Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige sat down with Variety to talk about Brie Larson‘s Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel is the most powerful character in Marvel Cinematic Universe, Feige explains why she is so powerful: “If you had the collector cards of the Marvel characters and you could see the power levels, she would be off the charts compared to anyone that we’ve previously introduced in a film.”
He goes on to talk about casting American actress, director, and singer, Brie Larson and explains why she is right for the role:
“With Captain Marvel, who has powers that approach a level that we haven’t seen before in our films, you need to counter- balance that by finding somebody who is also very human and very relatable and can get into a groove with the audience, where they’re willing to see her fly through the sun and punch a moon away from a spacecraft.
At the same time, we need her to land and have relatable flaws. Brie is a person you’re going to want to go on this journey with, just like Benedict or Robert or Chris Pratt.”
Marvel’s first female-led solo film, Captain Marvel is yet to find a director, Feige talks about finding a female director for the project:
“Having a female director at the helm to tell the story of a woman who is also our most powerful hero by far is very important to us,” he concluded.
Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve are scripting the film.
Captain Marvel arrives in theaters on March 8, 2019.
