Brie Larson hopes she'll be able to to play Captain Marvel for a little longer.
Despite the poor performance from The Marvels, the superhero actor says she wants fans to experience more from her character.
She told Entertainment Tonight: "I think there is still so much inside of Carol.
"I feel like getting to be on this team just cracked her open in a way that she hadn't been and I really loved that for her."
The Marvels sees Captain Marvel team up with Ms Marvel (played by Iman Vellani) and Captain Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris).
The three have their powers combined and swapped after Rambeau touches the jump point anomaly near the S.A.B.E.R space station.
Larson was happy that the sequel to her 2019 film allow her to show off her character's depth.
"I just loved her letting the shoulders drop a little bit, and not need to feel like all the responsibility was on her," the Oscar-winning star said.
"So I think that there is just so much more to go.
"She is just a great character to continue to grow with. It's like, as I am growing she is growing."
However, another film about Captain Marvel could be unlikely due to the box office performance of The Marvels.
It cost more than $200 million to produce and it has so far only grossed $161 million at the global box office.
The sequel has a 79 per cent critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a dismal 45 per cent audience score.
One viewer wrote in their review: "Boring, short movie that feels super long. Plot is weak and acting is even worse."
Another added: "This was a great movie. I suggest watching WandaVision and Ms. Marvel on Disney plus before watching. The movie is not getting the credit it deserves."
A third said: "Unfortunately, the movie was a boring drag to get through. Carol isn't aware of who she is for the majority of the movie, and what's worse, the audience isn't either. I never really felt like I got a good sense of who she was as a human."
There has been no announcement on a third movie in the franchise so we'll have to wait and see.
