Marvel YA Announces CAPTAIN MARVEL Novel, BLACK WIDOW Sequel

Last week at New York Comic-Con, Marvel made a major announcement of their Young Adult expansion during the Women of Marvel panel! Not only will there be a sequel to Margaret Stohl’s Black Widow: Forever Red, we’ll also be getting another YA-based prose novel starring Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel!

The prose take on Captain Marvel will be written by husband and wife writing team, Shannon and Dean Hale.


Shannon is the autor of a number of books, including Austenland, the Ever After High series, and the Princess Academy series. Dean Hale has previously worked with his wife on Rapunzel’s Revenge and The Princess In Black before working on the children’s book Scapegoat.

Marvel plans to release their Captain Marvel YA novel in 2016. No word yet in when to expect the Black Widow sequel.
