Wonder Woman may have already hit theaters, but there’s still a solid year and a half before Marvel Studios will have their own female-led standalone superhero film hit theaters (not including next year’s Ant-Man and the Wasp). All the info regarding 2019’s Captain Marvel has seemed promising. From what we know, the film is set in the ‘90s, and will have a young Nick Fury present and accounted for.
That being said, the movie still has a solid seven or so months until it’ll need to shoot, and with that in mind, there’s a lot of work still to do, including polish that script. Marvel Studios original hired Inside Out’s Meg LeFauve and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Nicole Perlman to write the first draft of the feature, but with LeFauve leaving to co-direct the Disney Animation flick Gigantic, they had to have someone else fill her shoes.
Marvel has turned to Geneva Robertson-Dworet to continue on with scriptwriting duties. While she’s no household name, she has a few big ones coming up, including the Dungeons & Dragons movie, the Tomb Raider film with Alicia Vikander, and Gotham City Sirens. These are big movies, and the fact that she’s now moving over to Disney for this one is promising of the work she’s done thus far.
It’s unclear if she’ll be continuing the process with Nicole Perlman, but if Marvel is looking for a fresh take on the initial script, it’d make sense if she continued on by herself. It’s also unclear if this will be a page one rewrite or if it will be her working with the draft written up beforehand. Given that Roberston-Dworet has yet to have any of her scripts produced, it’s difficult to gauge whether or not this is a good move, but given the number of big movies she’s attached to, we think it makes sense to be optimistic. Plus, with a draft under their belt, and a solid seven or so months to get it where it needs to be, we think they’re on a good pace to put out a solid flick.
Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
