With Captain Marvel on Marvel’s movie slate in 2018, there’s a lot of speculation about who’ll star – yes, we want Katee Sackoff  too – and who will direct.

Now, OK! Magazine is reporting that Marvel Studios executives really liked Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and have offered her $20 million to direct the Carol Danvers movie – Captain Marvel.

“Having a female director is a priority for them,” the magazine claims a source has told them.

She never thought she’d be in such huge demand as a director,” they go on, “and to be courted by Marvel […] is a huge pat on the back”. 

So, we’ll just leave you to decide if this report is on the money or not, but whatever happens, Marvel will need to make their first female superhero standalone movie a cracker.

Captain Marvel is scheduled for release on July 6, 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
