Brie Larson is currently on the press tour for her latest film, Kong: Skull IslandIGN spent a little bit of their time with the Oscar® to ask her about her starring role in Captain Marvel. Larson discusses what the character means to her as Marvel’s bridge between Earth and space, but won’t give away anything about Carol Danvers’ cinematic hairdo.

“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 due in theaters March 8, 2019.
