The Marvel Cinematic Universe is set to grow even further with the release of 2019's live-action Captain Marvel movie.

The team's output doesn't necessarily scream superhero film pedigree, but perhaps that's a good thing.

Brie will play the titular character in Marvel Studios' first female-centric superhero film.

It's been well-documented that Marvel Studios had been thoroughly vetting a number of candidates over the past few months, but they were reluctant to make a final call on who should take the helm until they felt the script was in the right place.

Eight months after a report that the contenders to direct the upcoming Captain Marvel movie had been narrowed down to three, the film officially has not one, but two directors.

Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as the lead; it's being written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman, who previously scripted Pixar's Inside Out.

Based on the Marvel comic books created by Gene Colan and Roy Thomas, CAPTAIN MARVEL follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident.

The decision to hire the duo goes in hand with Marvel's history of making left field choices when it comes to choosing its directors.

Boden and Fleck come from the world of movies such as Half Nelson and Mississippi Grind, but have also worked in TV on shows including Billions. Subsequently, she gains powers such as flight, enhanced strength, damage resistance and the ability to absorb and re-channel energy. On the page, the Captain's adjacent identity, Ms. Marvel, now belongs to Pakistani-American teenager Kamala Khan. Let us know by giving it your own user anticipation rating below.
