All the rumors were true. Marvel Studios made it official during their Hall H San Diego Comic-Con panel that Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel for the March 2019 film.
Larson was reportedly in negotiations for the role back in June. The actress, who won her Academy Award for last year’s The Room, will make her first appearance as the character in Avengers: Infinity War before spinning out into her own solo film in 2019.
The film also got a new updated logo, pictured above. No director has been named for the film yet.
Captain Marvel opens on March 8, 2019.
