Marvel brought its A game to Comic Con this year. With plenty of new footage and trailers, and a major casting announcement. Brie Larson has officially been cast as Captain Marvel.
Larson, a 26-year-old actress, is a rising name that is known for her roles in 2015’s “Room” and 2012’s “21 Jump Street”. Within those films you can see her ability to act within different genres, which will only help her once she officially arrives on the Marvel sets.
The casting of the character had been expected for some time now, with Larson being the favorite to land the role. The character is expected to be a part of the Infinity War films, which will start filming later this year. So the casting announcement needed to be made, and Marvel officially dropped the news tonight at Comic Con.
Larson brings an acting style that suits the Marvel universe very well. She offers plenty of comedy in her acting, which Marvel will be sure to take full advantage of. But she also can be taken seriously when needed to, with a very smooth transition in style. When all is said and done, she simply fits the Marvel mold.
And she is now on board to fight alongside her fellow heroes, Captain America, Iron Man and the rest of the Avengers as Carol Danvers. Her first appearance as the character will likely come in 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity Wars Part I”. She will then follow that up with her own solo film in 2019 in “Captain Marvel”, which will premiere between the two Inifnity War films.
Before she suits up as Captain Marvel, you can find her fighting King Kong in 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island”.
