In a interview with Porter Magazine, Brie Larson revealed that she actually tumbled back and forth with whether or not to take the part of the infamous Carol Danvers, before realizing that a film of that magnitude would provide her with a unique opportunity.
“I spent months thinking about whether or not I was going to do the film,” Larson explained, “and I realised that it was a chance to tell a story on the largest scale possible. I know it is going to make me lose some of the things I love most about my life, but I think it’s worth it.”
Being the cinematic universe’s first female-led solo film, it’s certainly reasonable that Larson would be worried about taking on that large of a task. With the Captain Marvel film set to begin production in February 2018, Brie Larson is gradually coming to terms with how the role will change her life.
Captain Marvel, which will see Carol and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) battling Skrulls in the 1990s, is set to be released in March of 2019. There is a chance that Larson could reprise her role soon after that, with her recently appearing on the set of the much-anticipated Avengers 4.
