Rumored last month, it has now been confirmed that Oscar winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Trainwreck”) is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the role of Captain Marvel.
The story 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 and flight.
No director is currently on board the project but “Inside Out” scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman are writing the script while Kevin Feige is producing.
