What Marvel wants, Marvel typically gets. After the superhero capital of the world expressed interested in recruiting Selma director Ava DuVernay to direct the developing film, Black Panther, it was only a matter of time before everything was signed, sealed and delivered.

MCU Exchange has just revealed that Ava DuVernay has officially been put on board to steer the ship that has already named Chadwick Boseman as its captain in the title role.

Although Black Panther isn’t hitting theaters until July 6, 2018, the reported plan is to have DuVernay on the set of Captain America: Civil War as it will likely introduce Black Panther into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The third installment of the Captain America movies is currently being shot in Nigeria.

Mark Bailey is currently developing the movie’s script and the three-year time-lapse from now until the movie’s release should give DuVernay plenty of time to brush up on her superhero knowledge.
