Just a few weeks ago we finally got our first details and look at concept art for Marvel Studios upcoming Captain Marvel film. It’s still a while before the film makes it’s way into theaters but actress Brie Larson recently chatted a bit about the project. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the actress briefly commented on the pressures that come with these types of films and making sure that they get it right.
I mean, I feel pressure in that it’s a character that people love and are inspired by and I see that, and so I want to do right by that. And I want people to feel like their character is honored.
As for whether or not she was feeling any additional pressure based on starring in a female-led superhero film following the massive success of DC’s Wonder Woman? Well, let’s just go ahead and say that Larson isn’t sweating it one bit.
Why is there pressure? I don’t understand why there’s pressure put on women as if it’s the most shocking concept ever that a woman can open a movie — it’s like, it’s kind of a tired concept. We’ve proven it for a long time, so I don’t put pressure on in that way at all.
I think she’s got this one guys. Larson will be joined by Samuel L. Jackson, who will be reprising the role of Nick Fury, in the Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck directed film when Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
