It was announced a couple of months back that Captain Marvel helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck would not be returning to helm the sequel, much to the dismay of some fans. Well, Marvel Studios has found their person to direct the highly-anticipated sequel, in the form of Candyman 2 director Nia DaCosta.

This is a huge get for the studio as DaCosta is one of the rising talents in Hollywood right now. She was personally handpicked by Oscar-winner Jordan Peele to direct Candyman for his production studio and garnered acclaim for her neo-western crime indie film Little Woods starring Tessa Thompson.
