Earlier this week we reported that up-and-coming superstar writer (no kidding, she has like five huge movies coming up) Geneva Robertson-Dworet would be picking up writing duties on the Captain Marvel movie. However, those who have been following the progress of this movie know that she isn’t the first writer to take a swing at the movie.

Prior to her, Inside Out’s Meg LeFauvre and Guardians of the Galaxy’s Nicole Perlman did a draft. While rewrites are incredibly common in Hollywood, the initial report from Deadline failed to mention whether or not this would simply be a polish of the existing script, or a full-on, page one rewrite of the script. With seven months or so left until production, it could have been either/or for all we knew.

However, Nicole Perlman herself recently took to Twitter to clarify the situation. She first went on to wish Roberston-Dworet the best of luck.


She then confirmed that Robertson-Dworet would be proceeding forward by herself on the script.

Then, when asked if it would be a page one rewrite, Perlman assured that a lot of her ideas and such would still be present and accounted for.

Again, it’s important to reiterate that rewrites are incredibly common in the business. If you had a chance to look at the credits of Spider-Man: Homecoming, you may have noticed that they had six writers credited to the screenplay. In short, we have nothing to worry about — at least not yet.
