When you’re the new Super-Hero on the block, you work real hard on fitting in and learning from the veterans around you. That is what Brie Larson tried to do with her time on the set of Avenger’s End Game. She also was a bit worried that knowing the secrecy that Marvel films are shrouded in, she might slip up and say something she shouldn’t. She expressed these feelings in a recent interview with USA Today.
I just never wanted to feel like I was going to slip up or that I was going to say the wrong thing. I was like, ‘I can’t live with myself being the one that spoils something.’ So I really just deleted it. I tried my best to journal it if I want to recall it and go, ‘Oh yeah, that was a crazy time.’ And I’m excited when the movie comes out to finally be able to talk about it and go, ‘Yes, this was crazy.’ But my family doesn’t know. I haven’t talked to anybody about anything because I’m just a very diligent secret-keeper.
Marvel probably wishes that Mark Ruffalo or Tom Holland were as skilled at secret keeping as Larson is. The one thing that wasn’t kept secret was the casts willingness to help her as she prepared to headline her own film. She extolled the virtues of her fellow Marvel heroes:
I just got to be like junior superhero and ask them questions like, ‘Hi, I’m the new kid! So what kind of protein bars do you eat and when do you train? Is your costume comfortable?’ I was just able to learn so much, and everybody was really kind and helpful. So I got to learn the ropes a little bit before I was thrown into this thing where I’d be by myself.
Judging from the first clips shown, Larson learned her lessons well and with the buzz surrounding the film, in no time she will be the veteran sharing her wisdom to other new heroes. Are you excited to see Brie Larson take on the Skrulls as Captain Marvel? What do you think her role will be in the climatic clash with Thanos in End Game?
