Brie Larson Shares Thrilling 'Captain Marvel' Footage A Month Before Film's Release
Oh hi, Nick Fury and Agent Coulson!
Speeding trains are no match for Carol Danvers.
Brie Larson thrilled fans over the weekend when she dropped surprise Captain Marvel footage via social media. Larson visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week to promote the film (slated to hit theaters March 8, 2019), but it looks like she couldn't wait to show off the Captain's legendary strength.
Captain Marvel (aka Carol Danvers), a half-human, half-Kree Air Force pilot, is hailed as the most powerful hero in the MCU.
“You have this Kree part of her that’s unemotional, that is an amazing fighter and competitive," Larson told EW in Sept. 2018. "Then there’s this human part of her that is flawed but is also the thing that she ends up leading by. It’s the thing that gets her in trouble, but it’s also the thing that makes her great. And those two sides warring against each other is what makes her her."
In the brief but jam-packed clip, Captain Marvel pursues a Skrull — aliens that can mask themselves as humans — atop a speeding train. Meanwhile, underneath the railway, agents Fury and Coulson (Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg) put the pedal to the metal to keep up with her on the highway. The film — set in the 1990s — follows Carol as she tries to mediate a galactic war while coming to terms with the battling sides of herself.
"I’ll just leave this here," Larson shared on Instagram on Friday.
Not only is Captain Marvel the strongest of the Marvel heroes, she's also the first female character to get a dedicated film.
Marvel will also release Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019, and there are three as yet unannounced MCU films scheduled for 2020, two in 2021, and another three slated for 2022.
One of these is rumored to be the long-awaited standalone Black Widow film, which means Captain Marvel won't be in a league of her own for too much longer.
Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019.
