‘Candyman’ Director Nia DaCosta To Helm ‘Captain Marvel 2’

The Captain Marvel sequel has found its director.



In what’s been a hot minute since we last got any major MCU news. But now, Deadline are reporting that Marvel have hired Candyman director Nia DaCosta to helm the Captain Marvel sequel.

DaCosta, who broke out onto the film scene with her critically acclaimed indie film Little Woods in 2017, takes over the reigns from Anna Bodn and Ryan Fleck who directed the first film.

Megan McDonnell, a staff writer on the Marvel’s WandaVision Disney+ series, penned the script for the sequel, which will see Brie Larson returning to star in the titular role.

Marvel is said to have met with several female directors before landing DaCosta, who becomes the first Black female director to helm a Marvel movie.

The first Captain Marvel film made $1.13 billion worldwide. Despite being a Phase Three film, it felt like a Phase One Marvel movie and was pretty standard compared to most of the other MCU films around it. Despite that, the character has massive potential and will be the focal point of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I’m hoping DaCosta can take the character to the next level.
