Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman Targeted as Captain Marvel Writers

Captain Marvel Writers

Marvel Studios has a pretty interesting pair of scribes in talks to team up for their 2018 release Captain Marvel. According to the The Hollywood Reporter, Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) are in talks to join forces to script the big screen adventures of Carol Danvers.

In the Marvel Comics 616 continuity, Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s “Marvel Super-Heroes” #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed  into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.

Little is known regarding Marvel’s specific plans for Captain Marvel outside of the fact that the film will feature the Danvers version of the character. It was confirmed over the weekend that a Captain Marvel cameo was, at one point, part of the script for Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained that the decision was ultimately made not to rush her appearance. As such, no actress has currently been cast in the lead and no director has yet been announced.

Captain Marvel hits the big screen November 2, 2018.
