The Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson (Room, 21 Jump Street, Rachel in Community TV series) is confirmed to play the iconic female superhero Captain Marvel as part of Phase 3 of Marvel cinematic universe. She will make her debut in Avengers Infinity War. There is also a standalone movie in the works which is based on Captain Marvel; its screenplay will be written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman (of Guardians of the Galaxy fame). Kevin Feige (the head of Marvel Studios) said in a recent interview that Captain Marvel would be the “most powerful” superhero in the Marvel universe. There is a possibility that she will replace Captain America and assume a leadership role in Phase 4 of MCU.
Carol Danvers is an airforce pilot who met with a major accident that led to her DNA getting mixed with an alien which gave her super-strength. The Marvel Studios is planning to give an entirely different origin story to Captain Marvel. The studio believes the character’s origin story has striking similarities to Green Lantern (Hell Jordan). In the most recent comic-book version, Carol Danvers was caught in a giant explosion with the Creed device that infused her with cosmic energy. It is speculated that we may see an Infinity gem that will mark her transition from an airforce pilot to a superhero.
She is also famous for being a female superhero who aggressively fight for equal pay for women. On a power level, she will be off the charts from anyone we have ever seen, imagine Vision & Scarlett Witch being one super being. In comics, she is popularly known as Wonder Woman of Marvel universe. The question now is – Will Captain Marvel be an all-powerful alien-god figure in the MCU akin to Man of Steel? Well, the evidence is plenty to support that theory. #GirlPower
