Will Angelina Jolie Direct Captain Marvel?

Here is an interesting story coming out of OK! Magazine’s most recent issue. In their insider section, the magazine claims that Marvel Studios is after Angelina Jolie to direct their upcoming Captain Marvel movie. The report also says they are offering her $20 million to take on the project. Having a female director on the project of course makes sense and they say that Marvel was very impressed by her film Unbroken.

The article also mentions Jolie is surprised to be in demand after the recent Sony hack revealed a series of emails between producer Scott Rodin and Sony co-chair Amy Pascal. In The emails Rudin made some very unflattering comments about Jolie including calling her a “minimally talented spoiled brat”.

It’s hard to judge this particular rumor based on the source, but I do think Marvel will go for a female director for the film and they do like handing their big movies to the folks who direct movies like Swingers and Slither… but has Jolie proven herself enough in just two films (The other being In The Land Of Blood And Honey) for Marvel to hand her the reigns of the first femaled-led superhero film? That remains to be seen.
