Brie Larson in the lead for Captain Marvel


Things are going well for Brie Larson. She got that Oscar thing last year and now it looks like she’ll be landing one of those coveted superhero role things. Those tend to make actors a lot of  money. Larson is reportedly the front runner for the role of Marvel’s first female-centered film,Captain Marvel. While nothing is confirmed Variety reports that the actress is leaning towards accepting the gig and she is Marvel’s first choice for the role.

As casting goes I like this one. Larson obviously has the acting chops, but more importantly the casting lends to more thoughtful and character-driven film. While there’s still no director attached to the movie Inside Out‘s scribe Meg LeFauve and Guardians of the Galaxy write Nicole Perlman are currently developing the screenplay

Any big Captain Marvel fans out there? What do you think of the casting?
