Ever since the Captain Marvel film was announced as part of Marvel’s phase 3 the rumour have been flying all over the place as to who would play Carol Danvers. From Katie Sackhoff to Chloe Grace Moretz, almost any blonde woman with acting ability was thrown into the mix.
Among the many, many revelations coming out of SDCC 2016 was, finally, the casting of Captain Marvel!
Oscar winner Brie Larson will be our Ms Danvers!
Larson was one of the rumoured contenders for the role and the announcement on Marvel’s panel at SDCC was met with a great reception!
Even though she has already had huge success with films like Room and an appearance in Scott Pilgrim vs The World, among many other roles, joining the MCU will be a huge challenge, especially filling the space boots of a much loved character with a long comic history.
Going toe-to-toe with characters like Iron Man and Captain America will be tricky but Captain Marvel will be integral to the expanded universe fight when it goes cosmic over the next few years! Expect to see her pop up in Infinity War: Part 1 and probably Part 2 as well.
