This year’s Oscar Best Actress winner for her remarkable performance in Room may be on the verge of headlining Marvel Studios first female-led big screen effort.

According to a report in Variety, Brie Larson is in early negotiations to play the role of Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in the studio’s solo launch of the character. She is apparently the first choice and is leaning towards taking the part. If this shakes out, it’ll be a huge get for the studio. Larson is basically great in everything, and honestly, it’s hard for me to think of anyone better suited for the role. The chops here are off the charts.

This would be Larson’s second comic book role, following her turn as Envy Adams in Scott Pilgrim vs The World. There’s no director on-board as of yet, but we’ve been expecting an announcement on that front to come hand in hand with the star this summer. Meg LeFauve who penned the *outstanding* Inside Out has teamed with Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter Nicole Perlman on the script.

The film is scheduled to arrive in 2019.


  1. YES. Though Larson is also my dream pick for Doreen, I would gladly support her as Captain Marvel as well. <3 I loved her in Short Term 12.



    Wow, like yaaayyy, IMso glad for her… Wow, she’s like negotiations, it sounds so important, and meaningful for her, and me reading this article. I hope it is successful and positive. I pray for her, and my Marvel stock that I wish I would had bougth back in 2001 when I noticed it healing, but my job was outsourced multiple times, and people were feeling entitled to ‘out’ me as ‘gay’ since there is nothing on TV that shows anyone as attractive or acceptable that is like me, and I am not into being a bigot, or obsessing on who is ‘liberal’ or ‘conservative’, and I dont like to use facebook or twiter and track trival sh!+e that makes up the lives of fake ‘Americans’ in this fake ‘country’ so I just hope that their stock is great, especially since in my last job I got fired after I contacted HR that my boss repeatedly would get off literally talking to me like Im a dog, but since I was a contractor, and it is an “employment at will state” they can fire me at any time, so the only job recruiters that exist apparently are from India for when it coimes to finding work in America for Americans, so yeah I will just keep ‘doing what it takes’, and ‘work hard for a company and give head one day’, and sit in more traffic… Good for Brie.IDENTITY.
