Casting ‘Captain Marvel’
‘Captain Marvel’ is a brand new superhero on the big screen. The MCU was looking for an actor who could perfectly fit into the role and portray its most powerful force and that was none other than Academy Award-winning actress, Brie Larson.
Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige, opened up about the idea of pitching Brie for the film. Kevin recalls the moment, “When we found out that Brie Larson might be interested in joining the MCU, we pitched her the idea for the film. She was a huge fan of the character in the comic and one of her highlights of my career at Marvel was introducing her at Comic-Con”.
Why Brie Larson Said No To ‘Captain Marvel’:
Brie is quickly becoming a household name after the release of ‘Captain Marvel’. However, Brie was not known to wider audiences although she had been in the acting world for a long time. During an interview, Brie Larson admitted that she was initially unsure if portraying Carol Danvers in ‘Captain Marvel’ was the right thing for her to do or not. She was scared as being part of Marvel films comes with a ton of extras, and is not just a usual character with other movie roles.
Further, Brie said that being an introvert, the prospect of seeing her face plastered everywhere on the billboards and digital media sort of haunted her.
This was the only reason Brie Larson hesitated to sign the solo movie of Marvel. However, there’s no denying that she must have been proud of her decision for choosing to play Carol Danvers in ‘Captain Marvel’.
