Marvel Studios announced that in 2016, Brie Larson would play the title role in his upcoming Captain Marvel and us I have waited patiently (maybe not so). I only grew up with BTS insights into their intense training and costumes. If you have not been followed, Larson is an absolute madness both on screen and on screen. The wait is almost over (the movie debuts on March 8!), But here's the reason why Larson is already a superhero in our book.

. She is incredibly strong.
You've probably seen this come from Larson's strength. We're impressed, she posted videos on Instagram throughout her education for her role, and she's obviously made the whole "superhuman force" tight. She posted videos of her 400-pound hip bursts, did push-up push-ups on chains, and climbed up a wall as if it was NBD. Recently she posted a video in which she pokes her hip at 275 pounds and then immediately eats a biscuit. #Gates.
. 2 She has the best answers to online hate.
Larson has trained us all when it comes to dealing with trolls. When the first Captain Marvel trailer fell, people began to write that Larson smiled in the promos (dramatic eye roll). Larson responded to a post on her Instagram story. "Latest News: They can be you," she wrote. "That means you can smile or not, you can be strong in the way you want to be, you can belong to who you are, if someone else tells you, do not trust him." To draw attention to a sexist double standard, she also took Photoshops images of male actors who played superheroes with a smile.
Another time, she shared her point of view on what makes people write common messages on the Internet, and asks trolls to just stop. "This feeling of trolling someone on Twitter is what I call adrenaline loneliness," she tweeted. "I'm sorry you feel alone, hurting others will not solve that."

3. She is committed to sexual harassment.
When Casey Affleck won an Oscar despite allegations of sexual assault, Larson presented his award but refused to clap. Larson was one of the many women who had launched the Time's Up movement to combat sexual harassment and inequality, and since then she has been a vocal advocate of the movement and has made it clear that she's for Inclusion driver uses . Clauses in contracts with the actors demand variety in cast and crew.
. 4 She keeps it real.
Celebrities, they are like us! But seriously, Larson is surprisingly understandable as she is a famous actress. Yes, she has a glamorous squad at times (that's part of the concert), but she admits she gets spikes on her face and does not get her hair washed. She has also dealt with the same kind of body uncertainty that all women face at some point. Larson posted a flashback photo on Instagram and wrote about a lack of confidence before a film festival. "Before we went to the ceremony, I felt embarrassed, I was afraid I was too fat, too ugly and too depressing to be honored, I did not want to take pictures," she wrote in the caption.
. 5 It is realistic when it comes to reaching ~ balance ~.
In a recently published InStyle interface Larson rejected the idea of a perfect balance in life. "Balance is a kind of ridiculous concept," she said. "It's not that you find balance and you're done, you always try to find it." She does not expect to find the formula for perfect bliss.
That is, she seems to vary her, sometimes she wanders, teaches knitting or dances, others raises crazy amounts of weight to feel strong. "The movie does not really look like I can actually lift 225 pounds – it does not matter to anyone else, but for me it was," she told InStyle (19459004). "To transcend this limit of what for a woman to be muscular and strong and to own and use her own body as a tool that felt significant. "
