Who doesn’t love the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Seriously, who doesn’t, because these films make so much money it almost stands to reason that every living human is obsessed with them. Waiting for the next installments in the unfolding saga based on the comic books has become a way of life. The Avengers have become more iconic than just about any other group in media. And recently, we were introduced to the most powerful hero in the MCU, Captain Marvel. This character was brought to the screen by Brie Larson.
This movie was not only awesome, it also broke a ton of box office records and made approximately all of the money. A big driving force behind its success is the portrayal by Larson. She isn’t an overnight success, though. She’s more of a several-decade-overnight success. Whether you’ve been following her career for years or just became acquainted with her as Carol Danvers, there’s a lot of marvelous (see what we did there?) facts about this talented actress.
