Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” has found the perfect duo to fly Carol Danvers to the big screen in 2019!

The directing pair Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have signed on to direct the film, starring Oscar-winner Brie Larson. Kevin Feige will produce the film, written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. Marvel Studios’ Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz serve as Executive Producers alongside Stan Lee.

Boden and Fleck most recently wrote and directed “Mississippi Grind,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn. Both have also directed and written “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” (starring Emma Roberts and Zach Galifianakis), “Sugar,” and worked together on the critically-acclaimed “Half Nelson” starring Ryan Gosling.

Carol Danvers has a very nuanced, powerful story, so Marvel took time selecting the final directing duo. But ultimately Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s diverse body of work and ability and focus on character made the choice a winning one. Each of their films exhibit nuanced, fascinating performances and a deeply-felt sense of character, all which will fuel the pairs passion around telling Carol Danvers’ Story.
