Paul Rudd is excited to have Brie Larson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
During an exclusive interview with ET, the Ant-Man
star had nothing but great things to say when asked about Larson’s forthcoming titular role in Captain Marvel
"I love that," Rudd tells ET’s Ashley Crossan of the Oscar winner's new gig as an Avengers member. "Love Brie Larson. I think she’s incredible."
Although the superhero flick isn't scheduled to hit theaters until 2019, there’s already lots of buzz surrounding the project -- and for good reason.
Captain Marvel, aka Ms. Marvel aka Carol Danvers, is a celebrated female heroine, who made her first appearance in Marvel comics in the late 1960s and whose powers include superhuman strength, a sixth sense, and enhanced fighting skills.
Larson, 26, was confirmed to play Captain Marvel when she was introduced at the end of Marvel's panel at Comic-Con last month, and Rudd feels that she definitely deserves the role.
"I think we’ve very lucky to have Brie Larson in the fold," says the 47-year-old actor.
