Brie Larson is the frontrunner to play ‘Captain Marvel’



  • Variety reports that Brie Larson is the frontrunner to play Carol Danvers.

  • They're coming to an agreement, with Marvel wanting her to take the role and Larson “leaning” towards accepting it.

  • The plan was always to cast the lead before the director because Carol will make her debut before her solo film, probably on the next Avengers movie.

  • The Hollywood Reporter is also reporting that Jennifer Kent and Niki Caro are among the contenders to direct the film.
