Recently, according to rumours the Captain Marvel actress was being eyed for a role in DC. On the other hand, Brie Larson was demanding higher pay. It seems Marvel is giving into all of Brie Larson’s demands to keep her from crossing over to DC.
Captain Marvel actress, Brie Larson’s role in the MCU may have just reached another high as she will be leading Avengers 5. Though it was more than evident that Brie would bag another lead role in the MCU after her 2019 movie, Captain Marvel did wonders on the box office and grossed $1 billion. She had been demanding equal pay for some time now. But as soon as the rumours (Brie would be going to DC) took over the internet, she got a raise within weeks. It seems Marvel Studios are still bribing Brie Larson to stay for Avengers 5 and more.

As 2020 kick-started, major tabloids started reporting that Brie Larson is demanding more pay for her role in Avengers 5. The actress had already received backlash from Marvel fans ever since she was cast in the role of Captain Marvel for Avengers: Endgame. The fans’ criticism reached new levels when they launched a petition asking Brie Larson to step down as Captain Marvel.
But despite all the criticism, Brie Larson stood strong and demanded equal pay (to her male colleagues) for her superhero role. Soon, Marvel Studios gave a green light to Captain Marvel 2 (which is in production that most probably shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic). With the massive success of Captain Marvel, it seems Marvel is relying on Captain Marvel 2 to keep the title of the top-grossing movie home.
After Avengers, is Brie Larson off to DC?
Amidst all this talk of equal pay and Captain Marvel 2 production, there rose a chatter that Brie Larson is being eyed for Lady Blackhawk, DC. The fact that Marvel fans do not like her for various reasons, led one to think that when push comes to shove, Brie Larson would consider leaving the Avengers for DC. Not only this but the matter of equal pay also added to the list of reasons that made everyone believe Brie would surely make the transition.
It seems Marvel Studios also started believing that Brie Larson would leave the Avengers and go to DC. According to We Got This Covered, Brie Larson’s demand to get more pay has reportedly been met for Avenger 5. If that was not enough as a bribe to keep her inhouse, Marvel Studios have also offered to keep Brie Larson at the forefront in Avengers 5.
Initially, there was a discussion on whether Captain Marvel or Spider-Man would be in the lead in Avengers 5. But now it seems Marvel Studios is hell-bent on keeping Brie Larson from crossing over to DC. Only time will tell if Brie Larson still moves to DC.
