‘Captain Marvel 2’ Taps ‘WandaVision’ Writer Megan McDonnell; Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck Will Not Return to Direct

Jan 22, 2020

‘Captain Marvel 2’ is finally getting some traction, as writer Megan McDonnell is in final talks to pen the screenplay. She is both a staff editor and story editor on the upcoming ‘WandaVision’ Disney+ series, premiering later this year.

Meanwhile, the first film’s directors Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck will not return to helm the sequel. However, they are not leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe for good. The duo are in talks to direct a “possible” Disney+ series.

Now, the specific wording of “possible” from The Hollywood Reporter suggests a series that has not been announced, so it may not be ‘She-Hulk.’ Therefore, what else could it be? Well, back in August last year, we at The GWW reported that a ‘Miss America’ Disney series is in the works. Perhaps this is the series Boden and Fleck are being courted to direct.

Moreover, here is a morsel of info regarding the premise:

“The new story will move the setting from the 1990s of the original movie to the present day.”

Further, Marvel Studios is looking for a female filmmaker to direct ‘Captain Marvel 2.’ No word on who could be up for the gig.

THR also suggests a 2022 release is possible, but I would not put too much stock in that particular tidbit. With the forthcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,’ I think that could land the July 29, 2022 date instead of ‘Captain Marvel 2.’
