Captain Marvel is on her way to being the star she was always meant to be.
Marvel has announced that Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve have been tapped to write the upcoming “Captain Marvel” film.
Perlman, of course, is not new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She was the co-writer of last year’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which introduced audiences to the ragtag crew of Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot as they formed a team to stop Ronan from destroying planets.
“Captain Marvel” will be LeFauve’s first venture into the MCU. LeFauve was the co-writer for Disney and Pixar’s upcoming animated film “Inside Out,” which revolves around the world of personified emotions that live within the mind of Riley, a girl who was recently uprooted due to her father’s new job, as they struggle to help Riley adapt.
Part of Marvel’s announced Phase 3 slate of comic-book films, “Captain Marvel” will see Carol Danvers hit the big screen as the first female superhero to star in an MCU solo title.
Comic book fans were introduced to a non-super-powered Carol Danvers in an issue of “Marvel Super-Heroes” in 1968. The U.S. Air Force pilot later became the first incarnation of Ms. Marvel after being caught in an explosion with a previous incarnation of Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell) causes her DNA to fuse with that of the Kree hero’s, resulting in Danvers gaining superpowers.
Danvers eventually takes on the mantle of Captain Marvel to honor her predecessor in an ongoing monthly series written by Kelly Sue DeConnick that launched in 2012.
This “Captain Marvel” news comes shortly Warner Bros. announced Patty Jenkins as the new director for its upcoming “Wonder Woman” film. The DC Entertainment superhero film was initially to be helmed by Michelle MacLaren.
“Captain Marvel” is scheduled to be released Nov. 2, 2018.
