Guardians of the Galaxy’s Nicole Perlman wrote a previous draft of the script with Inside Out co-writer Meg LaFeuve doing rewrites, but LaFeuve had to move onto her Disney animated film, Gigantic, which she’s also co-directing.

Robertson-Dworet’s previous credits include MGM and Warner Bros’ upcoming Tomb Raider reboot, starring Alicia Vikander, and the planned Suicide Squad spin-off Gotham City Sirens, also for Warner Bros. Being hired by Marvel Studios will essentially put the screenwriter on both sides of the Marvel vs. DC “aisle.”

Disney has set March 8, 2019 as the release date for Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel.

Deadline initially reported on the writer change with Robertson-Dworet repped by  360, and HJTH.
