‘Captain Marvel’: Kevin Feige hypes Brie Larson and her powers, getting a female director

While Doctor Strange blew up at the box office and fans are eager to see the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel in May, another superhero will be added to the mix: Captain Marvel, getting her own film in a couple of years.

Speaking on the Phase 3 changes in a new interview with Variety, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige elaborated on past comments that she’s going to be this world’s most powerful hero.

“If you had the collector cards of the Marvel characters and you could see the power levels, she would be off the charts compared to anyone that we’ve previously introduced in a film,” Feige explained before going on to explain how that makes Brie Larson right for the role.

“With Captain Marvel, who has powers that approach a level that we haven’t seen before in our films, you need to counter-balance that by finding somebody who is also very human and very relatable and can get into a groove with the audience, where they’re willing to see her fly through the sun and punch a moon away from a spacecraft. At the same time, we need her to land and have relatable flaws.”

Feige confirmed the thoughts and rumors that Marvel will hired a female director for Captain Marvel.

“Having a female director at the helm to tell the story of a woman who is also our most powerful hero by far is very important to us,” he confirmed without shedding any further light on how the hunt for a filmmaker to take the helm of Captain Marvel is progressing, adding that “Brie is a person you’re going to want to go on this journey with, just like Benedict (Cumberbatch) or Robert (Downey Jr.) or Chris Pratt.”

Captain Marvel is set for March 8, 2019. (Note the change from the original date listed in the photo at the announcement of the film)
