Larson will play the titular badass in her upcoming standalone film, the first in the MCU to be headlined by a female superhero. Yes, shockingly, it took 20 movies for that to finally happen.
According to EW, Larson's part-human, part-Kree fighter pilot Carol Danvers will already have her superpowers (and maybe a bit of a 'tude) when the movie starts.
"She can't help but be herself," the actress told the magazine. "She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She's also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she's the first one out there and doesn't always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw."
"This is not a superhero who's perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection," added co-director Anna Boden. "But what makes her special is just how human she is. She's funny, but doesn't always tell good jokes. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn't always make the perfect decisions for herself. But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity — and all of its messiness."
The magazine adds that Danvers will start the movie in space, where "she's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander." She'll end up back on Earth, however, to take on the shapeshifting Skrulls, led by Ben Mendelsohn's Talos.
While the film takes place in the '90s, it's sure to have a connection to "Infinity War," which ended with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) paging Danvers for help. Hopefully, she didn't turn to dust too!
"Captain Marvel" hits theaters March 8, 2019.
