Brie Larson over Captain Marvel

Captain MarvelBrie Larson werd eerder aangekondigd als degene die de rol van Carol Danvers alias Captain Marvel zal spelen in Avengers: Infinity War. Vervolgens zal ze te zien zijn in haar eigen solofilm in 2019. Larson sprak met IGN over haar optreden in de film:

“I can’t say anything… I feel like this is a big conversation and every day I have people yelling at me on Twitter like you better have long hair, or you better have a mohawk, or you better wear the helmet, or you better not wear the helmet, so someone’s going to be mad.” 

Larson gaf ook aan wat het personage voor haar betekent:

“I find it’s really hard for me to condense what she means to me. I was once a young girl and I was confused by what a hero was and what I wanted to be when I grow up and what was important to me. And so, I think it’s so complicated growing up and to attempt to become a symbol of truth and navigating through all the weird questions of growing up feels so, I’m getting emotional just talking about this, it feels so important to me. When it comes to her, I mean just the fact that she can be a bridge between two worlds, that she can go between Earth and space and that her own personal place is in this little area between where Earth ends and space begins and that’s only hers is so moving to me. I’m just inspired. I’ve been so inspired going through the comics and reading them right now. That’s what I’ve been doing on the side.”

In de comics is Carol Danvers een normale vrouw, die werkt voor de Amerikaanse luchtmacht. Als ze zich in de buurt van een explosie van Kree technologie bevindt, krijgt ze superkrachten en neemt ze de identiteit van Captain Marvel aan. Het scenario wordt geschreven door Nicole Perlman en Meg LeFauve.
