The director of ‘Candyman’ Nia DaCosta will direct the sequel to ‘Captain Marvel’ for Marvel Studios.

According to The Wrap, Nia DaCosta will direct the project with Megan McDonnell, who worked on ‘Wandavision’, writing the project.

The first ‘Captain Marvel’ movie starred Brie Larson and made $1.1 billion worldwide at the box office. Details surrounding the equal have not been released. However, Marvel said at 2019 Comic-Con the movie will directly lead into the vents of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”

‘Captain Marvel’ starred Larson as Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who is recovered after a mysterious happenstance, which transformed her into a superhero. After landing back on Earth in the 1990s, Carol must save the planet with the help of Samuel L. Jackson’s character Nick Fury.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige briefly touched on the sequel at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, “We didn’t even mention that we’re making Black Panther 2 and we didn’t mention that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is coming. We didn’t even have time to talk about Captain Marvel 2, by the way. I didn’t even have time to talk about the Fantastic Four. And there’s no time left to talk about mutants.”

There is no news as to when or where ‘Captain Marvel 2’ will film. That said, since reopening the film industry in Los Angeles, LA Count is filming at 34% of what it would have been under normal conditions.

FilmLA announced Wednesday since the local government gave permission to resume filming on June 15th, the film office received over 570 film permit applications from 422 different productions. Limited filming started as early as June 19th soon as after restrictions loosened.

Most of the projects filming in Los Angeles were related to the advertising industry. Other projects include photography and commercials. In addition, reality TV production also increased with TV and film production expected to resume as early as September 2020.
