On Tuesday it was reported by Variety that Marvel Studios has selected the duo of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct the Captain Marvel film which will star Brie Larson.
Boden and Fleck were selected from a group that included the likes of Jennifer Kent, Jennifer Yuh, Niki Caro among others.
The directing team of Boden and Fleck are best known for their films Mississippi Grind, and Half Nelson both of which Nick Potter tells me are “very good”.
Boden and Fleck were recently in the running to direct the 2012 Guardians of the Galaxy though that gig was eventually given to James Gunn who managed to turn that project into a mild box-office success.
Captain Marvel is scheduled to be released early in 2019.
