The Marvels may have returned paltry box office numbers, but that does not imply Brie Larson is finished with the role of Captain Marvel in the MCU. Brie Larson has confirmed that her character will make a return in the Marvel Universe.
In a recent interview with ET, the Oscar-winning actress revealed that The Marvels won’t be her last appearance as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. Larson mentioned, “I don’t want Marvel to come for me,” as she shared that there’s something in the works for her in the MCU, though she didn’t reveal specifics.
This puts to rest earlier rumours suggesting she might be hesitant to continue as the Marvel superhero due to online criticism since her MCU debut.
Here is what Brie Said:
I don’t want Marvel to come for me. But there is something. There is definitely something, to answer your question, that I would want to say, but I am not going to. I think there is still so much inside of Carol.
I feel like getting to be on this team just cracked her open in a way that she hadn’t been, and I really loved that for her. I just loved her letting the shoulders drop a little bit, and not need to feel like all the responsibility was on her. So I think that there is just so much more to go.
Brie Larson Is Not Done With MCU Yet
It is not yet clear how and where Brie Larson’s character will make a return in the MCU in future. We may get to see Captain Marvels gracing the screen in the anticipated MCU crossovers, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.
Another possibility would be the cameo appearance of Brie’s Captain Marvel in the Fantastic Four reboot, thus setting the stage for her return in future MCU films.
Brie made her MCU debut in the post-credits scene of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. She has since played Captain Marvel in five MCU films, including cameo appearances in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Ms. Marvel.
The Marvels, directed and co-written by Nia DaCosta, features a cast led by Larson as well as Vellani portraying Kamala Khan and Parris as Captain Monica Rambeau. Both Vellani and Parris made their live-action debuts in Disney+ shows, Ms. Marvel and WandaVision, respectively.
The cosmic-powered trio is joined by a stellar ensemble including Samuel L. Jackson, Zawe Ashton, Park Seo-joon, Tessa Thompson, Lashana Lynch, and others.
Despite having the MCU’s lowest-grossing opening weekend, the film garnered a respectable Audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans particularly praised the chemistry among the lead trio and Vellani’s standout performance.
The Marvels is currently playing in theatres worldwide.
