AVENGERS: ENDGAME Star Brie Larson Unaware Of YouTube Trolls; Addresses CAPTAIN MARVEL 2 Status

Remember all those guys on YouTube rooting for Captain Marvel to fail? Well, Brie Larson didn't even know they existed until recently! The Oscar-winner also addresses the status of the planned sequel...

Ahead of Captain Marvel's release, the movie was heavily criticized on everything from Rotten Tomatoes to YouTube, and the latter featured a lot of videos with male fans attacking the Marvel Studios release and hoping it would fail (including former DC Comics artist Ethan Van Sciver). 

Unfortunately for those trolls, when Brie Larson was recently asked about these videos, she made it clear they're not something that were ever on her radar. "They did? Oh. I didn’t even know."

"I don’t have time for it, you know?" she continued. "The things that I have extra time to really look at are, like: Am I eating healthy food? Am I drinking water? Am I meditating? Have I called my mom today? When you have a mission and things that you want to do — and my time and my energy is so limited — it just becomes so clear as to what I want to spend it on."

"And that’s just not what’s of interest to me."


Larson was also asked about the status of Captain Marvel 2 ,and while she's looking forward to returning to the role, it sounds like she's till waiting to hear back from Marvel Studios. 
 
"No. I don’t really know what job I’m going to do next, which is very exciting. I don’t even know what my life’s gonna be! And most of this year, you know, I had to do the press tour. But then the last half of the year, I’ve just been focusing way more on just doing what I want to do that’s completely outside of my job. I just feel like it’s been this incubation time. Whether it’s incubation because I’m developing projects, and also incubation myself, being, like: OK, I’m going to be turning 30. I’ve been working a lot. I need to just like change it up and see what’s there for me — see who I am now. And which ways that I want to grow."

The Last Blockbuster Store



While Blockbuster's time has been and gone, one store remains in Bend, Orgon. It's become something of a tourist trap given the nostalgia factor and all but what you may not realise is that Captain Marvel actually travelled there to shoot scenes for this movie.

It would have been easy for Marvel Studios to just create a mock-up or use VFX to bring this location to life but the fact they used the real deal is a testament to the authenticity they were looking for while bringing this 90s set adventure to the big screen. 
 

ASIS



You may think that the entire subplot of a lightspeed engine has been added at random by Marvel Studios but, in reality, this is a plot point which has been borrowed from the comic books. 

In the Ultimate Universe, Mar-Vell came up with the ASIS aircraft (the same name used in the movie) that he was working on while disguised as Dr. Philip Lawson. Some changes are obviously made - including making Mar-Vell a woman - but it's easy to see how that comic influenced what ended up on screen. 
 

Street Fighter



Captain Marvel takes place in 1995 but Carol Danvers went missing in 1989. However, flashbacks to the time she spent with Maria Rambeau in Pancho's Bar show her playing Street Fighter II: Champion Edition

Well, that wasn't released until 1992 so it's hard to say whether this was a continuity error on Marvel's part or whether she was supposed to have been playing a different game back then (the first one, perhaps).
 

Budapest



During a conversation with Carol, Fury talks about once doing spy work in Budapest. Could this have been a reference to the mission that went horribly wrong for Black Widow and Hawkeye which we first heard about in The Avengers

It seems unlikely given the timings but it's hard to imagine that Marvel Studios didn't realise this would lead to fans speculating about a possible connection when you take into account the fact that #EverythingIsConnnected (supposedly).
 

Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. 



During the course of Captain Marvel, we return to a location which is bound to be familiar to those of you who recently watched The Avengers. Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. is indeed housed in the same facility that Loki ended up destroying in that superhero ensemble and it's actually quite sad to think about Fury's decision to ultimately weaponise the Tesseract after Mar-Vell's hope to end wars with it. 
 

The Avenger Initiative



Right at the end of Captain Marvel, Nick Fury is shown working on a plan to assemble a team with remarkable abilities for the "Protector Initiative." However, upon learning that Carol Danvers' callsign in the Airforce was "Avenger," he makes a key change and sets the stage for Iron Man's post-credits scene.

In the comics, Carol's callsign was "Cheeseburger" after she ate one of those and threw up during a test run. Needless to say, Marvel Studios ditching that was probably for the best. 
 

Stan Lee's Cameo



The late, great Stan "The Man" Lee makes one of his final appearances in the MCU here in a cameo which actually harkens back to a real-life event. 

Shown on the train Carol boards to track down a Skrull, the legendary comic book creator is reading the Mallrats screenplay and practising his lines. Those of you who haven't seen the movie may not realise that he actually made an appearance as himself in the Kevin Smith helmed release and seeing as Captain Marvel is set in 1995 (the year that hit theaters), the timing works perfectly.
 

Carol's Missing Memories



Carol Danvers suffering from amnesia isn't new even though Marvel Studios uses it to great effect in this movie to tell her origin story in a somewhat unconventional manner. 

In fact, the hero forgetting her past has happened on three separate occasions now; the first came when she first got her powers, the second when Rogue inadvertently took her memories, and the third when she had a brain lesion and once again completely forgot who she was.
 

Lieutenant Trouble



While Captain Marvel's memories of her past are cloudy at best, she remembers calling the young Monica Rambeau "Lieutenant Trouble." Well, it turns out that was a nickname given to an entirely different character in the comic books. 

In those, the young "Kit" Renner was referred to by that moniker by Carol while she was back on Earth but it seems as if Monica has taken that for herself as she's someone who looked up to the hero in a similar fashion in this adventure.
 

Kelly Sue DeConnick's Cameo



Comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick is well-known for being the woman responsible for transforming Ms. Marvel into Captain Marvel and her work is said to have heavily inspired the movie.

Well, keep a close eye on Carol as she leaves that train and you'll notice a woman with red hair and glasses who suspiciously looks the hero up and down only to receive a similar glare. That is indeed DeConnick, making a well-deserved cameo appearance!

The Right Stuff



While Carol is walking through Blockbuster Video, she stops and takes a look at a movie called The Right Stuff. As you may recall, that revolves around a group of American Astronauts and Air Force test pilots who go "higher, further, faster" in a bid to push mankind to the next level. 

It's no wonder this catches her attention as the hero is bound to have watched it at some point! 
 

The Mid-Credits Scene



As expected, Captain Marvel sets the stage for Avengers: Endgame with a mid-credits scene featuring Captain America, Black Widow, War Machine, and Bruce Banner discussion Nick Fury's pager before it finally stops sending a signal and Carol Danvers arrives looking for Fury. 

Right now, it's hard to say whether the movie will begin with Carol having already met the team or whether this was a scene taken somewhere from the first act. We'll find out in six weeks...
