Academy-Award winning actress Brie Larson was named as the Captain Marvel for the Marvel Cinematic Universe recently—ending months of speculation regarding the casting of one of Marvel’s most beloved female heroes, and the only female hero to get a self-titled film on the entire MCU slate. 

Not taking the opportunity lightly, Larson is already putting in the necessary groundwork for the role.

For those of you who don’t speak social media, this is just Larson’s way of showing fans she is getting in touch with the source material. 

“The fact that Brie, even after she won her big Academy Award, was interested in coming in and talking to us about the character, really fell in love with this character, really fell in love with the notion of being a symbol that can inspire everyone… We were very lucky,” recently gushed Marvel headman Kevin Feige. “We were very lucky that she agreed to come on board and agreed to come out tonight at the end of the panel.”

Captain Marvel hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
