According to The Hollywood Reporter, it looks as if best actress Oscar winner Brie Larson is up for the role in Marvel Studio’s upcoming Captain Marvel. I’m sure they’re trying to secure whoever will be taking on the role of Carol Danvers as quickly as possible, since Avengers: Infinity War (Part 1 & 2, yes, they’re not the ACTUAL titles!) start shooting. I’m sure Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers will be popping up before her own solo outing, as to introduce her to fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
No director is currently attached to the Captain Marvel movie as of yet.
If you’d like to get more familiar with Larson’s work, make sure to check out: Trainwreck, The Gambler, 21 Jump Street, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World or check out IMDB for more of her work.
