Being a part of a Marvel film means a lot of darting out and around spoilers before the release. So, in anticipation for Captain Marvel soon hitting theaters, the MCU’s newest member Brie Larson is starting to feel the weight of spoilers tucked in her brain off her shoulders. During Wednesday’s Captain Marvel London premiere, here’s what the actress said:
It’s part of why I’m very excited for the movie to come out, so I can finally sleep knowing I didn’t spoil anything.
Nothing like a good night’s rest – it’s coming Brie, just one week left! The actress told Associated Press this as she graced the carpet in a royal blue gown with her costars including Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Annette Bening, Gemma Chan and Lashana Lynch to finally screen the film with an audience. This comes after years of extensive training, filming and press, while remaining tight-lipped about spilling too much about the film.
Captain Marvel has a particular interest surrounding it because it’s a precursor to Avengers: Endgame. Fans have been looking for any hint in sight from the upcoming release to connect with what will go down in Endgame, following the shocking conclusion of Infinity War.
When other MCU actors such as Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland have let spoilers slip – albeit in funny and entertaining ways, Brie Larson may have realized that no one is safe from the danger of spoiling the highly-anticipated Marvel origin story. The actress did recently reveal gracing the cover of Empire, jokingly saying someone has to be the Mark Ruffalo of 2019 if she released it prematurely.
For Captain Marvel, there has especially been secrecy surrounding the characters played by Jude Law and Annette Bening. Jude Law’s identity has been kept under wraps, leading to rumors he would be portraying either Mar-Vell or Yon-Rogg, though a recently released clip confirmed he will play the latter. Speculation of Bening’s character has also ranged, but the actress recently broke her silence, stating she will play The Supreme Intelligence.
Samuel L. Jackson recently got chatty about revealing(?) Captain Marvel has time-traveling abilities, leading to some fan theories about how the Avengers undo the events of Infinity War a little more possible and potentially awarding Jackson the real status of Mark Ruffalo of 2019. But Brie Larson… she isn't saying a thing.
Early reactions have been kind to Captain Marvel, as first audiences have patted the film on the back for its fun, 90s vibe and performances from Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelson and the scene-stealing cat named Goose. Following its high pre-sale numbers, Captain Marvel is tracking to make around $100 million during its opening weekend, when it blasts to theaters on March 8.
