Who Is The New Director of Captain Marvel 2?

Nia DaCosta Will Take Lead on Captain Marvel 2 as the First Black Woman to Direct a Marvel Film

LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 01:

Marvel Studios has tapped filmmaker Nia DaCosta to direct Captain Marvel 2, Deadline first reported on Wednesday afternoon. DaCosta — who's the director of the horror film Candyman — is the first Black woman and fourth woman to direct a Marvel Studios picture. DaCosta follows Anna Boden, who directed the first Captain Marvel, Cate Shortland, director of Black Widow, and Chloé Zhao, who directed Eternals. DaCosta first earned major critical acclaim for her directorial debut Little Woods, a thriller starring Lily James and Tessa Thompson.

Captain Marvel 2 is set to drop on July 8, 2022, where we'll be seeing Brie Larson as Carol Danvers again on screens. While the first Captain Marvel movie was directed by Boden and Ryan Fleck, Marvel frequently changes directors for its franchises, as it did for Iron Man and Captain America. There's not much we know yet about the Captain Marvel sequel, but we certainly have a lot of questions we want answers for come next summer.
