Marvel is back in action!
Meg LeFauve, who produced and co-wrote Pixar’s upcoming movie “Inside Out”, and Nicole Perlman, writer of Marvel‘s Guardians of the Galaxy, are in talks to write “Captain Marvel.” The movie is one of Marvel’s key projects as it marks the company’s first female-driven movie.
LeFauve and Perlman are not a writing team, but the studio is putting them together even though both of them pitched different ideas.
The director and titular actress have yet to be announced, but the film is slotted for release on 2nd November 2018.
The film will focus on air force pilot Captain Marvel, also known as Carol Danvers, whose DNA was merged with an alien after an accident. The resulting alteration suffuses her with the super powers of strength, energy project, and even fly to space. In addition, she also served NASA and The Air Force, as well as various incarnations of The Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.
Despite having previously written comedy-drama “The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys,” this will be LeFauve’s first try in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perlman was the scriptwriter for James Gunn’s “Guardians to the Galaxy”.
