In an interview at D23 Expo, Brie Larson may have cast doubt on her MCU future, questioning whether fans want her back as Captain Marvel.
Brie Larson made her MCU debut in 2019’s Captain Marvel, going on to appear in Avengers: Endgame and in post-credits scenes for Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings and Ms. Marvel. She is due to make her next appearance as Carol Danvers in next year’s The Marvels.
However, when asked about future appearances during her appearance at D23, Larson questioned her future as Captain Marvel in the MCU.
Brie Larson’s MCU Future
Since her casting as Captain Marvel, Brie Larson has been subject to harassment and trolling from certain corners of the internet. The actress appeared to call this out in an interview with Variety.
Speaking on the carpet at D23 Expo, Brie Larson was asked about her future as Captain Marvel, to which she responded “I don’t know. Does anyone want me to do it again?”
After the interviewer then said “Don’t be so modest,” Larson would only say “I really don’t know. I don’t know the answer to that.”
Brie Larson’s words appear to nod to the disproportionate level of trolling she has faced during her time in the role. However, despite unacceptable misogynistic harassment from some online commenters, the actress has accrued a loyal band of fans since she entered the MCU. Many are excited to see where she takes Carol Danvers next.
The Marvels will reportedly pick up right where Ms. Marvel left off and will see Larson’s Carol Danvers teaming up with Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau. Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury will also return in the movie.
Brie Larson most recently appeared as Captain Marvel in the post-credits scene of the Ms. Marvel finale on Disney Plus. Here’s the synopsis for that series:
Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel” is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?
The series stars Iman Vellani, Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Matt Lintz, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Fawad Khan, Mehwish Hayat, and Farhan Akhtar. Episodes of the series were directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with Bisha K. Ali serving as the head writer. Marvel’s Kevin Feige is involved in the series as an executive producer.
Ms. Marvel is now streaming on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the future of Brie Larson in the MCU and The Marvels, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more original video content.
