Larson's casting in the role was announced at the tail end of Saturday night's Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
“The rumors of Brie Larson being the favorite of Marvel Studios to play Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel have been circulating since last month (I weighed in on my feelings about the casting, as did Captain America himself Chris Evans)–and now Marvel themselves have put those rumors to rest.
Larson’s casting in the role was announced at the tail end of Saturday night’s Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con, as Marvel actors both new and old (including the casts of Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Doctor Strange) all came out on stage to take one group photo.
President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige mentioned they had to bring out the newest addition to the Marvel cast too: Brie Larson as Captain Marvel! You can watch a clip of the official announcement on stage at Hall H below.”
