After months of rumours and speculation, Marvel has finally confirmed Brie Larson as the actress selected to play Captain Marvel.

Finally! We have a name!

Marvel Studios brought Larson out on stage at San Diego Comic-Con before announcing she will play the role of the female superhero, Wired reported.

The actress who appeared in 21 Jump Street and just wrapped up Kong: Skull Island, has been rumoured to be up for role for some time, and even has ‘Captain Marvel’ written on her IMDB page.


Aside from introducing Larson as the superhero, Marvel didn’t offer up any more details about the character or her solo movie.

The actress took to Twitter to celebrate the announcement by posting a picture of herself with a Marvel Studios hat and the caption: “Call me Captain Marvel”.

The first Captain Marvel movie was originally scheduled to be released in July 2018 but was pushed back to March 2019 to make way for the Ant-Man sequel.

Do you think Larson will make a great Captain Marvel?
