While we should expect to hear this news soon as Kevin Feige earlier revealed that they would be making an announcement soon, we might have an idea who could be directing Marvel’s upcoming Captain Marvel film. Screen Geek was tipped off that the film’s screenwriter Nicole Perlman recently followed independent filmmaker Emily Carmichael.
While this doesn’t necessarily mean anything other than her possibly being a fan of her work, there is something interesting that is definitely worth additionally noting.A few weeks ago, the director posted an image to Instagram a few weeks with the caption “on my way to a Disney meeting” which has since been changed. Right now, this is all circumstantional evidence but both bits are very interestingly timed.
Recently The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider hinted that we could see the director of the upcoming film feature the same name as the film’s lead. If Carmichel ends up being the film’s director, could this also indicate that we might also see fan-favorite Emily Blunt as Carol Danvers in the MCU? This is all speculation at the moment but there’s some very interesting things here. Let us know what you think about these possibilities in the comments section below.
