A sequel to Captain Marvel is officially in the works and set to premiere some time in 2022.
Megan McDonnell, a writer for the Disney+ Marvel series WandaVision is currently in negotiations to write Captain Marvel 2, which will be set in the present day.
The original film - the first Marvel Studios movie with a solo female lead - was a hit, grossing more than $1 billion worldwide.
The blockbuster hit was directed by the writer/director duo of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Boden and Fleck co-wrote that script with Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and those three shared story credit with Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve.
Brie Larson will return as the plucky fighter pilot, who discovered her superhero powers in the first film while recovering elements of her past. The film starred Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Lashana Lynch as Carol's best friend Maria, Annette Bening as her mentor, and Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull leader.
