WANDAVISION Writer in Talks For CAPTAIN MARVEL 2, Which Will Take Place in Present Day

CAPTAIN MARVEL made over $1 billion worldwide so a sequel is inevitable.

But the question is... when?

According to THR, CAPTAIN MARVEL 2 is targeting a 2022 release with Marvel Studios' Disney+ series WANDAVISION writer Megan McDonnell in talks to write it. Directors of the first film, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, will reportedly not return. THR writes:

"A sequel to Marvel's billion-dollar-grossing Captain Marvel is officially in the works.

"The company has tapped rising scribe Megan McDonnell, a staff writer on the Marvel-based series WandaVision, to pen a script for a follow-up to the 2019 pic that starred Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson. McDonnell is in final negotiations to seal her deal.

"Sources say that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who co-wrote and directed the initial film hit, will not return to helm the sequel but are in talks to remain in the Marvel Universe and direct a possible Disney+ series. Marvel is hoping to find a female filmmaker for Captain Marvel 2 and is eyeing a potential 2022 release.

"Details of any high-flying take were not revealed, but the new story will move the setting from the 1990s of the original movie to the present day."

If CAPTAIN MARVEL 2 is set to release in 2022, then it will join BLACK PANTHER 2 which has a release date set for May 5, 2022.
