Brie Larson Captain MarvelWhen Marvel Studios announced their plans to bring Captain Marvel into the money making machine that is the MCU the internet went wild.

For what seemed like a century, fans began PhotoShopping their personal choices into the iconic Captain Marvel get-up.

Then when Marvel decided on going with Brie Larson, the next question was posed: who’s gonna direct it?

Many of course were assuming Marvel was going to go for someone in their current roster of successful director: Russo Brother, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, etc.

Though I’m sure any of them would have done a bang-up job helming the project, neither had the specific…chromosomes Marvel was looking for.

So Who’s Directing It?

Anna Boden and Ryan FleckAfter making their short list (♪♫ & checking it twice ♫♪) Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has decided to go with Mississippi Grind‘s directing duo, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Marvel’s success with duo directors has already proven to work with Captain America: Winter Soldier/Civil War directors, The Russo Brothers (Anthony and Joe Russo).

So with Feige’s knack for finding young talent, it was only a matter of time before he chose the two up-incoming duo directors, Anna and Ryan.

What Have They Made?

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s work together goes back to 2003, but it was 2009’s Sugar that brought their names into the spotlight.

Since then, the two have co-written and co-directed various films together including 2014’s very successful Mississppi Grind which starred Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn as alcoholic gamblers in Iowa.
