"Captain Marvel" will be helmed by duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and the decision has been applauded by fans but some are also skeptical. One such fan cast aspersions on the intentions of the Marvel Studio but Brie Larson, who is essaying "Captain Marvel," defended creator Victoria Alonso openly on the social networking site with a mini tweet.
The director or rather the directors for "Captain Marvel" have been finalized. According to Comicbook, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will be handling the task for the much-awaited Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Ever since the announcement was made, fans have been excited but some are also skeptical about the decision to bring in Fleck. Many feel that the first female heroine movie of the studio ought to be directed by a female and this led one fan to question the motive of the studio.
One Twitter user asked if Marvel has a gender problem and surprisingly Captain Marvel herself replied. Actress Brie Larson came up with a short but substantial reply, defending Marvel senior executive Victoria Alonso, who is the current Executive Vice President of Physical Production. Notably, Alonso is known to have a say in almost every project of the studio since "Iron Man,".
So, this decision to go for a female-male combo, instead of a sole female director, has led to some whispers. However, credit needs to be given to Brie Larson, who showed solidarity with her team and stood up for her female colleague. The Captain Marvel spirit does seem to have influenced her. As for "Captain Marvel," the film is based on the story of Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot, who gains superpowers after her DNA gets infused with an alien during an accident.
It is worth mentioning here that "Captain Marvel" is one of the most-awaited movies from the Marvel banner and will arrive in theaters on March. 8, 2019.
