This Is Why Brie Larson Cares So Much About Her ‘Captain Marvel’ Role

Entertainment Weekly caught up with Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson, and got her to talk a bit on why she thinks the role is so important.

“It feels like such a weight off my shoulders because I really don’t like keeping secrets, and the response was really positive, and that felt really cool. I mean, making movies is hard, and making films of that size is even harder. It requires so much physically, and it’s a lot longer shoot, and there’s also the pressure because this is a character that is incredibly inspiring to people and means a lot. So you just want to get it right. I feel really excited about how everything is shaping up.”

Captain Marvel will be set in the 1990s, and is confirmed to feature Nick Fury. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck with a script written by Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve, the picture will see Carol Danvers’ first ever film. March 8, 2019 is the release date.
