Brie Larson will make her on-screen debut as the Marvel Comics character Captain Marvel in an eponymous film set for 2019, and she is so visibly excited.
From the moment she was officially cast in June 2016, Larson has used her Instagram and Twitter to show off her excitement and love for what the character is going to be, and recently posted something very fun.
Wearing custom Nike shoes that the company themselves sent her, the shoes read “Capt.” and “Marvel” in an awesome little quirk that will surely hit retail shelves come time for the Captain Marvel film release date. Here’s her official Instagram post about the new kicks:
It’s always fun to see MCU actors posting these fun little things on their social media, which brings in fans to a special little goofy world that everyone who loves Marvel should feel welcome in. It is wonderful to see the latest high-profile addition to the MCU roster embrace the fun sensibilities that all the movies promote.
Captain Marvel will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and is set for release March 8, 2019.
6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve
Logan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.
Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.
