Academy Award winning actress Brie Larson ("Room") has been confirmed to star as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in Marvel Studios' new female-led superhero movie. The actress has been a frontrunner for the role for some time now, but Marvel officially announced it at this year's Comic-Con.

The project was initiated a few years ago when Marvel hired "Inside Out" co-writer Meg LeFauve and "Guardians of the Galaxy" co-writer Nicole Perlman to pen the script. And according to some rumors floating around, the character should make her first appearance in the two-part MCU installment "Avengers: Infinity War" directed by Joe and Anthony Russo ("Captain America: Civil War").

Danvers is the last in a long line of characters who have assumed the mantle of Captain Marvel within the Marvel Universe. The first Captain Marvel was created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan in 1967, and Danvers was first introduced as the new Captain in 2012, although her character has been around since the 1960s, becoming the hero Ms. Marvel in 1977.

When Danvers made her debut in "Marvel Super-Heroes" in 1968, she was an officer in the United States Air Force and Security Chief of a restricted military base. Her superpowers were first introduced in 1969 as a result of a fusion of alien Kree and human genes.

Brie Larson can also be seen in the epic adventure "Kong: Skull Island" and the indie drama "The Glass Castle".

"Captain Marvel" will open in theaters on March 8, 2019.
