Working with DaCosta on the film will be writer Megan McDonnell, who is also the writer for Disney+ Marvel series WandaVision. The sequel will include its leading lady, Brie Larson, as she returns to her role as Captain Marvel: a fighter pilot turned superhero.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck co-directed the first film, but have now passed the torch to DaCosta to direct the 90s-set film. After Captain Marvel debuted in March of 2019, the film went on to earn a whopping $1.1 billion globally at the box office which led into the success of Avengers: Endgame. DaCosta's past credits include Little Woods, starring Tessa Thompson. Her film, Candyman, which she co-wrote with Academy-award winner Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld, was supposed to be released in theaters on June 12, but has been delayed to October 16 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Captain Marvel 2 is set to be released July 8, 2022. In the meantime, you can watch Captain Marvel on Disney+ now!
