Candyman’s Nia DaCosta to direct Marvel’s ‘Captain Marvel’ sequel
Safe to say Ms. DaCosta’s trajectory is destined for good things.
Nia DaCosta will oversee MCU’s next war between the Skrulls and Kree.
The director of Little Woods and Monkeypaw’s upcoming Candyman reboot has signed on to direct Marvel’s Captain Marvel sequel starring Brie Larson.
The studio met with several directors and it was DaCosta, who takes over for Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who “seemed to have the edge for quite some time” according to insider sources
Neither Disney nor Marvel Studios made the announcement official, but perhaps Brie Larson’s most recent Tweet is a foreshadowing of what’s to come:
I’ve been saving something special since last summer to share with you. Tomorrow!!!
Megan McDonnell, story editor on the Marvel’s WandaVision, wrote the script. Captain Marvel is slated to hit theaters July 8, 2022.
Final word: Aside from this awesome news, would it be much to ask DaCosta’s Little Woods star and present Asgardian ruler - Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie - to show up in Captain Marvel 2?
