Once again, women are receiving the spotlight when it comes to action-fuelled film in 2020 and beyond. With Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan and the DC universe spotlighting Wonder Woman 1984, it comes as no surprise that the 2019 Marvel blockbuster film, Captain Marvel, will also receive a sequel. Confirmed by Variety overnight, Disney is reportedly in talks for the upcoming development.
The studio is believed to be in final negotiations with Megan McDonnell, a staff writer on Marvel-based series ‘WandaVision’ on the project. Marking the first Marvel film that plays hero to a female origin story, it grossed $1.13 billion USD at the box office last year with Brie Larson leading the role as it told the origin story of the hero after the Earth is caught at the center of a galactic conflict in 1995.
Disney nor Marvel have suggested a release date, however, it will come after the forthcoming release of Black Widow’s first standalone film, starring Scarlett Johansson.
WandaVision is set to drop Disney Plus later this year and will feature Elizabeth Olsen, Kat Dennings and Paul Bettany among other. The series will see a continuity of the Marvel Cinematic universe.
Stay tuned for further developments as they happen.
