Captain Marvel 2 lands director Nia DaCosta

DaCosta with a different Marvel heroine.

Adding another director to their eclectic, ever-growing stable, Marvel has attached Little Woods and Candyman remake director Nia DaCosta for their sequel to Captain Marvel. WandaVision story editor Megan McDonnell has written the script, and the film is—ever more tentatively—scheduled for a July 8, 2022 release.

We’ll supposedly get a look at DaCosta’s genre chops when Candyman arrives in October, but again, who knows if that will happen. All movie news is hypothetical when your last theatrical experience involved a speedy hedgehog.
