In a recent interview with IGN, Brie Larson sat down to discuss her role in Kong: Skull Island but that didn’t stop the interviewer from asking a bunch of questions about her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain Marvel.
While the Oscar-winning actress was cautious not to give anything away, especially the character’s hairstyle, she did briefly discuss what the character means to her and proved that she’s doing plenty of research.
“I find it’s really hard for me to condense what she means to me. I was once a young girl and I was confused by what a hero was and what I wanted to be when I grew up and what was important to me. And so, I think it’s so complicated growing up and 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. And then when it comes to her, I mean 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. I’m just inspired.”
Captain Marvel is expected to appear in Avengers: Infinity War before getting her own movie in 2019. This will be the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a female lead.
