Does Marvel Want Angelina Jolie To Direct CAPTAIN MARVEL?

There’s a new report that Marvel Studios wants Angelina Jolie to direct Captain Marvel. The rumor originated from a gossip magazine called OK! Magazine, and they say the studio wants her to direct the movie so badly that they are willing to pay her $20 million. This is what the report gives us:

"Having a female director is a priority for them. She never thought she'd be in such huge demand as a director, and to be courted by Marvel after the Sony fiasco is a huge pat on the back."

Their sources also apparently told them that one of the reasons Marvel wants Jolie so bad is because they liked what she did with Unbroken. I didn’t think Unbroken was really that great of a film, and I think Jolie is a mediocre director.

It makes sense that Marvel would want a female director to take on Captain Marvel, but I seriously doubt they would spend anywhere near $20 million on ANY director to direct one of their films. Most A-list actors don't even make that much money for a movie. Marvel seems to go after more up-and-coming directors, not the established directors that would cost them a ridiculous amount of money. 

I personally believe that the report is crap, but for conversation's sake, what female directors do you think would be a good choice to take on Captain Marvel?
