In 2014, after announcing the Captain Marvel film, Feige had confirmed that the role would be played by a woman.
After months of rumors indicating that she was the leading contender for the role, Marvel made it official during Saturday's panel - and Larson confirmed the casting herself in a separate update on Twitter, too. The character of Danvers first appeared in the comics in 1968. "I love Brie Larson". She now commandeers a pivotal role in Marvel's Civil War II, one that has even Iron Man Tony Stark shaking in his metal boots. It is likely that she will have a cameo in an upcoming Marvel movie, though, before the solo movie comes out, if Marvel continues on in the way they have previously introduced new characters in movies.
Brie's credits include roles in "21 Jump Street" and "Trainwreck" where she was the straight woman to comedians such as Jonah Hill and Amy Schumer.
"Room" actress Brie Larson will be the first heroine to take up the Captain Marvel mantle.
Larson, repped by WME and Authentic Talent and Literary Management, was also in San Diego promoting her other major film, "King Kong: Skull Island", which opens next year. Here are a few reasons why Larson is ideal to play Carol Danvers. Captain Marvel was originally set for release November 2, 2017 but was pushed back a bit to make room for Spider-Man: Homecoming on Marvel's release schedule.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the script will be written by Nicole Perlman of Guardians of the Galaxy and Meg LeFauve of Inside Out fame. Shortly after, Larson herself tweeted, "Call me Captain Marvel". And Marvel's Captain Marvel is also in no way related to DC Comics' Captain Marvel - a magical peer of Superman, whose alter ego is the boy Billy Batson.
