Yesterday, Marvel revealed that the directors of Captain Marvel are none other than Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, prompting people around the world to say… “Who?”
This isn’t the first time that the media giant has gone from left field with their choices, hiring directors famous inside the world of independent film but not much farther than that. After all, this is the company that made James Gunn, a man who once made $150 for writing a Troma movie, a household name. This is the studio that allowed the brothers who directed Welcome to Collinwood to make the next logical step and go on to Captain America: Civil War. Through Marvel, anything is possible, and Boden and Fleck have a really solid history of crafting intense, character-driven movies…and even directing a few future Marvel superheroes along the way.
Let’s take a look back through their filmography.
