Marvel Studios did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

We haven't yet met Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, but we can expect to see a lot of the character over the next few years, as it's been revealed the actress has signed a huge seven-picture deal with Marvel Studios.

After the MCU News & Tweets account posted about the report, Larson debunked it on Twitter.

The report of Larson's contract, which was signed back in 2016 but details of which were hitherto unknown, comes from THR in a broader story about Marvel actors' salaries, and ensures Captain Marvel will have a huge part to play in shaping the future of the MCU.

For a comparison, Chadwick Boseman only received $2 million for Black Panther.

The 24-year-old added she knew what to expect from Wang, who she said was helping spearhead the development of Chinese tennis. Gavrilova now faces China's number two Zhang Shuai, who wrapped up a 6-1 6-7 6-1 win over Lesley Kerkhove.

We'll have to wait and see if Larson signed a similar deal, but it doesn't look like it will be for seven films.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau. Marvel are known for signing their stars to long-term deals, but Larson's is one of the longest yet, beaten only by Sebastian Stan's whopping nine-picture deal.

If you're wondering about what's next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it'll probably involve quite a bit of Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. For example, Chris Evans initially signed a six-picture deal that included not only his Captain America films (Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War) but also his appearances in the Avengers films (Marvel's Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Avengers: Infinity War).
