Things are moving forward with Marvel’s first upcoming female led superhero film, Captain Marvel, as the project just recently revealed its directing duo for the movie. Mississippi Grind directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck got hired to helm the film which will star Brie Larson as the iconic Carol Danvers.
With the directing duo now set to helm the project, when will Captain Marvel start filming? According to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, if everything goes as planned, the movie will start rolling the cameras in February 2018.
“Assuming everything stays on schedule, we start filming … Captain Marvel in February.”
In other news, concept art of Larson’s costume was shown to press during a visit to Marvel Studios and it was described like this:
“There were only three Captain Marvel images up on the wall, but they packed quite a punch. The first two pieces of concept art featured Brie Larson in her costume, which appears to draw heavy inspiration from her classic comics suit. Though the design kept Captain Marvel’s signature eight-pointed star emblem square on the chest, its look and feel were more akin to Ant Man’s suit than Iron Man’s. Like a form-fitting armor, her suit is less spandex and more military grade, covering her whole body. Her iconic sash is more of a utility belt, favoring function over form. In the concept art she stands tall, staring off into the distance, looking hopeful but tough.”
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, is set to open in theaters on March 8, 2019.
