Brie Larson is already gearing up for her role as Captain Marvel, and her latest training video shows just how much effort she’s putting in to get into character.
Larson has already done a lot of research on Carol Danvers as seen from her previous posts, but as she celebrated 1 million followers on Instagram she posted a new video of her physical training regimen, and she’s definitely not slacking in that department either.
In the video, Larson can be seen holding a weight loaded bar above her head as she does targeted lunges. This is just a tiny part of her physically demanding workouts, which also include pushups with a chain, pull-ups, and more.
Larson is making sure that Captain Marvel is not just another “girl in an action movie”.
“It’s not so easy as just saying ‘Oh, that’s a girl in an action movie; that’s a superhero and she’s tough, and she’s just like a dude.’ That’s too easy. That’s not where we’re at actually. I think women are far more complicated and more interesting than just saying, ‘They’re like a dude, and that’s what makes them tough and that’s what makes them cool.’” Larson reflected. “That’s just not how it works, so to me it’s this idea of doing this film on this larger scale with really incredible, smart people behind it, with women behind it, that gives you an hour and a half, two hours to sit and see how different a woman can be. That seems cool to me, right?”
The film stars Academy Award winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Marv-Vell, DjimonHounsou, Lee Pace, Kenneth Mitchell and Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson.
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is the story of Carol Danvers and how she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth after being bestowed with cosmic super powers after meeting with an accident.
Danvers is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races in an all-new adventure from a different time period in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
