When we talk about superhero movies like Iron Man, The Dark Knight and others, we just cannot imagine anyone else playing the character apart from the existing actors. Isn’t it? Similarly, when we talk about Captain Marvel, we don’t think of anyone else but Brie Larson.
A while ago, the Avengers: Endgame started her own YouTube channel where she talks about her life, career choices and everything else under the sun, to connect more with her fans.
Brie Larson has shared a video on her failures. Not literally, by that, the Captain Marvel actress meant ‘Auditon failures’ and revealed that she turned down Marvel’s first female-lead film because of anxiety.
“I remember them calling and saying my role and [asking] if I was interested in playing Captain Marvel? I said “Oh I can’t do that, I have too much anxiety, that’s too much for me, I don’t think I can handle that so tell them no,” said Brie.
Larson continued, “And my team were like ‘okay sure’, and then a couple of months later they told me ‘hey they called again are you sure?’ and I was like ‘yea I’m too much of an introvert, that’s way too big of a thing for me, it was beyond my comprehension and no'”.
“Then they called a third time to ask if I was sure, so the point is every time I was saying no, and I thought my team were telling them no, they were not because I think they were thinking she would be great at this.” And that’s how we got out Captain Marvel, you guys!
