Reports said that Marvel executives have had a private meeting with the filmmaker for “Captain Marvel” movie, projected to be released in 2019.
Elizabeth Wood carved her name in the film making industry when she had her debut feature “White Girl” at the Sundance in February. ‘White Girl’ followed the story of character played by Morgan Saylor. The movie was lauded for its tackling of the topics on sex, and drugs.
This coming of age movie made Elizabeth Wood clinch the Grand Jury Prize nomination as well as a deal with Netflix.
Earlier reports revealed that Marvel previously met with Emily Carmichael to discuss a possible directing post, but it seemed like the studios will have to decide who among the two.
But We Got This Covered noted that Elizabeth Wood has more advantage than Emily Carmichael when it comes to a feature-length film.
“While the focus of Wood’s work seems far less in tune with Marvel’s ever-expanding cinematic universe than Carmichael’s, whose awarding-winning short-subject films have been distinctly comedic and science-fiction-oriented, the latter has the disadvantage of not yet having directed a feature-length film,” the report said.
It also said that Marvel seemed to be eyeing for untapped and unestablished female directors to lead the Captain Marvel movie, Movie Pilot said.
Amidst rumors about the possible director for “Captain Marvel,” there is still no confirmation about the final name.
“Captain Marvel” is said to be included in the Phase 3 of Marvel Cinematic Universe, as well as a possible Black Widow film.
Movie Pilot also hinted that since “Captain Marvel” is close to Spider-Man, the character might be introduced in the coming “Spider-Man: Homecoming” next year.
