Who run the world? Girls. Writers Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Pixar's Inside Out) are apparently thiiiiiiiiiis close to inking a deal to pen the latest offering from Disney and Marvel—Captain Marvel, the first female-driven superhero movie from the comic powerhouse.

But that's not all—TheWrap is reporting that Marvel is working to hire a female filmmaker. (Could it perhaps be Michelle MacLaren, who just recently left the new Wonder Woman film after having creative differences with Warner Bros? COULD IT?!)

Here's hoping. Especially since Wonder Woman has already replaced MacLaren with another female director—Patty Jenkins. In any case, we'll be there when the movie opens July 6, 2018. Even though that's *so* far away.
