Black Panther and Captain Marvel directors

Even though Marvel Studios may not be bringing a panel to Hall H for the San Diego Comic-Con in a couple of weeks, that doesn’t mean they won’t have some big news to reveal this summer.

In addition to Ant-Man expanding the Marvel cinematic universe (don’t forget that Paul Rudd has a role in Captain America: Civil War, too), Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige has confirmed they’re planning to have directors locked down for Black Panther and Captain Marvel very soon, and he even confirmed one of the names in the running for one of those jobs.

Captain Marvel screenwriters

UPDATE: Marvel has confirmed this report. Read the official press release below.

We just talked about the fact that Captain Marvel didn’t make an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, in part because the character isn’t cast or quite defined yet, and over the weekend we reported that the Captain Marvel screenwriters would be announced soon. Now we’ve got the names Marvel is trying to lock in, and they make an interesting new team: Nicole Perlman, who wrote the draft of Guardians of the Galaxy that got that movie on track, and Meg LeFauve, who co-wrote Pixar’s Inside Out.

Angelina Jolie directing Unbroken

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel recently picked up two screenwriters, Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve, but it still needs a few more pieces before cameras can roll. Like a director. And rumor has it Angelina Jolie could be the one to get that gig. That is, if Warner Bros. doesn’t snap her up for Wonder Woman first.

Update: Just a few minutes after we ran this post, news broke that Patty Jenkins had been set to helm Wonder Woman. So we can rule Jolie out of the running for that one, at least. Original story follows.

This is an unconfirmed rumor but, if it’s true, it might be a spoiler for the Marvel Cinematic Universe 2015 movies. Beware and read more below. Read More »
