Anna Boden says she is waiting for the day when women filmmakers directing an action-packed superhero film will be a routine and not something headline worthy.

Boden, who has co-directed the first female-fronted Marvel superhero film Captain Marvel along with Ryan Fleck, said making a film on a character which already enjoys an immense fan following was an amazing experience for her.

"This is the movie I really wanted to be a part of. It has been really amazing to work on this canvas with a character that so many people care so much about.

"But it's 2019... And every body here looks for the day when it is not news worthy that a woman is directing this kind of movie," Boden said at a press conference on Thursday.

Captain Marvel features Brie Larson in the titular role alongside Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury without his iconic eye-patch.

The film, which will hit the theatres in India on March 8, also features Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace.

The team, including Larson, Jackson, Chan and directors Boden and Fleck, is currently promoting the film in Singapore.
