Nia DaCosta, director of Candyman, has been confirmed to be the director for Captain Marvel 2!
Here’s a quote from Deadline:
DaCosta takes over for Anna Bodn and Ryan Fleck, who directed the first pic to massive box office success. Marvel is known for switching up its directors on its popular franchises like Thor, Iron Man and Captain America to give the next installment a fresh voice, and had been meeting with candidates for the past couple of months.
Finding out this news got me excited for Captain Marvel 2. I enjoyed Little Woods and I’m excited for Candyman, so Captain Marvel 2 will be amazing! Also, to see an African American woman direct a big film, especially a Marvel movie, made me happy (same with Ava DuVernay who’s doing New Gods). I love this, and Captain Marvel 2 is officially one of my most anticipated films now.
