Apr 26, 2017
On a press tour for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that filming on Captain Marvel is to begin February 2018.
Not much else has been revealed, though filming in February 2018 gives the Studios plenty of time to hit its 2019 release date. In a seperate press event held at Marvel Studios' offices, it was revealed by Variety that Anna Boden (Mississippi Grind) and Ryan Fleck (Misissippi Grind) have been tapped to direct Marvel's first female-led movie. It was previously announced that Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) would write the script.
Starring Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, the film premieres on March 8, 2019.
