The Marvels star Brie Larson has revealed that the evolution of Captain Marvel’s powers means she flies a lot more in the upcoming sequel, though it did present the actress with some unique challenges.
We first met Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers in 2019’s Captain Marvel, though Marvel Studios wasted no time bringing her into the Avengers franchise. Despite that, the hero played a relatively minor role in both Infinity War and Endgame, while a cameo in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings did little to explain Carol Danvers’ place in the present-day MCU. That all looks set to change with The Marvels, something that was evident from the Avenger’s unexpected arrival in Kamala Khan’s bedroom in Ms. Marvel.
Carol’s powers have also evolved since we first met her and, during a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Oscar-winner explained the challenges of now having to take flight. That’s an ability she unlocked during Captain Marvel‘s final act, and while the character has mastered it over decades, it was a learning curve for Larson.
