Captain Marvel has had to bring in a new script writer…

August 16th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So we know that the Captain Marvel movie will feature a young Nick Fury, will be set in the 1990s and will have The Skrull as the villains…

But what we don’t know is who will eventually write the damned thing!

Since they were hired in 2015, Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman have been penning the movie but because of other commitments, the script was never finished and now Marvel have been forced to move to another writer.

And they’ve turned to Geneva Robertson-Dworet to fill their boots.

After penning the news Tomb Raider movie and the upcoming DC Cinematic outing, Gotham City Sirens, Robertson-Dworet is now a hot property in Hollywood.

The movie is still set to be released on March 8th, 2019 and will still be directed by Mississippi Grind’s Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Is this a worry or just part of the business? Let us know what you are all thinking, gang…

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….
