‘Captain Marvel’ 2 Officially in Development
Variety.com: Disney has officially launched the development of a “Captain Marvel” sequel.
The studio is in final negotiations with Megan McDonnell, a staff writer on Marvel-based series “WandaVision” on the project. The 2019 blockbuster “Captain Marvel” starred Brie Larson as Carol Danvers and grossed $1.13 billion worldwide.
Disney and Marvel have not yet set a release date or announced a title for the “Captain Marvel” sequel.
“Captain Marvel” centered on Danvers becoming the vastly powerful Captain Marvel after the Earth is caught at the center of a galactic conflict in 1995. The cast included Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. The movie was written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
It was also Marvel’s first female-centric movie. Larson also appeared as Captain Marvel in 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame.”
