We’ve known for almost a year that Brie Larson will play Captain Marvel on the big screen, but it was announced just yesterday that Marvel Studios has found two directors to take on the major motion picture.
Marvel has hired Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct the upcoming tentpole film for the studio.
Execs met with the two numerous times and the pair impressed the studio time and time again with their vision for the heroine. Boden and Fleck have experience in both the TV and film world, which Marvel considers a strength.
Best known for their character-driven dramas like Ryan Gosling’s “Half Nelson” (2006) and Ryan Reynolds’ “Mississippi Grind” (2015), Boden and Fleck also directed episodes for such popular TV series as Showtime’s “The Affair” and “Billions.”
Captain Marvel is scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 8, 2019 – providing there aren’t delays that push the film back even further.
