CAPTAIN MARVEL Star Brie Larson Shows She's Ready To Join STAR WARS With Awesome New Social Media Post

Brie Larson is already part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but she's keen to join a Galaxy Far, Far Away and proves that she's got plenty of "Jedi Realness" in this new social media post. Take a look!

Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame star Brie Larson has made no secret of the fact she's a huge Star Wars fan, and actually said back in February that she would like to play a Jedi. 

Well, in a new post from the Oscar-winning actress on Instagram, she's shown that she's ready, willing, and able to head to a Galaxy Far, Far Away in a future Star Wars movie. Given her pre-existing relationship with Disney as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there's probably a good chance this could happen somewhere down the line. 

It was during an interview with Samuel L. Jackson that Larson first expressed her interest in joining the long-running franchise, and she didn't appear at all phase by the pressures that would come with that. "I got to hold his lightsaber! He brought it to me on set on May the 4th, and I cried. It was so cool. I wanna be a Jedi."

How would you guys feel about the Captain Marvel star becoming a Jedi Knight?

greatest Easter Eggs, references, and cameos!

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...
