Captain Marvel star Brie Larson was excited to bring the character to the big screen, though she was bit cautious about taking it up initially.
“There’s a lot about it that felt like a big decision and it’s not just a big decision for myself, it’s a big decision for my family and my partner and for my friends. It’s a big change for everybody and I wasn’t sure if it was the right thing for me,” Larson told the Associate Press.
The Captain Marvel Little Golden Book will hit the store shelves on 8 January 2019, while Captain Marvel will hit the big screens on 9 March 2019.
