We’ve currently yet to get any official news regarding the team that will bring Captain Marvel to life on the big screen other than screenwriters Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. There’s been plenty of names tossed around regarding a potential director, which Marvel is likely after before signing an actress for the lead, and recently Meadowland director Reed Morano threw her name into the mix for the film with Olivia Wilde as a potential lead. While speaking with MCU Exchange, the director commented on what heavily sparked her interest in the project.
Moran admitted that she’s not a comic geek and that she knows what she does mainly from “watching superhero movies all my life” before going on to comment on what attracts her to this genre of film.
When the director was asked about what she would bring to the project, Morano commented that she believes female comic book characters are often diminished.
While Reed Morano may not have much directing experience under her belt, that hasn’t stopped Marvel Studios before. Just recently they snagged up Jon Watts for their upcoming Spider-Man reboot after his first film debuted at Sundance. Could we see them sit down with Morano? Would you be interested in that after reading her comments? Let us know in the section below.
