Marvel Studios confirmed Brie Larson for Captain Marvel at SDCC 2016. Since then, several directors have been shortlisted for the movie. However, the hunt is still on with no updates on the starting dates of its production.
It may look like Marvel Studios is struggling in finding the right director for the movie. However, an insider journalist has confirmed that its schedule is going as planned. Furthermore, the studio’s patience could be a sign that the movie is one of their top priorities.
The news came from Variety film reporter Justin Kroll. Kroll is known for sharing comic book movie scoops. He also provided accurate updates on Captain Marvel in the past.
Captain Marvel Script Still in the Works
A fan questioned Kroll on Twitter, asking when Marvel studios will announce or confirm the director for Captain Marvel. “Marvel in no rush, waiting to get a script they are happy with,” Kroll answered. “No need to rush since PANTHER, INFINITY and ANT-MAN come before it.”
Marvel Studios successfully started the productions for Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther simultaneously. The studio is also preparing to promote Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The studio is facing no setbacks and is progressing as planned.
Going by their schedule, the studio has ample amount of time to choose a deserving director. Moreover, it is likely that some versions of the script submitted were rejected as well. Fortunately, Marvel can remain patient and wait for a better script because of its blockbuster line-up.
