Captain Marvel co-director Anna Boden is the first woman to direct a Marvel Studios film - but there are more coming, according to studio president Kevin Feige. In an interview promoting this week's Ant-Man & The Wasp, Feige was asked when to expect news of more female directors inside the MCU.

"We've got announcements that we'll be making at some point revealing that," Feige told Gamespot. It has been reported that Marvel was specifically looking for a female director for a planned Black Widow film.

Wonder Woman Patty Jenkins was originally intended to be Marvel Studios' first female director - but left Thor: The Dark World in 2011, just two months after being announced for the project.

Back in November 2017, Feige said that "we've got another 20 movies on the docket" beginning with Spider-Man: Far From Home "that are completely different from anything that's come before - intentionally."

Jon Watts is currently filming Spider-Man: Far From Home, and James Gunn is locked in to return for 2020's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Feige has confirmed work on a Black Widow film and a second Doctor Strange, but no directors have been announced.
