Back in 2015, it was announced that Meg Lefauve and Nicole Perlman would be working on the Captain Marvel script, but with the announcement of a new screenwriter in the form of Geneva Robertson-Dworet, some fans are curious if the movie is getting a page one rewrite.
Perlman herself has gone to Twitter to confirm that that is not the case, and Robertson-Dworet will simply be steering the story from this point on. She tweets:
As of now, we have no general idea on the story that will be taking place in Captain Marvel. We do know that the movie will be a 90s period piece, and it has been confirmed that a young Nick Fury will be making an appearance. People are also guessing that the movie will explain just how Nick lost his one eye.
With a release date set for 2019, Marvel Studios can take its sweet time with Captain Marvel. Sure they have been getting some flak for taking such a long time to release a female-led superhero movie, but the studio has confirmed that it is more important for them to make quality movies as compared to pumping them out on time. We don't need another Batman v Superman situation in our hands.
