Marvel is in negotiations with Guardians of the Galaxy writer Nicole Perlman and Inside Out scribe Meg LeFauve to write their Phase Three adventure Captain Marvel. The studio still does not have an actress lined up to play the title character, or a director lined up, but the comic book adaptation already has a November 2, 2018 release date in place. Ironically, producer Kevin Feige revealed during the press day for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron that they are "very close" to finding the writers for Captain Marvel, while debunking rumors that the character would pop up in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
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. The character is given superhuman strength and the ability to fly after her DNA was infused with a Kree alien. It isn't known how close the studio will stick to the original comic book portrayal for this adaptation.
Nicole Perlman received a story credit on Guardians of the Galaxy, which she developed within Marvel's writer's program. Captain Marvel will be Meg LeFauve's first entry into the comic book world. She wrote the screenplay for The Dangerous Lives Of Altar Boys and the upcoming Pixar animated comedy Inside Out. We'll keep you posted with any more updates on Captain Marvel and the rest of Marvel's Phase Three slate as soon as we have more information.
