Brie Larson in Talks To Play Marvel's Other Captain, Captain Marvel

June 2, 2016


After winning an Academy Award earlier this year for Room, Brie Larson is now in talks to receive a far chintzier human effigy in the form of an action figure available at most major retailers. According to Variety, she's been offered the role of Captain Marvel, an Air Force pilot whose DNA fuses with an alien, granting her powers of super-strength, flight, and energy projection. You know, some pretty standard superhero shit.

Should negotiations work out, Larson would star in a solo Captain Marvel movie in 2019, and would also have to sign the standard Marvel agreement to appear in a bunch of other films that, likewise, are not going to win her a second Oscar but will totally get her an MTV Movie Award for Best Hero.
