Last week, we told you that the list of directors competing for the job helming Captain Marvel was down to three: Niki Caro, Lesli Linka Glatter, and Lorene Scafaria. Well, apparently that wasn't the full story because there is another female director that's still on the list. Mashable's Jeff Sneider sent out this tweet last Friday saying that director Rebecca Thomas is still in the running...
Also, the mystery contender to direct CAPTAIN MARVEL is Rebecca Thomas, who I was hinting at months ago on the show. https://t.co/YDF2TMBkUm— Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) August 26, 2016
For those of you unfamiliar with Thomas, she directed 2012's esoteric film Electrick Children, and is currently attached to direct a non-Disney adaptation of The Little Mermaid, with Chloe Grace Moretz in the title role. This casts some doubt over whether or not she's a serious contender for the job, but I imagine she'd want to get in with Disney and direct their live action version someday.
