Brie Larson hopes her Captain Marvel character will inspire young women. The Room star is set to take on the role of the Marvel superhero and hopes it will be a character young girls can look up to.
She told Space Channel: “On social media, I get sent a lot of pictures of young girls wearing the Captain Marvel costume, and I’m excited to see more of that. She (Captain Marvel) is such a great symbol for young girls, and I’m realising what a deficit we have – that we don’t have more of those.
“I think it’s really cool to see a girl in a Batman costume or Spider-Man costume, but I’m really excited that there’s a symbol for women. I think that that’s really important.”
Meanwhile, the 26-year-old actress previously revealed her job is “weird”. Speaking about the shooting for Free Fire, she said: “I slowly got the most disgusting and intense bruises all up one side of my leg. It became progressively more and more painful and more and more awful-looking. My job is so weird. This is what I’m doing. How do I explain this to people? …
“For a month, every day I was crawling on the floor that had tons of rocks and things on it. So I had to sort of figure out, because I had one arm that’s bad too, you’re just sort of scooting and lifting your butt up and slamming it back down. You’re trying to crawl for your life.”
