With production companies picking up again following the coronavirus pandemic, Marvel Studios has good news for the comic fans. Marvel Studios is now looking forward to 2022 movies and first up seems to be Captain Marvel 2. The production company has now announced that directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will not be returning for the sequel, and someone else would be will take the helming reins from them.
Filmmaker Ryan Fleck took to Twitter to announce to confirm his status as a class act and revealed that Nia DaCosta has been selected for the position. He said, “Congratulations @NiaDaCosta !!!!!! Can’t wait to see where you take this! Anna and I are thrilled for you and wishing you the very best! Higher Further Faster! #CaptainMarvel2”
Captain Marvel 2, starring Brie Larson comes as Nia Dacosta’s third directorial feature. She made her directorial debut with Little Woods, which was premiered to the public last year at the Tribeca Film Festival and Los Angeles Film Festival. She received wide critical acclaim for the film. Following that, DaCosta directed Candyman, a direct sequel to the same-named 1992 movie. The film stars Tony Todd, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Teyonah Parris and Jordan Peel was the producer of the film. To her other credit, she has also directed multiple episodes of the British TV series Top Boy.

The sequel for Captain Marvel was first announced by the Marvel Chief Kevin Feige at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. But it wasn’t until earlier this year that the sequel was confirmed to be moving for production. Along with DaCosta, Megan McDonnell is the staff writer on the Marvel Disney+ series WandaVision.
Previous reports suggest that the film will take place in the present-day and it could be a set up for the next Avengers movie. Although the main plot of the film is unclear, there’s plenty of set-up from the first Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Avengers: Endgame, for Marvel to have plot threads to pull on.
