Chris Evans wants Brie Larson to play Captain Marvel

Chris Evans wants Brie Larson to play Captain Marvel

"I think she is phenomenal, and I really hope that [casting] happens".

Chris added: "I can not say enough about Brie Larson. We did a movie together back in '09, 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World'".

Larson, after getting things at least slightly straightened out (and relaying that she'd love to play Chris Evans), admits she has no idea who Captain Marvel is before saying, "I guess I gotta start reading the comic book".

"I just heard about that", he said. While it's far from confirmed, if she were to star, the 26-year-old would join a long line of actors who have joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) through the years. She has Captain America's vote, and now Marvel Studios just needs to make it happen. Following the announcement that Brie Larson is first choice to play the superhero, a new report says Niki Caro and Jennifer Kent are among the directors being eyed for the gig, reports the Independent.

HollywoodLifers, do you think Brie is a good choice to play Captain Marvel? The World, here's a music video of Envy Adams taking to the stage (and, yes, that's really Brie Larson singing). Brie is no pampered Hollywood starlet, she's been working hard in the industry for over 15 years to get where she is, and she showed her incredible strength as a powerhouse actress in the film, Room, this year, which deservedly won her an Oscar.

In the comics, Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers, is an Air Force officer whose human DNA fuses with alien Kree genes.

'Captain Marvel' is set for a March 8th, 2019 release! .
