Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel will appear in Avengers 4, according to co-star Scarlett Johansson, who also revealed that she will be sharing a scene with Larson.
Johansson told Vanity Fair, “We have Brie Larson on this film. She’s here before shooting the stand-alone Captain Marvel movie so we get to watch her get her feet wet for real. […] She’s so great but a really cute thing happened the other day where Hulk is standing next to her and Joe Russo told her to put her hand in front of Mark [Ruffalo]’s face to stop him, and she’s like, ‘In front of his face?’ And they explained, ‘That’s where his chest is,’ and she looks up and yells, ‘I’m new! I’m new!’ I’m like ‘Damn, girl.’ It’s very surreal for me to watch these new cast members come in and get their feet wet and breathe new life into these characters who are so iconic.”
This also confirms the theory that Larson’s Carol Danvers will somehow be transported from her solo film’s 1990s setting to the modern day – though how this happens is a mystery.
Larson has previously said that she was hoping to share a scene with the Hulk, and so it seems her dreams have gone true. The actress told USA Today, “I do kind of have fantasies of battling the Hulk. Just because that’s like, it’s just visually so good.”
Marvel has confirmed that Larson will not be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War.
Captain Marvel is due for release on March 8th, 2019, with the as-yet untitled Avengers 4 following on May 4th, 2019.
