Brie Larson Announced As Marvel's 'Captain Marvel'

Oscar winner Brie Larson will play Marvel superhero 'Captain Marvel'.

Marvel announced Saturday at Comic-Con that Larson will star as the air force pilot Carol Danvers who gains powers after an alien encounter.

'Captain Marvel', expected to release almost two years after DC's 'Wonder Woman' in March 2019, will be Marvel's first film to center on a female character.

Danvers was created in 1968 as an American security officer. She debuted as Ms. Marvel after her human DNA was fused with genes from the alien race known as the Kree. Her powers include super-strength, flight, and the ability to shoot energy.

Marvel head Kevin Feige has previously said the character will "straddle two worlds. Her origins are very much Earthbound, but her adventures and power base come from the cosmic realm."

Larson won the Best Actress Academy Award this year for her performance in 'Room'.
