Brie Larson Talks Creating A Symbol Of Strength For Women In Captain Marvel

Come 2019 we will finally get Marvel Studios' first female-led film in the form of Captain Marvel, which will have Kong: Skull Island star Brie Larson as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel.

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Larson discussed her role, which we will first see in Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War that is currently filming. “I feel a great responsibility,” Larson said. “I want to create this symbol of strength and humour for women that I really wish I had had growing up. It feels so valuable. We need to break through that glass ceiling — women go to the theatre to see a movie with a male lead, and men will go see a film with a female lead. We’re all equals here.”

Captain Marvel is written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman, a director has not been attached although a January 2018 shoot date is in the books so we should be getting an announcement soon of who is helming the project.

Larson can be seen in Kong: Skull Island, which is making headway in box office revenue making close to $400 million already.
