Marvel Cinematic Universe will finally expand into diversifying the types of heroes they have in Phase 3. While the first two Phases failed to feature a female garnered film, even though multiple requests for a Black Widow movie. Captain Marvel will lead this new path for Marvel, and the connotations to this are not lost on actress Brie Larson.
During a recent interview with IGN for the promotion of her new movie Kong: Skull Island with fellow Marvel superstar Tom Hiddleston, the actress noted that taking on the role had a lot of indications of heroism for her fans, especially her young female fans.The actress said:
“I was once a young girl and I was confused by what a hero was, what I wanted to be when I grow up, and what was important to me.To attempt to become a symbol of truth and navigating through all the weird questions of growing up feels so–I’m getting emotional just talking about this–it feels so important to me.”
The actress also discussed at length about how the research she did for the film had left a deep impression in the way she viewed Carol Danvers and her choices as Captain America. Larson said:
“When it comes to [Captain Marvel], just the fact that she can be a bridge between two worlds, that she can go between Earth and space and that her own personal place is in this little area between where Earth ends and space begins and that’s only hers, is so moving to me.”
Captain Marvel is one of the most powerful superheroes that Marvel has ever offered. She is also a character who has seen many changes through the years, taking on many superhero changes which have only proved the continued popularity of the hero in the comics. Apart from having super strength flight, near invulnerability, and the ability to shoot blasts from her hands. She has often been called Marvel’s version of Superman.
