Report: Captain Marvel 2 Will Be Directed By Candyman's Nia DaCosta


Captain Marvel 2 is in the works, and a new report suggests that a director has been found. Deadline is reporting that Nia DaCosta, the director behind the Jordan Peele-produced Candyman movie coming out later this year, is attached to direct the Marvel movie.

Disney and Marvel provided the outlet with no comment, so take this with a grain of salt for now, but it seems likely. DaCosta has only directed one feature before Candyman, an indie picture called Little Woods, which reviewed well. Along with directing, she also wrote the screenplay for Candyman, which is looking terrifying.

DaCosta, who is currently 30 years old, will likely tie with Ryan Coogler (who released Black Panther at 32) as the youngest Marvel movie director when the film premieres.

The first Marvel movie to be directed entirely by a woman will be Black Widow, directed by Cate Shortland. 2021’s The Eternals will be directed by Chloe Zhao. Captain Marvel was the first Marvel film to focus primarily on a female superhero.

It was previously reported that WandaVision writer Megan McDonnell was working on a script. The first Captain Marvel film was written and directed by team Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Captain Marvel 2 is currently planned for a 2022 release, but with the COVID-19 pandemic shifting schedules around, that could change.
