Brie Larson, the star of upcoming DC comics, Captain Marvel, says that being in the limelight is scary. After DC’s first cast of women superhero in the cinema with Wonder Woman, Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel will be the second of their women. The 29-year-old star, however, reveals that she hasn’t quite gotten use to the tremendous attention she is getting for her new title role.
In an interview with Refinery29, the Academy winner said that since her role in Avengers: Infinity War that hinted at her Marvel Cinematic Universe role, people have started paying more attention.

Larson said, "It definitely is scary to think of people paying attention to me. I'm not gonna act super-strong when I've been kind of freaking out seeing how quickly my numbers on Instagram have been going up since 'Avengers: Infinity War' came out ... I've been sort of like, 'Oh God, I did not think about that. Um, like why are people paying attention to me?'" Larson said.
"I really just feel the same. I do feel like just a person. And so it's a weird feeling when people on the outside view you differently," she added.
Captain Marvel, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will feature the 29-year-old actor as Carol Denvers aka Captain Marvel. The fantasy movie also features Samuel L Jackson, Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, Gemma Chan and Jude Law as the likely antagonist, Captain Mar-vell.
