Doctor Strange was the most recent Marvel film to hit theatres. Next year, we’ve got Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in May, Spider-Man: Homecoming in July, then Thor: Ragnarok in November.

And somewhere in all of that, we’ll start hearing more and more details about one of Marvel’s most anticipated films, Captain Marvel. We already know that Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve are working on the script that will star Brie Larson in the titular role of Carol Danvers. But, beyond that, we don’t know much.


But, as of today, due to a tweet from Variety reporter Justin Kroll, we at least know that the script is in its final stages and that directors will soon be able to start really playing with it and meeting with Marvel.

What this means is that the script as written by the writers has gone through multiple drafts and Marvel Studios is now doing all of their work on it before getting it into the hands of the directors on their short list. These directors will then play with the script to create presentations to pitch their individual vision for the film to the studio execs, who will have to choose a director sometime next year in order to meet the 2019 release date.

Filmmaking is all about playing the long game.

We know that Marvel has been very adamant about bringing a female director in for this film, with Rebecca Thomas, Leslie Linka Glatter, Lorene Scafaria and Niko Caro all having been mentioned as the top contenders in the past.
