Co-writers and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have been a team for over 15 years now, and their latest project shows that they are a well-oiled machine.
They collaborated on the 2006 film Half Nelson, with Fleck serving as director and Boden editing and co-producing.
Though they are very private when it comes to their personal lives, an LA Times article from 2010 discussing their film It’s Kind of a Funny Story states that Boden and Fleck had broken up prior to filming.
Boden and Fleck, who had nothing but nice things to say about him, had previously worked with the Australian actor on the film Mississippi Grind, in which he starred alongside another actor who is now a Marvel superhero, Ryan Reynolds.
Despite their past successes, it wasn’t easy for Boden and Fleck to land Captain Marvel.
