Ever since Robert Downey Jr was cast as Iron Man, the MCU has been known for casting some of Hollywood’s hottest and brightest stars. One of the latest stars to enter the MCU was Brie Larson who debuted in 2019 as the titular character in Captain Marvel.
Brie Larson recently interviewed with the WWE wrestler Tegan Nox on her YouTube channel. Larson spoke about what led her to take on the role of Carol Danvers and her desire to “create a symbol” for others.
The thing that has just broken my heart open the most has been how many different kinds of people respond to Carol. That, it’s kind of exactly like seeing you (Tegan Nox) wrestle with the star, with why I chose to do the movie, so I was like ‘I want to work really hard to create a symbol that other people can take and wear and feel power in,’ that was it. It wasn’t about me, it was about her and that star and what this means.
