THE BABADOOK Director Jennifer Kent Among The Contenders To Direct CAPTAIN MARVEL

THE BABADOOK Director Jennifer Kent Among The Contenders To Direct CAPTAIN MARVEL

Following the news that Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island) looks set to land the role of Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, two names have emerged as being in the running to take the helm of the movie...

Mentioned in The Hollywood Reporter's piece on Brie Larson being the frontrunner to play Captain Marvel (you can read more about that by clicking here) are two of the female directors currently being eyed to take the helm of the Phase 3 movie. We've heard a lot of rumours about who will take charge of this one, including a rather silly claim that the star and director would have the same first name.

The trade however reveals that, "names like Niki Caro (Whale Rider, McFarland, USA) and Jennifer Kent (The Babadook) surfacing as contenders, according to sources." It definitely appears as if Marvel is thinking out of the box for Captain Marvel then, and sticking to their guns when it comes to hiring a female director to helm their first female led superhero blockbuster.
