The Academy Award winner spoke to SciFi Now Magazine on taking on the Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel role, particularly about her personality, characterization and what’s to come.
“To be fair, there are a lot of iterations of her, so there’s going to be some people there who think this isn’t right. She’s a believer in truth and justice and she is a bridge between Earth and space. She’s fighting between the flaws that are within her and all this good that she wants to try and spread and make the world a better place. She can also fly and shoot things out of her hands. And she’s really funny!”
The role is starting to sink in for Larson.
“Now I feel that I love connecting with other humans and I feel a deep sense of that. Being a Marvel family member now, it’s still really surreal. I still can’t believe it to be honest, so very ‘pinch me.'”
Larson will have plenty of time to endear herself to the MCU fans. Perhaps with any luck, we may see her in the Infinity War. One thing’s for sure, we won’t see the MCU‘s first female solo superhero until March 2019.
