Captain Marvel 2 Lands Candyman’s Director Nia DaCosta On The Director’s Chair

Captain Marvel 2 dropped one of the biggest bombs and it’s a great surprise for all. Captain Marvel 2 finally has a director and it is Nia DaCosta. Nia DaCosta replaces Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the two magnificent duo who directed the success of Captain Marvel 1. Nia DaCosta is the fourth woman and first black woman in history to direct a Marvel Comic Universe movie. 

Among the entire Black Lives Matter movement, Marvel’s initiative to finally recognize women of color comes as a welcomed move. Nia will be joined by Megan McDonnell, the scriptwriter of the movie and editor of Marvel’s upcoming series, ‘WandaVision’.

Brie Larson will reprise her role as the first Marvel superhero – Captain Marvel. DaCosta has a lot of responsibilities on her shoulders. Boden and Ryan contributed vastly in making Captain Marvel 1 one of the biggest movies of MCU. DaCosta now has huge shoes to fill but we are sure she’ll bring her own A-Heels to the game!

The Coveted Director’s Chair

There was a humungous competition for the director’s chair for Captain Marvel 2. Captain Marvel is one of the highest-grossing movies of MCU and hence, the expectation for Captain Marvel 2 is sky-high. Interestingly, we do not know whether Nia DaCosta was the first choice for the director’s seat. But, we sure know that there were other considerations as well.

The main competition was between Olivia Wilde and Jamie Babbit apart from DaCosta. It was officially announced in January 2020 that Boden and Fleck will not be returning for Captain Marvel 2. Though it came as shock to many but the makers were clear from the start that they want a woman director for the film. Boden and Fleck did not leave on any bitter terms and that was clear as they were offered ‘WandaVision’ to direct.

Olivia Wilde is a better-known actress than a director. However, her second film ‘Booksmart’ got her into the radar of promising directors. Olivia has worked way too hard for the industry to take her seriously as a filmmaker and it is paying off. Jamie Babbit, on the other hand, is a renowned filmmaker. Her recent hit –‘Russian Doll’, has garnered way too much appreciation to be ignored.

However, MCU surprised everyone (positively) and landed Nia DaCosta as the final director for the movie. Nia DaCosta came into the eyes of critics with her debut, ‘Little Woods’.

Little Woods is a crime drama starring Lily James and Tessa Thompson. Their lives are altered when they learn that now, they have to pay the mortgage as their mother is dead. The movie received critical acclamation and saw DaCosta as a promising director. The audience had positive remarks for the movie and called it one of the most underrated movies of 2018.

According to DaCosta, the movie is a representation of black and white violence and their repercussions.
