Brie Larson And Samuel L. Jackson Talk Captain Marvel In New BTS Video


The first trailer for Captain Marvel landed this week, giving us new insights into the next installment in the MCU. Now, ET has followed that up with a behind the scenes video in which stars Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson discuss the upcoming film in a little more depth.

For starters, Larson appears in the clip in her red, blue and gold suit, which was finally revealed to us earlier this month, after set photos had only given us a look at her initial green and silver Starforce costume. Here, the actress speaks about how it was a relief to finally share the outfit with the world after months of keeping it under wraps. She also admitted that things got pretty emotional the first time she tried it on.

“What’s crazy is these movies are so secretive, you don’t get to share that. Now I can share it! Now we can be like, ‘Oh my God! I was trying different pieces on. Then when I finally put it all on together, I was just staring at myself in the mirror and I did get emotional…The first time I put it on I was like, ‘I’m like a Disneyland character! This is crazy!’”

Meanwhile, the most notable thing about Samuel L. Jackson’s role in Captain Marvel is that, due to the film being set in the 1990s, the star will be de-aged via cutting-edge CGI in order to portray a Nick Fury who’s much younger and less experienced than the eyepatch-wearing S.H.I.E.L.D. director we’re familiar with. On this, Jackson joked to ET that the process was like giving him botox, and said that the key to making it work was using his old movies for reference.

“These dots are my Botox. I’ll look younger by the time the movie is out. I did a couple movies in the ’90s that they can go back and use that face.”

Larson and Jackson will be joined in Captain Marvel by a hugely talented cast. Jude Law plays the Starforce commander, who’s identity is curiously being kept a secret, while Ben Mendelsohn is Talos, the leader of the shapeshifting Skrulls. Former MCU stars like Clark Gregg, Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou are all back in action, as well, and Annette Bening likewise features in an as-yet unknown role.

You can catch Captain Marvel when it lands in theaters on March 8th, at which point, we’ll be introduced to the MCU’s most powerful hero yet.
