The 'Mississippi Grind' directors are going to sit at the helm for Marvel's first female superhero movie starring Brie Larson.
The search for "Captain Marvel" director is over. According to Variety, "Mississippi Grind" helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are tapped to sit behind the lens for Marvel's first female-centric superhero movie.
The upcoming film is going to have Brie Larson as the female lead Carol Danvers. The actress was signed on to join Marvel Cinematic Universe for the coveted role fresh off her Oscar win for her role in the movie "Room".
"With Captain Marvel, she is as powerful a character as we've ever put in a movie," producer Kevin Feige said. "Her powers are off the charts, and when she's introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we've ever had."
The comic book adaptation is scheduled to arrive across United States on March 8, 2019.
