Shortlist Reveals Directors in the Running for 'Captain Marvel'by HaydnSpurrell
THR reports that a director shortlist has emerged for Marvel's upcoming Captain Marvel film, being lead by Brie Larson.
Names up for the gig include Niki Caro (Whale Rider), Lesli Linka Glatter (Walking Dead, Homeland), and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World).
The report indicates that it still might be some time before we know who helms the film. The film will feature Carol Danvers as the title hero. At one point, she was intended for Age of Ultron, but Kevin Feige decided it would be better to ease her into the universe.
The character will make her first appearance in Infinity War in 2018, and the solo film will slot between that and the unnamed fourth Avengers film, out May 3, 2019.
Captain Marvel is out March 8, 2019.
