In the wake of the second trailer for Captain Marvel debuting, a new round of interviews with Brie Larson have been released online conducted from the film's set earlier this year.
Larson revealed that acclaimed Captain Marvel comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick served as a consultant on the film, with the actor meeting with her to obtain her blessing to play the part.
"I have to admit that talking with her was so surreal. I feel like I just blacked out. I felt really nervous, because it's this thing that, this woman that she created, that I feel very certain she knows way better than I do," admitted Larson in an interview with Screen Rant. "I just was so honored to receive her blessing, and to see how excited she was. And that felt like a relief to me. Because she pushed this forward, you know? We wouldn't be here without her, really. And I'm so grateful for that character that she created, and now we're just kind of following the breadcrumb trail that she made."
DeConnick had written Captain Marvel from 2012 to 2015 in her solo ongoing series as well as a member of the cast of the team series Avengers Assemble. Last month, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had confirmed the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film was heavily influenced by DeConnick's run on the character.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, and Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace, and Annette Bening in as-yet-undisclosed roles. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
