Another Potential CAPTAIN MARVEL Director Surfaces

Another Potential CAPTAIN MARVEL Director Surfaces

It was previously reported that the competition to direct Captain Marvel was down to three but a fourth name has now surfaced. Will Kevin Feige and co. pick someone from the shortlist or surprise fans?

According to Mashable's Jeff Sneider, there's another contender to help Captain Marvel for Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios.  Rebecca Thomas, best known for directing 2012's Electrick Children, a surreal indie drama about, "a young Mormon girl living in an isolated compound who listens to music for the first time and believes she's become pregnant and must find the father of her miracle baby."  

Thomas seems to be a coveted up-and-comer as she's also attached to Universal's live-action Little Mermaid film starring Chloë Grace Moretz.

Previously announced contenders for the Captain Marvel directing gig include Niki Caro (Whale Rider), Lesli Linka Glatter (Ray Donovan) and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World).  However, we should all remember that Marvel has frequently hired actors and directors that never emerged on anyone's shortlist.  Without a finished screenplay and the focus presently on Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel isn't expected to hire a director before the end of the year.

Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) are currently working on the script for Marvel's first solo super heroine film which will star Brie Larson.
