Welcome to the age of Captain Marvel. The addition of a new poster and launch of a second trailer means we’re now full speed ahead to the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Today, set interviews with Brie Larson are being published and the star had plenty of great things to say about the film and her role in it.
There has been some concern that we’re only seeing one side of Carol Danvers’ (Larson) personality in the footage released thus far. I’ve maintained that there is a narrative purpose to this, as the trailers clearly suggest that Danvers is on a path to rediscover who she is. The only part of herself she knows right now, as far as we can see, is what makes her a “noble warrior hero” of the Kree.
As Danvers remembers more of the life she had on Earth, we will see more of her natural, multi-dimensional personality return to her. This is Marvel Studios and there will be comedy, including quips from the most powerful hero in the MCU.
“I will say that this character is probably the most dynamic character that I’ve ever played, there’s the most range,” Larson said on set, as reported by SlashFilm. “As of now, and we’ll see what the movie is, but as of now, it’s been the most range I’ve ever played in a character.
“From I’ve had to go through every emotion possible with her. And a lot of this movie, although it has great comedy in it, there’s also real depth to it and emotion. So I think that the film will have a lot. Which for me, that’s what I want. I wanna see complicated female characters. I wanna see myself, which is not a simple person. I surprise myself constantly by what’s happening and what’s coming up. So hopefully that’s what comes out on screen.”
Anyone who’s been reading Captain Marvel comics, especially within the last six years, know the trailers are barely scratching the surface of just how incredible of a character Carol Danvers is. We can trust Larson and Marvel Studios to deliver a faithful portrayal of the character. Moviegoers will be quick to sign up for the Carol Corps when Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8.
