Marvel Studios has reportedly found their Captain Marvel directors! Variety is reporting that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, best known for helming 2015’s Mississippi Grind starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn, are set to bring Academy Award winner Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers into the MCU.

In the regular Marvel Comics continuity, Carol Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s “Marvel Super-Heroes” #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed  into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.

“If you had the collector cards of the Marvel characters and you could see the power levels, she would be off the charts compared to anyone that we’ve previously introduced in a film,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige previously teased to Variety. ”

Setting the pair of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck as Captain Marvel directors makes a lot of sense given the studio’s success working with Joe and Anthony Russo. The brothers helmed Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War and are currently hard at work on Avengers: Infinity War. Boden and Fleck, meanwhile, also co-directed 2010’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story as well as episodes of Showtime‘s Billions and The Affair.
