‘Captain Marvel 2’: ‘Widows’ Cinematographer Sean Bobbitt Reveals He’s Joined The Marvel Sequel

Captain Marvel 2 will see Nia DaCosta (Candyman) direct a trio of Marvel Studios heroines with the main cast set to star Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel, and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau. As production is expected to take place this year under the working title Goat Rodeo (via Production Weekly) in the United Kingdom, a cinematographer has seemingly been selected.

Sean Bobbitt revealed to Below The Line News back in February that he’s signed-up for Captain Marvel 2 and that filming is indeed taking place in 2021.

BOBBITT: “I’m hoping to get back. I’m sort of signed-up to shoot Captain Marvel 2, so that will be a real change for me. It’s a very different type of film to what I usually make, and I’m very excited to be a part of that.”

The cinematographer’s credits include 12 Years A Slave, Judas & The Black Messiah, Widows, Byzantium, Shame, Hunger, The Place Beyond The Pines, and the Oldboy remake. Notably working consistently with British filmmaker Steve McQueen on a regular basis.

Zawe Ashton is reportedly playing a villain in Captain Marvel 2 and will likely have some connection to the Disney+ series Secret Invasion, which has a Skrull-focused plot with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn as Talos taking lead roles. The ending of WandaVision seemed to hint that Parris’ Monica Rambeau might end up showing up in Secret Invasion as well.

The original film took place mostly in the 1995 and we last saw Talos pretending to be Nick Fury in Spider-Man: Far From Home. It should be interesting seeing Danvers interacting with Monica and Fury in the present. We have to assume that the new cosmic organization S.W.O.R.D. (introduced in WandaVision) will have an increased role in both Secret Invasion and the Captain Marvel sequel.

Captain Marvel 2 currently has a release date of November 11, 2022.
