Larson explained that she was actually frightened about signing on with Marvel Studios. She feared the alienation that comes with global superstardom and was scared of what would happen to her. She also mentioned that it is rare to do press when you’re questioning yourself, so only part of the story is ever told. Larson remembered looking within before taking on the Marvel role, wondering how she got to a place where “these are the choices [she has] to make as an artist.”

Despite her fears, Larson jumped into the MCU, making sure to keep herself in check and not lose who she was before she became a superhero. She mentioned that anytime she feels like she’s being put too much on a pedestal, it’s her job to figure out how to remove that within herself.
