Fans have been waiting for the longest to find out which actress will be cast in the role of Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, when her movie finally debuts in a few years. Emily Blunt is the name you usually hear when talking about an actress playing the role, and even MMA fighter Ronda Rousey wanted the role at one point. However, it looks like Marvel has their eyes on a specific actress for the role, and it’s neither of them.
According to THR, Larson’s name has been “circling” the film, and it looks like she’s closer to sealing the deal than any other actress has been. In their article, THR makes this statement:
“It is unclear where talks stand with Larson, but sources say she has emerged as the choice for the part. One source says negotiations may be underway.”
Larson can be seen in Scott Pilgrim VS The World and Room. She won an Oscar for her role in the latter, so you can definitely consider her an up and coming A-Lister as of right now. She seems to want the role, so we’ll just have to wait and see if Marvel actually gives it to her.

Captain Marvel is scheduled to release on March 8th, 2019.
