Larson

Actor

Shifting from a dressed-down tearjerking Oscar-Golden Globes film role (2015’s “Room”) into a superhero suit — as in, traditionally worn by a man — proved no challenge for Larson, whose fresh-faced, determined aplomb sent “Captain Marvel” to a $426 million domestic box office this year. She reprised the role in “Avengers: Endgame,” officially cementing her as hot property. After making her directorial debut in 2017 with the indie “Unicorn Store,” playing opposite Samuel L. Jackson as a dreamer kicked out of art school, Netflix picked up the film this year, a two-picture deal that puts her in line to star in and possibly direct the girl-power “Lady Business.” She’ll also star in the 2020 film “Just Mercy,” opposite Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx.
