Marvel Studios has hired Geneva Robertson-Dworet to write the script for Captain Marvel.
Original plans for the upcoming Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson, involved the movie being filmed from a script penned by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. According to a new report on Deadline, Marvel has opted to have Robertson-Dworet take over the script after LeFauve had to leave to co-direct Gigantic, a big-budget animated feature from Marvel’s sister studio, Disney Animation. There is no word on why Perlman left the movie as well.
Robertson-Dworet is no stranger to action movies, with script credits including MGM’s anticipated Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander, and Warner Bros.’ Gotham City Sirens, the Suicide Squad spin-off that will see Margot Robbie reprise her DC Extended Universe role of Harley Quinn.
Starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel is set in the 1990s, and will draw upon elements of Marvel Comics’ Kree/Skrull War. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, the film also stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. Captain Marvel arrives March 8, 2019.
