Image of the day: Brie Larson reading Captain Marvel while wearing a Captain Marvel costume

The cat was already out of the bag, but it was still a huge moment for Marvel Studios to officially announce the casting of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. So, how’s she preparing to bring Carol Danvers to life?

The actress tweeted an excellent pic of herself reading Captain Marvel Volume 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More, the modern-day run put together by Kelly Sue DeConnick and David Lopez. It was always a foregone conclusion that Marvel would draw from DeConnick’s take on the character (it's pretty much defined the modern Carol Danvers), but it’s great to see Larson digging into the canon for inspiration.

Oh, and did we mention she’s literally wearing a Captain Marvel costume (which look like fancy pajamas, but still)?

Captain Marvel is set to open March 8, 2019.
