Mohawks, Highlights, & ’90s Hair: Inside Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel Makeover
One Small Step For Marvel, One Giant Leap For Womankind

After working on several films in the Marvel universe (including Black Panther and Captain America), Friend was ready to help this female superhero come to life. “Our executive producer on the film, Patricia Whitcher, told me they were planning on filming another Marvel movie and it’d be about a female superhero, so I said, ‘Sign me up!'”

Friend knew early on that Captain Marvel would be special. “I was ready to do it because I love being a part of the origin stories in Marvel. You get to really explore the character, the universe, and create something no one has seen yet,” she says. “And, it’s the first female lead [in the MCU]. It felt near and dear to my heart.”
