Captain Marvel inches ever closer to her eagerly anticipated big-screen debut in “Avengers: Infinity War,” Oscar winner Brie Larson has offered some clues as to what fans can expect from her portrayal of Carol Danvers.
“To be fair, there are a lot of iterations of her, so there’s going to be some people out there who think this isn’t right,” she told SciFiNow magazine. “She’s a believer in truth and justice and she is a bridge between two worlds, between Earth and space. She’s fighting between the flaws that are within her and all this good that she wants to try and spread and make the world a better place. She can also fly and shoot things out of her hands. And she’s really funny!”
Little is known about the “Captain Marvel” solo film, targeted for release in 2019. The Marvel Studios project has screenwriters, Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve, but still no director. Current reports suggest the movie will be an origin story. Samuel L. Jackson has also hinted that Nick Fury might appear.
Larson debuts as Captain Marvel in “Avengers: Infinity War,” which arrives in theaters May 4, 2018.
