Yes, you read that headline correctly. Directors. As in, plural.
With their fingers ever on the pulse of Hollywood, THR is reporting that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) will be sitting together in the director’s chair for Marvel’s first solo female-led film.
The script comes courtesy of Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), so you know there will be both humor and heart.
The directing duo seems like the perfect fit for Marvel and their titular Captain, as they land the female talent behind the camera they were looking for, while also scoring another directing duo, since the Russos have worked out so well for them so far.
Captain Marvel comes to theaters March 8, 2019.
