Disney and Marvel Studios Begin Production for ‘Captain Marvel 2‘. Marvel Fans were ecstatic to hear Captain Marvel would be getting a sequel after the raging success of the film in 2019. The film was one of 7 films by The Walt Disney Company released in 2019 to reach over $1 Billion at the global box office. Initially, the news had been shared during San Diego Comic Con with our predictions still expecting to see a 2022 projected release date for the sequel.
Variety broke the news that production is officially in the works with an exclusive report from Disney and Marvel, saying the studio’s are currently looking to sign on WandaVision writer, Megan McDonnell, to pen the project. The Captain Marvel sequel will likely take place in Phase 5 of the MCU and will see the return of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.
Likely, Captain Marvel 2 will join other sequels such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Black Panther 2 in Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is currently unknown if the character Monica Rambeau will make an appearance in the film, but she is highly likely to appear, especially since her now adult character is expected to appear in the Marvel and Disney+ series, WandaVision. Likely this is a contributing factor to Marvel and Disney wanting Megan McDonnell to pen the script for the film.
We can’t wait to see Captain Marvel’s return to the MCU after Avengers: Endgame, and are excited for the adventure that is in store!
