CBMB: Captain Marvel Film Adds a New Writer

By Muuka Muyumba

Today, Deadline reported that Marvel has hired Tomb Raider reboot and Gotham City Sirens writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet to help finish up the script for its upcoming Captain Marvel film.  Robertson-Dworet has been working for years to grab a foothold in the genre industry, and recently opened up about how her perseverance.  She’s been part of male-dominated writing rooms on projects like the Transformer movies while also having also been vocal about getting action stories for women of all ages.

Oscar-winner Brie Larson headlines the film as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel with Samuel L. Jackson returning as younger Nick Fury as the film will take place in the early 1990s. Captain Marvel will lead S.H.I.E.L.D. in the fight against Skrull invaders who battle the Kree aliens. The storyline of the film was laid out a few weeks ago by Marvel president Kevin Feige at San Diego Comic Con, surprising fans with the question of where she has been throughout the modern MCU history. Recent rumors have suggested that Captain Marvel may be trapped in the quantum realm or possibly in space continuing the fight against the Skrulls.

The film had been in the hands of writers Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), but now Marvel has tasked Robertson-Dworet with carrying the script over the finish line. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are still slated to direct.

Perlman offered some praise for Robertson-Dowret over social media earlier today:

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 where Geneva (who’s got incredible character chops) takes our beloved CM.

Captain Marvel is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2019 with the character set to reportedly debut in Avengers 4.
