The Oscar-winning actress, a new arrival to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is playing Carol Danvers in the new movie – and posted a tantalising new clip to Instagram. The sequence sees her in action fighting what is presumably a Skrull, while Nick Fury and Phil Coulson tail them. The sequence takes place on the roof of a fast-moving train – which is, of course, heading towards a tunnel.
Towards the end of the clip, we get a good look at Carol’s powers as she tries to blast away the oncoming obstruction.
Cheeky Larson captioned the snippet: “I’ll just leave this here.”
It’s been viewed half a million times in just seven hours since being posted, and has amassed over 100,000 Likes.
Captain Marvel is now just over a month away from release, and this new clip had earlier aired on Ellen DeGeneres’ US chatshow.
Earlier this week some early reactions started filtering out of friends and family screenings – including the claim that it’s Carol’s cat Goose who steals the show.
And a new foreign-language teaser gave us our clearest look yet at the pager Nick Fury was seen using in the Avengers: Infinity War end credits scene.
Speaking to Ellen, Larson said of her character: “She was an Air Force pilot and was breaking crazy records, and then this insane thing happens to her which gives her powers.
“And this film is about her learning about her past, figuring out who she is and owning herself, which is my favorite part.”
The physical demands of the workout were enormous; and she recalled to the Los Angeles Times: “There were moments where I cried, there were moments where I thought it was too hard, where I got pushed beyond my comfort zone, but those were ultimately my favorite moments.
“At the time you’re like, ‘Why is this happening to me?’ And then afterwards you feel so proud of yourself.”
Samuel L Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Clark Gregg, Annette Bening and Jude Law also star.
Captain Marvel is out on March 8.
