Ever since the lineup was first set for phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe the Captain Marvel movie has been up in the air. With no info on what it would entail and how this would be woven into the current landscape of the MCU. However it was so far away we just had to wait and see. While it was set farther back to make room for the addition of Spidey and Ant-Man sequel, it grows closer and closer upon us every day. We got less than three years now and while to the average film fan that may seem like a while, this is close enough to announce who will be playing the titular character of the coming film.
Most recent Oscar winner for best actress, Brie Larson, has been officially cast as the Captain Marvel of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This has been assumed by many for a while now but in Hall H today it was officially announced that Brie would take up the mantel of the superhero. Larson was always front runner for the slor so I’m sure Marvel is very happy with themselves. As for Brie Larson’s career, it’ll be interesting to see where this leads her. She has only recently become a public name and has already won her first Oscar. So maybe this means she’s gonna stick with some fun Marvel movies and save the other Room type movies for later.
