The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is one of the most profitable and popular film franchises of all time. As a consequence, anticipation for every movie in this franchise is always at a high level and this is especially the case after the magnificent Avengers: Infinity War.

The next instalment in the MCU is Captain Marvel which will be released in March 2019 and Brie Larson stars as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers in the film. However, as she revealed in an interview to EW, this may not have always been the case.

Captain Marvel

Indeed, Brie Larson discussed the reasons why she almost turned down the role of Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers:

I never saw myself doing something like this, mostly because I like being anonymous, I like disappearing into characters, and I always felt like if I was out in the public eye too much, it potentially limits you in the future.”

However, she eventually did decide to play the character for this reason:

Just seeing a character who says how she feels and says what’s on her mind and doesn’t let people stand in her way is incredibly empowering.”

Another reason why she became so attracted to role was down to the dramatic work she would do in the movie:

That is something that is really exciting to me about this film: We did not cut corners on that stuff. Like, when it’s funny, it is funny, but also when there’s deep emotional things happening, it’s real. So I was able to bring some of those same things that I’ve brought to full dramatic roles into this, which I’m really proud of because I think it will really set this film apart.”
