The sequel to Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is taking a step ahead at Marvel Studios with the hiring of filmmaker Nia DaCosta.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the director is all set to helm the project with a script from Megan McDonnell, who is presently a writer on the upcoming Disney Plus Marvel series WandaVision.

DaCosta had made a promising debut with her 2018 feature Little Woods, starring Tessa Thompson, and is currently making waves with her upcoming supernatural slasher film Candyman.

She has taken over for Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who directed the first movie to massive box office success in 2019.

DaCosta will be the first Black woman to direct a Marvel Studios film. She is only the fourth woman, after Boden, Cate Shortland (Black Widow) and Chloe Zhao (Eternals), to take on the directing position at the studio. Larson will reprise her superhero character of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in the sequel. In Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers was in a human form who becomes involved in the war between two alien races, the Kree and shape-shifting Skrulls.

Surviving an explosion tied to an alien engine got her incredible power, turning her into Captain Marvel and making her one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The upcoming film also featured Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Annette Bening, Gemma Chan and Lashana Lynch.

Captain Marvel 2 has a July 8, 2022 release date from Marvel Studios.
