Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck – are reportedly not returning to work for the sequel.
However, these two will remain in the MCU for future productions.
What could this mean?
For the ones who didn’t know, Brie Larson has already made her directorial debut in 2017 with Unicorn Store. So, she definitely isn’t a noobie.
With some directorial experience and understanding of the MCU standards as the lead superhero, she will possibly be just the director that Captain Marvel 2 needs.
Captain Marvel will be set in the present day, unlike the first part which was in the 90s.
Everything we know about it so far
Rumour has it that one of the X-Men characters Rogue will be playing the role of the main villain in Captain Marvel 2.
Who will it be? Well, we can only guess for so long.
People are expecting Dakota Fanning to star as Rogue and lay battle with the all-consuming Captain Marvel.
Rogue is a member of a known terrorist group. It would be the first X-Men character to have been introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Disney acquired Fox.
Ready for another rumour?
Well, Captain Marvel 2 will witness the coming together of an all-female superhero A-Team. After having displayed their savagery in Avengers: Endgame, the A-team will be set up by Captain and Nova, as per the rumours.
If that wasn’t enough to take the female superhero quotient up a notch in Captain Marvel 2, Kevin Fiege and Marvel have expressed their interest in having female Thor Jane foster in the sequel too. Fans of Natalie Friggin Portman, are you listening?
Could things get any more exciting?
Captain Marvel 2 will reportedly not be a part of phase 4 of MCU. However, it is already in the works and will be hitting the silver screen sometime in February 2022.
