The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 3 is now in full swing, with several new characters successfully being introduced this year. Black Panther and Spider-Man were scene stealers in May's Captain America: Civil War, while Dr. Stephen Strange led his own vehicle to much critical acclaim and box office revenue. This trio's arrival into the MCU is only the tip of the iceberg, however, since more additions will be joining the franchise in the near future. One of the most anticipated newcomers is Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, who will be played by Oscar winner Brie Larson.

Marvel is planning to release the first Captain Marvel film in March 2019, and they have slowly but surely been putting the pieces together. Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman are tasked with penning the script, but fans are more curious to learn who will direct the feature. The studio is understandably taking their time with that matter, frequently reiterating that it is important a woman filmmaker calls the shots. Initially, it seemed like an announcement on that front would be made by the end of the summer, but that obviously did not happen. Now, the latest Captain Marvel update indicates next year will have the answers.

Variety film reporter Justin Kroll took to Twitter to share new information about Captain Marvel's development, revealing that a script treatment is nearly in place and Marvel will be taking meetings with director candidates soon:
