There was plenty of new information and footage to digest following the Marvel Studios Hall H panel during San Diego Comic-Con 2016, and one of the biggest announcements to come out of their presentation was the casting of Captain Marvel. Oscar winner Brie Larson was introduced as the newest member of the Marvel family, locked in to play Carol Danvers in the upcoming 2019 film. The next order of business for Kevin Feige and company is to find the right director for the project.

Over the weekend, it was revealed that the shortlist has been narrowed down to 10 possible candidates, but no names were provided. But now, one prospect has been identified, shedding some insight on Marvel's approach to finding a filmmaker for Captain Marvel.

Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander was asked by a fan on Twitter if she was in the running for the Captain Marvel job. While Alexander stated she is not (at least, at this point in time), she did mention someone who is, and it's a person with experience with superheroes: Rachel Talalay.
