Higher, Further, Faster, Captain Marvel 2 is in the works and could be released in 2022.
The Hollywood Reporter announced that Megan McDonnell (WandaVision) will serve as screenwriter for this second movie. It also seems like Marvel is looking for a female director since Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck who co-wrote and co-directed the first movie will not be returning behind the camera for the second opus. However, The Hollywood Reporter said that the two filmmakers should still be part of the Marvel family since they are reportedly in talk to direct a new original series for the streaming platform Disney+, launched in November 2019.
If the first movie was set in the 1990’s, Captain Marvel 2 should be set in the present day. Marvel has yet to confirm on the potential plot timeline. No information had been given about the Captain Marvel sequel since Kevin Feige, president of the Marvel Studios teased the return of Carole Danvers at the San Diego Comic Con in 2019. He said “We didn’t even have time to talk about Captain Marvel 2, by the way.” Captain Marvel 2 will be part of the phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, along with Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Blade, and Avengers 5.
With more than $1 billion worldwide at the box office (making it the highest-grossing female-led superhero movie) the announcement for the release of Captain Marvel 2 was only a matter of time. When promoting the first movie, Kevin Feige stated that “She’s one of the most popular characters in our comics (…) and will be the most powerful character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe” before adding “Captain Marvel is about to take the lead and be at the forefront of the entire Cinematic Universe”. And while we saw what Captain Marvel was capable of in Avengers: Endgame, it sounds like the superhero is not done marveling us.
In the meantime, Marvel is getting ready to launch the Ms.Marvel series on Disney+. Ms Marvel aka Kamala Khan is a teenager from Jersey City, a fan of Captain Marvel and the first Muslim superhero to join the MCU.
