Brie Larson: Captain Marvel “Is A Great Symbol For Girls Everwhere”

At San Diego Comic-Con International 2016, Brie Larson was officially announced as Captain Marvel. Since then, she’s been very vocal regarding her thoughts on the role.

In a recent interview with Space Channel, Larson talked about the importance of the role.

“I’m realizing what a deficit we have that we don’t have more of those [female superheroes] ,” she said. “I think it’s really cool to see a girl in a Batman costume or Spiderman costume, but I’m really excited that there’s a symbol of women. I think that’s really important.”

She then talked about the part social media has played in the casting.

“You know, the thing that’s been most exciting is like on social media, I get sent a lot of pictures of young girls in the Captain Marvel costume. I’m excited to see more of that.”
