Marvel Won't Rush In Naming A 'Captain Marvel' Director

After months of speculation, Brie Larson took the stage at Comic-Con last summer and officially joined the MCU as Captain Marvel, setting in motion Marvel's solo female superhero movie. Well, there hasn't been much actual motion since, other than a shortlist of directors and some news on the film being an origin story. So what's the deal? Relax, Marvel's got this, it's just going to take a while, according to Variety's Justin Kroll...

 This is an important movie for Marvel with a lot riding on it. Taking some extra care to make sure their first female-led movie goes right is a good thing. They don't want the kind of problems Warner Bros. had initially with Wonder Woman.

Captain Marvel opens in 2019 so maybe expect a director announcement this summer at Comic-Con?
