Welcome, once again, to The Monitor, WIRED's column dedicated to the news of the pop culture world. What's been happening this week? Well, aside from Captain Marvel's continued dominance, we've got an Oscar-winning documentary landing on Hulu and some good news for Marvel's first Asian-American-led movie. Strap in; it’s gonna be a bumpy (but fun!) ride.

Marvel's Shang-Chi Movie Has a Director

All the hype right now might be about Marvel's first female-lead superhero movie Captain Marvel, but that doesn't mean that's the only comic-book-movie news worth talking about. In fact, just yesterday word came out that the studio has hired Destin Daniel Cretton to direct Shang-Chi, Marvel’s first superhero movie with an Asian lead. If you don’t immediately recognize the name, Cretton is the director behind Short Term 12, an indie flick about a group home for teenagers that coincidentally starred Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson. See? It's all coming full-circle.

Hulu Lands and Oscar-Winning Doc

Good news for people sad they hadn't seen Free Solo before it won Best Documentary at this year's Oscars: Hulu just picked up the film and is now offering it to stream. The movie, directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and photographer Jimmy Chin, follows solo climber Alex Honnold as he attempts to climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park sans rope. Yes, it's a nail-biter.

Captain Marvel Will Dominate for a Second Weekend

Not content with the half-billion in US dollars it's already earned, Captain Marvel is projected to come for everyone's last coin again this weekend. Though the movie likely won't make the $455 million it made worldwide in its debut outing, the movie is still projected to bring in another $70 to $85 million. Not bad.
