Brie Larson Opens Up About Playing The Role Of Captain Marvel
In addition to the critically-acclaimed Room, Larson has appeared in a litany of roles in film and television. She appeared as supporting characters in movies like Greenberg, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, 21 Jump Street, and Don Jon and had regular roles in the sitcoms Raising Dad and United States of Tara. More recently, she had a starring role as Mason Weaver in the monster movie Kong: Skull Island.
With a resume like this, joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe seemed like a logical progression, but the actress made it clear that it wasn’t a choice she made lightly. According to Superherohype, Larson said the following to Vanity Fair:
“It took me a really long time,” Larson told the magazine. “I had to sit with myself, think about my life and what I want out of it. Ultimately, I couldn’t deny the fact that this movie is everything I care about, everything that’s progressive and important and meaningful, and a symbol I wished I would’ve had growing up. I really, really feel like it’s worth it if it can bring understanding and confidence to young women—I’ll do it.
She continued, “They’ve been very open to hearing my thoughts and my take on it, which has been great.
