Brie Larson is 'Captain Marvel'

26 July 2016

Today, reports from reliable sources at San Diego Comic-Con have confirmed that Brie Larson has been cast.

Room Oscar-winner Brie Larson is taking the lead as Captain Marvel, marking the first time a woman will play the title character in a Marvel Studios movie. Still, there's one name on their roster that personifies the delightful hokiness of superheroes: Captain Marvel.

In the comics, Danvers first appeared in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 in March 1968, initially as a military security chief. "I love Brie Larson". "Captain Marvel" is set for a 2019 release, two years after DC's "Wonder Woman" will be on the big screen. Larson is clearly thrilled as she tweeted a picture of herself in a Captain Marvel hat at the event with the caption, "Call me Captain Marvel". "As director Paul Feige said previously, "[Captain Marvel's] origins are very much Earthbound, but her adventures and power base come from the cosmic realm", which means she'll fit right in with the increasingly cosmic, magical and extraterrestrial nature of Marvel's upcoming phases.

Captain Marvel is likely to make her Marvel cinematic universe debut in 2018's Avengers 3, though it's always possible she'll cameo in one of the films before that (like Thor: Ragnarok or Black Panther, perhaps in an end credits scene). That role garnered her several accolades including both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for Best Actress.

Kong: Skull Island stars Larson alongside Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Goodman who fly off to a mysterious ancient island where they encounter the giant ape.

Marvel freelancer, Kelly Sue DeConnick, who wrote the Captain Marvel comic book series featuring Carol Danvers from 2012-2015, has often been credited by today's Captain Marvel fans as making the series as popular as it has become. She is also known as Ms. Marvel, the female counterpart of Captain Marvel.
