AceShowbiz - Brie Larson has started preparing for her role as the titular superheroine in Marvel's first female-centric superhero movie "Captain Marvel". The Oscar-winning actress, whose character Carol Danvers is also an exceptional espionage agent, pilot, hand-to-hand combatant and markswoman, was spotted earlier on Thursday, January 18 visiting the Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Larson was meeting with soldiers while wearing a full flight costume which had a name tag that read "Brie Larson," not "Carol Danvers," meaning that she was there simply to take a tour and not to film anything for the movie. The folks over at Omega Underground have also revealed that Larson will begin shooting on or around March 26.
In the comics, Carol Danvers serves in the U.S. Air Force as an officer and Security Chief of a restricted military base. Making her first appearance as the member of the U.S. Air Force in "Marvel Super-Heroes" #3 before debuting as the first incarnation of Ms. Marvel in "Ms. Marvel" #1, she has been labeled "Marvel's biggest female hero," a "feminist icon" and "quite possibly Marvel's mightiest Avenger."
Rumor has it that before starring in her own solo movie in early 2019, Larson will make her debut as Danvers in the third "Avengers" movie, "Avengers: Infinity War", which is coming to theaters across the nation on May 4 this year. She will have a more prominent role in the yet-to-be-titled "Avengers 4", which is currently in post-production and is due out on May 3 next year.
"Captain Marvel" will be directed by "Mississippi Grind" helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, with a script provided by Geneva Robertson-Dworet ("Tomb Raider", "Gotham City Sirens"). Aside from Larson, starring in "Captain Marvel" will be Jude Law as Walter Lawson a.k.a. Mar-Vell, Ben Mendelsohn in a villainous role, DeWanda Wise as Monica, and Samuel L. Jackson, who is reprising his role as Nick Fury.
