The news about Captain Marvel 2 comes after Marvel boss Kevin Feige teased the sequel at San Diego Comic Con last year.
“We didn’t even mention that we’re making Black Panther 2 and we didn’t mention that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is coming,” he quipped.
“We didn’t even have time to talk about Captain Marvel 2, by the way. I didn’t even have time to talk about the Fantastic Four. And there’s no time left to talk about mutants.”
Last month, Carol Danvers actor Larson revealed she didn’t have any filming dates set for the second film yet.
“I don’t really know what job I’m going to do next, which is very exciting,” she told Variety. “I don’t even know what my life’s gonna be!”

Marvel bosses have been keeping details tightly under wraps so far, but we do know the movie will be set after the events of Captain Marvel.
It’s not yet clear whether the action will take place before or after Avengers: Endgame in the timeline.
Meanwhile, Feige previously hinted at the possibility of Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan — a Muslim teenage girl who discovers she has shape-shifting powers and uses Captain Marvel as inspiration to become her own superhero — making an appearance in Captain Marvel 2.
Speaking about the Ms. Marvel Disney+ series which is in the works, he said: “We wanted to get Captain Marvel out there first so that there is something for a young Muslim girl to get inspired by.”
“My dream would be that Ms. Marvel gets to come into play in the sequel,” Larson said last year. “That’s the goal.”
The first Captain Marvel film grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide, the first female-led superhero movie to make over $1 billion.
Elsewhere, Larson has also spoken about the power of the character, telling Variety: “I felt the importance of creating a symbol when I was making Captain Marvel.
“But once I’m done on set filming, and then especially when the movie’s out, I am here to allow people to know that there’s an experience they can have access to if they want, but it’s not mine anymore.
“Captain Marvel’s definitely not mine anymore,” she added. “And it makes me so thrilled that it’s beyond me.”
