Captain Marvel actor Brie Larson teased her return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following the theatrical release of The Marvels movie.

During a recent interview with ET, the Oscar-winning star finally confirmed that The Marvels won’t be her final outing as Carol Danvers/ Captain Marvel. “I don’t want Marvel to come for me,” Larson revealed without spoiling what her next MCU project will be. “But there is something. There is definitely something, to answer your question, that I would want to say, but I am not going to.” This effectively dispels previous rumors that the acclaimed actor was reportedly getting discouraged to continue playing the Marvel superhero due to the online attacks she has been receiving since making her MCU debut.

Larson further reiterated her commitment to Captain Marvel by describing Carol Danvers as a “great character” who she likes “to continue to grow with.” She first made her appearance during the post-credits scene of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. Since then, Larson went on to play Captain Marvel in five MCU movies, which included cameo appearances in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Ms. Marvel.

In addition, she also expressed how much she loved Carol’s storyline in The Marvels, in which she gets to lead her own team after years of going on solo missions. “I think there is still so much inside of Carol,” Larson continued. “I feel like getting to be on this team just cracked her open in a way that she hadn’t been, and I really loved that for her. I just loved her letting the shoulders drop a little bit, and not need to feel like all the responsibility was on her. So I think that there is just so much more to go.”

When Larson was cast as Captain Marvel, MCU vet Scarlett Johansson was the first one who congratulated her on joining the blockbuster franchise. Larson decided to continue this tradition by being the first one to welcome Iman Vellani into the MCU, after the then-16-year-old newcomer won the role of Ms. Marvel through a global casting search. “Being a superhero is like a weird, specific job,” Larson said in a previous interview. “Who else is going to be like, ‘And make sure you have extra zippers, so you can go to the bathroom.’ … It’s just like very strange things.”

The Marvels was directed and co-written by Nia DaCosta. Apart from Larson, the film also stars Vellani as Kamala Khan and Teyonah Parris as Captain Monica Rambeau, who both made their live-action debuts in Disney+ shows Ms. Marvel and WandaVision, respectively. Joining the cosmic-powered trio are Samuel L. Jackson, Zawe Ashton, Park Seo-joon, Tessa Thompson, Lashana Lynch, and more. Despite receiving the lowest-grossing opening weekend within the MCU, the film was able to land a decent Audience score rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with fans praising the leading trio’s chemistry and Vellani’s scene-stealing performance.

The Marvels is now playing in theaters worldwide.
