Captain Marvel sequel is officially in development

When Marvel announced their big plans for phase 4 of their MCU, there were several new and exciting comic book characters that they wanted to introduce. There were also plenty of the expected sequels that were announced along the way like a new Thor, Black Panther and Doctor Strange movie. There was one film that didn’t have an official sequel announced though: Captain Marvel who had been introduced right at the end of phase 3 and represented Marvel’s first female-led superhero film. That the film made over $1 billion at the box office made it rather surprising that there seemingly weren’t any plans in place for another.

Well, there are plans in place and we will be seeing more of Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers as the studio has officially confirmed (via The Hollywood Reporter) that a sequel is in development with a planned release date in 2022. WandaVision writer Megan McDonnell is reportedly in talks to write the script for the film, though interestingly, directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck – who co-directed the first instalment – are not returning for the film project, with the report showing that they may tackle a separate Disney+ project instead. Those issues in securing the original directors perhaps being the reason for the delayed announcement of the project.

There are no details yet on what the story will be about, though it’s likely to ditch the 90s setting of the first movie that made the film such a nostalgia trip. Still, it will be interesting to see if they bring the character back into the rest of the current timeline post Endgame or perhaps tell the story of some of her exploits in between the films.

I guess once we know additional casting details, we will find out that answer based on if any of the characters from the first movie are in or not.  Expect the studio to be hotly pursuing a director though before they finalise all those details. Considering that Marvel has a trend for identifying up and coming director and getting them to helm their blockbusters, who would you like to see step into the director’s chair for Captain Marvel 2?

    A director who gets her to smile more perhaps? ?

    I liked the first movie though. Most of my concerns about the character and portrayal were well addressed in the movie.

    Let us just hope the white man hating B with an ITCH stops that PR nonsense so we can all focus on the film and not some SJW agenda kak

    I still need to see the first one. I also still need to see Black Panther. The only 2 in the franchise still outstanding for me.

    Really looking forward to all the new movies coming out. Marvel FTW.
    DC films just aren’t cutting it for me. Not even close.

      Personally for me the two you mentioned are the worst ones of the lot. But Far from home you must watch

      *Edit – but I still owe all of them on Blu Ray 🙂

        I know why I’ve been putting off Black Panther. I’ve seen the main ending fight CG. It just looks… off. I can’t do that. I’m ok with something looking CG. But there’s something about the CG that looks… weird. Bizarre. Like there’s 0 weight to any of it.

        Captain Marvel I missed on circuit and just never got round to it.

        Far From Home… Man I just suck for missing that lol

        It is a Marvel movie so I have to go see it but it is also damn near the worst movie I have seen only slightly saved by an alien cat.

          Look, I know it’s hard, but if you don’t like something why not give it a skip? I know it’s hard man. That completionist in you screaming to not miss anything in the franchise. But it will be ok man

          😛

            Took me 10 years to stop wow after realizing that I can just p[lay pokemon instead of wows version.

            I suck at skipping stuff. Once Tem Tem starts working properly I am screwed.

          I watch CinemaSins when I don’t want to see a movie. Sometimes he’s more entertaining that the movie

            Or RedLetterMedia, for that matter. There have been a bunch of recent movies and series that I wish I didn’t waste my time on and rather just watched the reviews or summaries from CinemaSins or Half in the Bag.
