With production starting to pick up again for Marvel movies and TV series, Marvel Studios is looking forward to the 2022 movies as the ones coming next year are pretty well set. First up seems to be Captain Marvel 2, which now has a director.

According to Deadline, Candyman reboot director Nia DaCosta will direct Captain Marvel 2. The trade says Marvel met with several people about the job, including some over the weekend, but DaCosta won the directing job for the sequel.

There’s still no official word about what Captain Marvel 2 is about, but it’s rumored to set the stage for the next Avengers movie much like Captain America: Civil War did back in 2016.
