Brie Larson Hesitated When She Was Offered ‘Captain Marvel’

Brie Larson Captain MarvelIn an interview with the Associated Press, Brie Larson discussed how she decided to accept the role of Captain Marvel and praised Marvel Studios for their handling of the situation.

Though many consider it to be a dream job, playing a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is sure to bring on some big life changes. Larson was very conscious of that when making the choice to become the first big screen Captain Marvel.

“There’s a lot about it that felt like a big decision and it’s not just a big decision for myself, it’s a big decision for my family and my partner and for my friends. It’s a big change for everybody and I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing for me.”

Luckily for Larson, Marvel Studios understood the gravity of the decision.

“I never want to do, make artistic decisions that will feel like a burden or that would take me away from the parts of my life that I find fulfilling so Marvel was super patient and allowed me a lot of time to think it over and then once I felt like I had made the right decision which was doing it I got both feet in and I’m really happy.”
