New Captain Marvel Writer Won't Start Script from Scratch

17 August 2017 5:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few days ago, we reported that Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel has found itself a new writer, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet coming aboard to work on the script. It wasn't specified in the report if she was going to be starting over from scratch with a page one rewrite, or if she would be working off the original script by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), but today we got confirmation of the latter. Nicole Perlman took to Twitter to confirm that Geneva Robertson-Dworet will in fact be the "next writer" to work on Captain Marvel. Here's what Nicole Perlman had to say in a brief statement.

"Happy to confirm my pal Geneva Robertson-Dworet will be the next writer to help guide #CaptainMarvel's journey to the screen. She's stellar! I was lucky to have the years on Cm that I did, I'm excited to see »

Captain Marvel will not be undergoing a page one rewrite

17 August 2017 2:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of days ago it was announced that Tomb Raider writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet is taking over scripting duties on Captain Marvel from Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman, who wrote the original screenplay for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster.

And now, Guardians of the Galaxy writer Perlman has taken to Twitter to discuss the switch-up, revealing that Robertson-Dworet will be working on their script, rather than a page one rewrite, and that the movie will still retain the elements revealed at Comic-Con – i.e. an early 90s setting, and Carol Danvers battling the Skrulls.

“Happy to confirm my pal Geneva Robertson-Dworet will be the next writer to help guide Captain Marvel’s journey to the screen. She’s stellar!” said Perlman on Twitter. “Geneva is taking it from here and I’m sure she’ll knock it out of the park. It’s been a great 2.5 years though. All the ideas »

Outgoing Captain Marvel Screenwriter Rubbishes Talk Of Page-One Rewrite

17 August 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Captain Marvel is fast beginning to take shape ahead of its planned production start in the fall.

More than two years after they first climbed on board, screenwriters Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) have now passed the Carol Danvers origins story over to the incoming Geneva Roberston-Dworet, whose credits include Tomb Raider and David Ayer’s DC spinoff, Gotham City Sirens. That small change in personnel will presumably allow Roberston-Dworet to shepherd Captain Marvel over the finish line and, crucially, iterate on the screenplay that’s already in place.

In light of Geneva Roberston-Dworet’s appointment on Wednesday, there have been rumblings that Marvel has ordered a page-one rewrite. And with only four months to go until Captain Marvel is due to swoop into production, that rumor was enough to place comic book fans on red alert. But don’t fret; Nicole Perlman took »

“Captain Marvel” Lands New Screenwriter

16 August 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Brie Larson as Captain Marvel: Fan art made by BossLogic

Tomb Raider” reboot scribe Geneva Robertson-Dworet will be writing the story of Carol Danvers. Marvel has hired her to take over “Captain Marvel” screenwriting duties from Meg LeFauve (“Inside Out”) and Nicole Perlman (“Guardians of the Galaxy”). Deadline broke the story.

LeFauve left the film in order to direct Disney’s “Jack and the Beanstalk” retelling, “Gigantic,” with Nathan Greno. The reason for Perlman’s exit is unclear.

Starring Oscar winner Brie Larson, “Captain Marvel” is about Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. Carol gains the powers of super-strength, energy projection, and flight in an accident that fuses her DNA to an alien’s. “Half Nelson” writers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have signed on to direct the film, which is is expected to hit theaters March 8, 2019.

Robertson-Dworet is an up and coming screenwriter. Her first project, the new “Tomb Raider” film starring Alicia Vikander, will open March 16, 2018. The pic sees Lara Croft (Vikander) struggling to survive on the island where her adventurer father went missing.

The two-time Black List writer is tapped to pen “Gotham City Sirens,” the “Suicide Squad” spinoff about Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and other female DC supervillains. Deadline adds that Robertson-Dworet’s second Black List script, “Ares,” was acquired by MGM. “Underworld: Blood Wars” and “Outlander” director Anna Foerster is expected to helm the project.

‘Captain Marvel’ Concept Art Revealed

16 August 2017 1:12 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Captain Marvel‘ hasn’t even begun production yet, and we’ve already learned a lot about the film. After shuffling release dates several times, the film finally landed on a March 8, 2019 release date. We already know that Brie Larson will star as the title character. We also know that the film is a 90’s period piece, and that Samuel L. Jackson will return to the McU as a pre-eyepatch wearing Nick Fury. And finally, we know that the Skulls will be involved in some capacity in the film.

At this year’s Sdcc panel, concept art (pictured above) was leaked via everyone in Hall H. Although the concept art was enough to whet our appetites, we never really got a good look at Carol Danvers up close. That changed recently, as Marvel artist Andy Park took to twitter to finally reveal our first look at Captain Marvel in her full »

Captain Marvel Brings in Tomb Raider Reboot Writer

15 August 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel Studios has brought on Geneva Robertson-Dworet to write the script for its highly-anticipated Captain Marvel movie. The studio brought on Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) to write Captain Marvel back in April 2015, although it isn't clear if Geneva Robertson-Dworet will be starting from scratch with a page one rewrite, or if she will be working from this original draft. Since the movie doesn't hit theaters until March 8, 2019, there is still plenty of time to get the screenplay in working order.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, adding that Meg LeFauve has now moved on to write and direct the new Disney animated film Gigantic. Nicole Perlman also signed on last year to write the highly-anticipated and controversial Labyrinth remake, so its possible that they were both simply not available for further rewrites, which lead to Geneva Robertson-Dworet coming aboard.

Captain Marvel gets a new screenwriter

15 August 2017 12:56 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s some more official movement on Marvel Studio’s Captain Marvel, the Brie Larson-led superhero film that will further explore the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel has tapped Tomb Raider writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet to pen the new script according to Deadline.

Meg Lafauve and Nicole Perlman were originally writing the script, but Lafauve has had to depart the project to direct Disney Animation’s Gigantic. Robertson-Dworet has come in to take over and complete a new script. Her credits include the aforementioned Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft as well as another upcoming superhero film in Gotham City Sirens for David Ayer and Warner Bros.

Though Gotham City Sirens was not among WB’s announced DC slate at Comic Con a few weeks ago, Ayer has maintained the project is still a go and he will direct. The film will see Margot Robbie »

15 August 2017 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marvel has set Geneva Robertson-Dworet to pen the latest draft of “Captain Marvel” starring Brie Larson, sources tell Variety.

Mississippi Grind” helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are on board to direct. Kevin Feige is producing.

Inside Out” scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman wrote previous drafts. The comics followed Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight.

New Captain Marvel Concept Art Gives Us A Better Look At The Hero

12 August 2017 3:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s taken an awful long time – too long, perhaps – for Marvel to begin development on its first live-action, female-led superhero movie, but that prolonged wait has been brought to an end thanks to the upcoming Captain Marvel spinoff.

Headed up by the Oscar-winning Brie Larson (Kong: Skull IslandRoom), the Carol Danvers origin story made a big splash at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks back, where it was revealed that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s standalone pic will take place in the 1990s, and it’ll feature Samuel L. Jackson’s McU mainstay, Nick Fury. The inclusion of Fury will no doubt strengthen Captain Marvel‘s ties to its overarching universe, but aside from the villainous Skrulls, little is currently known about the story that Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) and Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) have rustled up.

Brie Larson On the Kind of Roles She Never Wants: ‘I Won’t Take the Job If It’s Like That’

9 August 2017 12:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oscar winner Brie Larson’s wide-ranging resume speaks to her interest in never doing the same thing twice — this is, after all, a talent that bounced from her Best Actress win for “Room” to a blockbuster turn in “Kong: Skull Island,” a former singer who first found fame with the bubble gum pop album “Finally Out of P.E.,” a serious star that has flexed her comedic chops in films like “21 Jump Street,” and a newly minted Marvel superhero — and the actress spoke to that aim at a recent tea held in honor of her upcoming film, “The Glass Castle.”

“I don’t know why I pick the jobs that I pick,” Larson said when asked about her process. “And I don’t want to know why. Usually, by the time I’m on the press tour and I’m asked questions and suddenly you’re put on the spot, »

Brie Larson wants to see Captain Marvel battling The Hulk

9 August 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We know that Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers will be battling the Skrulls in her 2019 solo movie, but the Oscar-winning actress has revealing there’s one superhero she’d like to see her character going up against if and when Captain Marvel joins the present day Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I do kind of have fantasies of battling The Hulk, just because that’s like, it’s just visually so good,” said Larson in an interview with USA Today, during which she also explained how she was initially reluctant to join such a huge franchise: “The Captain Marvel thing was something I really spent a lot of time thinking about.  And eventually I came to the conclusion that being part of a giant feminist film that can be a symbol for people, that was one I wished I would have had, just outweighs some of the small annoyances [of fame].

Brie Larson Wants Hulk to Fight Captain Marvel

8 August 2017 5:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans got to learn a great deal about the McU's upcoming Captain Marvel at Comic-Con 2017 last month. Marvel Studios confirmed the villains will be the Skrulls, with the story set in the 1990s, an era the Marvel Cinematic Universe has not yet explored except for a few scenes with the Winter Soldier in Civil War. Brie Larson's Carol Danvers will be joined by a de-aged Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Now, there is one other particular Avenger Brie Larson admits she'd like to do battle with. Here's what the actress had to say about which Avenger she'd like to go toe-to-toe with on the battlefield.

"I do kind of have fantasies of battling The Hulk, just because that's, like, it's just visually so good."

While one couldn't be blamed for thinking that Carol Danvers would be easily out-matched by the Green Goliath, that isn't exactly the case. Marvel Studios »

Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson Wants Carol Danvers To Go Up Against The Hulk

8 August 2017 2:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are known for squabbling amongst themselves almost as much as they are for defending our planet from alien nasties and corrupt organizations in the vein of Hydra. From the tension bubbling between Captain America and Iron Man, which ultimately spilled over in last year’s Civil War, to the upcoming gladiatorial tussle involving Thor and the Incredible Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel fans haven’t been left wanting for some good old-fashioned friendly fire within the McU.

And if Brie Larson has her way, the latest clash could involve Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and her Captain Marvel, who’s poised to make her debut via Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s 2019 solo movie – assuming Joe and Anthony Russo haven’t already included her in next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, that is.

Rebecca Thomas to Direct Fox Sci-fi Action-Thriller “Malignant”

8 August 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Rebecca Thomas: Perri Nemiroff/YouTube

Rebecca Thomas has booked yet another gig. According to Variety, the “Stranger Things” helmer has signed on to direct “Malignant,” a sci-fi action-thriller from Fox.

Based on the Boom! Studios comic “Malignant Man,” the film will center on a terminally ill patient who “discovers that his malignant tumor is actually a mysterious alien parasite. He’s assigned to battle a secret army,” the source summarizes.

Zak Olkewicz penned the script.

Other women-helmed comic book adaptations on the way include Gina Prince-Bythewood’s “Silver & Black” and “Captain Marvel,” co-directed by Anna Boden.

Thomas has a number of high-profile films in the works, including a live-action telling of “The Little Mermaid” starring Chloe Grace Moretz (“If I Stay”), and an adaptation of beloved John Green Ya novel “Looking for Alaska.” In March she signed on to bring Cheryl Della Pietra’s semi-autobiographical novel “Gonzo Girl” to the big screen.

She made her feature debut with 2012’s “Electrick Children,” a drama about a Mormon teen who thinks she was impregnated by listening to music. “I was raised mainstream Mormon in Las Vegas, so I had a TV and went to public school, and I had people who weren’t Mormon as my friends,” Thomas shared when she was asked about how much of the film was influenced by her own experiences.

Rebecca Thomas to Direct Fox Sci-fi Action-Thriller “Malignant” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Skrull concept art from Captain Marvel released

30 July 2017 2:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios announced that Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers would be battling The Skrulls in the 90s-set Captain Marvel movie, and now illustrator Jerad S.Marantz has taken to Instagram to show off his concept art for the alien race; check it out here…

Interestingly, in his caption Marantz includes the hashtag #SuperSkrulls, making reference to Super-Skrull, a character possessing the combined abilities of the Fantastic Four. Seeing as the rights to Marvel’s First Family are held by Fox, it would seem unlikely that we’ll be seeing Super-Skrull in Captain Marvel, unless the character is reworked in a major way.

The First Season of HBO’s “Room 104” is Over 50 Percent Women-Directed

28 July 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Room 104”: HBO

Year after year we’re disappointed by “Game of Thrones,” an addictive and entertaining series that clearly prides itself on its depictions of powerful female characters yet doesn’t hire women to helm episodes. Happily a new show on HBO boasts a much more female-friendly directing roster. The first season of “Room 104” premieres on the premium cable network today, and women directed or co-directed eight of its 12 episodes, amounting to about 67 percent of the season. Helmers include So Yong Kim (“Transparent”), Megan Griffiths (“The Night Stalker”), and Anna Boden (“The Affair”) — the latter having co-directed with frequent collaborator Ryan Fleck. (The pair have signed on to direct Brie Larson-starrer “Captain Marvel.”)

Created by Mark and Jay Duplass, the anthology series is set in room 104 of a low-budget U.S. hotel and follows all of the drama that occurs therein. As great as it is to see so many women directors employed in a season of television, it’s especially noteworthy — and heartening — because “Room 104” is created by men.

Series that have made headlines for employing high numbers of women directors like “Call the Midwife,” “Transparent,” “Queen Sugar,” “Jessica Jones,” “Harlots,” and “Gypsy” all have something in common: they were created by women. “Regardless of platform, programs with at least one women creator and/or executive producer featured higher percentages of women in other key behind-the-scenes roles,” Dr. Martha Lauzen concluded in her study of the 2015–16 TV season. That same report found that women directors accounted for just eight percent of directors on cable and streaming shows.

So kudos to the Duplass brothers, who presumably made a conscious effort to ensure that “Room 104” wasn’t directed solely — or mostly — by men. And maybe they didn’t intentionally seek out women and just chose the best people for the job — that’s cool too. It shows that they don’t have narrow-minded views about what a director looks like.

See below for a list of “Room 104's” women directors.

Sarah Adina Smith (two episodes)

So Yong Kim

Dayna Hanson

Megan Griffiths (two episodes)

Marta Cunningham

Anna Boden (with Ryan Fleck)
