Captain Marvel, the first solo female superhero movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), performed above the expectations by exceeding the $ 1 billion threshold at the box office. According to information revealed today, the highly anticipated sequel will be released in 2022.
Marvel fans are curious about the fate of Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, who played a big role in the fight against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame after his solo movie, which grossed $ 1.1 billion. The information provided by The Hollywood Reporter indicates that we will see the character played by Oscar actress Brie Larson on the screen again in a few years.
According to the news, Marvel Studios will entrust the script of Captain Marvel 2 to the author of the Disney + series WandaVision, Megan McDonnell. The year 2022 is shown as the time when the movie will be released. The studio is looking for a new director because Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who directed the first movie, are unlikely to return to the project. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige’s mind is to entrust Captain Marvel once again to a female director.

In the meantime, let’s say that the marriage between Boden and Fleck and Marvel is not completely over.
