With the press tour underway for her upcoming film “Kong: Skull Island,” Brie Larson has had plenty of opportunities to talk about another upcoming film — “Captain Marvel.” Larson will play the title character, the super-powered outer-space legacy hero Carol Danvers, in Marvel’s first solo female superhero movie.
Since landing the role, Larson’s been doing a ton of research on Captain Marvel’s lengthy history, and she knows there’s one area that fans are relaly touchy about: her hair. In an interview with IGN, Larson admitted than when it comes to how Carol Danvers wears her hair, there are people that won’t be happy.
“I feel like this is a big conversation,” said Larson. “Every day I have people yelling at me on Twitter like, ‘You better have long hair’ or ‘You better have a mohawk’ or ‘You better wear the helmet’ or ‘You better not wear the helmet.’ Someone’s going to be mad.”
Larson also spoke about Captain Marvel’s larger role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what it means for her, specifically, to be playing a superhero. “I find that it’s really hard for me to condense what she means to me,” said Larson. “I was once a young girl and I didn’t have — I was confused by what a hero was and what I wanted to be when I grew up and what was important to me. So, I think it’s complicated growing up and to attempt to become a symbol of truth and navigating through all the weird questions of growing up feels so — I’m getting emotional talking about it. It feels so important to me.
“And when it comes to [Captain Marvel], just the fact that she can be a bridge between two worlds, that she can go between Earth and she can go to space and that her own personal place is in this little area between where Earth ends and space begins, that that’s hers is so moving to me,” Larson continued. “I’m just inspired. I’ve been so inspired going through the comics and reading them right now. That’s been like what I’m doing on the side.”
You can see Larson doing her research in the Instagram pic below, which she posted back in August.
Brie Larson is expected to debut as Captain Marvel in “Avengers: Infinity War,” arriving May 4, 2018, before headlining her own solo film, set for release on March 8, 2019.
