Ever since Brie Larson was announced as the future Carol Danvers, we have learned little about the upcoming film Captain Marvel, such as how her costume will look like or if we will see her make an appearance in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. One thing is for certain, the actress is quite ecstatic to play the character, and in a recent interview with SciFiNow, she was able to offer a small glimpse.
To be fair, there are a lot of iterations of her, so there’s going to be some people out there who think this isn’t right.
Taking on a comic book character is not an easy task for actors, as many fans hope for the characters they grew up with to be perfectly represented. Luckily, Larson will be the first person to tackle a live-action incarnation of Danvers and has the opportunity to be the leading lady of Marvel Studios’ first female-led superhero film. She certainly is looking forward to it.
Being a Marvel family member now, it’s still really surreal. I still can’t believe it to be honest, so very ‘pinch me’.
A major question is what we can expect for Danvers to be like, as some may wonder how she will fit into the bigger universe. There were some hints that she may be a character that will connect the more earth-based stories and the ventures into space. If she is to appear in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, she could potentially build up a relationship with the Guardians, who she may visit here and there.
She’s a believer in truth and justice and she is a bridge between two worlds, between Earth and space. She’s fighting between the flaws that are within her and all this good that she wants to try and spread and make the world a better place. She can also fly and shoot things out of her hands. And she’s really funny!
She does seem like a perfect fit alongside the very quip-heavy characters in the MCU. The actress has also hinted at her efforts to get into shape in preparation for her role in Kong: Skull Island has helped her prepare for her super-hero debut. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for the character and what will happen as soon as the film rolls around.
Are you excited to finally see a female lead on the movie side of the MCU? Let us know in the comments. Meanwhile, we have a while to wait for Captain Marvel, which will premiere in 2019.
