Nicole Perlman & Meg LeFauve will unite to write Marvel's Captain Marvel, in theaters November 2, 2018, bringing Carol Danvers to the big screen in her first solo cinematic adventure. The studio's official confirmation comes exactly one week after we first reported that both writers were in talks to script this Phase Three adventure. The project doesn't have a director at this time, but we reported in March that the studio is seeking a female, with recent rumors suggesting that Angelina Jolie may be a contender for the gig.
Fans will recognize Perlman as the co-writer of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, last year's smash hit introducing audiences to Star-Lord and his crew, while LeFauve most recently co-wrote Disney Pixar's next original film Inside Out, which will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May before heading to theaters June 19. Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, first debuted in 1968's "Marvel Super-Heroes" #13. She was a U.S. Air Force security chief who is transformed into Captain Marvel following an explosion that involved Kree technology.
Among Captain Marvel's powers are superhuman strength and the ability to fly after her DNA was infused with a Kree alien. It remains to be seen how closely Marvel Studios will stick to the comic book portrayal of Carol Danvers for this feature film, or who will end up portraying her. Since we still have three and a half years before Captain Marvel hits theaters, we'll be sure to keep you posted on all the latest developments.
