While we were reporting this as far back as February (here), it seems that Marvel are seriously seeking Angelina Jolie for the Captain Marvel directing gig.

After the announcement that there were two writers, Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve, in the frame yesterday (here), it looks like Marvel are keen to get strong females attached to bring Carol Danvers to life.

We’ll keep our eye on this but we reckon this is another ‘no smoke without fire’ type of rumour.

Do you think Jolie would be a good fit for Captain Marvel? Let us know…

Captain Marvel is scheduled for UK release on 6th July 2018 and the US on 2nd November 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….
