Brie Larson Describes Her Version Of Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel inthe comics

As Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues on, classic characters like Captain America and Iron Man may have to move aside to welcome badass newcomers to the fray. One of the most anticipated new characters is Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, which will make her debut in Avengers: Infinity War, before getting her own solo movie. A superhero of epic proportions, Captain Marvel has a ton of superpowers that make her a compelling character, but how about her personality?

Brie Larson recently appeared on Sci Fi Now Magazine (via reddit), where she revealed more about her iteration of Carol Danvers. She said,

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!

Well this certainly seems like an exciting addition to the MCU. Captain Marvel has a lot to bring to the table, and Brie Larson is a capable actress who will surely breath new light into the universe.

Avengers: Infinity War is actually the perfect time for Captain Marvel to finally show up on the scene. The decorated air force member obtains her superpowers from the cosmos, making her automatically very connected to the workings of the MCU's galactic adventures. With the Guardians of the Galaxy showing up to help with the battle against Thanos, they're going to need every hero they can get ahold of. So Captain Marvel is a major get for the good guys.

Because in addition to being funny and flawed, Captain Marvel is a total badass. The hero has superpowers up the wazoo, and Kevin Feige has stated that she may be the most powerful character in all of the MCU. And considering how much we've seen from behemoths Hulk and Thor, this saying a lot. Traditionally, Captain Marvel's myriad powers include super strength, speed, stamina, flight, near invulnerability, and energy projection and absorption. Homegirl has skills, and I have a feeling that she's going to be saving an Avenger or two when she shows up in the MCU.

Captain Marvel's introduction is also exciting because she'll be one of the first female superheroes to lead her own movie. Captain Marvel will follow Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is technically the first MCU installment to star a female character. So its an exciting time of diversity in the MCU, and now all we need a damn Black Widow movie.

Avengers: Infinity War will fly into theaters on May 4, 2018. Be sure to check out our 2017 release list to plan your next trip to the theater.
