Marvel Studios is in final negotiations with writer Megan McDonnell to pen the script for Captain Marvel 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter. McDonnell is a staff writer on the Marvel Studios series WandaVision, which is coming to the Disney+ streaming service.

The trade adds that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who co-wrote and directed the first movie, will not return to helm the sequel but are in talks to remain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and may direct a Disney+ series. Marvel Studios is reportedly looking for a female director for Captain Marvel 2 and is eyeing a 2022 release.

Story details are being kept under wraps, but it is expected the sequel will move the setting of the 1990s from the first movie to the present day.

The first Captain Marvel (buy at Amazon) opened in theaters in March of 2019 and went on to gross $1.128 billion at the worldwide box office, with $426.8 million coming from North America and $701.4 million from international markets.

The movie follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.

Produced by Kevin Feige, the film stars Academy Award winner Brie LarsonSamuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, with Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
