Brie Larson may have just recently made her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain Marvel, however, it seems like the Marvel star was actually cast as Carol Danvers years before Marvel made the casting announcement.

Larson just recently went on an interview with First We Feast (via Heroic Hollywood) to talk about her overall career, and during the discussion, the Marvel star inadvertently revealed that she had been cast years before fans knew about her role.

When the Award-winning actress was asked about a photo she took while posing together with Star Wars slug Jabba the Hutt, the Marvel star let the entertainment news outlet know that the image had been taken the same day where she was first scanned for her Captain Marvel costume.

Larson says that she was lucky to get the photo – it helped stave off the need to tell everyone that she had gotten the role of Captain Marvel.

“I believe that day, what people don’t know, is that was the day that I went in to get scanned for them to start making the Captain Marvel costume, the actress explained, “So that was like, years before anybody even knew. It was cool because I was able to share in my excitement of that without giving away the larger thing. It’s like I got to share in the moment without actually sharing in the moment.”

Right now, fans are waiting for Larson to reprise her role as Carol Danvers in a Captain Marvel sequel. The film has yet to begin production, so Larson has been preoccupying herself by creating content on YouTube.
