It looks like Brie Larson is the pick to play Captain Marvel and her alter ego, Carol Danvers, in the Marvel Cinematic production of Captain Marvel, coming out in 2019. Lots of kick-ass actresses were circling the part — and WOW, what an awesome part this is gonna be — but Larson got the golden ticket.
Sources tell Variety Larson is in early talks to play Captain Marvel, one of Marvel’s most popular female superheroes, in an upcoming standalone film. It’s unknown where negotiations stand, but sources have told Variety that Larson is their first choice, and that she’s leaning toward playing the part….“Inside Out” scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman are currently writing the script, which follows Carol Danvers, an air force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the super powers of strength, energy project and flight.
The Room Oscar winner has been a rumored contender for months and now flies ahead of Emily Blunt and Olivia Wilde, who have been fan favorites for the role. The film is scheduled for release March 8, 2019, with a script by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman & Inside Out co-writer Meg LeFauve. No director has been announced.
Nice! Now, all we wanna know is this….when the heck does Black Widow get her solo film?
