Marvel films have never been produced or directed by Black females. But that all changes with Nia DaCosta. Marvel Studios announced last week that DaCosta will direct Captain Marvel 2. Nia is the fourth female director and the first Black woman to direct a Marvel Studios film. She started receiving recognition for her film last year, called Little Woods

Captain Marvel 2 is set to come out on July 8, 2022. They haven’t released much else on the Captain Marvel sequel but we’ll be sure to update you as we find out more.
