Captain Marvel, Brie Larson

Jude Law wasn't even asked about Brie Larson in "Captain Marvel," but he was so impressed by her that he couldn't stop gushing. No compalints!

Entertainment Weekly asked the "Fantastic Beasts 2" star about his role in the upcoming Marvel movie. He's said to be playing Mar-Vell/Walter Lawson. He quickly deflected away from himself to start talking about Captain Marvel herself, Carol Danvers star Brie Larson:
"Yes, it’s been reported I’m playing Mar-Vell. I'm not going to confirm or deny that. It’s been a very interesting experience. Brie Larson has approached it with incredible dedication and devotion. She really turned out a WONDERFUL performance — fun and feisty and smart. I think she’s going to be absolutely magnificent."

We're sold! We were already sold -- she sold us even before winning her Oscar for "Room" -- but it's great to hear the hype machine is already in motion for the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The 1990s-set "Captain Marvel" only recently wrapped filming, as honored on social media by Brie Larson herself. We're expecting the first teaser to arrive later this year, which Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige also said is when we should get the official title to "Avengers 4."

"Captain Marvel" flies into theaters March 8, 2019.
