Daaaamn, Watch Captain Marvel Lift 275 Pounds Just To Get A Cookie

Marvel Studios has been hyping up Captain Marvel has the most powerful character in the MCU. While she can't learn how to shoot laser beams, Brie Larson still has to undergo serious physical training to play the superhero. Larson has shared some very impressive exercise videos before, but now we finally have a window to what makes her so motivated: A cookie reward!

Like just about every actor that signs on to play a superhero character, Brie Larson has been training for months to get into tip-top shape. While working out had the added benefit of helping her get inside the head of Carol Danvers, lifting all those weights can get pretty demanding. Sometimes it's nice to have a little reward and there's probably nothing better than a nice big cookie.

Brie Larson shared a new exercise video to her Twitter account. The video shows off Larson lifting 275 pounds (!) in an exercise that I do not know the name of and will never personally do. It looks tough as hell, but it's totally worth it because Larson gets to snack on a big cookie, something she is clearly very happy to eat.

It's important to remember that Brie Larson is probably not allowed to eat cookies while on her workout diet. In addition to physical training, superhero actors also have to go on diets. As you can imagine, they don't get to eat very many sweets or anything else fun, so that cookie might as well be gold.

Hopefully, all of that training pays off for Brie Larson when Captain Marvel arrives in theaters. The movie has a lot of hype right now and is one of the most anticipated movies of 2019. We've gotten some really cool trailers and people are really excited to see this character finally arrive in the MCU.

If people like Captain Marvel then they won't have to wait very long to see her again. The character will be joining what's left of the Avengers in Avengers: Endgame, where she will likely be a crucial piece of the puzzle to defeating Thanos once and for all. The Hulk might not have been able to take him head on, but Captain Marvel could give Thanos a run for his money.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the movie stars Brie Larson, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.

We'll be able to see how it all plays out onscreen when Captain Marvel arrives in theaters on March 8, 2019.
