As one of the few cosmic Marvel superheroes, another trip into the stars would be very welcome in Captain Marvel 2, especially when Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is still years away.

The superhero movie starred Brie Larson in the titular role, also known as Carol Danvers. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck wrote and directed it alongside co-writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

In terms of a potential release date for Captain Marvel 2, 2022 is being targeted, along with a female director to helm the project. After all, the film was a big hit, grossing over $US 1.1 billion worldwide (including $US 10 million here in Malaysia) with a $US 152 million production budget.

However, it is thought they could end up directing a Disney+ series.
