Is Brie Larson out as ‘Captain Marvel’? Who is going to replace her in the MCU? Let’s find out what the controversy is all about.
After working in movies like ‘Room’, ‘Short Term 12′, and ’21 Jump Street’, Brie Larson gained immense popularity through her role as Captain Marvel. But, unfortunately, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel might not be part of the MCU Phase 4. According to the rumours, Disney is apparently losing confidence in Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. The rumour also suggested that Larson could be replaced by any of the actresses appearing on ‘The Mandalorian’. Recently, this was also confirmed by YouTuber Doomcock.

Will Rogue replace Brie Larson and Captain Marvel in the MCU?
In the video, Doomcock said that his agents shared that there is a persistent rumour they have been hearing regarding ‘Captain Marvel’. The rumour is that at some point Rogue will steal Captain Marvel’s powers putting her in a coma and take her place in the MCU. In 2019, Kevin Feige had announced the introduction of ‘X-Men’ into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His source also indicated that they had heard that rumour as well. But there are two viable strategies for ousting Brie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that has been floating around, currently.
Doomcock then went over the two ways through which Brie Larson might get replaced as Captain Marvel or be removed completely from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He spoke about how Brie will shoot for ‘Captain Marvel 2’. But at the end of that film, Captain Marvel will sacrifice herself to save everyone. He expressed how Brie fans will be saddened but placated potentially of the noble sacrifice and this will be a way to bring her back with a more genial and less controversial actress.
As for the second replacement strategy, Doomcock stated, “Brie goes on a trip with a time travel device and simply gets lost never to return“.
“Well, with all the baggage, I’d say it stands a good chance it will happen“, said Doomcock’s source.
Kevin Feige wants ‘Captain Marvel’
In the Youtube video, Doomcock did claim that Kevin Feige still wants ‘Captain Marvel’ in the MCU, but without Brie Larson.
In the video, Doomcock spoke about how Kevin Feige still wants ‘Captain Marvel’ in the MCU. Hence, keeping the character and recasting her is a possibility. He explained that the source indicated that Feige would bring Captain America and Iron Man back, but with different actors playing them. The advantages of this would-be cost-cutting as replacing the characters with actors less pricey than Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans has a certain attraction in these virally impacted fiscal times.
Doomcock also spoke about how replacing the older actors with younger actors would ensure a nice long run before they have to make a swap again.
“So simply switching out Brie Larson at the same time as the rest get swapped, via some kind of alternate universe storyline or other comic book conceit, or simply pulling a Darren Stevens-style swap with no explanation, is always an option”
What is Brie Larson’s ‘Captain Marvel’ controversy?
Despite the success of ‘Captain Marvel’, many fans believe that Larson should have never been cast. Even before ‘Captain Marvel’ released, the film had received many negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. In the end, Rotten Tomatoes had to remove all the comments from their site.
One of the main factors behind such negative remarks was that people felt that Larson, as a social justice warrior, was on a mission to promote herself instead of the film. They also emphasised how the movie was much more into promoting the fact that Captain Marvel is female. They further compared the movie to how ‘Wonder Woman’ took the superior approach and focussed more on the character than her gender.

Marvel has already announced the full list of movies for the Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the studio has not announced when ‘Captain Marvel 2’ will release, though the movie could be out at the beginning of 2022.
