    Brie Larson Reportedly Eyed For Mara Jade After Passing On Ahsoka Tano

    Star Wars fans were given a huge and unexpected surprise earlier this week when not only was it announced that fan favorite character Ahsoka Tano was set to make her live-action debut in the second season of The Mandalorian, but Rosario Dawson had also been cast in the role, something that will no doubt go down well with the vast majority of the fanbase.

    Those with an interest in the expanded Star Wars universe had been clamoring for her to make the transition to either the movies or TV shows for a while now, with constant speculation linking the Jedi to the franchise in recent months. One of the most popular theories was that Ahsoka was set to play a prominent role in Kevin Feige’s in-development Star Wars project, with his Marvel Cinematic Universe star Brie Larson heavily linked to the part.

    And while there’s still a chance that the character could show up in Feige’s Star Wars movie, we’ve also heard from our sources – the same ones that told us months ago that Ahsoka was set to make an appearance in The Mandalorian – that Larson is still in the mix, but for a different role now.

    Yes, after passing on the opportunity to play Tano, the Captain Marvel star is said to be on Feige’s wish list to lead the spinoff as Mara Jade, who has a very muddled history in the Star Wars expanded universe but is still hugely popular with fans. Disney and Lucasfilm are very high on the idea of bringing Larson into the franchise, apparently, something the 30 year-old seems more than okay with, and despite names like Emily Blunt also said to be under consideration, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer has made the Academy Award winner his number one choice, from what we’re told.

    Of course, nothing can be confirmed as of yet, with Feige’s Star Wars movie still set to be a long way away, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we hear more about the studio’s plans for Mara and who will end up playing her.

    Works out well for me, I don't like Star Wars and I don't like Brie Larson.

    As long it makes at least a billion dollars worldwide, they'll keep producing this crap.

    Don't forget about 2 years of bitching on the internet before they see it and for 2 years after they see it.

    None of these will be as outstanding as The Last Jedi was. They should have just ended the franchise on that high point.

    Ashoka though? Godamnit. Why do they REFUSE to give us a Old Republic series of movies?

    In all seriousness that seems like a bad move. She is already headlining a major adventure series with sci-fi themes in the same company. Having her front and center in two action/adventure franchises appealing to the same fans at the same time would be confusing. And that's before you get into the issues a big part of the fanbase have with her.

    Really does not seem like a good move to win fans around post Last Jedi given that Larson is bound up in the same kind of "PC cultural wars" fuss although honestly I think Marvel would have been better off casting Blunt for that role as well. Beyond any politics the issue with Larson for me is that she's lacking in gravitas, its like watching Downey Jnr playing Ironman but ONLY the sass which makes it insufferable for many.
