Brie Larson signed on for seven MCU films


As seems to be the norm nowadays, the star of Marvel’s Captain Marvel, Brie Larson, is already signed on for at least seven movies.

With earlier confirmed appearances in the Captain Marvel solo film and Avengers: Endgame, it seems that Brie Larson is in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the long haul.

The first report of this seven-movie deal happened in October, but Larson was quick to deny the claim she had signed on for more movies. In recent months, Larson must have seen this deal as a good move for her career, because it was confirmed in a piece from The Hollywood Reporter.

This same piece reported that Larson has already netted 5 million from the first Captain Marvel movie, making her the highest-paid actor for an MCU debut. Robert Downey Jr. took in a half-million for the first Iron Man, and Chadwick Boseman made $2 million for Black Panther.

Marvel appears to have a lot of faith in Larson, and rightfully so. She’s become a crowd favorite for her appearances in Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Room, Short Term 12, and many more. She’s also won a Golden Globe, Academy Award, BAFTA, and a variety of other awards for her acting.

Marvel seems to have a thing for picking favorites from the indie community, including having Taika Waititi direct Thor: Ragnarok and James Gunn direct Guardians of the Galaxy. This method has worked for them in the past and looks to be something they’ll continue for the foreseeable future.
