Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, is set to open in theaters on March 8, 2019.

The Times has confirmed that "Mississippi Grind" directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have been tapped to helm the upcoming Marvel feature.

The team's output doesn't necessarily scream superhero film pedigree, but perhaps that's a good thing.

Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as the lead; it's being written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman, who previously scripted Pixar's Inside Out.

After a lengthy search that has included a good number of female directors, the choice of the pair feels in keeping with the Marvel tactic of finding those who have worked in the indie field and elsewhere, but seemed ready to bring their talents to the MCU.
