Geneva Robertson-Dworet is the new Writer for "Captain Marvel." Her credits include "Tomb Raider" and "Gotham City Sirens," both of which are upcoming films. Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman were initially tapped to write the script, but LeFauve left to direct "Gigantic" with Nathan Green. Since Robertson-Dworet is mainly working on upcoming projects, it's hard to say what her work is like.

What do we know about "Captain Marvel" so far?

"Captain Marvel" is going to be the first female led film from Marvel Studios. At SDCC, more film details surfaced. The film is going to be taking place in the 90s and will include Nick Fury.

Brie Larson is playing the leading lady, which isn't recent news. We also know that the character will not be appearing in "Infinity War." During SDCC, they also released some concept art that shows off Captain Marvel's costume. We also know, courtesy of Fandom, that the film is still stacked with some epic goal power despite the writer change.

Where to learn more about the character

Captain Marvel might not be as well known as Black Widow or Wonder Woman in the eyes of the general public. It makes sense considering she's never appeared in the movies and not everyone who watches the movies, reads comics, too.

However, if you would like to dive into the character, there are a few good places to start.

Carol Danvers wasn't always Captain Marvel. She was initially Ms. Marvel, and Kamala Khan now bears that name. Carol Danvers' first appearance is in issue 13 of "Marvel Super-Heroes" from 1968 and her first appearance as Ms.

Marvel is in the first issue of "Ms. Marvel" from 1977. It isn't until 2012 that she makes her first appearance as Captain Marvel in issue 9 of "Avenging Spider-Man." So if you want more of her origins, maybe start there.

My main recommendation would be to check out both runs by Kelly Sue DeConnick.

She started a run in 2012 and one again in 2014. She's a fantastic writer and had a great take on the character throughout both runs. She also did a four-issue limited series with Kelly Thompson, David López, Laura Braga, and Paolo Pantalena titled "Captain Marvel & The Carol Corps."

Going back to the film, since the script is still in the drafting stages, I don't think it's too much of a cause for concern that there's a new writer. Geneva Robertson-Dworet still has to prove herself, but if she's been given these big opportunities, chances are that she's up for the task.

"Captain Marvel" is due out March 8, 2019.
