In roughly two years Captain Marvel will make her cinematic debut with actress Brie Larson as the titular heroine.

In an interview with SciFi Now Magazine, Brie Larson discussed her approach to playing the role and what type of Carol Danvers fans can expect to see in the film.

Larson acknowledged that, as with most superhero roles, there will be a segment of fans who will be disappointed with the film’s portrayal of Carol Danvers.

“To be fair, there are a lot of iterations of her, so there’s going to be some people out there who think this isn’t right.”

Larson explained that Captain Marvel will be a unite the earth-bound and cosmic realms of the MCU.

“She’s a believer in truth and justice and she is a bridge between two worlds, between Earth and space.”

Larson described what fans can expect from the MCU version of Captain Marvel.

“She’s fighting between the flaws that are within her and all this good that she wants to try and spread and make the world a better place.’ She can also fly and shoot things out of hands. And She’s really funny!”

Larson explained that the reality of being a part of the MCU family has not entirely set in just yet.

“Being a member of the Marvel family now, it’s still really surreal. I still can’t believe it to be honest, so very ‘pinch me’.”

Many have praised the casting of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel as the perfect choice and fans are eager to see the Academy Award winning actress finally bring the fan-favorite superhero to life. Are you excited to see Brie Larson in the role? Share your thoughts below!

Captain Marvel is scheduled to be released in theater on March 8, 2019.

captain marvelIt’s a good time to be Captain Marvel.

She is one of Marvel’s hottest characters right now, with her own title, as well as features in various Avengers titles. She was even just the lead character in Marvel’s Civil War 2 event, meaning it’s about time she got her own movie. With Brie Larson set to play the heroine in a new Marvel Studios’ film and the search for a woman director ongoing, now news has hit that Captain Marvel will start shooting in January.

While there are still a lot of things up in the air about the movie, a director hasn’t even been announced yet, things are shaping up well. Nicole Perlman, who penned Guardians of the Galaxy, was tapped to write the screenplay for Captain Marvel, so I’m expecting great things.

    Captain Marvel’s MCU Movie, my take: https://redd.it/52zvjw

    I’m pretty excited for this one. Glad things are freshening up in the MCU. Got tired of the original Avengers pretty quick and not into the GoTG stuff. Its cool that they’re going to introduce a classic superhero type (ie can fly, fire energy blasts from her hands, super strength, etc.) They have Vision, sure. But he’s always just kind of there, and doesn’t really do anything lol.
