We at DKODING live and breathe superheroes — latest scoops, rumors, plots, or announcement — we love to present them with a twist. From comic mythology to latest movie and TV show developments, we trace our superheroes’ journeys to the next dimension and back!
This special edition of DKODING Superheroes features a special “Know-It-All” web of stories on Captain Marvel, tracing the Marvel Studios’ namesake hero’s journey from the comic book ocean to the MCU. Portrayed by Academy Award-winning actor Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is Marvel Cinematic Universe’s [MCU] first live-action female superhero. Her box office debut culminated in a massive $1.1 billion rise in the studio’s fortune and took Marvel fandom by storm.
In this edition, we dive deeper into Marvel mythology of the character, chalking her path right up to to the upcoming Captain Marvel 2. For a holistic look at Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel we have taken into account three factors:
- Captain Marvel and actor Brie Larson – We uncover the mythos of Carol Danvers and reasons as to why the studio chose Larson as central to MCU’s future.
- Captain Marvel’s Powers – We dive into all the mighty powers and weaknesses attached to Carol Danvers. Also, what happens when she goes against certain all-powerful, supposedly invincible characters (just like her!), the likes of Thanos, Thor and Scarlett Witch? We present in-depth analysis from these hypothetical ‘titanic showdowns’.
- All about Captain Marvel 2 – Set for a 2022 release, the Captain Marvel sequel has already brought feminism at the forefront. Here’s decoding further the cast, plot, villains, theories and rumors for Brie Larson and Carol Danvers’ next adventure.
The Captain Marvel and Brie Larson Love Affair
Brie Larson was announced as Captain Marvel in 2016’s San Diego Comic-con by Studio Head Kevin Feige. Her debut came at a critical time in the MCU when the Infinity Saga was culminating. But the grand success of her standalone movie proved Marvel’s bet right. Brie Larson’s journey as Captain Marvel is as intriguing as the character’s journey.
Here’s a snapshot of not only Larson’s journey but Captain Marvel’s as well, from comic book pages to the big screen:
Carol Danvers’ Powers and Weaknesses
Did you know that in comic at one point of time, Carol Danvers turned an alcoholic to cope with her trauma? Or that she had the split personality disorder? Or how she goes Binary [or what does that even mean]?
As powerful as Carol Danvers is, there are weaknesses that make her extremely relatable to our vulnerable human minds. And when talking about her powers, we bet you haven’t even scratched the surface yet!
