The Farewell director Lulu Wang has revealed that she was approached by Marvel Studios to direct a film.
One of 2019’s most critically-acclaimed was Lulu Wang’s The Farewell, which won lead star Awkwafina a Best Actress award at the Golden Globes. Since The Farewell’s success, Lulu Wang has enjoyed much acclaim and exposure for her poignant work that tells the tale of a Chinese family. Many believe that Lulu Wang’s The Farewell was snubbed at this year’s Oscars, but she seems to be alright in Marvel Studios’ books.
Whilst participating in The Hollywood Reporter’s annual directors roundtable, host Stephen Galloway asked who in the roundtable had been asked to direct a film by Marvel Studios. The Farewell director Lulu Wang raised her hand and stated that she has had conversation with Marvel Studios. Lulu Wang also stated that she wasn’t sure if she was supposed to reveal that information.
Apart from simply acknowledging conversation with Marvel Studios, Lulu Wang didn’t mention any details as to the project Marvel Studios approached her for. The Farewell director has a knack for showcasing a flurry of powerful emotions and female empowerment, so it’s likely that she may have been approached for Black Widow. However, there’s also the Captain Marvel sequel which would be a perfect for The Farewell director’s talents. Now that Lulu Wang’s film won’t be participating in the Oscars, she has the opportunity to forgo the expected promotion time and instead work on forging a relationship with Marvel Studios, who are always on the lookout for talented directors.
