Brie Larson is Captain Marvel
« on: July 25, 2016, 02:15:22 AM »
Captain Marvel is finally cast as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.  Figured there is no thread yet but start now.  Marvel's first female lead film is finally cast with Oscar winner Brie Larson.  Probably lost in all the Comic Con announcements but this one on slate for March 2019.

Great casting. She's incredible, looks the part, and brings instant credibility.
Maybe the real deep state was the friends we made along the way.

Indeed, while not my first choice she is def a great pick. So far the only real complaint I'm hearing on her is the same we got with Gal as WW, "To skinny, needs to buff up." etc.

I like the casting.  Guess it has been rumored but I haven't paid attention - just curious Cletus, who would you have put above her?

My top 2 picks were Katee Sackhoff and Emily Blunt.

Doesn't Katee Sackhoff do direct to digital horror sci-fi crap now? I don't think she's going to be headlining any blockbuster franchises anytime soon. :P

She's on something called Longmire which is apparently on its fifth season, but your point still stands.

It was more of a personal choice from back when BSG was on that I thought of her for the role, and was more of she just fits the look perfectly, wasn't really thinking in terms of star power/box office draw or such....but it's not like it'd be a first time they did something like that, I mean RDJ fit the Stark mold perfectly but he wasn't exactly a box office stud at the time, and at this point the $$$ is gonna come for all Marvel properties, just a matter of how big. I imagine there is a great deal of pressure on this one to do extra good being the first female led film so probably better with this choice.

I love Brie, but she doesn't scream action hero to me.

I personally liked Yvonne Strahovski for this.

If Ronda Rousey could act she would have been perfect.

I like Brie for the role. And let's not pretend that Chris Evans, RDJ and Mark Ruffalo screamed action hero.

I second this. Yvonne would have been great.

Just saw Brie and I have to say, she fits the part. Sure, she's not "buff" like others, however, maybe that's half the point? Having people who lean more towards the "normal" body types?

Here's hoping this movie is good. That's all I want. More good movies.

Only argument of sense for her needing to be more buffed is her back story as a former jet fighter pilot, but it's not something that would make or break anything for me.

That could actually just have her looking more athletic, not necessarily buff. I think as more time goes on, she would buff up.

I don't know if I love Skrulls being in it simply because there's going to be the inevitable "Are you really who you say you are?" storyline at some point in the film followed by the 'shocking' moment when we find out that somebody isn't who they say they are.

Disney has kept the character Jude Law is playing under wraps.  Their website posted who he is the other day before taking it down.

Spoiler: show
He will be Mar-Vell, as many anticipated

My friend was asking me if I wanted to see this with him and the entire time I was thinking he was talking about Shazam. For the record I want to see both movies, but it was a fun 2 minutes of confusion around me saying "it looks pretty funny" before we figured out we were talking about different movies.
