Harder, Deeper, Faster. KENDRA TAYLOR to Star in Role Once Offered to RONDA ROUSEY


LOS ANGELES, CA – (MARCH 25, 2019) – After an extensive casting search, Axel Braun and Wicked Comix are pleased to announce that Kenzie Taylor has been cast to lead the legendary director's latest endeavor, Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody. While further official details are still under wraps, 2019’s reigning AVN Best Director (Feature) couldn't be more excited to showcase Taylor’s formidable acting skills and unstoppable sexual prowess in his most anticipated movie of the year.

“Over a hundred and twenty girls submitted audition videos," the director exclaimed, positively shocked, "and although I'm used to huge turnouts when holding physical casting calls, this was literally insane! The top agents were as usual very proactive and efficient, but this time a huge percentage of submissions also came from self-booking talent. The audition consisted of a fairly long and pretty complex monologue, and 99% of the girls memorized it in its entirety, which was very impressive and indicative of a refreshing level of professionalism and commitment in the industry. More than half of the submissions were very good, and it took me a couple of days to narrow it down to a shortlist of four exceptional ones. Then yesterday OC Modeling sent me Kenzie’s video...and I immediately realized my search was over. Her audition was literally on a whole different level from anyone else's. Kenzie’s acting was fantastic, and she managed to show strength, intensity, and vulnerability at the same time, and she projected a genuine aura of wholesomeness while exuding the right amount of sex-appeal. She will be a phenomenal Carol Danvers, and I can’t wait to see her in the Captain Marvel costume!”

A master of the parody form and the most awarded adult director in history, Axel Braun is in a league of his own at this point. His most recent Wicked Comix epic, the big-budget Marvel spoof Deadpool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, was a massive commercial success which topped the sales charts and took home four major trophies at the 2019 AVN awards, Best Parody, Best Actor (Seth Gamble), Best Art Direction, and Best Makeup.

“I am so full of gratitude, and totally speechless,” beamed a clearly excited Taylor. “This is my first real opportunity to show everyone what I’m truly capable of as an adult actress, and I really am just mind blown...I feel like I’m dreaming and I need to wake up! All I can say is thank you so much Axel Braun and Wicked Pictures for trusting me with this amazing role! I am really looking forward to embarking on this journey with Axel, and digging into the complexities and the physicality of this character. Saying that I will give this 110% would be an understatement.”  

Now beginning its third week at the top of the box office, and anchored by a spectacular performance by Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is already the most successful mainstream movie release of 2019. Yet while the adventures of Carol Danvers may be new to the silver screen, the character is one that Braun has sought to bring to his Parody AxelVerse for years. He famously offered the role to professional wrestler, actress, and mixed martial artist Ronda Rousey in 2015, with a $5,000,000 public bid chronicled by TMZ (https://bit.ly/2JoWFui), IGN (https://bit.ly/2OfRLyE), MovieWeb (https://bit.ly/2TNqzNE), and others.  

Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is the director's first big-budget production to go before the cameras since his ambitious black and white original feature The Possession of Mrs Hyde swept the 36th AVN Awards in Las Vegas, winning Best Action/Thriller, Best Director-Feature, Best Screenplay (written by Braun in collaboration with his late father, Golden Age porn pioneer Lasse Braun, and his son, adult filmmaker Rikki Braun), and Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene (lead actress Avi Love & Roman Nomar), before snagging the evening's top prize, Movie of the Year, marking the fourth time in Braun’s illustrious career that he has won the most coveted AVN award. 
Harder. Deeper. Faster. Captain Marvel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody will be available in late summer 2019.
