Discussion in 'Captain Marvel' started by Dyson, Oct 29, 2014.
Take a run at Lynne Ramsay. She'd probably not be interested, but at this point its worth the shot.
what's the hold up here?
Thought, according to the rumors, we were supposed to get an announcement by August... then again before January...?
I suspect that Lorene Scafaria would jump at the chance to make this movie.
I surprised no director has been announced yet...
Anna Borden and Ryan Fleck to direct.
Marvel Press release confirming
Let's continue the discussion here:
Never heard of them.
This is both surprising and not surprising if that makes sense. Either way, I approve. Half Nelson is spectacular.
Dont be surprised by people complaining that marvel got a male and a female duo as directors. Instead of trusting a woman to do the all by herself.
Jealous of this grab by Marvel! These two are great.
I've never heard of these two but I've never heard of most Marvel directors.
Glad to see this finally moving forward. I'm sure some casting isn't too far behind if they're gonna start filming in January.
Also, funny this came out after Reed said they hired a director yesterday. Although he was supposedly kidding.
Billions is a great show.
Edit: they were once considered to direct Ant-Man (after EW left) and Guardians.
Really good new. I recommned Sugar to any of you, really heartfelt film. I have not seen anything else from them but most of the things they have done are acclaimed and they always work as a team. marvel didn;t force a man director in there. They go like the Russos.
Mississippi Grind was really good (and Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds were both great in it).
People let Marvel get away with anything when it comes to the diversity situation so I think it's only going to be a couple of people complaining.
That's really not true and there is not even an issue here. The people complaining haven't bothered to look at RT. They are a duo like the Russos. They always work together.
Half Nelson was great. I approve.
If it were just this film, then it wouldn't really be a problem. The problem is that Marvel's previous track record is frankly quite dismal in this regard. After almost a decade, and like 15 movies, how many of them have been directed solely by a woman. The answer is, ZERO!!
So it's a case (for many people) of "really, you cannot even let a woman direct the freaking Captain Marvel movie on her own, seriously Marvel?" Heck even WB, for all their problems, got Patty Jenkins to direct WW (which is only their fourth DCCU film).
Yeah there would be more merit to complaints if they were 2 separate directors forced to work together but they've always worked together and has been packaged as a duo.
This directing duo is quite an inspired and positive choice for Captain Marvel. Anna Borden and Ryan Fleck clearly know how to tell a well written, well structured, character driven story. They have a wonderful track record with past films.
I hope they get to fine-tune the script before shooting begins early next year.
^Again, it's more about Marvel's track record as a whole.
Yeah and got two male writers for the screeplay. Let's not go there.
So you are telling me those two guys went to Marvel's offices with a great pitch and vision for the movie, they have been working together since their first film, they write together. So Feige should have cut one of them not to anger some people online who have no perspective and the patience to look into their work? is that what you are telling me?
