The 59-year-old actress has signed up for the female-led Marvel Studios film alongside Brie Larson, in what is thought to be her first comic book movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bening looks set to play a scientist but full details of her character are being kept under wraps. Larson will take on the role of Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel - an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien in an accident, leaving her with powers including super-strength and flight - in the hotly-anticipated motion picture. Ben Mendelsohn, who will star as the villain in the movie, believes Larson is "absolutely perfect" for the part.
