Captain Marvel breaks the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s glass ceiling this weekend, starring Brie Larson as the first female superhero to get a solo entry in the massively popular blockbuster film series. Like Wonder Woman before it, Captain Marvel was preemptively trashed by misogynist trolls on a mission to sink the film’s Rotten Tomatoes audience score, because girls. That very mature,...

Common perception following the Oscars was that Brie Larson made a strong statement without saying a word by not clapping for Casey Affleck upon his win for Manchester By The Sea. Now, in an interview with Vanity Fair, she essentially says that the interpretation of her actions—or lack thereof—was accurate. “I think that whatever it was that I did onstage kind of spoke for itself,” she said....

Samuel L. Jackson once dealt with a plane full of snakes, and recently visited Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. But soon he’ll take a trip to Unicorn Store.

After trapping Michael Fassbender’s head inside a large papier-mâché mask in last year’s Frank, director Lenny Abrahamson has decided to give Brie Larson a little more wiggle room with an adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s best-selling novel, Room. The film follows Larson’s Ma and her 5-year-old son Jack (Jacob Tremblay), who are being held against their will in a small 10-by-10-foot shed. Jack...

Captain Marvel stands her ground, and the MCU welcomes a new kind of hero
The Marvel Moment

At the end of this month, Avengers: Endgame will bring to a head Marvel’s decade-long experiment in shared-universe storytelling. To mark the occasion, The A.V. Club is revisiting all 21 movies in this mega-franchise through a single, significant scene in each: not the best or most memorable scene, necessarily, but the one that says something about the MCU as an ongoing...

Whether or not you were surprised by Casey Affleck’s Best Actor win last night, there’s no denying that there was a mixed reaction to his victory for Manchester By The Sea. Not long after his nomination was announced, Constance Wu criticized the Academy for showing such recognition to someone who had to settle out of court with two women who alleged he’d sexually harassed them during the...

Marvel has taken its sweet time introducing Captain Marvel to its wide world of superheroes, and, according to a new report, it is going to continue moving at a lethargic pace when it comes to finding a director for the project. Variety reporter Justin Kroll posted on Twitter that the studio is “in no rush” and is “waiting to get a script they are happy with.” Kroll explains this is because...

Anticipation is high for Marvel’s forthcoming 1990s-set superhero film Captain Marvel, and fans have likely already committed hours to dissecting the trailer that dropped this morning.

Operating on the principle that you don’t turn down the chance to work with a Best Actress Oscar winner and a bona fide superhero—especially if you’re Apple, of all people—the tech giant/entertainment wannabe has just locked down Brie Larson for a new series about the CIA. Specifically, Apple has just given a direct-to-series order to a TV adaptation of Amaryllis Fox’s memoir Undercover:...

Perhaps you haven’t heard of rising indie artist Brie Larson, but she likes to cover songs on her guitar while swaddled in a big black hoodie. New to the music scene, Larson posts her covers to Instagram in the most chill way possible, hoping to one day strike the interest of a record producer who can pluck this bright, young talent out of her bedroom and into pop stardom.

Look, we all understand that in the age of every superhero movie getting like 16 different trailers, it’s hard to generate excitement for each new iteration of a two-minute commercial for your movie. But Marvel, calling a new Captain Marvel trailer a “special look” at the movie doesn’t make it not a trailer.

Before she makes her MCU debut, here’s what you need to know about the history of Captain Marvel

Though it’s hard to imagine now, characters like Iron Man and Captain America had faded into relative obscurity in comics until Marvel Studios decided to make do with what it could still get the rights to. Since then, each member of The Avengers has become a star both in the comics and in the larger world of pop culture, to the point where the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become so large and...

Marvel is still refusing to reveal any real spoilers for Avengers: Endgame, beyond any of the recent teasers at least, and so it’s not particularly surprising that a press conference for Endgame in Los Angeles today featuring most of the surviving heroes (plus directors Joe and Anthony Russo and studio head Kevin Feige) leaned pretty hard on relatively meaningless softball questions and...

The MCU’s done a pretty good job of keeping the top-secret projects they’re working on, well, secret, especially when it came to the plots of Infinity War, Captain Marvel, and now Endgame. So tightly bound were the shoots that even the cast didn’t know what was going on half of the time. As it turns out, Brie Larson wasn’t even told what she was filming when it came to the post-credits scene...
