Brie Larson has proven she’ll fit right in with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The 20-Minute Kettlebell Shred
The 29-year-old shared a video of herself on Instagram Sunday slamming down a 7kg sledgehammer, and tagged—rightfully so—Thor star Chris Hemsworth.
Larson’s followers praised her for her strength in the comments section, writing, “Captain Marvel is the new Thor.”
Another said, “Love this!!!! I’d love to see Captain Marvel and Thor fighting beside each other.”
Hemsworth has played the Uru hammer-wielding god of thunder since 2011. Larson will be joining him in the superhero movie franchise in 2019 when she stars in Captain Marvel.
The film, which premieres on March 8, centres around a fictional superhero named Carol Danvers (a.k.a. Captain Marvel) who is an officer in the U.S. Air Force.
In preparation for the role, Larson has shown her followers she’s stepped up her strength-training routine, and has shared many of her workout methods on social media.
In a video of her working out with a resistance arm band, she wrote, “A strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done.”
There are several reports online that speculate Larson’s Captain Marvel will join Thor, the Hulk, and the other Marvel superheroes in Avengers 4. According to The Wrap, we “have every reason to believe [Captain Marvel] will serve as a direct lead-in to the battle with Thanos, thanks to the post-credits scene in “Infinity War.”
