In recent months, Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame star Brie Larson has been making her presence felt on YouTube, and in her latest video, she drops more bombshells about her acting career.

While she didn't specify which characters she auditioned for, the Oscar-winner confirmed that she tried out for roles in both Iron Man 2 and Thor. Darcy Lewis and Jane Foster are two possibilities for the latter, but for Iron Man 2, we can only assume she may have been briefly considered for Black Widow. 

 Larson would then go on to talk in detail about what led to her landing the role of Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

"I remember getting a call and they said 'Marvel is interested in you playing Captain Marvel', and I was like 'Oh, I can't do that, I have too much anxiety, that's too much for me, I don't think I can handle that, so tell them no.'"

"And my team was like 'OK, for sure.' I think a couple months later, they called and were like 'They called again, are you sure?' And I was like 'Yeah, I'm too much of an introvert, that's way too big of a thing for me.' It was beyond my comprehension. And then they called a third time and were like 'Are you sure?' So, the point is, every time I was like 'Tell them no' and thought my team was telling them no, they were not. Cause I think they were like, 'She would be great at this..."

Larson went on to say that she finally met with Marvel Studios after shooting Kong: Skull Island, and it was then they won her over. "I had a meeting with them, they had a pitch, and they had a mock-up of the costume, and I was very moved by what they were trying to achieve, what they were talking about, and it felt very progressive," Larson explained.

"I was very surprised by the way that they were talking about feminism, they were like 'All female writers, female director, we're gonna have as many female voices in this as possible."

Moving forward, Larson has a bright future in the MCU as Captain Marvel with a sequel in the works and rumoured plans for the character in everything from Ms. Marvel to a Secret Invasion TV series.

Really hope the second film is an improvement over the first. The amnesia stuff for the first film really made it hard to care much about the character who didn't care much about themselves, so now that that's over, they can hopefully do something better. With a new director, I'm definitely looking forward to it.

@AbidNaga - Larson actually is a pretty good actress, so I too hope the second solo outing doesn't have the same dissappointing direction

@bkmeijer - Absolutely, that only added to my disappointment in that the narrative felt like it really did a disservice to her performance ability.

I guess she could have pulled off Black Widow, not sure what other character it could have been for Iron Man 2.

Cant see her as either Jane or Sif

Brie Larsons YouTube channel is worse than a Patreon that only releases stuff every 3 months 🤣

I like her in the role. I just hope the second film has a bit more impact.

An actress I really like is playing my second favorite superhero so I feel like it worked out for the best. It certainly did for Brie Larson. Her movie wasn't as good as I wanted it to be but I liked it and expect the sequel to be better.

@Shroombeast - Who's your first favourite? It's Daredevil right?

@TheManWithoutFear - I'm gonna say yes just in case I ever need a good defense attorney/masked vigilante.

@Shroombeast - Otherwise it's Doctor Strange. Unless you count Godzilla, which honestly you probably could, depending on the movie.

Damn she auditioned for everything

Her videos on YouTube have been fun particularly these 2 part auditioning ones.

I really liked CM. It felt like a phase 1 film and I don't know if that was intentional since it was her origin, but that's one of the reasons I like it.

Wait. She thought this role was too big, she was too much of an introvert and couldn't handle the anxiety but wanted and tried to headline Hunger Games, Terminator and Star Wars? Pick a story and stick to it. This is how you lose credibility.
