Marvel is gearing up for the release of their first female-centric MCU film, Captain Marvel. The film stars Brie Larson as the titular hero and will feature the return of Samuel L. Jackson as S.H.I.E.L.D director, Nick Fury. The film has just begun pre-production but Larson is already discussing where the film is currently at and how excited she is to be playing the iconic Marvel hero.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Larson gave a mysterious statement on if she is already getting prepared for the MCU role.
“I may be getting ready, I may not be getting ready!” Anything I say I feel is hyper analyzed.”
“I mean, I feel pressure in that it’s a character that people love and are inspired by and I see that, and so I want to do right by that. And I want people to feel like their character is honored.”
The conversation then turned to her co-star, Samuel L. Jackson, who discussed what working with Brie Larson is like.
“Hanging out with Brie. Brie’s like, awesome. Brie’s my girl.”
Captain Marvel is set to be one of the more different entries into the MCU as it will be a period piece. Set in the 1990’s, the film will be an origin story for Carol Danvers and will also feature the debut of the classic comic characters, the Skrulls. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has already teased that the Kree-Skrull War will have some impact on the Captain Marvel film. The film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck( Half Nelson) and written by Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve.
Captain Marvel flies into theatres on March 8, 2019.
