Actor Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), has hinted at the possibility of more adventures for her character after The Marvels. Larson first stepped into the role in 2016 and has reprised it in the recent film, despite its poor box office performance.
In The Marvels, Larson’s character joins forces with Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, the actor expressed her hope that she will return to the hero’s costume in the future. “I think there is still so much inside of Carol. I feel like getting to be on this team just cracked her open in a way that she hadn’t been and I really loved that for her,” Larson said. “She is just a great character to continue to grow with. It’s like, as I am growing she is growing.”
Despite The Marvels’ less-than-stellar box office performance, Larson told Radio Times that she is pleased with the film and the impact the character has had on her life. “I had such an amazing time working with Nia [DaCosta] and Teyonah [Parris] and Iman [Vellani], and it was just a really blissed out time and I’m so happy with what we did. Carol will always be part of me. She changed my life, you know, she changed me. Who I am as a person is forever impacted by her.”
In the film, Carol and Monica team up to investigate an anomaly in space and end up swapping places with each other and Kamala when they use their powers. Together, they must uncover the truth behind the strange occurrence and put a stop to the villainous Dar-Benn.
