20Joining: Brie Larson
Brie Larson is already an Academy Award winner, thanks to her powerful work in 2015's Room. She's also a box office star, as evidenced by the success of Kong: Skull Island. In 2019, she can add "superhero" to her list of accomplishments. Larson will play Carol
Danvers in the much-anticipated Captain Marvel, which opens on March 8.
Her casting makes complete sense. She's mega-talented, has a natural likability, and is known off-screen for being a compassionate person who is involved in charities and supports humanitarian causes that make the world a better place. These qualities are true of many of Marvel's biggest stars. Given her high profile, it's probably safe to say that Larson will be a member of the MCU for years to come.
