In an interview with MTV, the interviewer told Larson she was a fan favorite to take on the role. The actress’ response?
“Isn’t that a boy?”
The interviewer clarified that she would still be a woman, but Larson was still confused.
“The first female, so would I be playing a man? I was like, this is interesting. I’m kind of into it. I thought I was always forever going to be stuck playing female roles but I’m down to play Chris Evans,” she said. “No, wait, Chris Evans is Captain America. Who’s Captain Marvel?”
She laughingly continued, “I have no idea what I’m talking about, great, but people want me to play this? Okay, good to know. I guess I’ve got to start reading the comic book.”
