Before we witness the end of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with Avengers: Endgame, we have Captain Marvel to look forward to. Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and one of her co-stars is Lashana Lynch who will play Maria Rambeau in this Marvel superhero film. In a roundtable interview, Lashana Lynch was given a platform to discuss Captain Marvel.
Here is what Lashana Lynch had to say on what Marvel has allowed her to say about Captain Marvel and her involvement in this comic book movie:
“That I’m a part of Marvel now. [Laughs] That’s it! Thanks guys. It’s been great! [Laughs] That she is Maria Rambeau, the mother of Monica, who I know you all know and love like myself. She is a fighter pilot, very strong, very bold, very in control of herself.”
“I’d say, in high demand with the industry that she’s in. Her and Brie’s character Carol Danvers are very close friends. They’re best friends, in fact. She had to go through a lot of grief when Carol disappeared and then suddenly she’s back, and she has to kind of reverse that grief and make it work for this picking up of a friendship, which is kind of strange but ends up really beautifully.”
“And she’s just an incredible character to play. It’s nice to see someone on the page who doesn’t yet have a fully fleshed personality who you can then inject wherever you want to, and that’s quite a treat for a Marvel character, you know?”
Lashana Lynch also talked about what the relationship is like between her character and Carol Danvers:
“They have a very dry humor together. You know when you love someone and you pretend like you hate them? They have that. A little bit of a slightly unlikely boisterous, yet very loving, deeply loving, caring sister love. They have a sisterhood about them that is really nice to see in a Marvel movie.”
“Carol Danvers is someone who is an aunt to my child, like she is family and that’s why her death takes such a big effect on her life because she actually is her life. They’re in a male-orientated environment and industry. All they have is each other as female fighter pilots. So yeah, they’re extremely close, extremely.”
