"Captain Marvel" Filmmakers, Cast Members to Be Announced This Summer

"Captain Marvel" won't hit theaters until 2019, but Marvel Studios is gearing up to make a few announcements about the film. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed when fans might see announcements for Carol Danvers' solo film and hinted they may come as soon as next month.

"I think we'll be announcing a filmmaker in the next month or two, and probably some cast members later in the summer, at the end of the summer," Feige told Fandango. Though he didn't confirm as much, he hinted that Marvel may make some of these announcements at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

Feige also said Marvel Studios is open to more female-led films -- just not before 2019. "Yes, for sure, I think [Black] Widow at some point would be great," he explained. "But when you start talking about things that are now four/five years away...sometimes we do that. 'Dr. Strange' has been talked about for ten years. But we're focused on the next nine movies, which is a lot, between now and 2019."

Written by Nicole Perlman ("Guardians of the Galaxy") and Meg LeFauve ("Inside Out"), "Captain Marvel" is scheduled for release on March 8, 2019.
