Kevin Feige Talks 'Captain Marvel,' Female Director And Brie Larson

Brie Larson joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, when it was announced at this year's San Diego Comic-Con in Marvel Studios' Hall-H presentation, as Carol Danvers or what she is called in superhero codenames Captain Marvel. The character will get her film in 2019, so it is in its early days of production, still that has allowed Kevin Feige, head of the studio, to talk about the film.

When asked by Variety about whether it is important to get a female director for Captain Marvel Feige replied, "It is. Having a female director at the helm to tell the story of a woman who is also our most powerful hero by far is very important to us."

He was asked how powerful Carol Danvers - Captain Marvel - is and explained, "If you had the collector cards of the Marvel characters and you could see the power levels, she would be off the charts compared to anyone that we’ve previously introduced in a film."

On why Brie Larson is the perfect fit for Carol, the Marvel Studios head told, "With Captain Marvel, who has powers that approach a level that we haven’t seen before in our films, you need to counter- balance that by finding somebody who is also very human and very relatable and can get into a groove with the audience, where they’re willing to see her fly through the sun and punch a moon away from a spacecraft. At the same time, we need her to land and have relatable flaws.

"Brie is a person you’re going to want to go on this journey with, just like Benedict or Robert or Chris Pratt."

Marvel's Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Air Force One pilot, Carol Danvers, the film is written by Guardians of the Galaxy's Nicole Perlman and Inside Out's Meg LeFauve. It will release March 8, 2019.
