Captain Marvel 2 Lands Its Director In Nia Dacosta

Some big Marvel news finally as Captain Marvel 2 lands its director in Nia Dacosta. Dacosta’s next project and only her second directorial gig will be the upcoming Candyman reboot. Captain Marvel 2 is scheduled for release on July 8, 2022. Plenty of time for Dacosta to finish up on Candyman and get to work on her debut MCU entry. Captain Marvel 2 will use a script from Megan McDonnell, a story editor on the Disney+ WandaVision show.

The report comes from Deadline, but since that initial report broke later yesterday, it seems very official. Other artists and directors have already taken to social media to congratulate Dacosta on her new job. This appointment is very in line with how Marvel Studios like to work. Dacosta is certainly an inexperienced director, especially with something on the MCU level. However, that’s hardly new, Marvel likes to grab new upcoming directors and support them in learning the ropes of a blockbuster production, whilst enabling their own vision.

Captain Marvel 2 lands its director in Nia Dacosta

One only has to look at some of the MCU directors to see what I mean. The Russo Brothers were working on Community when they were first poached to direct The Winter Soldier. By the end of their time with Marvel, the Russos were directing the biggest movie ever made. As for Captain Marvel 2 itself, we know almost nothing. There were some rumors recently that Captain Marvel 2 could act like an Avengers 4.5, in the same way Civil War was like Avengers 2.5. Though there is nothing concrete on that front, especially this far out.

I do think an ensemble movie with Brie Larson’s Danvers front and center could really work for Captain Marvel 2. Danvers was like a cool cameo in Avengers: Endgame rather than being a main player and it’s definitely time for her to step up as being a central pin of the new Avengers team. Let’s hope Dacosta is the perfect person to take Carol Danvers forward in Captain Marvel 2. I was not a huge fan of Captain Marvel, there were good moments, but overall the flow of the acts felt off somehow to me? The glimpses of Carol we got in Avengers: Endgame, which Larson actually shot before Captain Marvel were better for me. So, I guess I’m happy with the change of director this time around. Though that remains to be seen.
