Brie Larson blasts off as Marvel's first leading lady

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) "Captain Marvel" actor Brie Larson feels" encouraged" by changes in the entertainment industry when it comes to diversity and representation.

The actor, who wanted her press tour for the latest Marvel superhero movie to be more inclusive, told Reuters: "I don't have an aim or a plan really at all, I'm just an aware person and I'm a curious person and I ask a lot of questions and that's all that it is really." "I will say that this film allowed me an opportunity and a platform to be able to have more flexibility to do more and I just took that opportunity." When asked how she plans to maintain the momentum, Larson mused: "I don't know.

We'll see how it continues to grow but I feel like just we as human beings are constantly changing and growing, the industry is doing the same and I feel really encouraged by some of the headlines that I've been seeing and how even different studios are taking inclusion on and being more aware so sometimes it's just it takes one person being like, 'Something seems weird,' and people are like, 'Oh my gosh, you're right!'

And then we'll just see where it goes." The actor plays the titular hero, aka Carol Danvers, who gets caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races while also trying to find out who she really is by piecing together her past, some of which she doesn't remember.

Larson, who reunites with her 'Kong: Skull Island" co-star Samuel L.

Jackson, and stars opposite Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Lashana Lynch and Annette Bening, says being part of the progressive Marvel Cinematic Universe inspired her to push for change.

"We talked about 'Captain Marvel' like three years ago so I think at that point I knew about 'Black Panther' but it wasn't out yet but I knew what they were doing behind the scenes with it and it was... I was really impressed with the steps that they were taking and understanding, just like we did with this movie," she told Reuters.

"We're telling a female story but it's not good enough to just be like, 'You just hired a female lead and then we did it!'

It's like you have to infuse it in every aspect of it, we have to make sure that we are actually bringing more seats to the table, that we're walking the walk, we're not just putting it on a poster, that we're living it." "Captain Marvel" hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
