The casting of the role of Carol Danvers for the female superhero movie ''Captain Marvel'' has become a truly suspense game. The latest name which is speculated to be considered for this role is Brie Larson. 

Larson came to limelight when she was nominated for a young artist award for her role in the sitcom ''Raising Dad'' however, her career as a singer also did not get much attention in her initial days. Her role as a rebellious teenager in TV series ''United States of Tara'' made her a household name. This series was aired between 2009 and 2011 and in 2004 her performance in the movie ''sleepover'' along with a gang of teenage actors brought her to limelight. Bustle has a report about the cast and crew of this movie.

Cinemablend did an article about the choice of ''The Gambler'' famed actress Larson in the role of Carol Danvers for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe's ''Captain Marvel.'' ''Although Brie Larson has appeared in a variety of projects, many are most familiar with her through her comedy work, and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that's a bonus. Mixed in with the serious moments and action scenes in these movies are protagonists, and some of the antagonists, dropping occasional quips and one-liners. Larson can easily pull this off as Carol Danvers, whether it's back and forth with one of the supporting cast or cleverly insulting whichever adversary she's facing'' is what the article had to say about the choice of Larson in the role.

Sienna Miller, Bryce Dallas Howard, Katheryn Winnick, Rebecca Ferguson, Jessica Chastain, Natalie Dormer, Charlize Theron, Maika Monroe, Katee Sackhoff, Olivia Wilde, Ronda Rousey and Emily Blunt too are considered for this role. Will Larson be able to fight her case against such a large list of A listers and popular actresses?

''Captain Marvel'' is set to be released on Mar. 8, 2019 and the fans are waiting for the name of the actress who will finally bag the role of Carol Danvers. ''Captain Marvel is currently set for release on March 8, 2019, which means that Marvel will likely announce who's playing Carol Danvers by at least fall 2017 at the latest (and that's also assuming she doesn't pop up in Avengers: Infinity War Part I beforehand). Following this Oscar win, Brie Larson's fame is only going to increase, so Marvel would be wise to at least put her on their list of candidates while her schedule for the near-future is still relatively open. While the wait continues, let us know if you think Brie Larson is a good candidate for Captain Marvel'' the article further backed Larson for the role of Carol Danvers.

What do the fans think? Who should bag the role of Carol Danvers? Please pen down your thoughts here.
