Marvel Eyeing SELMA Director Ava DuVernay To Helm BLACK PANTHER, Possibly CAPTAIN MARVEL

The trades are reporting that Selma director Ava DuVernay is being eyed to helm one of Marvel's upcoming diverse superhero movies. While it appears as if it's for Black Panther, it sounds possible that the Golden Globe nominated filmmaker might tackle Captain Marvel. Read on for details...

According to The Wrap, Marvel are eyeing Ava DuVernay to direct one of their upcoming diverse superhero movies. Those are obviously Black Panther and Captain Marvel, and insiders indicate that it's the former which is currently the most likely possibility. That's set to be released in 2018, a little sooner than Carol Danvers' big screen debut, possibly explaining why Kevin Feige is looking to land the Selma director. She also has a credit for "promotional services" on Spider-Man 2.

They add that there is mutual interest on both sides, but Marvel is still considering other filmmakers. A woman has yet to direct a superhero movie, and the fact that DuVernay is both non-white and non-male would earn some serious PR points for them. That aside though, DuVernay is a great director who received almost unanimous critical acclaim for her work on Selma. Thoughts?
