Last August, reports began to break that Marvel Studios had recruited Nia DaCosta to direct Captain Marvel 2. The news was finally officially confirmed by Kevin Feige during December’s Disney’s Investor Day presentation. The deal makes DaCosta the youngest director to helm an MCU movie to date.
In her career so far, DaCosta has directed two films. Her first director’s role was 2018’s critically acclaimed Little Woods, which she also wrote. John Peel the hand-picked her for the hotly anticipated Candyman, which has now been delayed until August this year.
In a recent interview on A Little Late With Lilly Singh, lead-actor Brie Larson was asked to share her thoughts about Nia DaCosta involvement in the sequel. Whilst production for Captain Marvel 2 is yet to begin, Larson revealed her excitement to be working with DaCosta in the future.
Later in the interview, Larson was asked about her own experience of stepping into the Marvel universe and if it was a “no-brainer” to play Carol Danvers. Her response can be seen below:
