Mckenna Grace ''always dreamed'' of acting in a Marvel movie.

The 12-year-old actress can't believe she is going to be playing a superhero, a young Carol Danvers in 'Captain Marvel', the newest instalment of the hit movie franchise.

Of her role, she said: ''Oh, my gosh, I've always dreamed about and wanted to be a Marvel superhero. When I found out I got that, I screamed. I did it while I was shooting 'The Haunting' and 'The Bad Seed'. I'd go from 'The Haunting' to 'The Bad Seed', and then on the weekend, I would go fly to L.A. to train and learn how to do stuff for Captain Marvel. I feel very grateful and thankful because I've gotten to work with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), and I got to play young Captain Marvel. I love Marvel so much.  — Contactmusic
