We've known that Captain Marvel was on the way for a while now, but we finally got our first look at Oscar-winner Brie Larson in the costume during Marvel's Hall H presentation. We have a few details on the movie, but most of it is still shrouded in mystery and likely will stay that way for some time. Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Larson about her new movie The Glass House and asked her about the big reveal.
"It feels like such a weight off my shoulders because I really don't like keeping secrets. And the response was really positive, and that felt really cool. I mean, making movies is hard, and making films of that size is even harder. It requires so much physically, and it's a lot longer shoot, and there's also the pressure because this is a character that is incredibly inspiring to people and means a lot. So you just want to get it right. I feel really excited about how everything is shaping up."
Larson seems to really understand how important this character is to fans and wants to make sure that she does Carol justice. She seems to have that same level of love for Captain Marvel that Gal Gadot seems to have for Wonder Woman, and we've seen how well that worked out.
Captain Marvel is rumored to start filming in early 2018, so we can expect to learn a lot more about the movie once filming starts. Until then, it sounds like the everyone involved with this project has their heart in the right place — and a lot of good things can come from a project with sincere passion behind it.
Captain Marvel, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and will also star Samuel L. Jackson. The film is set for release on March 8th, 2019.
