Marvel reportedly sought out female writers specifically for the project. Perlman and LeFauve were teamed up by Marvel president Kevin Feige, who asked the two women to combine their respective ideas for the film into one script.
Captain Marvel, nee Carol Danvers, is an Air Force pilot who gains superpowers after her DNA is blended with that of an alien.
Fingers crossed that Marvel also goes with a female director. The film will open July 6, 2018.
