Actress Brie Larson has been announced but has yet to make her debut as Carol Danvers (aka. Captain Marvel) in next year’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and her own solo movie in 2019.
Larson, currently out doing “Kong: Skull Island” press, spoke with IGN about the expectations fans have for the character – right down to her hairstyle:
“I can’t say anything… I feel like this is a big conversation and every day I have people yelling at me on Twitter like you better have long hair, or you better have a mohawk, or you better wear the helmet, or you better not wear the helmet, so someone’s going to be mad.”
The actress also discussed what the character means to her:
“I find it’s really hard for me to condense what she means to me. I was once a young girl and I was confused by what a hero was and what I wanted to be when I grow up and what was important to me. And so, I think it’s so complicated growing up and to attempt to become a symbol of truth and navigating through all the weird questions of growing up feels so, I’m getting emotional just talking about this, it feels so important to me.
When it comes to her, I mean just the fact that she can be a bridge between two worlds, that she can go between Earth and space and that her own personal place is in this little area between where Earth ends and space begins and that’s only hers is so moving to me. I’m just inspired. I’ve been so inspired going through the comics and reading them right now. That’s what I’ve been doing on the side.”
Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve are penning the standalone “Captain Marvel” film which will hit cinemas on March 8th 2019.
