Brie Larson might not want to get too invested in those Captain Marvel comic books she’s been reading up on.
Screenwriter Nicole Perlman has just revealed that the Carol Danvers who becomes Captain Marvel in the film will have a totally different backstory.
Speaking on the Any Time With Vin Forte podcast, Perlman said, “There’s a lot of reinvention that needs to happen. She’s her own person and she’s a great character. We have to be aware of what’s happened in [the film] and make sure that her particular storyline is unique and fun and also fits in within this world that’s going on at the same time.”
In the comics, Carol Danvers was the love interest of the original (male) Captain Mar-Vell, and she took over the role after his death.
The changes to the film’s backstory were apparently brought about by similarities to the Green Lantern movie which critics didn’t take too well.
