Writers of Guardians of the Galaxy and Inside Out could board Captain Marvel

04.13.2015

While I'm still somewhat surprised that we'll be getting a Captain Marvel film before a Black Widow film, I'm getting more and more excited for Carol Danvers turn on the big-screen in CAPTAIN MARVEL. Marvel announced the film last year during their Phase 3 press conference but beyond several rumours we haven't really been privy to much information on the film. Now THR has given the word that Nicole Perlman, who co-wrote GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and Meg LeFauve, who co-wrote Pixar's INSIDE OUT, are in negotiations write CAPTAIN MARVEL.

LeFauve and Perlman are actually not a writing duo; they both approached Marvel separately with individual takes on the film and each impressed Marvel honcho Kevin Feige so much that he decided to have them join together and turn their ideas into one.

Nicole Perlman has history with Marvel, having joined them back in 2009. During that time she was offered a variety of properties to base a screenplay on; to the surprise of many she chose the one with a talking racoon and spent several years crafting various drafts for what would become GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. When James Gunn came on-board he brought his own contributions to the script and unfortunately there was some animosity between them with Gunn feeling as though not enough of Perlman's draft had survived to justify her co-writer credit. Gunn will write the sequel to GUARDIANS by himself but it's nice to know Marvel is keeping Perlman on-board for other projects.

Earlier today Kevin Feige dropped a couple of details about CAPTAIN MARVEL, including the confirmation that the character had appeared in an early draft of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON but didn't make it any further than that.

The search is still on for the perfect actress to play the part, who do you see at Captain Marvel?

Yeah let's get a known actress who will be bored of the roll after two films. Or she will say "I've done all I wanted to do with the character and need to move on".

There are only 2 choices for Ms Marvel, Jessica Chastain or Emily Blunt.

Didn't really know much about Captain Marvel until I started watching the animated series and did some reading up on her after that. I'm still confused as to whether it's Captain or Ms but nothing else to say other than I found it interesting there's an American Muslim version of Ms Marvel. Between having to fend off over bearing parents who would like her to get an arranged or assisted marriage (made that up - I have no idea if such issues were covered) and taking on super powered bad guys

This new Ms Marvel you're referring to is actually one of the many new 'Inhumans', and the actual Captain Marvel (formerly Ms Marvel) had her power from the 'first' Captain Marvel, a Kree...

Thanks for the info. On the new Ms Marvel, interesting, not only is she a woman (or teenager?), but she's Muslim, living in the US...and she's an inhuman too - some good layers in there for a good writer to exploit. I remember reading she's based NJ - my god, the writers truly know there stuff about the Muslims in the US :o)

Based on Feige's comments, I would guess that the proposed solo Black Widow movie became Avengers: Infinity War Part I. That fits with everything we have been hearing.

Personally I'd like Yvonne Strahovski as she has the stature for it and I'd love to see her break onto the big screen in more film roles. And make no mistake, the first female led Marvel movie will be BIG, so that would be one hell of a way to break into it.

I never really liked the idea of a solo Black Widow character. I think she works better as part of a team, so I could maybe see a Hawkeye/Black Widow film but I really don't think a solo film is a great idea.

But anyway, here's hoping these writers can pull off a Captain Marvel movie!

Why are you surprised, Captain Marvel is a much better character than Black Wodow? Plus Whedon is a sexist and objectives her as a pair tits and a nice ass in leather.

Whedon didn't create the costume- her comic counterpart has almost exclusivley worn black leather body suits since her introduction decades ago.

He also doesn't run the MCU, so he has no real say on BW solo film or or characterization in other films. I don't feel like she's objectified in the Avengers films any more tor less han the men are. I think she was most objectified in IM2, if anything.

Emily Blunt for Captain Marvel. After seeing her kick ass and hold her own in Looper, and Edge of Tomorrow, there is no better appropriate choice then her (in my opinion).

Plus, she was almost Black Widow, and Peggy Carter, so hopefully third time is the charm.

Of all of soloists remarks to comment on, you, Dr. English, felt the need to correct him on his spelling of "then?" Not to mention all the hundreds of way larger mistakes in the articles. One in 3 (or let me type that out since it's below 100 - three) articles have huge mistakes that often make it difficult to decipher what they are trying to say. Many articles clearly weren't even reread once.

And Soloist says a lot of ridiculous stuff. This is what you call him out for? Are you
