Brie Larson is eager for Marvel Cinematic Universe to introduce more female superheroes.
Captain Marvel made history becoming the very first MCU film to feature a single female lead, which was welcomed by viewers, but it’s something that many believed had come a bit late.
Obviously, there are still a lot of significant female stars in the franchise – as shown in Avengers: Endgame’s girl power moment – but there’s still potential for more, and that’s precisely what Brie Larson seems to be eager for.
The usually reliable Daniel Richtman mentioned on his Patreon he learned the Captain Marvel actress is lobbying for Marvel to greatly expand the number of women heroes they currently boast in the MCU.
She said she was actively pushing to get more leading ladies to star beside her in the forthcoming Carol Danvers‘ sequel.

Several of Larson’s lady co-stars in the MCU are likely to support her in this effort, too, given numerous actresses in the franchise have said that they would be keen to participate in an A-Force movie or something that centered on Marvel’s ladies and left the males on the periphery for a change.
To be precise, that’s not what Larson is looking for here, but her allegedly pressing for more female characters in the MCU will go hand in hand with the all-women Avengers movie.
We should probably expect Teyonah Parris, who debuts in WandaVision, to return to Captain Marvel 2 as an adult Monica Rambeau, who is likely to become Photon in the second installment.
If Larson’s alleged desire gets fulfilled, the duo might team up with a lot of other female protagonists as well. That’s not too hard to orchestrate, either, given that the movie could be based in the present day, and that Carol had just made a bunch of Avengers buds in Endgame.
