Confirmed: Brie Larson is Captain Marvel!
Marvel StudiosÂ officially confirmed at their San Diego Comic-Con panel that Brie Larson (Room, Short Term 12, Kong: Skull Island) will star as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, in their upcoming feature film!
In the regular Marvel Comics continuity, Carol Danvers made her first appearance in 1968â€™s â€śMarvel Super-Heroesâ€ť #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed Â into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after beingÂ â€śpromotedâ€ť to the moniker of the former KreeÂ superhero.
Little is known regardingÂ Marvelâ€™sÂ specific plans forÂ Captain MarvelÂ outside of the fact that the film will feature the Danvers version of the character. It was confirmed last yearÂ that a Captain Marvel cameo was, at one point, part of the script for Joss Whedonâ€™s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige explained that the decision was ultimately made not to rush her appearance. It was also recently reportedÂ that Captain Marvel will make her debut in Joe and Anthony Russoâ€™s Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to begin production in November. The first part of Infinity WarÂ is scheduled to hit the big screen May 4, 2018 with the second half following on May 3, 2019. Between those two films will beÂ Captain Marvel, which arrives March 8, 2019.
Brie Larson is no stranger to comic book adaptations. She played Envy Adams in Edgar Wrightâ€™s Scott Pilgrim vs the World.
