According to The Hollywood Reporter, Megan McDonnell, who is now one of the staff writers on Marvel spin-off series WandaVision, is set to pen the script.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the Marvel studio is seeking a female director to take on the movie, which has a potential 2022 premiere date. Furthermore, it is said this new story will move from the 1990s of the original to the present day. The Captain Marvel writing-directing duo Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck are not returning to helm the sequel, which has officially received the green light from Marvel. Early reports suggest that finding a female director is a priority.

While she's new to the Captain Marvel sub-franchise, McDonnell isn't new to the MCU.

The new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge is now available
If you're a Mac user, Edge is now available for your computer for the first time and it's definitely worth a look. To get the new Edge for Android and iOS, you'll have to head to the Google Play Store and App Store respectively.

WandaVision is the first major credit for McDonnell, who began the series as a staff writer and was promoted to story editor. WandaVision will have the kid Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel as an adult. I didn't even have time to talk about The Fantastic Four. 2019's Captain Marvel saw Danvers (Larson) become one of the world's most powerful heroes after she survived an alien engine explosion.

Last July, while at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, reassured fans that there would be a Captain Marvel 2 but did not disclose any further details. After all, the film was a big hit, grossing over $US 1.1 billion worldwide (including $US 10 million here in Malaysia) with a $US 152 million production budget.
