This just in: Marvel may have found its Captain Marvel director, or should I say directors. Variety is reporting that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have been chosen to direct Captain Marvel. Boden and Fleck are best known for writing and directing the 2015 Drama Mississippi Grind Starring Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds, but outside of that the pair aren’t known for much. Not that this should be worrying to anyone. Marvel has a gift for picking out talented directors that aren’t particularly well known and making them into cinematic powerhouses. They did it with the Russo brothers, they did it with James Gunn, and now they’re gonna do it with these two. Now keep in mind Marvel hasn’t yet confirmed this news, so this could be bad info. But I don’t think it is. It’s a bit too random to be fake. But until it’s official, don’t completely take it to the bank.
So thoughts on this choice? Who was your pick for directing Captain Marvel? Talk about it in the comments, and don’t forget to like, share, and follow Sprom for more news on the Captain Marvel directors and other things in the world of movies.
Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters in March 8th, 2019.
