Brie Larson Emerges As Captain Marvel Frontrunner

Room was one of the best movies of last year and now it’s looking like star Brie Larson is going to join the world of blockbusters. At the moment Heroic Hollywood, Variety, and The Hollywood Reporter are reporting that Larson is circling the role. Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers would be the first female lead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

They are also looking for a female director as well and the names currently in circulation are Niki Caro (Whale Rider, McFarland, USA) and Jennifer Kent (The Babadook).

Whether any of these names pan out is still up in the air but Larson would be an excellent choice for Carol Danvers. The current rumor is that we’re going to find out the Captain Marvel casting sometime during the summer.
