Brie Larson unveils on Twitter end of filming Captain Marvel
Academy Award-winning actress and star of Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie, Brie Larson posted on Sunday a photo to Twitter to announce that Captain Marvel had officially wrapped filming on 6 July. Larson will star in the MCU’s first female-led solo film, which also sees its first female director – with Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck taking co-directing duties.
Captain Marvel is being primed to become the new face of the MCU as it heads into its fourth phase, succeeding the likes of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans), as confirmed by Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
There’s not too much known about the film outside of its official synopsis: “Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.”
With the screenplay penned by a team consisting of Boden and Fleck, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Liz Flahive, and Carly Mensch, the cast also includes Jude Law, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, and Jude Law.
