Marvel's Captain Marvel doesn't come out until 2019 and it still has yet to find a director, but that's not stopping Brie Larson from preparing for the role and talking about it. Larson is set to play Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, in the film, and this is the first film in the MCU that will focus on a female superhero.
The character is expected to make her big screen debut in Avengers: Infinity War, which is currently shooting. There's no confirmation that she will be in the film yet, but we know it's a strong possibility.
While talking to IGN, the actress expressed her feelings about how important the character is to her. She seems very passionate and sincere when talking about taking on this role and in the process explained that the character will be a bridge between two worlds.
“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.”
Captain Marvel is sure to inspire a new generation of young girls. I have two young girls of my own, and it's always nice when they find female superheroes that they can look up to and admire. When talking about Captain Marvel's appearance, she says that it won't please everyone. She explains:
“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.”
Ya gotta love those rabid fans! The one thing those kinds of fans have to understand is that Marvel has yet to let us down on the costume and superhero designs of their films. They always get it right, and I imagine that will be the same for Captain Marvel.
The movie is currently be written by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LaFauve (The Good Dinosaur). It's set to be released on March 8th, 2019.
