Kevin Feige Notes Having A Female Director For 'Captain Marvel' Is Paramount

Kevin Feige, you may have heard of him he's the Head of Marvel Studios, has spoken about one of the films coming down the pipeline for Phase Three which is Captain Marvel. He recently was at a special footage presentation for Doctor Strange and has expressed the importance of having a female helmer for the film and more.

"I do think it will be not a requirement to make a great version of Captain Marvel, but it's something we think is important," Feige noted to IGN. "With all of our movies, we want them to be different, we want them to find the new voices. I think the fun thing is we're meeting so many great directors that we'll bring one of them onto Captain Marvel, but we have future things to come [for the others]."

On the topic of having that female vision for the film, Feige said, "It's super important. One of the things that's interesting is there's been a lot of versions of Captain Marvel, there's been a lot of stories of Captain Marvel, and we are now sharing all the source material with the writers who are working on it now, with the filmmakers who we're meeting with and have been for months. Whether they know a lot about the comics or, more likely, the filmmakers we work with don't have to be huge fans, they just have to fall in love with it once they are presented with it. It's amazing to see all of the filmmakers read through it and know, 'Oh, a female's writing it now.' When Kelly Sue DeConnick started on the books, they took on a new thing, and I think that's why, and I think that's important."

He admitted to having a delayed announcement of the director, which was due before the end of summer, with "we're trying to get a little more of the story set before we bring a filmmaker on so we can talk about the story with the filmmaker before we bring them on."

Feige told IGN that, while writers for the film have said the origin of Carol Danvers is similar to that of DC's Green Lantern, the writers have founded a "cool and unique" way of telling that story.

"What is one of the coolest things about it is she will be by far the most powerful character we've ever introduced in the movie. 'How do you find those limitations? How do you find those vulnerabilities?' is something that is sort of at the crux of the story that we're putting together," he said. "She has -- as you know from the comics -- an interesting story, and I think we have a very cool and unique way of telling that story. I don't think it's leaked yet exactly what we're doing with her movie or how we're doing it, but it will be cool. She will prove to be a very important character in our universe for all the movies."

Marvel's Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Air Force One pilot, Carol Danvers, the film is written by Guardians of the Galaxy's Nicole Perlman and Inside Out's Meg LeFauve. It will release March 8, 2019.
