Brie Larson’s age will NOT be an issue in Captain Marvel, because let’s be real here for a second
When Brie Larson was announced as Captain Marvel at Comic-Con, the room exploded with excitement. Social media quickly echoed that response. But, as always, there were a few naysayers: those who said Brie Larson was too young to play Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. (Larson is 27, but will be 29 when the film is released.) Well, Captain Marvel screenwriter Nicole Perlman has something to say about that particular issue.
Brie Larson’s age will not be an issue in Captain Marvel.
In an interview with The Great Big Beautiful podcast, Perlman said:
"I had to consult with the Air Force yesterday. I brought up the age issue. They said that it was not out of the realm of possibility that somebody could be very accomplished in the Air Force between the age of 28-34. You could go very far within that time. I don't think the age is going to be an issue. Also, obviously, by the time the film comes out, Larson will be a lot older than when she was announced."
Take that, naysayers!
Honestly, we know how dedicated Brie Larson is to her latest gig.
And, when you look at the facts, it’s clear that Larson is a great choice for Captain Marvel. So we’re completely behind this casting choice.
And we have to wonder, if Larson and Captain Marvel were men, would this hullaballoo have ever even been voiced?
