Nicole Perlman is an American screenwriter, best known for co-writing the script for Guardians of the Galaxy with James Gunn. She grew up in Boulder, Colorado.[1] Perlman studied film and dramatic writing at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where she graduated with a BFA in 2003.[2] She won the Tribeca Film Festival's Sloan Grant for Science in Film for her screenplay Challenger.[3]

She was enrolled in Marvel's screenwriting program in 2009,[4] during which time she was offered several of their lesser-known properties on which to base a screenplay. Out of those, Perlman chose Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning's Guardians of the Galaxy, due to her interest in space and science fiction.[5] "I can’t tell you what the other titles were that [Marvel] were offering up on the table, but I can tell you that one of them was a little bit more appropriate for me, just based on gender," she says. "I think they were a little taken aback when I chose Guardians, because there were ones that would make a lot more sense if you were a romantic-comedy writer or something like that." Perlman spent two years writing a draft, immersing herself in the Guardians universe. In late 2011, Perlman was asked to create another draft, and in early 2012, American writer and director James Gunn was brought in to contribute to the script, and direct the film.[6][7]

In April 2015, it was announced that Perlman would be writing the script for the live-action Captain Marvel film alongside Meg LeFauve.[8]
