On the birthday of Brie Larson, let’s discuss all the movies which rejected her before she finally came to the Marvel fame.
As we celebrate Brie Larson’s birthday, we can surely claim that she needs no introduction. Brie Larson has been in the eyes of Cinema lovers for quite long now, and her break in MCU introduced a whole new world of fame to her. But what most of her fans, or even haters, don’t know is the fact that the road to this fame has not been easy on her. Throughout her career, Brie Larson has faced so many rejections, which also includes some Marvel movies, that her popularity now seems undeniably deserving. On her birthday, let us have a look at all those big movies that rejected Brie Larson, and yet like the invincible superhero she is in MCU, she fought and won the battle.
On Brie Larson’s birthday, let’s discuss all the big movies that rejected her and then regretted it.

Big movies that rejected Brie Larson – Birthday Special.
Since Brie Larson won The Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Room (2016) and was chosen to portray one of the most powerful superheroes in MCU i.e. Captain Marvel, suddenly everyone on this planet, and other planets as well, seems to know her.
Before these achievements also she has had a long and decent career with various Movies and TV shows like Short Term 12 (2013). 21 Jump Street (2012), Hoot (2006), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010).
Yet, she suffered many rejections. And several of them were for the same franchise or studios that chose her later to lead their biggest franchise.
In one of the recent videos uploaded by Brie Larson on her YouTube channel, she shared a list of movies that she auditioned for but faced rejections. So, on her birthday, we will be discussing the big movies that rejected Brie Larson back when it was not her time.
Everybody knows the Terminator franchise, and how popular it is around the world. Back in the decade Brie auditioned for Terminator and was rejected, as confessed by herself. She said “I tested for it, while I was pulling into the audition for it, I got a flat tire. I did my audition, and a couple of days later I found out that I didn’t get a job.” It happens Brie – don’t be sad, you’ll be a big star one day.
All the Star Wars movies
Brie left no opportunity unattended. She revealed in her video that she auditioned for all the new Star Wars movies. And – “I didn’t get it”.
Who would have thought that Brie Larson will lead the next big franchise a few years later?
Hunger Games and Tomorrowland
Brie auditioned for two of the most loved Sci-fi/adventure movies i.e. Tomorrowland: A World Beyond, and The Hunger Games. Unfortunately, both the movies rejected her. Their bad luck.
The Big Bang Theory
Yes, it isn’t a movie, but indeed something worth mentioning. Brie Larson auditioned for The Big Bang Theory, and as per her, she faced rejection because she was too young. And she states – “Which was true”.
Iron Man 2
Though we are sure Brie must have been lucky to not end up getting Iron Man 2, as she grabbed the chance to become Captain Marvel later in the MCU. But if what we guess is right, the only character Brie could have auditioned for in Iron Man 2 was of Agent Natasha Romanoff, aka Black Widow. So, instead of Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson would have been Black Widow in an alternate scenario.
Here’s another MCU movie on the list that rejected Brie Larson. And to our guess, she was there to audition for the role of Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) love interest, eventually played by Natalie Portman. So, if in case Brie was selected for the job, she would have been preparing to become Lady Thor and not Captain Marvel.
Brie was rejected after auditioning for Transformers 2 as well. But she doesn’t remember it anymore. As she reacted to it in her video by laughing at it and saying, “I forgot I auditioned for that.”
Yep. Seems like Brie Larson has been rejected from almost all the projects that might have been a dream project. James Cameron’s epic fantasy Avatar was one of the biggest movies she auditioned for and got rejected.
“It’s a lot of heartbreak folks – here I’m, still standing”. This list, even though contains all the rejections, means praises for Brie Larson on her birthday. We can be nothing more but proud of her for never giving up, and being true Captain Marvel well before she was actually cast as one.
Brie Larson has indeed been Captain Marvel throughout her life, or else how could one face so many rejections.
