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