After months of speculation and Kevin Feige saying we’d have our Captain Marvel around the summer time, it looks like it’s getting pretty close as Marvel close in on an actress to fill the role…
Variety are reporting that Oscar winning actress Brie Larson is in early talks for the role and she is Marvel’s clear choice for the part.
No director is currently on board. Marvel, however, had always planned to have an actress lined up early, with the idea of possibly introducing her in one of its upcoming films before its ‘Captain Marvel’ movie bows.
‘Inside Out’ scribe Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman are currently writing the script, which follows Carol Danvers, an air force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the super powers of strength, energy project and flight.
The actress gained great acclaim for her role in the movie Room and, while many feel she’s a little young for the role, we think she’s a great choice as Marvel continue to impress with the quality of acting talent they target for their movies.
