This rumor makes zero sense to me. I don’t want to see Brie Larson removed as Captain Marvel. This makes no sense.
Work officially began on Captain Marvel 2 on January 22, 2020 when Disney announced they’d hired Megan McDonnell to write the sequel script. McDonnell previously worked on writing the Disney+ series WandaVision, and clearly Disney was happy with her work.
Megan McDonnell did not, however, work on the first Captain Marvel. The first Captain Marvel movie was written by the movie’s directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck along with Geneve Robertson-Dworet. None of that original creative team will be involved in Captain Marvel 2.
Candyman reboot director Nia DaCosta has been tapped to fill the directing duties for the upcoming Captain Marvel 2. The first film, Captain Marvel, was directed by the pair of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and saw the movie pull in a worldwide box office of $1.13 billion. Those are some pretty big shoes for DaCosta to fill, but from all accounts, she can fill them.
