We knew it was coming as Kevin Feige named Captain Marvel 2 in Hall H last July at SDCC, but now the movie has a writer and a target release date.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel has hired their WandaVision writer Megan McDonnell to write the present-day set Captain Marvel 2 and Marvel is currently searching for a director as Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck might be doing a Disney+ series.
They also say that Marvel is eyeing a 2022 release. So far the only 2022 movie officially announced is Black Panther 2 for May 6th. Meaning that Captain Marvel 2 could fall in the February, July, or October dates.
Also expected in 2022 is the third Ant-Man and possibly the third Deadpool, and if you couple those with Black Panther and Captain Marvel; it’d make that year pretty big for Marvel Studios.
