There is one great thing Marvel has done for Hollywood, and that is hiring Nia DaCosta as the director of Captain Marvel 2. After the way things ended in Avengers: Endgame, we believe Captain Marvel will lead the MCU heroes.
However, fans are unsure whether Brie Larson will appear in any cameo appearances or any team-up movies in Marvel. But one thing we know is that she is getting a new solo film Captain Marvel 2, directed by Nia DaCosta. Let’s check out why Nia DaCosta is the next big thing for Hollywood and Marvel.
Marvel always gives a chance to new talented directors in a major platform
Nowadays, many talented directors are rising in the Hollywood industry. And Marvel has always given a chance to prove their potential to the emerging filmmakers the biggest possible platform. It has helped numerous filmmakers like James Gunn, Taika Waititi, Jon Favreau, Ryan Coogler, and many more. They have received a mega-budget for the very first time.
Female Director are ruling the Hollywood industry
Female directors are giving back to back hits these days. They have a lot of potential in them, and the same goes for Nia DaCosta. She is new in the line of rising female directors, who has been handed Captain Marvel 2. Apart from that, Niki Caro has directed the upcoming live-action Mulan remake of Disney. In history, it will be the most expensive film to be produced by a female director.
DC and Marvel are now highly committed to hiring female directors in their films. Cate Shortland’s Black Widow, Chloé Zhao’s The Eternals, and Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984 are the best examples. Coming back to Nia DaCosta, being a black woman and getting a chance in this industry is not a cup of tea. Besides, Gina Prince-Bythewood became the first Black woman to direct high budget Netflix’s The Old Guard (2020). And now, DaCosta’s getting a big blockbuster movie is a clear indication of more beautiful opportunities to come.
Will Captain Marvel 2 be a huge step for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Hollywood Industry?
If Hollywood continues to embrace people based on their sheer talent, filmmakers like DaCosta will become a huge part of this industry. Even her Captain Marvel 2 will become a huge hit. In the past, she has already directed horror Candyman, which is speculated to release on October 16, 2020. This is a huge thing for her.
Moreover, Captain Marvel 2 is the prime candidate, where Marvel fans can expect the next Avengers-level villain to make an appearance. We all have seen Captain Marvel’s intense powers in her previous films, so she is the natural fit to lead the Avengers team forward. Once Captain Marvel 2 begins shooting, Nia DaCosta will have a lot of material to work on the character.
Will Captain Marvel 2 be a hit or a miss? We can only find that out when it releases worldwide. Moreover, the film is slated to release on July 8, 2022, in the United States.
