RUMOR: Angelina Jolie Wanted By Marvel Studios To Direct CAPTAIN MARVEL

Take this with a pinch of salt for the time being, but a new report claims that Marvel are willing to pay Unbroken helmer Angelina Jolie upwards of $20 million to take charge of Captain Marvel. Why are they so desperate to land the actress turned filmmaker? Read on for details...

 
According to OK! Magazine, Angelina Jolie is being eyed to direct Captain Marvel. Before we go any further, bear in mind that they are basically a gossip magazine, and if this was true, we would have likely heard something from the trades by now! On the other hand, they're reasonably respected (and certainly above the likes of The Sun and The National Enquirer). Anyway, their sources have apparently told them that Marvel Studios were so impressed by Unbroken that they're offering the actress turned director a whopping $20 million to helm their first female led superhero movie. "Having  female director is a priority for them. She never thought she'd be in such huge demand as a director, and to be courted by Marvel after the Sony fiasco is a huge pat on the back." It would certainly make sense for Kevin Feige to target Jolie for Captain Marvel, and she would bring a lot more attention to the fairly obscure property than many other female directors. Thoughts?
