Perlman, LeFauve Confirmed As "Captain Marvel" Screenwriters

After a report last week indicating that "Guardians of the Galaxy" co-writer Nicole Perlman and "Inside Out" screenwriter Meg LeFauve had been brought on board to write the screenplay for "Captain Marvel," Marvel has officially confirmed the duo's involvement with Carol Danvers' first solo film.

The official announcement remains light on details regarding the actual content of "Captain Marvel"; all that is known right now is that it will star Carol Danvers in the title role and hit theaters on November 2, 2018. This will be Perlman's second go-round in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She previously provided an early draft for 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy." Director James Gunn made changes to the script, but Perlman retained a co-writer credit on the final product.

LeFauve will make her feature film screenwriting debut later this summer with Pixar's "Inside Out," an animated film that takes place inside the body of a young girl and stars her anthropomorphized emotions. "Inside Out" will arrive in theaters on June 19.

With screenwriters now officially attached, "Captain Marvel" has to find a director and a lead actor. A report from The Wrap last week indicated that Michelle MacLaren, the director that recently stepped away from "Wonder Woman" because of creative differences, is rumored to be a frontrunner for the Marvel movie.
