“I just heard about that,” he revealed during a panel at Wizard World Philadelphia. I really hope that happens! I love Brie Larson. We did a movie together back in ’09, Scott Pilgrim vs The World,” Evans said.

“I cannot say enough about Brie Larson. I think she’s phenomenal, and I really hope that happens.”

No director is on board for Captain Marvel yet, although Elizabeth Wood is rumoured to be involved.

Inside Out writer Meg LeFauve and Guardians of the Galaxy co-author Nicole Perlman are working on the script, with Marvel’s Kevin Feige producing.
