Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel Will Be A Feminist Role Model
Brie has opened up about joining the Avengers.
Brie Larson has been talking up her upcoming superhero flick Captain Marvel, and revealed the pressure that goes along with heading up Marvel’s first female-focused movie. And from the sounds of it, the Captain is going to be the MCU’s first feminist icon…
“I feel a great responsibility," said Larson. "I want to create this symbol of strength and humour for women that I really wish I had had growing up. It feels so valuable.”
"We need to break through that glass ceiling — women go to the theatre to see a movie with a male lead, and men will go see a film with a female lead. We're all equals here.”
Yassssss! At the moment, Larson’s casting is pretty much the only thing we know about the production, which still doesn’t have a director attached, but it sounds like the star knows what she wants from the project.
It’s been suggested that Larson might make an early appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, but nothing has been confirmed on that score just yet. In the meantime, we’ll just have to be patient until her solo movie eventually drops on 8 March 2019.
