Nia has made MCU history by being the first and youngest Black woman to direct a Marvel film
The director of the forthcoming Captain Marvel 2/ The Marvels, Nia DaCosta, has indicated that the film will tackle some difficult topics. The forthcoming film is a sequel to Captain Marvel, which was released in 2019. Brie Larson will reprise her role as Carol Danvers, nicknamed Captain Marvel, in the film. There will also be recognisable faces in the film, like as Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau, and Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo. This will be in addition to Iman Vellani’s new role as Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel.
Nia has already made MCU history by being the first and youngest Black woman to direct a Marvel film. Candyman, her other project, will be released in theatres on August 27th, after more than a year of delays. Nia’s Candyman is already prepared to address the legacy of racial atrocities perpetrated against the Black Community.
The filmmaker confirmed to Variety that The Marvels, like her forthcoming Candyman, would tackle difficult topics. Marvel movies are renowned for being fun, but Nia wants to ensure that some important topics are included in all of her films. She said,“It’s a completely different beast,” I remark. But I’m fascinated by how we all cope with suffering and trauma, and there’s some of that in the storey.”
