As the Marvel Studios San Diego Comic-Con panel came to an end, with all of the cast members coming together for an epic superhero group selfie, there was one last announcement: Captain Marvel (a.k.a. Carol Danvers) was in the house! And onstage came Brie Larson! The Kong: Skull Island actress, who was at SDCC promoting her other film, has officially been confirmed as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next female superhero.
Liveblogging for Marvel, Ryan Penagos tweeted the news:
