Marvel Studios is officially moving forward with a sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel. Megan McDonnell, who has done some screenwriting for the upcoming Disney Plus series, WandaVision, has been chosen to develop the project.
Directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Bolden, who co-wrote and directed the billion dollar franchise opener, will not return to helm the sequel, which is expected to take place in the MCU’s present day. Marvel Studios is reportedly searching for a female director to head up the project which is expected to hit theaters in 2022.
